Birthday Celebrations

Birthday Celebrations - We realize that birthdays are a special time for many students. Outside treats will no longer be part of student birthday celebrations here on campus. Student birthdays will be celebrated in class with the teacher acknowledging birthdays in a special way.

Performance Assessments in ELA

Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will be in effect in 2014. ESD is slowly implementing elements of the standards including the assessments. As a trial, students will be taking ELA performance assessments January 22-24. These assessments will not be used for student grades and will not be reported to parents since many of the skills are not required in our current standards. The purpose of the testing is to evaluate what the school must continue to work on and to give direction to the district. Students will complete a Performance Assessment in Math in February.

Health Care Coverage
More children and teens qualify for free or low-cost medical, dental, and vision care coverage programs through Healthy Families or Medi-Cal. Call the school for more information or visit the Healthy Families website.
