Summer School

We would love to see your child be part of our summer school program! This year our program will be designed using Project Based Learning (PBL). PBL is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge. As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills. Students will be building reading, writing, math, and social skills during this four-week session.
The last day to register is May 28, 2021.

CAASPP Testing Beginning in May for Grades 3-5

As you may know, each year in the Spring, districts and schools are charged with administering the Smarter Balanced California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) to students in grades 3–8 and 11th. On March 16, 2021, the California State Board of Education (SBE) took action to move forward with the administration of the CAASPP for the 2020-21 year, but with great sensitivity to the additional stress that annual assessments can place on teachers and students.
