This is your update for the Week of April 20th

Hello Falcon Families

We hope that everyone had a fantastic Spring Break.  School will resume on Monday, April 20th at 8:00am.  Please be sure to set your alarms and get ready for school to start.

Spring and Buddy Pictures will be taking place on Thursday during PE classes.  It will be a free dress day and Twin Day this Thursday!  Dress up like twins and take buddy pictures during lunch and after-school.  Be sure you and your “twinsie” adhere to the school dress code and rules.

State testing will be April 27th- May 8th.  We will have regular school hours, please make sure that you schedule any trips or appointments around testing if possible.  Please remember that cell phones and portable electronic items must be off and put away once students come onto campus, until they are dismissed.  Our electronic use policy will be extra important during state testing due testing security.

PTSA is seeking donations of gift cards in amount of $5.00 to raffle off to students as reward their effort and attention during testing. Please send all donations to the office to Lisa Atencio.

College and career day is coming on Friday, May 15th. If you are interested or know of someone that is interested in being a speaker on that day, a form will be coming home with students on Wednesday. We are in need of 50 speakers to present to small groups of students on Career Day.  RSVP’s to speak at Career Day can be returned to 3rd period teachers or the office.

Curriculum: Common Core Standards 2014-2015

Below are sites that can assist parents and students in understanding and preparing for the upcoming shift to Common Core Standards.  These links outline what is Common Core, the rationale for a National Common Core Standard, the shifts in thinking these changes will require from educators, parents, and students, and the substantially different manner in which students will be assessed in 2014-15.  The district team of Curriculum and Instruction, as well as a team of classroom teachers, has been meeting, reviewing the standards, and creating units to prepare SJUSD for this change.  As well, the team of teachers have been piloting these units in preparation for next year’s rollout of Common Core. We are excited about the change to curriculum that fosters greater analysis and critical thinking to assist our students in preparing for their future in the 21st century.
