Dear Michelson Community,

 

I hope you have a happy and restful Spring break.  It is amazing to think we are already charging into April.  As we enter these last two months, we have a very busy school calendar.  Our third, fourth, and fifth graders will participate in the Statewide CAASPP testing May 1-15.  We need everyone's help to make sure the kids are attending during that time frame and arrive on time, and have had the building blocks of success with a great night's rest and a nourishing, high-protien breakfast!   We sure appreciate your help with these items as we know it makes a difference in performance.  The kids have worked so hard this year, and the CAASPP test is their time to "show what they know"!  Below is the URL for the CAASPP practice test website if you want to take a tour or have your student try a practice test at home.  The skills are rigorous.

As you may have heard, the district is transitioning to a standards based report card next year. I was so proud of our elementary teachers who all came together for grade level meetings to define the assessments that will correlate to the standards.  The work was hard and eye-opening and collaborative.  The goals is that parents will be able to understand with complete transparency what a student knows and what skills are emergening.  More information will be forthcoming.  We will also be moving to an information system called Aeries that will include a feature for parents to view assignments and grades in real time.  As with any transition, a new roll out is a process, so we will keep communicating how it all works as the pieces are finalized.

 

I hope you have a wonderful time with your family.  Rest, relax, and renew!

 

Yours truly,

 

Louise Simson
