Week of April 23, 2012
Dear COES Families,
STAR testing begins this Tuesday for all students in Grades 2-5. To view the testing schedule for the next two weeks, please click here.
Students will be tested in English language arts this week, with math testing taking place next week.
5th Grade students will take the science test next week as well.
Testing begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. Students arriving to school late on testing days will remain in the office or library until the class testing period is over.
Make-ups will take place the week of May 7th.
Please encourage your child to get sufficient rest, and eat a hearty breakfast on testing days. This will help your child’s attention and focus for these important tests.
STAR test results will be sent home in the mail later this summer.
This Wednesday is Secretary’s Day, and we are so fortunate to have the BEST school secretary!
Jill Madron (“Miss Jill” as she is affectionately known by students) has been at Canyon Oaks since its opening, and previously worked at Donaldson Way Elementary.
Miss Jill makes sure everyone in our school is taken care of each and every day.
Whether a student needs a band-aid, a teacher needs supplies, a parent question regarding enrollment, or if the principal needs this and that – Miss Jill does it all with her kind and courteous nature.
Miss Jill plays an important role in the success of our school, and we thank her for her hard work.
If you have a moment this week, please thank Miss Jill for all she does for our school!
