“Don’t miss all the beautiful colors of the rainbow looking for that pot of gold.”



Dear Babcock Families,


I would like to share a few thoughts as we prepare for last fifty instructional days of school.  As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. You and every teacher at Babcock school share something in common: You both want your child to learn and do well. When parents and teachers talk to each other, each person can share important information about your child’s talents and needs. Each person can also learn something new about how to help your child succeed.  


Every spring, students in grades three through eight and grade eleven take the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. These assessments are part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. Results from these assessments are just one piece of information to help teachers, parents, and students understand how well a student is meeting the grade-level expectations.


I recommend you begin to take a look at the practice test. This will help you better understand the types of questions your child will be answering. You may want to walk through the test with your child to help familiarize him or her with the test format and features and answer any questions. To see a practice test, visit the California Department of Education’s (CDE’s) Smarter Balanced Practice Tests Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.


A friendly reminder we will begin taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment May 1, 2017.  These tests are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for English and Math.  Grades 3-6 will take the tests.  Students will begin the practice tests after spring break.   


Mark your calendars: 6th Grade Promotion will take June 1, 2017 at 9:30 AM.


Onward and Upward
