Message from the Superintendent - May 1, 2018
Dear Rescue Families,
We are extremely proud of each and every one of our schools. We have some of the top test scores for the greater Sacramento area, we have top notch teachers, staffs, and administrators. We also provide wonderful opportunities in fine arts, STEM, project based learning, coding, robotics, maker space, AVID, Where Everyone Belongs (WEB at our middle schools), and a multitude of other things great for kids. In addition to that, our staffs work diligently to fully implement Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and the new social studies standards for our students so they are adequately prepared for high school and beyond. We appreciate our schools and our staffs. We see them as Difference Makers for our community and students. I love going into classrooms to witness firsthand the enthusiasm, energy, creativity, and passion. I appreciate seeing that enthusiasm and passion displayed not only in classrooms, but in offices, libraries, cafeteria, and out on the grounds and playground.
With that said, we have one school, Lakeview Elementary, who has earned the distinction of California Distinguished School. This is no easy feat with the new requirements, new accountability system, and new testing system. We will be announcing Lakeview’s honor to the Board at the May 8 Board meeting, but we wanted to share the news with our entire school community.
Thank you too, for helping us honor our teachers and classified staffs this month. We know you join us in our appreciation of our dedicated teachers and classified staffs. They work very hard to give our kids the very best, well-rounded educational opportunities possible!
Again, we hope to see you all at our Open House events this month! It is amazing to realize we are in our last month of the 2017-2018 school year already. Thank you for entrusting your children to us. We appreciate partnering with you in the education of your precious children.
