50th ANNIVERSARY & ADULT DINNER TONIGHT!

Dear PW Parents and Guardians,
I know your student’s teacher has messaged to you over the last several weeks that we are beginning our Statewide Assessments this week. However, I wanted to send a quick message out as well.
The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, or CAASPP, which has replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting, or STAR Program, is the new state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. This year, CAASPP includes computer adaptive tests in English-language arts and mathematics as well as paper-based tests for science.
This year our 3rd through 6th grade students will be testing Tuesdays-Fridays between April 19-May 20. Students will spend no more than 60 minutes a day testing. To learn about the types of questions on the computer-based test, you and your child can view the practice test online at the California Department of Education (CDE) Smarter Balanced Practice Test page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.
To help support your student, here are a couple of tips. Please make sure your child is:
This doesn’t need to be a time filled with anxiety and stress, it’s actually a time to celebrate and show the efforts of our hard work. We know are students will do well and look forward to seeing the results in the Fall.
Please don’t hesitate to share any questions or concerns you may have.
