Welcome To Pine Hill School
May 13-17 Is The California Standards Test for 2nd & 3rd Grade
This spring, students throughout California will be taking the California Standards Test (CST) including Pine Hill students in grades two and three. In our district, CST testing will begin Monday, May 13 and will go through Friday, May 17.
These tests measure how well students are achieving California standards in each subject area tested.
Results of the CST Program tests provide valuable information about the academic achievement of all students. It is important, therefore, that students do their best on those tests. On testing days, please make sure your student attends school, gets a good night’s rest, and has a healthy breakfast. If for some reason, your child must be absent, make up testing will take place from May 20th through May 22st. Test results for the CSTs will be sent to each student’s home address on a CST Student Report within 20 days after the school district receives the reports, usually in August. Individual results are confidential and will be shared only with parents or guardians and the student’s teacher(s). Please keep these reports for use when talking to teacher(s) about ways to support your student’s learning. Please call our office if you have any questions.
50's Day / Ice Cream Social This Friday
On Friday, May 17, we will be having 50's Day at school. Students can dress in 50's style. Wear your poodle skirts. The ice cream social will be from 6:00-7:30 PM. Ice Cream sundaes $1.00. Photos $1.00. Please join us for this fun family event! Parents, please keep your children with you and stay inside the cafeteria. There is no supervision on the playground.
