From the Principal's Desk


Dear Parents,

As we finish the second trimester, our school is transitioning toward Common Core learning and strives to offer students alternative experiences that extend beyondtextbooks. Teachers are testing new Common Core Benchmarks that examine students’abilities to apply concepts and explain their reasoning rather than answer multiplechoice questions. These benchmarks also include performance components that will give teachers vital insight as to the degree of progress each student is making this year. Fornow, the benchmarks will be hand-graded, but after this pilot test, they will be tabulated on computer software in order to help teachers guide instruction.

To further enrich our students’ mastery of computer skills, our 4th grade teacher, Mr. Chuo, has graciously extended the computer training in his 4th grade class to other grade levels. He has recently started an after-school computer enrichment class that will showstudents how to navigate cloud software and work with programs such as Google Docs. The greater exposure to computer-based learning implements both actively engages and excites our students, who are eager to expand their options for learning. Agua Dulce teachers have responded positively to Mr. Chuo’s program and will acquire new skills forplanning lessons through computer technology.

Yours very sincerely,

Reyna E. Smith
