A Message From Principal Diaz

  March 2015

Dear Strathern Parents and Community,

As the cold weather continues please remember to continue to bundle up your children. You may find any lost sweaters and jackets in the Lost & Found located in front of the main office.

March will be a busy month of test preparation and reviewing Interim Assessment #2 results for both English and Math and using the results to support our students’ future instruction. We are in the process of preparing our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to take the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test. Our teachers are vigorously reviewing the Common Core Standards and using them to drive instruction in the classroom. Students also have access to the technology they will be using when they take the assessment.
