Christine J. Anderson, Ed.D., Superintendent 650 Paseo Dorotea Palm Springs, CA Jennifer Geyer and Devlinn Clinton, Co-‐Principals (760) 416-‐8250 Fax: (760) 416-‐8253 April 2016 Citizenship: We understand the importance of contributing to our school and community. We show compassion and kindness towards others. We show humility and consider the needs of others as we contribute to the community as a whole. Dear Parents, Welcome Back! We hope you and your children enjoyed the time off. We are gearing up for our final push for the school year. Please make sure that your child is here on time everyday because the end of the school year is approaching quickly and we have so much more to accomplish. Please make sure that your child is getting to bed early and primed to learn all that they can each and every school day. The growth we see in these last few months is amazing and we don’t want to see anyone miss out! State testing will begin the last week of April with our 5th graders leading the way with their Science CST. Followed by all 3-7th graders beginning their Language Arts and Math tests the following week. State testing will run the full month of May and attendance is incredibly important to the success of your child as they prepare for and take these tests. Parents thank you for being roll models of good character as you drop off and pick up your students each day. We know that with construction occurring on our neighboring streets the traffic may be frustrating but little eyes and ears are always watching and listening. As we focus on citizenship this month we appreciate your support in continuing to exemplify the qualities of character counts in all situations. We have completed all of the GATE testing for the year and we will be receiving the results sometime in June. You will be receiving a letter regarding testing along with the specifics dates and times of testing. Please try to make any appointments on days that your child is not testing. The new safety plan is done and will be available in the office for anyone to read. Attached you will find the CVC Board Elections Timeline-2016. Congratulations to Yvonne Rawlings, our Teacher of the Year!
