Superintendent's Message - May 2015
Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we are heading into our last full month of the school year, we’re thrilled to report that the first-ever Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) is wrapping up smoothly. The state will be providing test results to individual students and their families later this spring. If you have any questions on the SBAC, please visit http://www.moreland.org/SBAC.html.
The final appeal hearing for the Wei Yu Charter School will take place Wednesday, May 6th before the California State Board of Education. Thank you to all of those families who signed the postcard, or sent an e-mail, in support of the District and Santa Clara County’s decision to deny the Wei Yu Charter School petition. The postcards will be brought up to Sacramento on Wednesday as a demonstration of the community’s strong stance on this issue. We will update the District website on Thursday after the final decision is made.
Our District calendar will be a great asset for you this spring as you plan to attend the many events happening throughout the District. From Open Houses to music concerts to promotion ceremonies, spring is full of reasons to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. Of particular note, Latimer will be having a 6th grade Information Night on May 7th at 6:30pm in the Latimer MU Room. Open Enrollment for incoming 6th graders has been extended until after this event to allow parents to tour the Latimer campus and meet the staff. The District calendar can be found on our website at www.moreland.org, click on District Calendar on the top left side.
In addition to the spring events, planning for summer offers some exciting opportunities as well. Our Moreland Extended Care program is offering a summer camp at Baker Elementary School, with a number of exciting one-week sessions in June, July and August. For more information and to register your child, go to our website, www.moreland.org/MorelandSummerCamp.html
Enrichment summer classes are available through the Moreland Education Foundation’s (MEF) Enrichment Summer Program (ESP) as well. Classes are available in art, music, science, Lego robotics and much more. There are classes available for every grade level, and the two sessions run from late June through mid-July on the Country Lane campus. For more information and to register your child, go the MEF website, www.mefhome.org.
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful spring and I look forward to seeing you at one of our schools.
Meet Incoming Superintendent, Mary Kay Going
