A Message from the Superintendent

Parents often ask me: “When will I find out the results of my child’s tests?”

Each year our teachers administer several assessments to determine student growth and inform their classroom teaching practice. These assessments—tests, quizzes, class projects, and the like—provide multiple ways to measure student progress towards learning the important concepts they need for success in school and in the community at-large.

Our assessment cycle includes dates we report results throughout the year. Also, our teachers are available to discuss student progress with the parents.

Assessment Reporting Schedule
iReady Testing Results

  • October at Parent-Teacher Conferences
  • Mid-November via student delivery
  • Early March via student delivery

Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Distribution Cycle

  • Tentatively August/September 2016 via U.S. mail

Walking is a fun and healthy way to spend time with your child.

In Campbell Union School District, we encourage parents and students to walk or bike to school every Wednesday. For those who live too far, try parking farther away from the school and walking the last block or two.

Since children learn by doing, YOU are your child’s most important role model for learning to walk safely. As you walk, please:

  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT for moving cars, and cross when clear.
  • Time yourself. Practice this weekend to find out how much time to allow.
  • Check the weather and dress appropriately (boots, rain coat, umbrella, etc.).

As you walk, you can talk with your child about what you’re doing and explain why.

Looking for a good book to read? Check out the 85 new titles in the RHMS library! Not only do we have more books to read, we’ve extended our Media Center hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays. The Media Center is open ½ hour both before and after school T-W-Th. This includes students having access to computers. Whether your child wants to research a subject via Internet or book, for schoolwork or enrichment, the RHMS library is there to assist them. And if you’re interested in helping out in the library, as always contact our office. We’re trying to weed out some of our “over-loved” books in order to accommodate books the students have requested we keep on the shelves.

Have an idea for a lunch club or after school club? If you are interested in supporting (that means leading) a club after school or during lunch, just let us know. We’ll put your ideas out to staff and help find a teacher sponsor. We have some funds set aside for clubs and would love to see more high interest clubs happening at school.

Last but not least, a big THANK YOU to all our parents and students for helping to keep our campus clean. Our custodian, Mr. Greg reports that our campus has recently been the best ever! Thank you to students for picking up their trash at lunch and break, and thank you to parents for reminding them and teaching good manners.

Have a great weekend,
Cynthia Dodd
Principal, RHMS
