Month of May-Message from the Principal

Month of May-Message from the Principal, Mr. Orloff

Dear Parents and Students,

STAR testing for grades 2-6 will be held from May 1st through May 18th on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. There will be no testing on Mondays and Fridays. In order to help our students the cafeteria will be offering breakfast on test days. Please keep in mind that STAR is an annual statewide assessment that measures student performance in English Language Arts and Mathematics. During the two weeks of STAR testing, please make sure your student comes to school on time and attends every day.  It is important to not schedule non-emergency medical appointments on the days of STAR testing. Students should get enough rest and nutrition to make sure they can perform their best on these tests. STAR test results provide the school's Academic Performance Index and are the indicator of content mastery. Therefore, please emphasize the importance of these tests with your children. Our students usually perform well in state testing. For more information about STAR and to view released test questions, go to www.star@cde.ca.gov.
