Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) testing will begin on April 18. All students received a testing brochure that contains their test scores from the past two years. The school has asked students to set goals and share those with their parents.
Testing will be a school-wide and community-wide effort with all students testing at the same time each day.

PLANNING FOR SUMMER?
Now is the time to start exploring options for your student for this summer. Here are some programs to think about:

All Bay Area girls who are currently in 5th, 6th, or 7th grade are invited to apply to the UC Berkeley Girls in Engineering Summer Camps. They’ve also extended the deadline for scholarship applicants (full scholarships!).

In the summer of 2017 there will be four camp sessions:
- June 19–23
- June 26–30

- July 17–21
Program schedule: 8:30am – 4:30pm daily
