SBAC Testing Schedule

This month, we will begin to administer the Smarter Balanced Field Test to students in grades 3, 4, 5.   The SBAC Field Test will expose students to Common Core Mathematics and English/ Language Arts questions and problems. Although testing is scheduled over a three-week window for each grade level, each student will be administered a computer-based assessment on only four mornings.

Please see our ADJUSTED SBAC testing schedule below due to the SBAC delay.

Club Invention   Grades 1-5

Club Invention is an exciting afterschool program where your students will learn through hands-on fun. Children in grades one through five are immersed in adventures that encourage creative problem-solving and enhance their understanding of essential STEM concepts. Cost is $59 per child for 8 sessions.

Echo and Axon: A Prototyping Adventure™ module:Inspired by the comics of real life inventor superheroes from the National Inventors Hall of Fame, children create solutions to STEM-based challenges including creating alternative energy power source prototypes, chasm-crossers and water filters, and apply mathematics to rescue Echo and Axon. Teams are challenged to prototype their own story using an inventor’s tool chest to design devices for Echo and Axon, and their little camera-bot, Gidge! Finally, the experience ends with a celebration as participants find the inventors within themselves.
