    This week at Calvert

    Updates for 5/14-5/18

    Hello Calvert Families,

    It is hard to believe it is already the middle of May. Many of our third, fourth, and fifth grade students are taking their SBAC assessments, and the rest will start soon. Attendance is always important, but it is especially important during testing. Students do their best work when they test with their teacher and their classmates, rather than testing in a make-up session. So, please make every effort to get your child to school on time every day, and schedule any appointments for after school hours or in June. We want to provide the best opportunity for every student to do his or her best work.

    We have our final School Site Council/Governance Council Meeting of the 2017-2018 school year on Friday afternoon, May 18th, at 2:40 p.m. in the library. Everyone is welcome.

    At 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 18th, the fifth graders will be performing at the annual 5th Grade Variety Show. Please come and show your support for our talented fifth graders.

    Our fourth and fifth grade students participated all year in ballroom dance classes taught by Best Foot Forward. Two weeks ago, many students auditioned for the Best Foot Forward Ballroom Dance Competition which will take place on Saturday, May 19th, at El Camino Real Charter High School. Our dance instructor selected a group of talented dancers to represent Calvert at the competition. If you would like to attend the competition, tickets are available for purchase in the office. Calvert will compete with Group 2 starting at 2:30 p.m. Competitors should arrive by 1:30 p.m.

    I hope you all enjoy a wonderful week.

    Best regards,

    Amanda Evans, Principal
