State Testing Information

We wanted to share important information about the upcoming state assessments, Smarter Balanced.  Smarter Balanced assessments are computer-based tests that measure student knowledge of California’s English language arts and mathematics standards.  These assessments include performance tasks that challenge students to demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems. These assessments also provide a rich source of information about how to support students and program development. Preparing our students for the challenges of the future will take time, patience, and persistence.
 
The Smarter Balanced assessments are untimed and will be completed over approximately 4 -5 days. We have divided the test into manageable sections, so that students are not testing for extended periods of time. Students who warrant support or accommodations due to special or language needs will receive them as they are embedded in the test.  All students are allowed to take breaks as needed.
 
The testing schedule is as follows...
 
SDC - April 19 & 21, and May 21
3rd Grade - April 25 – May 20, 2016
4th Grade - May 9 – May 13, 2016
5th Grade - May 9 – May 13, 2016
6th Grade - April 26 - April 28 and May 3 – May 5, 2016

Principal's Letter

Hello Families
May has arrived and we are fully engaged in state testing.  Please continue to have students here in attendance and make sure they have plenty of rest and a full breakfast.
Hopefully, you also received word regarding our new schedule which will begin next year.  We will be moving to an all-day kindergarten next year and we will no longer have an early/late schedule in first grade.  This will present a wealth of instructional time for our students as we move forward.
Speaking of, if you received word or not?  Have you heard that Antelope Creek has a new mobile app?  Antelope Creek will roll out a new school mobile app for your phone in the next couple of weeks!  The app is available now and we will be introducing it fully at Open House later this month. It's never been easier to access event calendars, class information, lunch menus, bell schedules, district information, fundraisers, volunteer opportunities, and so much more!  By installing our app, you will also receive important announcements and friendly reminders about what’s happening at our school. Please download the app to your phone and give it a try.  We will be updating it with the school calendar and sending out lots of great information to you.  This is one way we are keeping up with our strategic planning mission to increase communication.  We hope you enjoy!  Please see below for details on downloading the app to your mobile device:
 
Search for our school or use these links to download our app today. You'll have a handy icon on your phone and with just a tap or two, you can be connected to our school! Don't forget to accept push notifications so that you receive our text alerts!

Let’s finish strong as we move towards another great year at Antelope Creek.  As you look towards the summer, please be aware that all of the local libraries have great programs to offer and this is the best way to keep the kids engaged with their reading during the break. Have a safe and relaxing summer and please keep the kiddos reading.

GO FALCONS!!
