Dear Babcock Families,

 

National teacher Appreciation week is May 2 - 6, 2016.

Let’s show our fabulous teachers and staff how much we appreciate them and everything they do for our children! It’s always fun for children to get involved. If you wish to participate, please have your child bring the following during the week of May 2nd – May 6th for their teacher:

  • Monday, May 2: A piece of fruit

  • Tuesday, May 3: A flower from your garden

  • Wednesday, May 4: A handmade card from your child

  • Thursday, May 5: Something for the classroom (school supply item)

  • Friday, May 6: Bring your teacher a treat

 

We begin State testing Monday, May 2, 2016 for grades 3-6.  

Each spring, most students in California participate in the statewide testing program, which is the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. The tests in the CAASPP System provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career.

This year, your child will take the following assessments for ELA and mathematics at Babcock:

  • Smarter Balanced tests for ELA and mathematics or

  • CAAs for ELA and mathematics

  • California Standards Test (CST) for Science for Grade 5

  • Tips for Testing:
    Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast!
    Make sure your child is prepared!
    Remain positive!

     

Student Uniform Policy

The staff of Babcock School believes that every student should be allowed to learn free of distraction.  An environment which is safe and caring will only increase our students’ abilities to be as successful as we know they can be. Students are expected to be in uniform beginning with the first day of school and will wear uniforms every day except on those scheduled days determined by staff. In addition to classroom students will receive classroom consequences if not uniform. Every effort will be made to bring the child into compliance, including calling home and seeing what is available in the uniform closet.

 

Volunteer Opportunities

We need parents to sign up to volunteer at upcoming Book Fair Volunteers on May 23-27.  We also need volunteers for lunch supervision starting at 11:00 AM.  Please let our front office staff know you’re available to support our school.

 

Best Wishes,

Principal La Rue
