California English Language Development Test
September - October 2014
As parents register their children they are asked to complete a survey on languages spoken in the home. If a student speaks another language they are given a California English Language Development Test (CELDT). This test is required by the California Department of Education. If a student does not pass the test they are then considered English learners, and given support to assist them with the development of the English language. Research shows it takes about 5-6 years for students to attain proficiency in English.
If your child is an English learner, we will be we will be administering the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) September - October. The CELDT assists us in knowing how your child is progressing in learning the English language and how we can better support them. We encourage you to discuss this test with your child.

Please Cover All Textbooks
Our school is implementing a rule where ALL TEXTBOOKS need to be covered beginning this year. This is important because books have been damaged in the past by being carried back and forth from school. Some ideas to covering books can be with paper bags from grocery stores and gift wrap.
