Principal's News: February 23, 2017

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we have been back from winter break for almost two months now. There is so much that has happened already and even more that will be happening between now and the end of the school year. I want to make sure you are kept informed about these events.

  • First, I want to give a tremendous Thank You! to our Walteria Academic Alliance (WAA). On February 11th, they put together their second annual poker tournament. This fundraising event was fun for the adults who participated and our students continue to benefit from their hard work and generosity. Keep an eye out for more WAA events, and support them in their efforts to improve the educational experience of all our students. If you missed the event this year, keep an eye out for it next year. It is one that is worth being a part of.
  • Another noteworthy group that provides a benefit to our students is Donor's Choose. Take a look at the projects that our teachers are trying to fund through this great organization (see the link on our webpage). In particular, take a look at a project geared towards benefiting our TK and Kinder kids. Mrs. Radeski's project (click here to view) is about to expire. If you or someone you know wants to make an impact for our little ones, share the link and think about donating.
  • Finally, our 3rd through 5th grade students will begin interim assessments through CAASPP. This will provide teachers with a picture of how the students are progressing on grade level standards and allow the students to practice on the SBAC platform. These assessments are not meant to be stressful; students should not worry about anything other than doing their best. If you are interested in seeing what this testing platform looks like, click here. You can take a practice test yourself and see what our students will be assessed with. More information about the CAASPP system and SBAC will be made available as we approach out testing window in mid May.

It is impossible to write about all of the wonderful things and hard work taking place at Walteria. I'm sure that you have witnessed the undeniable buzz of school children and their teachers hard at work as you come and go from school.
