ANNOUNCEMENTS Appreciating our Teachers – The first week in May is National Teacher Appreciation Week and it’s an excellent time to let your children’s teachers know how much you value the work they have done with your children this year. Please take a moment during this week to let the teachers in your child’s life know that you appreciate their work. A personal note, a flower to build a bouquet from the whole class, or any small, thoughtful token mean a great deal. We are fortunate to have an amazing and dedicated teaching staff. They work long after school is over to design effective and differentiated lessons for our students. This week, please join me in thanking them for their dedicated service to our students. The Reflective Parenting Class (in Spanish) continues on Tues. mornings at 8:45 am Congratulations Readers! – A shout out nd to the students in Ms. Jimenez’ 2 grade class who earned the most points from Edison in the Read to Succeed 2 contest through KidBiz! Good job readers! Facilities Update –Contractors are continuing to work from 3:30 pm to midnight to install air conditioning units in each classroom. Work on the back staircases, playground, and outbuildings continues on schedule. New Math Adoption – Next year SMMUSD elementary schools will be using the My Math! Program as a tool in our teaching of Common Core Math. We could use some volunteers in the library as we catalogue and disseminate these resources. Please see Library Coordinator Carol Garcia Ramirez if you have some time to share. Lost and Found – Please come check the Lost and Found racks before the end of the month. There is a huge collection of sweaters, sweatshirts, lunch boxes, water bottles, etc. that we’d love to see returned to their owners. Warm Food in Lunch Boxes – If you are sending warm food with your child in a lunch from home, please pack it in a thermos-style container so it will stay warm. Staff are not allowed to heat food for students.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: YEAR END ASSESSMENTS, PART II The article in last week’s Semanario talked about year end assessments and the new state assessment system. We’ve been talking about the new California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) off and on for the last year, when California students took the pilot tests. Since these new Common Core aligned tests are rd th th about to begin again for our 3 , 4 , and 5 graders, we held a parent workshop about the tests the evening of April 23. To make the information more widely available, we’ll be posting the presentation we used as the basis for that meeting (prepared by SMMUSD’s new Director of Assessment Evan Bartelheim) on the Edison website and producing a translation into Spanish. We try to offer another workshop later this year to answer questions about how to interpret scores. But I also wanted to repeat some of the great questions that emerged during the workshop here. Which grades will take the SBAC? In Elementary Schools, only nd third, fourth and fifth graders will take the SBAC tests. 2 grade is no longer included. All three grades will take Common Core aligned tests in th English and Math and 5 graders only will take the CST in Science. When will SBAC testing happen at Edison? The week of April 27 rd th th 5th graders will take the CST Science Test. 3 , 4 , and 5 graders will take the SBAC in English Language Arts the week of May 4, and all three grades will take the SBAC in Math the week of May 11. Most of the testing rd th for 3 and 5 grades will take place from 8:30-10:30 am, so on time th arrivals are critical. Most 4 grade testing will take place from 10:3012:30. A specific schedule is posted on grade level bulletin boards. How long will the tests take? These are not timed tests, but the suggested number of hours of testing for English and Math together is 7 hours. The fifth grade science tests will take about two additional hours. We break the tests up into sessions of about 1.5-2 hours per session. What should I be doing to prepare my student to take these tests? These assessments are measures of skills students have been working on all year, so there is no specific content for them to study. They are not the kind of multiple choice tests where students can memorize a “right answer.” Our students have had opportunities in class to take practice assessments and learn to take assessments on line. Just send them to school on time, well-rested, fed with a good breakfast and calm. These are not high stakes tests for students or for the school and students will do best if they are not anxious. They are just one of many tools that we use to look at student progress. Ballet Folklorico – Afterschool on Wednesdays through 5/27 $2.00 per class

