May 2016 Newsletter
We are finishing up our testing this month with the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) for juniors, in English, math and science, the California State Tests (CST/STAR) for sophomores in life science, as well as Advanced Placement (AP) tests. Our students and staff take this opportunity to display their efforts over the past year in how well they have learned the standards. May is also the month when we will applaud our senior students who have excelled during the year at our annual invitational awards night and add the final preparations for graduation as well as the end-of-the-year activities. Our 2016 Seniors and Parents of Seniors letter was mailed in late January and is posted on our webpage. We encourage you to review this important activity information.
Our Visual and Performing Arts department has been busy with their annual Spring Concerts, Improv and Talent Shows, and many other wonderfully inspiring endeavors. Our clubs remain active in all of their activities and our students continue to inspire all of us in their passionate activism.
Our spring athletic teams continue to compete and succeed in their efforts to keep our Falcon Pride soaring high. The efforts made by parents and staff to keep our programs successful are deeply appreciated. Our summer camp information will be available on the website for your convenience.
We are so proud of Nilay Shah, Jesse Wang, and Brian Friedenberg who have all been selected as winners of a $2,500 National Merit Scholarship. These three students, along with so many others, are shining examples of just how exceptional our students are!
