Ramona's SBAC Testing Schedule - April 17 - May 2, 2014
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It’s hard to believe we are approaching trimester three already! It has been a terrific year so far.
This year our staff and students have been working hard transitioning to Common Core state standards. Our staff and students just participated in the Smarter Balance Assessment practice test. This practice test gives a great overview of how the new standards are addressed. You can access SBAC below along with a check list of technology skills your child needs to be successful.
Please practice this assessment and complete the check list with your child. As you will see, Common Core is gearing our students towards college and career readiness with 21st Century Skills such as communication, collaboration, creativity and innovation and critical thinking. We are very excited about this necessary change. As a result, Ramona students will be globally competitive!
It takes a team to create a successful environment where our students will thrive. The school-home connection is most valuable to the success of our students and we appreciate your support by having your child in attendance each day, checking daily agendas, and keeping in constant communication with our teachers.
Our staff and students have shown hard work and dedication on a daily basis as well as by participating in various Intervention opportunities after school and during lunch, otherwise known as Power Lunch. Not only do our students work hard academically, they are also enjoying a well-rounded school experience by participating in yearbook, leadership, National Jr. Honor Society, color guard, band, musical theatre and sports, just to name a few.
We want to ensure your child’s safety by practicing our emergency drills, communicating with our district and city officials to assist us in making our school sites the safest possible.
We need your help and participation at Ramona. It’s not too late to participate in PTO, ELAC and School Site Council meetings. Please call the office for more information.
Again, thank you for partnering with us to make
