At our staff meeting yesterday our music teacher Ms. Azar announced her retirement. After 19 years of teaching music in Western Placer (at Foskett Ranch, Carlin Coppin and Sheridan) and 2 years in Los Angeles, Ms. Azar will retire in June.

We will miss Ms. Azar, congratulate her on her retirement and thank her for her dedication to our students, staff and school community.

Attention 3rd - 5th Grade Parents

Each year, students in grades three through eight and high school participate in the
California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).
This year, your child will take the following test(s), depending on their grade
● Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments for English language arts/literacy and
mathematics in grades three through eight and grade eleven.
● California Science Test (CAST) in grades five and eight and once in high school
The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments and the CAST are online tests that
measure what your student knows and is able to do. The tests include many different
types of questions that allow students to interact with the test questions. Results help
identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so your child can get the support needed to
be successful in school.
The testing dates are as follows: English Language Arts and Math: April 29 through May 10
Science: To be determined
You are an important part of your child’s education. To help your child get ready for the
