Elmonica Families,

School Report Card

Our 2019-20 school profile is posted on our school webpage under About Us>School Profile>Oregon Report Card. There is also a link on this page to school profiles for other years and other schools. The 2019-20 district profile is posted on the district report card webpage.


State report cards began when the 1999 Oregon Legislature passed a law requiring every public school and district to receive a report from the Oregon Department of Education about how they are performing overall. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015, replaces the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act and affords states greater flexibility. ESSA encourages schools and educators to innovate and create systems that address local needs. As a part of this work, the Oregon Department of Education redesigned the School and District report cards to engage and inform families about their school’s approach to learning, academic and extracurricular offerings, and student performance. Reports cards also serve as an important tool for continuous improvement planning by local and state policymakers, in conjunction with the communities they serve.


The 2019-20 school and district profiles do not include statewide assessment data, class size data, or attendance data as a result of the necessary statewide school closures and the implementation of Distance Learning for All. The profiles present all available data not impacted by the state’s response to COVID-19.


At Elmonica WE are committed to using this information to help tailor our school improvement plans and academic programs to meet the needs of every student. You’ll find our current school improvement plan here: During the year I will communicate with you frequently about student achievement and programs in place at our school to foster student learning and success.


If you have questions about our report card or would like a print copy, please contact me. You may also have suggestions for improvements. Please share them! Thank you!


Boleta de calificaciones de la escuela

Nuestro perfil del año escolar 2019-20 está publicado en la página web de nuestra escuela y lo puede encontrar al hacer clic en About Us>School Profile>Oregon Report Card (Sobre Nosotros, Perfiles Escolares, Boleta de Calificaciones de Oregón). También hay un enlace en esta página a los perfiles de las escuelas para otros años y otras escuelas. El perfil del distrito del año escolar 2019-20 está publicado en la página web de boleta de calificaciones del distrito.


El reporte de desempeño de las escuelas y distritos escolares de todo el estado empezaron cuando la legislatura de Oregon en 1999 aprobó una ley que requiere que todas las escuelas públicas y del distrito reciban un reporte del Departamento de Educación de Oregon acerca de cómo les va en general. La Ley Cada Estudiante Triunfa (ESSA por sus siglas en inglés), firmada por el Presidente Obama el 10 de diciembre de 2015, reemplaza la Ley Que Ningún Niño Se Quede Atrás (NCLB por sus siglas en inglés) y otorga a los estados mayor flexibilidad. ESSA anima a las escuelas y educadores a innovar y crear sistemas que atiendan a las necesidades locales. Como parte de este trabajo, el Departamento de Educación de Oregón rediseñó las boletas de calificaciones de la escuela y el distrito para involucrar e informar a las familias sobre el enfoque de la escuela al aprendizaje, las ofertas académicas y extracurriculares, y el desempeño de los estudiantes. Las boletas de calificaciones también sirven como una herramienta importante para la planificación de mejoras continuas por parte de los políticos locales y estatales, en conjunto con las comunidades a las que sirven.


Los perfiles de las escuelas y los distritos para el período 2019-20 no incluyen datos de evaluaciones a nivel estatal, datos sobre el tamaño de las clases o datos de asistencia como resultado de los necesarios cierres de escuelas a nivel estatal y la implementación de la Educación a Distancia para Todos. Los perfiles presentan todos los datos disponibles no afectados por la respuesta del estado a COVID-19.


TODOS NOSOTROS en Elmonica nos comprometemos a usar esta información para acoplarnos a los planes de mejoramiento y a los programas académicos de la escuela para satisfacer, de esta manera, las necesidades de cada estudiante. Usted encontrará nuestro plan de mejoramiento escolar en curso: <insert link to school learning plan>. Durante este año, yo me comunicaré frecuentemente con usted acerca de los programas y aprovechamiento estudiantil de nuestra escuela para fomentar el aprendizaje y el éxito.


Si usted tiene alguna pregunta acerca de nuestro reporte de desempeño o desea obtener una copia impresa, por favor póngase en contacto conmigo. Usted también puede darnos sus sugerencias para mejorar. ¡Por favor compártalas! ¡Muchas Gracias!

MILAGRO THEATER DIGITAL PRODUCTION

Elmonica Families,


We have the amazing opportunity to have access to a bilingual play Blast Off! brought to us by the Milagro Theater right here in the PNW!


As the premier Latino arts and culture center of the Pacific Northwest, Milagro has provided extraordinary Latino theatre, culture, and arts education for the enrichment of all communities since 1985. Through a grant, they are presenting a bilingual digital production to our students, family, and communities.


The production, Blast Off! is about a young passionate girl, Valentina, who has been recently inspired by the first Latina astronaut, Dr. Ellen Ochoa. Valentina is now dreaming of a big, bright future of becoming an astronaut—one that many think is impossible, especially for a young Latina.
