On Thursday, April 21, a bike was stolen between 3:00 and 4:00 out of the bike cage at LeyVa. The bike was only a few months old, is green and gray, and is this student's mode of transportation to and from school each day. We encourage our students to walk and ride their bikes to school, and then this happens. Obviously, stealing is wrong and against the law, but it is also extremely disappointing that someone would feel it is okay to do this. This young man was staying after school for track and field practice, representing our school as an athlete. We are proud of him for his hard work, and we want to do all we can to help get his bike back.
If you were at school late last Thursday -- perhaps working on projects or speaking with a teacher -- and you remember seeing people around 3:30-4:00 by the bike racks, please come see Mr. Sherman. If you know who stole the bike and/or where we can find it, also come see Mr. Sherman. We need to help get this young man's bike back to him. It's up to all of us to watch out for each other and to show everyone that LeyVa students always do what is right.
You can always email me with information at firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's find this bike!
CAASPP State Testing Ends May 3rd
We are in the process of finishing up the CAASPP testing for the year. May 3rd is the last day of testing, though we will be doing make-up testing until all students area tested. This data will help us tremendously as we move forward, and we have high expectations that our students did their best. Results will come in to us over the summer -- perhaps sooner -- and you should receive results in the mail sooner this year than last year. Though we can't give you a specific date, as the process becomes smoother, the turnaround time for test scores will markedly decrease.
Our Science classes continue to take paper/pencil tests as the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have not been included yet in the online testing. As we move forward, however, our teachers will continue to move from the current standards into NGSS focused instruction. There is a different order of when concepts are introduced, what is covered, and how the students are assessed. To become more familiar with the NGSS, visit the following websites which will help familiarize you with the change:

Witness a fight? Did you record it? Do not post it!
Taking video of a fight between students is wrong. If such a video is
passed along to you, bring it to the attention of the school administration
or law enforcement as it will help us keep our campus and community
safe. Posting this video, passing it along to others, or even having it on
your phone is a violation of school policy and can quickly become a law
Do you hear that a fight is going to happen? Let an administrator or
teacher know right away if you hear of a fight being arranged. That way,
we can keep all students safe. The adults can mediate any problems
before they result in kids getting hurt.
Remember, fights are often encouraged by other students. Don't let
anyone convince you to fight. It's dangerous and can cost you your
placement at our school. It's just not worth it!
Contact Mr. Sherman anytime!

Register for the Parent Portal Here!!
In an effort to strengthen our communication with parents in emergency and non-emergency situations, our school is transitioning to an on-line, secure, “Parent Portal” system.
First, a parent/guardian will need to create an account. Second, a parent/guardian will have the ability to view information regarding their student as well as update emergency contacts and provide communication contact preferences.
