Each spring, WPUSD and LCES participate in state assessments that help us understand the effectiveness of our instruction and give you feedback on your child's progress in math, language arts, science and/or physical education.
We give the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) to students in grades 3-5, the new California Next Generation Science Standards assessment (CAST) to 5th graders, and our 5th graders also take a physical fitness assessment. Our testing window opens on Monday, April 23 and we hope to have all students assessed by Friday, 5/11. Most students will take their assessments the weeks of April 30 and May 7.
A letter describing the assessments was sent home recently, and you can find a copy of the letter here. If you have any questions about the specific dates your child is taking his/her assessments, please reach out to his/her teacher.
We get more feedback about before/after school pick up than almost anything else on campus! Anytime you have about 600 people coming and going from one place in a short window of time, things are bound to be congested.
Please remember that we provide supervision from 7:50-8:10 before school and 2:40-3 pm (1:40-2 pm on Mondays) after school. The parking area is least busy from 7:50-8 am and 2:50-3 pm/1:50-2 pm.
We need everyone to do their part to ensure that parking is as minimally stressful as possible. Our team's #1 goal is your student's safety. We ask children to wait behind the blue dots while they wait for a ride to ensure their safety, and we ask that you only pick up in designated areas so children aren't running between cars, cars aren't blocked into parking spots, and traffic doesn't get backed up as badly.
Hello Future Colt Families! Kindergarten registration is quickly approaching. Information about the registration process can be found on our website under the "About Us" tab and then the "Kindergarten Registration" section. Alternatively, please click here. We are updating our site regularly with updated information, so check back often!
Welcome back to school, Colts! We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing vacation, whether you spent it at home or afar. T. S. Eliot said "every moment is a fresh beginning." As we start the new year, keep this quote in mind. We all make mistakes, but it's what we do next that defines our character and often our consequences.
The Colt Way is the best way - and we encourage you to make choice every minute that reflect the expectations of our students and team. We all strive to be safe, respectful, responsible and problem solvers! We've got this, Colts!
