Congratulations to our Kellogg Community in our recent Bulldogs Unleashed Jogathon efforts! Special thanks to Karie Ide, Nancy Marden, Ashley Switzer, and Gina Terlinden. At last week’s Flagpole Assembly 38 students either had their name drawn for prizes or were recognized for being the top earner in their classrooms. A total of $30,396 was raised by student and corporate sponsorships. Way to go, Bulldogs! These funds help support specialists (science, art, computer, and PE), provide bus eld trips, school garden support, band, technology and teacher grants to name a few of the great contributions that helps keep Kellogg the spectacular school that it is. Thank you for supporting all of our Kellogg students!
Third through sixth grade classes are preparing for the up- coming California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), California’s name for Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC). Different grade levels will be testing in our computer lab be- tween April 25 and May 17. Fifth graders will take the a Pilot NGSS Science Test. Students who normally take the CAPA, now the CAA, will also continue to do so within the above time line. Please view the testing schedule inside to view your child’s test dates. Please avoid scheduling any doctor’s appointments or trips during this testing period. Please help us by making sure that your child arrives to school on time and emotionally ready to take this state exam. We need to have our students well-rested and prepared to take this test each morning.
I hope to see you out at Open House on Thursday, April 27th from 6:00-8:00PM. Families will have the opportunity to visit classrooms, art show, and book fair. The book fair will be open during lunch and after school (except for Thursday) Monday through Thursday in the library. Public Schools Week is April 17-21 and a good time to make an appointment to visit class- rooms between 9:00 and 11:00.
Kindergarten Registration is now in progress. If you know a kindergartner (or preschooler) who is planning to attend Kellogg in the fall, but missed the information night or who has not registered yet, please encourage them to stop in the office. Any further questions can be directed to me via email or 805-691-1277. Respectfully,
— Kim Bruzzese
