Week of May 7, 2012
Dear COES Families,
While STAR testing is near completion (make-ups take place this week), we are continuing our battery of year-end assessments at all grade levels.
This includes DIBELS testing for students in grades K-2, and SRI testing for students in grades 2-5.
These assessments measure students’ reading progress, and is conducted three times throughout the year.
Additionally, we have year-end theme tests in language arts and math in the coming weeks.
We encourage punctual attendance until the end of school in order for teachers to assess all students in a timely fashion.
Report cards for trimester 3 will go home on the last day of school, Wednesday, June 6.
Thank you for your ongoing support!
Charlie Appelstein, a nationally renowned expert who works with children and teens with emotional, behavioral, or learning challenges, will be speaking in American Canyon on May 9th.
Entertaining and inspiring — to parents, professionals and community members — he is back in the Napa Valley by popular demand!
Attendees leave his talks with strength-based practices to use immediately with children of all ages.
These techniques parallel Napa Valley Unified School District’s use of the PBIS/BEST program and foster a positive school climate in which all youth can succeed.
