Principal’s Message 4/22/13

Date: April 22, 2013 Author: kristin Categories: Uncategorized

Hello BA community.

Education Exchange
Thursday-Saturday I joined a district team of administrators at the Education Exchange in Napa, visiting schools focused on “technology-infused project-based learning” and attending workshops around developing and designing schools for the future. I’m excited to share what I’ve learned, and to continue learning with all of you, to support our districts’ goals to provide innovative, engaging 21st century learning experiences for all our students– in schools that are structurally designed to facilitate those experiences.

School Site Council 3:00 Thursday 4/25
At our next SSC meeting I’ll share more about the conference, as well as updates on the district’s strategic planning. Resource Specialist Liz Green and Speech and Language Pathologist Bakul Soman will present on BA’s Special Services. We will discuss goals for BA’s Single Plan for Student Achievement, due in June. School Site Council is open to the public, and meets in the office conference room.

STAR Testing April 29-May 10
Our annual state testing for 2nd – 4th graders will take place during the window of Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 10. The actual testing dates will vary. The 2nd and 3rd graders take 6 subtests over 6 mornings, finished before recess. The 4th graders take 4 subtests over 4 mornings, also finished before recess. The reason for the 2-week window is to insure that students who are absent on the day of a subtest have ample opportunity to make it up.

I ask that you please do your best to be sure your child arrives on time each day, and that you schedule necessary doctors appointments, etc. for the afternoons, thank you.

Best wishes,
John Triska
