At Home and At School Staff Appreciation Week is May 3-7

Staff Appreciation

This year Arete is going to recognize ALL educators who help teach out students! We have days when we will honor at home teachers (parents and grandparents) and days when we will honor at school staff (clerks, custodian, computer tech, secretary, librarian, teachers, etc). Please see the flier for all the details. We also provided a link so families who don't attend the Resource Center can participate. Feel free to download and print the flier, have your students complete it, and take it to their teacher of choice, whether it is at Arete, Liberty Learning, Grace Classical, or a fun enrichment. All families are invited Wednesday 5/5 and Thursday 5/6 for donuts and coffee at 9am and yoga at 9:30. Please put it on your calendar and come get treated!

May CAASP Testing- Third-Eighth Grades

CAASP testing will begin in May. Please sign up early to get a spot that works with your schedule.The US Department of Education is requiring state testing this year. PRSD will be conducting in person testing only. The tests have been greatly reduced due to the pandemic. These assessments help us monitor what our students have learned throughout the year. They also help us to see if there are areas in our curriculum or program that we need to improve upon. The state of California uses these assessments to make sure our students are working toward grade level standards. All third through eighth grade students are required to take four assessments- two each in Math and Language Arts. Also, fifth and eighth graders need to take a Science assessment. Monday, May 3rd the Arete Resource Center will be open for testing only. Tuesday, May 4, K-2 will attend Resource Center as normal and the other classrooms will be used for testing.
Please sign up for the following slots:
*3rd grade- 1 slot
*4th grade- 1 slot
*5th grade- 2 slots
*6th grade- 1 slot
*7th grade- 1 slot
*8th grade- 2 slots
Students should plan on staying from 9am-12pm and should bring their charged Chromebooks and any books/supplies needed to complete lessons when they are done testing for the day. PLEASE have kiddos bring in their OWN water bottles and snacks. Due to COVID and food allergies, we will not have any snacks on site to hand out. We have extra chromebooks on site for students who do not have an Arete Chromebook (Those are the only kind that have a password for our internet). Please come at 8:50 to check out a Chromebook if needed.
