SJ Tech Museum
--------------------
Thanks to all that volunteered to drive.  We now have enough drivers. Here are the drivers I 
have so far: Anita Miranda, Xuejin Bai, Jamie Grieco, Xiaoli Sun, Ellen Cummings, Carla 
Boufarhat, Jeong Mi Kim, and DeNora Talbot

Alviso Adobe Field Trip
--------------------------
Alviso Adobe has cancelled our field trip as their naturalist has retired and they do not have 
a replacement at this time.  We are planning to replace this trip with a docent that can 
come to our school and put on an interactive program.  We are reaching out to them now 
and will advise once a replacement is found.  

SBAC Testing Dates
-----------------------
We will be having state testing on the following dates:  
ELA:  April 30th and May 12th
Math:  May 20th and May 27th
Please avoid making vacation plans and doctor appointments on these dates.  Testing 
results will go home this summer for your review.  These tests will be based on Common 
Core Standards and are very different than the tests students have taken in the past.  
Please see information forwarded to all parents from Mrs. Berglin as well as the notice that 
went home before break with additional information.
