Wildcat Families —
Here at Crimson View things are getting busy! Not only is there much going on — but we’ve also got a lot of things coming up. Hopefully I’ll share the critical information and answer any questions you may have with this blog post, but please ask if you have questions or need some additional clarification!
- Parent Input for 2021-22 School Year Class Placement – I will be accepting parent input for class placements thru April 23. As a school we always give careful consideration to the creation of class lists. As a partner in your child’s education we appreciate your insight as to what will help your child the very most. The parent input form can be found on our school website and will be available thru April 23. (https://cves.washk12.org/)
- Dixie Power Kite Festival – the annual Dixie Power Kite Festival is THIS Saturday, April 17 @ DSU Encampment Mall from 10am to 7pm. Our school gets an extra boost of $$ for literacy materials based on the number of reading calendars turned in at the Kite Festival. Please make time this weekend to drop by DSU campus and your child will receive a kite or a book for turning in their reading calendar and you can have a blast as a family with all the fun activities!
- End of Year Testing – As the year winds down our students will participate in the annual RISE summative assessments in grades 3-5. In addition, all our students will participate in the End of Year Acadience Benchmark assessment. Our teachers and staff have worked extremely hard to prepare our students to be successful and I view these assessments as an opportunity for our students to celebrate their learning and to document their academic growth over time. Here are a few pointers to help your child do their very best! Pay attention to the testing schedule shared by your child’s teacher. Help your child get a good nights rest and have them eat a healthy breakfast the morning of each test. Encourage them to try their very best while taking the test. And most important, take them out for ice cream to celebrate when they are finished!
