Cordelia Hills Update

Message from the Principal

Thank you kindly to all of parents and PTA members who loved on our staff for Staff Appreciation week. Our teachers and staff were overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of our community. WE appreciate your support!


State Testing. STATE testing and MAP testing continues again this week for all grades. Please make sure your child is here and on-time each day. We appreciate your support in making sure they are well-rested and ready to go each day.


Back GATE reminders: Thank you for making sure you are only accessing the back gate if you are walking to school. I am aware of a neighbor who was making obscene gestures towards those who were in the court on Friday afternoon. For safety's sake, I ask that you do not engage the neighbor. Please report any of this behavior to the school or you can call or text my cell phone at 510-367-2550 to report it.

CAASPP is a California State Summative Assessment for all students starting in 3rd grade. Students test in English-Language Arts and Math. 5th grade students are also assessed in science.
