A Message From Mr. Ramirez...
Welcome Back! Happy New Year 2015! I hope you had a restful and peaceful holiday break. Since we NO longer have the California Standards Tests (CST), we need to get ready for the District’s Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) in May. These exams are taken on a computer and we must continue our readiness by maintaining our good reading habits, and doing our class work, along with all homework.
Be sure your child arrives at school every day and on time, maintains good work habits and completes all assigned work. For further information on these assessments, please see your child’s teacher or visit the CCSS website: http://sbac.portal.
Dear Morningside Parents:
We greatly appreciate your support. If you have any questions, please see your child’s teacher.
