Week of April 30-May 4


Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported us in our first Apex Fun Run last Thursday. Thank you to our PTA for sponsoring such a terrific event.  Another shout out to all our parents for attending and volunteering to help with the run. It was truly an enjoyable event for our students and PTA will share the final fundraising totals soon!


Our students will begin CAASPP testing soon!  The schedule for each grade level was sent home last week. Students will be tested in reading, writing, and math.  Fifth Grade will also be tested in Science on May  21.  Students will need headphones for all CAASPP testing, we will provide headphones for the students or they can bring them from home.  Please help ensure your children are well rested and eat a nutritious breakfast either at home or at school. Please encourage your children to do their very best! We know they are prepared to show all they know on these end of year tests!


Local Measures testing continues for our Kindergarten through Second Grade students.  All students will be tested in reading, writing, and math.  Screen Shot 2018-04-22 at 7.26.22 PMStudents in Dual Immersion  will be tested on writing in Spanish this wee.  Please ensure your children get plenty of rest and enjoy a healthy breakfast before testing so they are able to do their very best on each assessment!
