    Message from the Principal
    Dear Parents, 
    All across the state of California, Students in grades 3-8 and 11 took the Smarter Balanced Assessment, or SBA for short, in the Sprint of 2018. Parents should have received test scores in the mail. If you did not, please come to see Ms. Foster, Title 1 Coordinator. The results for Miles are:
    Math
    Grade 3 - 30% of students met or exceeded the standard. This is decline of 2%
    Grade 4 - 31% of the students met or exceeded the standard. This is a gain of 7%!
    Grade 5 - 18% of student met or exceeded the standard. This is a drop of 1%.
    English Language Arts
    Grade 3 - 36% of student met or exceeded the standard. This is a gain of 17%!
    Grade 4 - 34% of students met or exceeded the standard. Thus is a drop of 2%.
    Grade 5 - 37% of student met or exceeded the standard. This is a gain of 3%!
    When you think about the new learning standard, you see how high the learning expectations are. The teaching is changing to meet these more challenging expectations. Thus year the teachers will be focusing on improving mathematics instruction. To help you understand the work that your children are expected to do, these are several parent workshops for you in October. These workshops will provide you with tools to help your child continue his/her learning at home. Please take advantage of these opportunities.
    Sincerely,
    Cora L. Watkins
