CAASPP is the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress. All students in grades 3rd through 6th will take a computer based test in English Language Arts and Math. Science will be tested in 5th grade using a paper and pencil assessment. Each English Language Arts and Math test will have the following three components:
* Computer Adaptive Test - Students are tested using the computer to answer questions and/or respond with short answers
* Classroom Activity - Students are not tested but are given a prescribed lesson by the teacher to prepare for the following Performance Task
* Performance Task - Students are tested using the computer on a problem or a common theme and then given a small set of questions to answer
This year, families will receive a report of each student's overall scores. To see examples of the types of question that will be on the texts, go the the California Department of Education website at:
Dove Hill's Testing Window is May 4th through May 22nd.
As always, please be sure your child is rested and prepared. Students need to come to school every day and only stay home if ill. It is a challenge to make-up tests and replicate the classroom setting. Students need to make every effort to be present daily, which will help him or her to do their best work.
Thank you in advance for supporting your child during testing days!
As we begin to prepare for the start of a new school year, all Evergreen 6th grade students will participate in two mathematics readiness assessments this spring during the May 11th - May 22nd testing window. Both diagnostic assessments assess a broad range of skills and help us gauge potential mathematical success in middle school. The results of these assessments will be utilized in conjunction with results received from state assessments for placement in 7th grade mathematics. More importantly, besides a tool for mathematics placement, these diagnostic tests will also assist teachers to determine student's mathematical strengths and challenges and allow them to adjust instruction to increase student success.

Beginning February 10, 2015, Parents may pick up 2015 Kindergarten Registration Packets in the school office. If your child turns 5 on or before September 1st, 2015, it is time to register for kindergarten. Registration packets will be available in the school office February 10th, 2015. Completed registration packets will be accepted in the school office beginning March 2, 2015. (Office hours for Registration 9:00-3:00 M-F)
Please note that in addition to the registration packet, parents must have the following items:
* Proof of residence (Three pieces of documentation are required. Acceptable items include PG&E bill, San Jose Water Company bill, etc.)
* Original birth certificate or other legal document showing date of birth (i.e. passport, or baptismal certificate.)
* Immunization record (California schools enforce a "no shots, no school policy")
Parents of 6th Graders - you will need to provide documentation that your child had a Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot given on or after 7 years old. Our goal is to have ALL 6th grade students provide this documentation before the end of May. If you haven't done so already, check your child's immunization record or call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination. Once the shot is completed, bring in the immunization record to Dove Hill School so we can document that the requirement has been completed. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUMMER TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT. Your child will not get his/her class schedule the first day of school.
Stay home if you or your child is sick until at least 24 hours after there is no longer a fever or signs of a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medicine.) Keeping sick students home means that they keep their viruses to themselves rather then sharing them with others. Stay home even if taking antiviral medicines. Cover your mouth when you cough, and sneeze. Clean hands with soap and water or an alcohol based hand rub often and especially after coughing or sneezing.
Please remember that if you child is ill to notify the office of your child's absence by calling 270-4964
Dear Parents: Please take this survey about our school safety.
It is important for all of the students, parents and staff to feel safe at Dove Hill! Thank You!
Please keep your child's lunch account up to date. You may put money on to your child's account at any time. This is a safe, efficient way to safeguard your money (so students don't have to carry it around) It will also get them through the line faster than using cash. You can put money on your account online @www.myschoolbucks.com or by dropping off cash or checks to the school office. Please make checks payable to CNS and not the school. Lunch applications are still available in the office. If your child brings lunch, please assist the office and the classroom by having your child bring it to school in the morning. We really want to minimize the interruptions in the classroom that interrupt or take away student learning. Thank you!

Our Secure campus procedures have had overwhelming support. Parents want to feel that their child is protected and safe at school. Teachers have reported a calmer and smoother opening of their day and a sense of security in their rooms. We appreciate that the change was an adjustment for families but want you to know that the children have adjusted well and are safe. Our dismissal has had some challenges and we are working on making necessary improvements. Here are a few areas we could use your support.
* Be sure that whom ever picks up your child waits back from the gate so that all students may exit.
* Be sure to pull-forward and NOT STOP in the bus lane.
* If you have to speak to a teacher, please report to the office and the teacher will be notified.
