March is an exciting month at Discovery. A week ago, close to 500 people attended our Literacy Night where teachers led seminars for parents and students on how to help children improve the quality of writing. The planning committee, including Mrs. Moon, Ms. Sampsel, and Mrs. Kaiser, has grown this event over four years now. Parents and children learned together about how to write transitions, how to use a writing checklist to assess the quality of their writing, and how to develop ideas and improve writing craft. The PTSA provided dinner and all appeared to be enjoying themselves.
This Friday, March 25, is the PTSA Talent Show at Pacific Cascade Middle School and next Wednesday, March 30, is our annual Science Fair. We are looking for-ward to these events celebrating student growth and learning as well.
Of course, third through fifth grade teachers are approaching state assessments (Smarter Balanced Assessment). Within a few days, you should find a link on the front of our website informing you of testing dates, links to practice tests, and general information pertinent to this test. This information can help you understand the format of the test, and the nature of test questions. We ask that you make sure your children are especially well rested on and near testing days and that you help support and encourage your child with test taking of any kind. We know that children perform better when they feel encouraged and confident. Our students work hard at school, week in and week out, so the SBA need not feel scary or overwhelming for them.As always, if you have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me. I always appreciate the smiles, suggestions, and opportunities to discuss your interests or concerns.
Sincerely,Marti ShefvelandPrincipal of Discovery
