Get Ready Bear Valley....here comes the last trimester of the school year. It is hard to believe that two-thirds of the year is behind us but there are some exciting events coming in this last trimester.
Our biggest event is the field testing of the California Assessment for Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) which will assess the progress of students as they dive into the Common Core! This test replaces the STAR assessment given each Spring. Since this is a field test the scores are not distributed to schools or parents. It is merely a chance to "test" the new assessment out. Most of the assessment is computer based so we will put our infrastructures to the test. Testing begins March 18 and completes May 18.
Our 8th Graders will also be given the science component of the STAR assessment during the week of May 19 - 23. We will have a special schedule for the two days of testing and will distribute that as soon as possible.
Other events coming in the last trimester are our Talent Show, Band and Chorus Concerts, Trimester Parties, Eighth Grade Promotion, and so much more. Go to our events calendar on our web page for more information.As always, I am honored to be the principal of a school that exemplifies Honor, Pride, and Respect. .
All My Best,Mr. Gotay
