RE: May Report

Here is an overview of the key activities we worked on in relation to teaching and learning

this month.

Monday’s: Most of our time was once again used for department collaboration time.

However, we will be using this upcoming Monday (5/22) to prepare for the Smarter Balance

(SBAC) testing with teachers.

Other information: Our school accreditation process is mostly done. We are still awaiting

the final written report, but overall the feedback we received was very helpful. We did

receive some high marks as well as some areas to improve. I am very appreciative of my

entire staff as everyone had a role in helping to keep us accredited. As you may recall we

have now been accredited for 86 consecutive years.

State Testing: We are beginning the state testing cycle here this month. We held math

testing last week, and have the English Language Arts (ELA) on Tuesday (5/22) and

Wednesday (5/23). It the ELA test where we need to have a late start because of the

number of students involved. We also have our Biology End of Course (EOC) on

Wednesday, June 7th. This coincides with our 2nd annual Most Valuable Parent (MVP)

breakfast for our seniors and their parents.

Graduation: The current plan is to hold graduation outside. However, if the weather is

inclement like it was last year, we will go inside. Each graduate will receive 8 tickets for the

inside graduation ceremony.
