Dear Anna Yates Families,
We have now entered the third trimester and final trimester of the 2018-2019 school year together! We have a few items we want to update you on so that we complete this school year safely and successfully academic year:
Beginning April 30-May 30, students in grades 3-8 will be participating in state standardized testing called the CAASPP. Please assist our students in doing their academic best but having them arrive at school daily and on time to maximize test preparation, intervention, and the test taking block. Ensuring students have eaten supports students being able to focus and do their best on the test. We do provide breakfast in the cafeteria beginning at 8:00 a.m. and will provide a small snack during the test. The link below provides parent friendly information regarding the CAASPP. Any further questions, please feel free to ask the principals or teachers; Open House (5/8) will be a great opportunity to ask any questions as well.
Meeting Our Attendance Goal:
To promote positive attendance during CAASPP testing, all students on time and present for every day of their testing will earn a popsicle party and additional recess.
Please help us end the year by reaching our goal attendance of 96.5%!Let's make it "two" the end of the year with GOOD ATTENDANCE! Between 3/20/19 and 6/5/19, all students that have less than two absences, two tardies, or one absence and one tardy will be invited to an "End of Year Attendance Party".
Improving Drop Off/Pick Up:
Using the newly painted loading zone as a drop off rather than a parking zone has greatly improved the flow of traffic during morning drop off. Parking on San Pablo or behind the fire lane on 53rd St. is an option for any families wanting to park and walk their students into school in the morning and keeping our loading zone free for quick and safe morning departures.
We thank you for all your support,
Samantha Carter and Eddie Scruggs Smith
