EAGLE NEWS! McKinley School Newsletter April 15th
As we begin the 4th quarter of school, it is important to keep in mind that students will be testing throughout the months of April and May. The district-wide assessments are Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). The specific dates are listed on the calendar on the back of the newsletter. Students in 3rd – 8th grade will take the Smarter Balance Assessment in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math common core standards. The Smarter Balanced Assessment System utilizes computer-adaptive tests and performance tasks that allow students to show what they know and are able to do. This system is based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics.
In addition, all K-8 grade students will take the MAP test to measure what students have mastered and what they are ready to learn. The MAP data is available immediately upon completion in the month of May. Teachers can provide you with your children’s MAP data upon your request.
We need your support at home in order to prepare students to be successful and ready for testing. It is critical that students are present during testing days on time no later than 8:15 AM. Students should have a good breakfast and be well rested. Please discuss and encourage your children to do their best while taking these tests as they continue to learn in preparation for career and college readiness.
Please refer to the calendar on the back of this note.

Rotary Readers and Stockton Thunder Hockey Players come to help McKinley Celebrate Dr. Seuss's Birthday.
A huge turn out of Community Members from the Stockton Rotary Club and the Stockton Thunder Hockey Team came to McKinley School today to donate books and time. These community members donated books to the classroom and spent time reading their books to students in grades K - 4th grade. The students enjoyed the break away from their normal activities while they listened to these volunteers share their favorite stories with them. In addition to donating books to the classrooms Health Plan of San Joaquin also donated light weight backpacks and pencil cases to the students and paper to the teachers for use in their classroom. These donations are so needed and so welcomed !
Thank you so much to everyone who came and shared with our school!
From the teachers and students at McKinley School