Apreciando a Nuestros Maestros - La primera semana en mayo es la Semana Nacional de Aprecio de Maestros y es un tiempo excelente para hacerles saber a los maestros de sus hijos cuanto ustedes valoran el trabajo que han hecho con sus hijos este año. Por favor tomen un momento durante esta semana para dejarles saber a los maestros en la vida de su hijo/a que ustedes aprecian su trabajo. Una nota personal, una flor para crear un ramo de parte de la clase entera, o cualquier obsequio cariñoso significan mucho. Somos afortunados de tener personal de maestros dedicados. Ellos trabajan mucho después de que terminan las clases para diseñar lecciones efectivas y diferenciadas para nuestros estudiantes. Esta semana, por favor acompáñenme en darles las gracias por su servicio dedicado a nuestro estudiante. La clase de Reflexión de Padres (en español) continúa los martes a las 8:45 a.m. ¡Felicidades Lectores! – ¡Felicidades a los estudiantes en el salón de 2º grado de Maestra Jiménez quienes acumularon la mayoría de puntos en Edison en el concurso Leer para Tener Éxito por medio de KidBiz! Informes de Instalaciones – Contratistas continúan trabajando desde las 3:30 pm hasta la media noche para instalar unidades de aire acondicionado en cada salón. Trabajo en las escaleras de atrás, el patio y edificios de afuera continúan en su horario. Nueva Adopción de Matemáticas ¡El año que viene las escuelas primarias de SMMUSD estarán usando el programa ¡Mis Matemáticas! Como una herramienta en nuestra enseñanza de Matemáticas de las Normas Comunes Principales. Podemos usar algunos voluntarios en la biblioteca para catalogar y distribuir estos recursos. Por favor hablen con la Coordinadora de la Biblioteca Carol García Ramírez si tienen tiempo para compartir. Perdido y Encontrado – Por favor vengan a revisar los ganchos de perdido y encontrado antes del fin de mes. Hay una gran colección de suéteres, sudaderas, loncheras, botellas de agua, etc. que nos encantaría ver regresados a sus dueños. Comida Caliente en las Loncheras – Si están mandando comida caliente con su hijo/a en su lonchera de su hogar, por favor empáquelo en un traste estilo thermo para que se mantenga caliente. Al personal no se les permite calentar comida para los estudiantes.

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: Exámenes y Asesoramientos de Primavera El artículo en el Semanario de la semana pasada habló sobre los asesoramientos de fin de año y el nuevo sistema estatal de asesoramiento. Hemos estado hablando sobre los nuevos Asesoramientos de California del Rendimiento y Progreso Estudiantil (CAASPP) de vez en cuando durante este año, cuando los estudiantes de California tomaron los exámenes de prueba. Porque estos exámenes nuevos alineados con Normas Comunes Principales están a punto de comenzar de nuevo para nuestros estudiantes en los grados 3º, 4º y 5º, tuvimos un taller de padres sobre los exámenes la noche del 23 de abril. Para hacer la información más disponible, pondremos la presentación que usamos como una base de esa reunión (preparado por el nuevo Director de Asesoramiento Evan Bartelheim) en la página de internet de Edison y produciendo la traducción al español. Trataremos de ofrecer otro taller este año para contestar preguntas sobre cómo interpretar los resultados. Pero también quiero repetir algunas de las preguntas buenas que salieron durante el taller aquí. ¿Cuáles grados tomarán el SBAC? En las escuelas primarias, solamente los estudiantes en el 3º, 4º y 5º grado tomarán los exámenes de SBAC. El 2º grado ya no es incluido. Los tres grados tomarán los exámenes alineados con las Normas Comunes Principales en inglés y matemáticas y solamente los estudiantes de 5º grado tomarán el CST en ciencia. ¿Cuándo ocurrirán los exámenes SBAC en Edison? La semana del 27 de abril los estudiantes en el 5º grado tomarán el Examen de Ciencia de CST. Los estudiantes en los grados 3º, 4º, y 5º tomarán los SBAC en Artes de Lenguaje en Inglés la semana del 4 de mayo, y los tres grados tomarán los SBAC en matemáticas la semana del 11 de mayo. La mayoría de los exámenes para los grados 3º y 5º se llevarán a cabo de 8:30 – 11:30 am, así es que las llegadas a tiempo son importantes. La mayoría de los exámenes del 4º grado se llevará a cabo de 10:30 – 12:30. Un horario específico se pondrá en los tableros de boletines de cada grado. ¿Cuánto tiempo se tardarán los exámenes? Estos no son exámenes con límites de tiempo, pero la cantidad de horas sugeridas para los exámenes de inglés y matemáticas juntos es 7 horas. Los exámenes de ciencia de 5º grado se tomarán aproximadamente dos horas adicionales. ¿Qué debo de estar haciendo para preparar a mi estudiante para tomar estos exámenes? Estos asesoramientos son medidas de habilidades en las cuales los estudiantes han estado trabajando todo el año, así es que no hay contenido específico para que ellos estudien. No son los tipos de exámenes de múltiples opciones donde los estudiantes pueden memorizar una “respuesta correcta.” Nuestros estudiantes tuvieron oportunidades en la clase ara tomar asesoramientos de práctica y aprender a tomar asesoramientos en el internet. Solamente mándenlos a la escuela a tiempo, bien descansados, que hayan comido un buen desayuno y que estén tranquilos. Estos no son exámenes de alto valor para los estudiantes ni para la escuela y los estudiantes harán mejor si no están ansiosos y pueden tomar los exámenes al mismo tiempo que sus compañeros. Los exámenes estatales son solamente una herramienta que usamos para mirar el progreso estudiantil.

