The Clear Lake Jumping Cougars are ready to begin another year. If you are in the 1st-5th grade, you can join us for fitness and fun on Friday mornings. The first day will be Friday, October 20th, in the Clear Lake Gym, from 8:30-9:00 am. There is a $5 fee per student for the year. We also will have jump ropes for sale for an additional $3 if students would like to have their own. We are always in need of volunteers. If you are interested in helping, please make sure to indicate that on the permission slip coming home soon. This program could not be successful without volunteers!

Every year, students in grade 3rd through 8th and grade 11th are tested in math and English language arts.  Test time is rapidly approaching.  The state has a new test this year to measure students' knowledge of state standards in these subjects.  It's called the Smarter Balanced test and it replaces the OAKS Test. 

Attached you will find important information that can help your student prepare and provide parents with the information and tools they need to help make this transition as smooth as possible.
Make sure you come back to this post for more tips and attachments!

Below is a Classroom Testing Schedule for 3rd-5th Grade

Elementary schools now use Proficiency Grading

posted Nov 18, 2014, 9:19 AM by Clear Lake   [ updated Sep 18, 2017, 2:24 PM by Salem Keizer ]

Parent-teacher conferences are just around the corner (all students Nov 24, 25; kindergarten Nov. 20, 21), and parents of elementary school students will notice some changes to grading practices this year.

Salem-Keizer’s elementary schools have been transitioning to proficiency-based grading over the last two years. The transition is now complete and all elementary schools report students’ academic grades on a proficiency scale of 1 to 4.

For more information follow the link below.  There is a short video and flyer for parents at this page.

Parents, we want your children to be safe.  Please do not send them to school before 9:00 am. If your child is a breakfast eater, he or she may enter the breakfast room through the south door (in front of the school building) at 8:50 am; otherwise, your student should not be on campus until after 9:00 when our doors officially open and supervision is available.
      IN THE AFTERNOON:  After school, your child should be picked up in the
      student loading area located in front of the school (south side).  
      We have supervision in front where parents may remain in their car.  
      Please drive all the way forward, just past the flagpole.  This allows 
      several cars to wait behind you and expedites the student pick up process.
      IN THE BUS AREA: Some children are walking between busses and cars
      in order to get to their waiting parent.  Unless your student is riding the bus,
      he or she should be picked up at the south side (the front) of the building.
      Help us help your child understand that he or she must wait for you in          
      front where supervisors can assist with student crossings!
Unless the device is provided by the school for learning purposes, students are not allowed to bring any electronic devices to school such as toys, games and cell phones.  We have had instances where such devices have become lost or have created disruptions and distractions to the learning environment. 
If your child must bring a cell phone to school, please have him/her drop it off in the office for safekeeping until the end of the day.  You may contact the school at (503) 399-3138  if you wish to send a message to your child.  Should a student be caught with a device in his/her possession, it shall be taken away until arrangements can be made for you to pick it up.
