Message from the PrincipalPES Families,
We are beginning Smarter Balanced State testing and want to make sure our kids are well rested and prepared. Please encourage your student to take their time and do their best. Parents have the right to opt their child out of state summative tests. Although Oregon schools risk losing $344 million in federal funds if our participation drops too low. Parents can learn more about House Bill 2655 by visiting this link" http://tinyurl.com/OR-HB2655. Opt out forms can be found on the PES website.
We have about 10 weeks of school left. This is a time of year when we see students make tremendous academic growth. Please support your child by reading with them each night and checking in on how school is going for them. Creating positive habits now will help them on their journey to College! Thank you again for your support and the opportunity to educate your child.
Yours for kids, Jeff Carpenter
