Principal's Message​

Soleado Families,
It was nice to see many of you around campus last week during Parent Conferences. This week, don’t miss our annual All School Holiday Sing on December 12th at 9:00 and the 4th and 5th Grade Winter Music Assembly on December 13th at 9:30.
Wednesday, December 12th is an All School No Homework Day. We hope you are able to make this night a Family Fun Night and enjoy some quality time together as a family. We have our Soleado Family Dine Out Night this week at Joey’s Smokin’ Barbeque from December 10 – December 13. The Homework Free Night might just be the perfect time for you to stop by, have dinner and spend some time with other Soleado families!
PVPUSD is committed to educational excellence through continuous improvement in the areas of instruction. This year, in collaboration with administration and teachers, schools are employing a variety of formative assessment measures that are designed to have minimal impact on classroom instructional time and will provide needed information that will guide the improvement and refinement of classroom instruction. Students will interact with a range of sample question types from Interim Assessment Blocks to assist our students in their preparation for state and college testing.  The California Department of Education has additional information regarding the Interim Block Assessments at https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/sbacinterimassess.asp

Understanding the degree to which our students are learning will provide our teachers with data to evaluate and inform their instructional practice in order to reach our goal of moving each student towards mastery of grade-level standards and content skills. The utilization of assessment data will allow teachers to collaborate across and within schools to formatively align practices and to ensure equity of achievement for all students. This ongoing work will also serve to drive our District's continued professional development in the area of instruction and to help to create increased common experiences for our students across all our sites.  
These formative assessments are not subject to opt-out requirements as this information is not reported to any state database. More information is available at https://www.pvpusd.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=376328&type=d&pREC_ID=
Have a great week!
