Bernal May Newsletter

BERNAL MAY 2015 NEWSLETTER

 

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

 

We continue to gain support for our technology advancement and movement into Common Core and Technology infusion. Our school will soon have some very important folks from Sacramento, state officials visiting our learning environment and discussing our proud movement for student success. Bernal is definitely gaining momentum and gaining the positive publicity it deserves.

 

ANNUAL STATE SMARTER BALANCE ASSESSMENT

The annual Smarter Balance Assessment (SBAC) will begin May 4th (ELA) and will continue through 22 (Math). These new assessments will embody both technology, computer based assessments and some activity within the classroom.

It is very important that students are well prepared for the duration of testing which can be up to 90 minutes in a given session. Students are reminded to get a good night’s rest and eat a hearty breakfast so they can be alert and do their personal best. We ask that parents do their best not to schedule any medical or dental appointments during the Testing Window.

 

DISTRICT VISION AWARDS

Congratulations to Breonna Ospring (Globaloria teacher) and Samantha Fraschetti (History) as the recipients of the Oak Grove School District Quality Instruction Vision Awards. Congratulations to Brian Del Fava and Samira Syad as the recipients of the Oak Grove School District Vision Award for Student Success.

They will receive their special recognition at the Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday, May 28 at 7:30 p.m., at the Forrest Williams Gymnasium located on the Herman Intermediate School Campus: 5955 Blossom Avenue.

 

GRADUATION

This year’s graduation ceremony will be held at the Oak Grove High School track located at 285 Blossom Hill Road in South San Jose on June 11 at 10:00 AM sharp! Students are expected to arrive by 9:30 AM for line up. No tickets are needed to attend this 1 hour ceremony.

Plenty of parking will be available. A professional photographer will be on the field to capture the moment.

 

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

Just to clarify a final communication, 7th graders WILL have school on Thursday, June 11th just like the rest of the school district. They will end at 11:00 and be dismissed to enjoy their summer. Our 8th graders will attend the Graduation ceremony at Oak Grove High School and WILL NOT come to Bernal on that day. Therefore, their last day at Bernal will be, technically speaking, Wednesday, June 10th.

 

STUDENT RECOGNITION

Congratulations to our very own 8th grade students, Jordan Elizondo and Victoria Sanchez Monroy, for earning the Cinco de Mayo certificate for excellence, along with a Scholarship for future endeavors. These two scholars have a bright future ahead of them. We are very proud of their leadership and academic excellence.

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

Dear 7th & 8th Grade Parents,

 

Earlier in the month you received a communication indicating that classes would not be in session on June 11th.  After confirming this with the District Office I found that if our 7th graders do not attend school on June 11th, they will be short of the state requirement of 180 days of instruction for all students.  In order to assure compliance with state regulations, we will need to be in session for part of the day on Thursday, June 11th. 

 

Thus, all 7th grade students must report to school on Thursday, June 11th at 8:00 AM.  Students will be released from school at 11:00 AM. 8th grade students do not report to school but will report directly to Oak Grove High school by 9:30 for the graduation ceremony.

 

I apologize for any inconvenience that this schedule change may have caused you.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation and for a wonderful school year.  We are so proud of the achievements of your children this year!

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Kristina Clecak

Principal, Bernal School
