I hope everyone had a restful Spring Holiday with families. It’s hard to believe that we only have 8 weeks of school left for 2015 – 16!
But we have much to do and much learning can take place in 8 weeks.
Students in grades 3 – 8 will be taking the California Department of Education (CDE) standardized examination, California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) beginning April 18. This is an important examination for the student as it is the most public document of your child’s academic progress of all assessments he/she have had this school year.
We are sending a letter home with you that contain more detailed information about this state test. Beginning last year, attendance became a major factor in determining a school’s state-wide student achievement. It’s important that your child is present for this exam. In general attendance is of utmost importance as all research has shown that students who have excellent attendance and are not tardy to school, generally learn more and progress more positively than students who do not. Please make sure your child attends school every day and on time.
Please check with your child for any information from your child’s teacher about how you may support him/her with preparation for the standardized assessments.
The TECA Annual Art Show is April 21th. The Art Show is always spectacular.
We have a Parent Community meeting this Thursday April 7 at 5:30 in the TECA gymnasium.
