Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Happy New Year to all Repetto families! It is my sincerest hope and desire that 2015 will bring you peace, good health and prosperity. It is hard to believe that we are already halfway through the school year! Teachers and students have been diligently working on skills and strategies that are in line with Common Core. Our first interim assessment is complete. As you know, the state requires that SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) testing must be taken online. Our district also requires that interim (benchmark) assessments be taken online. One very important skill your child should work on is computer keyboarding. Since online assessments have become the “wave of the future”, it would benefit your child to practice keyboarding skills at home. Please check out the various keyboarding links listed on our school website. The more practice your child gets, the less difficulty he/she will have with the online assessments, including SBAC.
