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-

April has arrived and as I was working to get my yard in shape this weekend, I couldn’t help but relate those plants I was putting in the ground to the kiddos at Antelope Creek.  They have come so far and they are growing and blossoming right before our eyes!  State testing is one measure of that growth.  As we prepare and get ready we ask that you make sure on testing days that they have a solid breakfast, get plenty of rest, and come to school on-time.  All of these things will help them as they begin their journey.
We also have our annual Jog-A-Thon this month to raise funds for field trips, supplies, and school programs.  This year we will again be doing the COLOR RUN!  As the students complete a lap their shirt is sprayed with different colors.  This is fun for them and is always a memory that they carry with them in later years.  Please come and support them as they run and help us out at the same time.  We are always looking for volunteers to make this fun day a success.  Please contact Connie McElhany, our Jog-A-Thon Coordinator know if you would be like to help.
Finally, let’s make a big push here at the end of the year on attendance.  We are asking that unless your child has a temperature that they be in school.  Nothing can replace the magic that happens every day in classrooms.  We want to make sure that all of our students have the full benefit of their education and we will work with you to make sure that they can be in attendance and on time to school.  
Have a great April and Go Falcons!!
