A Message From Mr. Ramirez...
As this new semester moves forward, it is very important to keep in mind that our students in grades 3-5 will be taking the new Smarter Balanced Assessments in May. These exams, which are based on the Common Core Standards, will be taken by using a computer. Students will be tested in Language Arts and Math. This test is taken only once a year; therefore, we must keep preparing the students as much as possible throughout this semester.
Please assist us in making sure your child does his/her best on these important tests by completing all assigned work and studying every day.
