Wanted: Gently Used Boys Tennis Shoes

Have shoesa pair of athletic shoes that your child has outgrown?

Please send them to school or drop them off in the office for students to borrow during P.E. class. We already have many pairs of girls’ tennis shoes.

Don’t Forget: On P.E. day, children should wear sturdy, athletic shoes. Sandals, boots, and flimsy shoes just won’t stand up to all the action!

Important Testing Dates

Spring break is almost here! This also means we are getting closer to our state testing windows.Testing  Please make sure your kids are well rested and arrive on time for school. Testing will begin promptly at 9:15 AM, as follows:

April 28 – May 2 – Grade 5 English Language Arts
May 5 – 9 – Grade 3 Math
May 12 – 16 – Grade 3 English Language Arts
May 13 – Grade 5 Science MSP, May 14 & 15 Make ups
May 19 – 23 – Grade 5 Math
May 27 – 30 – Grade 4 Math
June 2-6 – Grade 4 English Language Arts

This year we are field testing the computer-based Smarter Balanced Assessment, which becomes the new Washington State assessment starting in 2014-2015. Participating in this field test allows both our students and staff the opportunity to gain some experience prior to being held fully accountable next year. This field test provides practice and experience with the new assessment system, but it does not give individual student scores.  The Smarter Balanced Assessment replaces the MSP for Reading, Writing and Math in all grades. Our fifth grade will still be taking the MSP Science assessment.

Please contact Principal T. Sean McMillan at sean.mcmillan@camas.wednet.edu if you have any questions.
