MESSAGES FROM ROOM 23
Dear students: Enjoy a summer of fun and relaxation, and most importantly, set aside time to read! Begin by checking out the 4 Cs link below and reading the many eMagazines that have been shared. Check out the Colonial News eMagazines, Life Science eMag, and California Government eMagazines. You worked hard through the very last day of school. You should be proud to have completed and submitted all final projects. It was a challenging goal. Now it's time to jump into summer vacation. Be healthy and safe!
Our students created a Prezi for the Baldwin Stocker Talker. You will find the online link from Peachjar which you should be receiving through email. If not, you can find a Peachjar link from the district and also our school website. Click on it to find the latest publication of Talker.

The Interim tests will help teachers practice administering the actual tests while providing them some feedback as to how their students performed. The Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments (actual) will be given later in the school year (spread across a couple of weeks in May).
TenMarks Math Survey
If you read the TenMarks math letter in your child's Weekly Work envelope sent home today, you will have seen the directions on how to sign up for a TenMarks online math account. I'm hoping you were successful in creating a parent account so that you can view the results of your child's math quick quizzes. Today, your child took the first of many to come. Please take the Google Form survey after you have created (or tried to create) a TenMarks math account so that I will know if you were able to join. Here's the survey link:
It would be great if you could submit your Google Form answers by Friday.
Read Blog Updates!
Reminder: Please read Blog Updates together with your parent(s). It is important to keep informed! Please don't forget. Thanks!
