ANNUAL STATE TESTING!!!

It's that time again, time to show the state of California what our students know.  

This year, however, is a brand new experience.  This year all schools in California are piloting the new computer based tests.  Since this is a pilot year, no test scores will be released to parents or to schools.  The tests are simply a "test" of the system.  We are asking our students to do their best, but not to stress, because the scores will not be reported this year.  There are two types of tests, the more traditional ELA and math computer based test; and the Performance Task, a combination of teacher lesson and computer based questions.

Testing Schedule:

April 14-16: English and Math computer-based tests, one hour per day in elective classes.

April 22-24: 6th and 8th grade Performance Task, one hour per day in English classes. 

April 24-25: 7th grade Math Performance Task, one hour per day in Math classes.

April 22-23: 8th grade Science test.  This is the final remnant of the STAR exams.  We must administer this exam to 8th grade students to be "No Child Left Behind" compliant.

Please encourage your students to do their very best on the tests!

National Library Week

To promote National Library Week (April 13-19), the Simi Valley Public Library has asked for our school's help.  They would like all students, parents and staff who do not currently have a library card (the old Ventura County card is no longer valid at the new library), to fill out an application and apply for a new card.  These cards are FREE.  To make this process easier, bring completed/signed application to Mrs. Lairsey, and she will have your card delivered to our school.  The deadline to return these applications to Mrs. Lairsey is Friday, April 11.  Applications can be found on line at www.simivalleylibrary.org., you may go directly to the library and fill one out there, or you may pick one up from Mrs. Lairsey at your Hillside Library. 

Each student who returns an application or shows Mrs. Lairsey their library card the week of April 14-April 17 will receive a colorful bracelet which promotes reading, and will also be entered in a drawing and have a chance to win one of several posters.

The Simi Valley Public Library can be a great eduational source for our students.  Go on line to check out their catalog and electronic resources.
