SRI & SMI Assessments Weeks: Below is a copy of the schedule for SMI/SRI Assessment Week. 2nd - 3rd grade teachers should think and have a plan for helping students prepare for the SRI assessment. SMI is still very new for us, and we will not review the data from this exam as a whole staff; however, I will send results from this test to classroom teachers. https://drive.google.com/a/ousd.k12.ca.us/file/d/0B330R_1JnvquTkJpVmdUT0hMaE0/view?usp=sharing
I received this amazing picture from our former Acorn student, Dilbert Iraheta (older brother of Sandra & Brian), in India during winter semester abroad trip!
Chants: Bilingual strand’s week
Leader of the Week: SEI strand’s week
College & Career Day: I want to make sure this is on your radar. College and Career day is scheduled for Friday March 4th. Please reach out to friends who you think would be good presenters for our students.
MLK Oratorical: Everything is all set for January 22nd. If you are interested in scheduling stage time to practice, email me dates with times you would like to go.
81st Ave Library Celebration: The 81st Ave library is turning 5 years old on Saturday, Jan 30th, and to celebrate, they are throwing a party. Derrick wants to acknowledge the partnership with Acorn and EnCompass by having a student performance/exhibition on this day. There is time from 2:30-3:00pm for either showcasing students' artwork, students to give a short performance, or anything else which would be possible. Please let me know if you would be willing to have your students present during this celebration or have ideas as to how we can help make this day special.
