Each spring, students in California participate in the statewide testing program, which is the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) system. The tests provide teachers, parents/guardians, and students with important information about students’ progress in math and English language arts (ELA).
- 6th-grade students will take the ELA tests May 2 – 9 and the math tests May 9 – May 13.
- 7th-grade students will take the ELA tests May 9 – May 13 and the math tests May 16 – May 20.
- 8th-grade will take the math tests May 2 – May 9 and the ELA tests May 16 – May 20. They will also take the California Standards Test (CST) for science the week of April 18th.
Parent guides to the CAASPP assessments are posted on the California Department of Education’s website at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/index.asp?tabsection=3#ssr.

2015 advanced band halloween parade
We now have a Homework Club that meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2:35 – 3:35 in our library. The purpose of the Homework Club is to provide a quiet environment where students can work on their homework and have access to a bank of computers for school-related work. We can accommodate 30 students. Students are taken each day on a first come, first served basis. Once there, students are expected to stay the full hour. A teacher is in the library, and students who are not doing homework and/or are being disruptive are asked to leave. Please note that Homework Club is not a class, and attendance is not taken. Your student should tell you if he/she is planning on attending Homework Club on a given day so that you are aware of where he/she is. Students who are struggling to keep their grades up are particularly encouraged to attend homework club. When students fall behind on homework, they can have a hard time catching up.
