Preparing for SBAC begins now!!!!! December 4 & 5

Each and everyday Gomper Gators walk through the "GATES of SUCCESS", students are working toward accomplishing and mastering end of year goals as readers, writers, mathematicians and most importantly as critical problem solvers of new information learned.


On December 4 & 5, all 3rd - 8th-grade students will be taking a "mini" SBAC assessment in ELA and Math. The "mini" assessments will support students and teachers in identifying areas of strength and areas to continue to grow in meeting end of year attainment goals.


Additionally, 3-8 grade students will continue to take a "mini" assessment each month in ELA and Math until the real SBAC assessment in May.


Questions or concerns, regarding your child's scores/progress please contact your child's teacher(s).

During the month of December and January, please ensure that your students are here every day as there are many assessments in all subject areas.


Many of these assessments are directly tied to their grades on their Report Card in Middle School and Achievement Report in Elementary which are apart of their permanent record/transcript.


Additionally "many" of these assessments are online and require passcodes/logins and time specifications set by the district.


To keep track of how your child(ren) progress please access:

PaentVUE - View their district assessments

Schooloop (MS only) - Daily Grades, assignments, etc..


Lastly, consistent communications with your child's teacher(s) are always = a good partnership for your child's success.

Scholarly Dress Expectations - January 6, 2020

Scholarly Dress is the expectations for students at Gompers - January 6, 2020.

As discussed in August at the Orientations and Back To School Night, Scholarly dress is the expectation for Gompers Students.


I am saddened that the number of students not in the daily scholarly dress expectations is increasing. LBUSD is a uniform district for students in grades K-8, since 1994.

Please ensure your student(s) are in scholarly dress each day as they walk through the "gates of success".
