Principal's Corner

Dear Parents,

I can’t believe we are in the final stretch of the 2014-2015 school year. Before we know it we will be welcoming in 2015-2016.

I want to thank the middle school enrichment class for the fabulous “Rube Goldberg” machines that they designed and presented last week for our students and parents. I am very proud of their continued efforts and accomplishments.

As a reminder, our 7th and 8th grade students will be participating in the “Right Choice” program on Thursday, March 26th at Loomis Grammar School. This program focuses on drug use prevention and offers students the skills to resist substance abuse.  If you have not turned in the signed student permission slip, please do so as soon as possible. If you have any questions regarding the Right Choice program, please feel free to contact the main office.

The first week of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), has been completed. Our 7th and 8th grade students did a fabulous job with their attendance. Testing will continue next week for the 7th and 8th grade students, as they complete the mathematics portion of the CAASPP.  The 4th and 5th grade testing window will take place from April 13th through April 24th. The 3rd and 6th grade testing window will take place from April 27th through May 8th.

We would like to ask for your continued assistance in helping to ensure that students are present during the CAASPP testing windows. Please schedule appointments, trips, and events outside of school hours and/or outside of the scheduled testing windows in order to ensure that students are available for all days of testing.  We want to thank you in advance for your support in this endeavor.

Be sure to mark your calendars for Spring Break, which begins on Monday March 30th and continues through Friday, April 3rd.

Thank you and have a great weekend!

Sincerely,
Kevin Roche
Principal
Ophir STEAM Academy
