EAGLE NEWS! McKinley School Newsletter April 15th

Dear Parents,

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.  

 

Important reminders:

  • Avoid a late start, have your children at school no later than 8:15 AM and avoid picking up them up early.  Dismissal is at 2:20 PM.
  • We are a uniform school, and we do enforce this rule.  Make sure your children are in compliance with our uniform policy.
  • Please encourage your children to follow safety regulations and use cross walks. NO Jaywalking.  

 

Please refer to the calendar on the back of this note.

Noticias de la Escuela McKinley 15 de abril

Estimadas familias,                           

    Al comenzar el cuarto trimestre de la escuela, es importante tener en cuenta que los estudiantes estarán tomando pruebas a lo largo de los meses de abril y mayo. Las evaluaciones del distrito son “Smarter Balance” (SBAC) y Medidas de Progreso Académico (MAP). Las fechas específicas se indicanen el calendario en la parte posterior del boletín. Los estudiantes de 3 – 8 grado tomarán la Evaluación Smarter Balance en artes del idioma inglés (ELA) y las normas fundamentales comunes de matemáticas. El Sistema de Evaluación de Smarter Balance utiliza pruebas en computadoras adaptivas y tareas de desempeño que permitan a los estudiantes demostrar lo que saben y son capaces de hacer. Este sistema se basa en las Normas Fundamentales Comunes del Estado (CCSS) para las artes del lenguaje inglés / alfabetización (ELA) y matemáticas.
     Además, todos los estudiantes de K-8 grado tomarán la prueba de MAP para medir lo que los estudiantes han aprendido y lo que están dispuestos a aprender. Los datos de MAP está disponible inmediatamente después de concluir en el mes de mayo.  Los maestros pueden proporcionarle datos de los MAP de sus hijos por su requerimiento.
     Necesitamos su apoyo para que los estudiantes tengan éxito al tomar estas pruebas.  Es fundamental que los estudiantes estén presentes durante los días de prueba y llegan a la escuela a tiempo a más tardar 8:15 AM.   Los niños deben de desayunar bien y descansar bien.  Por favor, platique y anime a sus hijos a hacer lo mejor posible en estas pruebas, ya que continúan aprendiendo en preparación para la carrera y la disposición de universidad.


Recordatorios importantes:

  • Evite que sus niños lleguen tarde, traiga a sus hijos a la escuela antes de las 8:15 AM y evite recoger a los estudiantes temprano. La salida es a las 2:20 PM.
  • Somos una escuela de uniforme, y hacemos cumplir esta regla. Asegúrese de que su hijo está en el cumplimiento de nuestra póliza de uniforme.
  • Anime a sus niños a seguir regulaciones de seguridad y que usen pase de peatones y que no se crucen a medio de la calle. 

Refiérase al calendario en la parte posterior de esta nota.

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
