Dear Balboa Academy ES Community,
Our Director, Ms. Magee, at the PK music program in May shared the good news that our PK would remain in their current location for another five years! This month, students, teachers, and parents voted on a BA slogan and the winning slogan is "Be B.A.D., Do good!" (B.A.D. = Balboa Academy Dragons).
Our Spring MAP testing season is almost complete. Parents will be receiving the results by email soon. This week, students took part in the ES Writing Assessment. Teachers will score and use the data to continue to improve students' writing skills. Parents will receive the scores and the student writing sample by email in June.
We look forward to the month ahead. ES students will participate in the last Color Team activity for the school year on June 1st. Teams will meet again next year and welcome new members. Parents are invited to attend ES STEAM Day 2016 on June 8th from 8:30 to 10:00 am. Parents and students participate in educational activities in homerooms well as in specialists' classrooms. These activities focus on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. We hope to see you then!
