Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the school auction yesterday, donated items, or placed absentee bids and especially those who bid on our classroom projects. I can't thank Ms. Summer and the students enough for working so hard on our canvases and classroom quilt.
This week at school the third, fourth, and fifth year students will be taking EOG exams on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Students should try to eat a hearty breakfast and get a good night sleep before the exam. Other than that, they should be encouraged to relax and have fun demonstrating what they know. They will be taking the CAT, California Achievement Test. As a non-public school we are required to take a nationally normed test as opposed to a state test. Parents can expect to get the results before the end of the school year on June 11.
To celebrate the end of the testing period, we will go on a field trip on a historic walking tour of Hillsborough. The Historic Hillsborough Society is hosting History Days and we will tour various sites in our community including the Burwell School, the Hillsborough Museum and we will hopefully have a chance to meet the Mayor. The cost of the trip is $5 and students should bring in their money no late than Friday morning. We are trying to arrange transportation through Orange County Bus, but chaperones may be required.
Students should continue working on their STEM Fair projects. If someone is still looking for a project, please encourage your child to meet with me SOON. Projects should include a tri-fold board and experiment using the scientific method. If you have any questions, please contact me through email, school, or home: 919-933-0040.
