Smarter Balanced Assessments

Beginning this spring, Smarter Balanced assessments will replace existing state tests in English and math for 3rd – 6th graders. These assessments offer significant improvements over our previous state tests, including constructed responses, new question types, and Performance Tasks that ask students to apply their knowledge and skills to real-world problems. Unlike our previous, multiple-choice-only tests, our new assessments include question formats that allow students to demonstrate a broader set of skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical writing. These tests allow students to go beyond just regurgitating facts to show what they know and can do.


Come and meet the new staff.

At the front desk you will see a new face, Mrs. Stearns.

In the classroom:

Mrs. Brugato - 1st Grade Teacher

Mrs. Benson - 2nd Grade Teacher

Mrs. George - 3rd Grade Teacher

Mr. Hutchins - 5/6 Grade Teacher

Mrs. Martus - Band Teacher


Immunization

Permission forms for medication, alternative transportation, etc. can be handled in August to avoid the rush.

Additional information will be sent home with the students on the first day of school

If you plan on volunteering, we sure hope so, there is paper work that needs to be filed out and sent to the district office before you can volunteer.  For instruction please >> click here.

Immunizations
Oregon state law requires that students have received appropriate vaccinations for school entry.