A Message from the Superintendent Dear Edison Families: Our community has raised $2 million for our kids and we have about 70 days to raise $2 million more! Last year, the Board of Education and I asked our community to raise $4 million dollars to fund innovative education and enrichment programs for all our public schools by donating to the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation (SMMEF). The $2 million raised thus far is a huge statement of support. However, if we do not reach the $4 million goal, the School Board will have to make difficult decisions about what will be funded next year. We all wish that our state funding provided for these programs. But, it doesn’t. The state of California spends about $9,000 per child, in contrast to other states like New York and New Jersey that spend more than $17,000 per child. You can help make up this difference. Please go to www.smmef.org to make an investment in your child’s education today. Thank you! Sincerely, Sandra Lyon Superintendent, SMMUSD

Un Mensaje de la Superintendente Estimadas familias de Edison: ¡Nuestra comunidad ha recaudado $2 millones para nuestros hijos y tenemos 70 días para recaudar $2 millones más! El año pasado, el Consejo de Educación y yo le pedimos a nuestra comunidad que recaudaran 4 millones de dólares para financiar programas de educación y enriquecimiento innovadoras para todas nuestras escuelas públicas mediante la donación a la Fundación de Educación de Santa Mónica-Malibu (SMMEF). Los $2 millones recaudados hasta el momento es una gran declaración de apoyo. Sin embargo, si no llegamos a la meta de $4 millones, la Junta Escolar tendrá que tomar decisiones difíciles sobre lo que será financiado el próximo año. Todos deseamos que nuestros fondos del estado proporcionen estos programas. Pero, no lo hace. El estado de California gasta alrededor de $9,000 por niño, a diferencia de otros estados como Nueva York y Nueva Jersey que gastan más de $17.000 por niño. Usted puede ayudar a compensar esta diferencia. Por favor, visite a www.smmef.org para hacer una inversión en la educación de su hijo hoy. ¡Gracias! Atentamente, Sandra Lyon Superintendente, SMMUSD

White Water is the story of a 7 year-old African American child in segregated 1963 Opelika, Alabama who becomes obsessed with the desire to taste the water from the "white's only" drinking fountain and sets out on a quest to do the unthinkable: drink from it. The tale is written in such a humorous fashion that one can easily forget – except for certain scenes – about what was really taking place during that time comparative to the acclaimed movie ‘Selma’. ~Larry Buford, movie critic
