Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
It is my sincere pleasure to announce to the Repetto School Community that SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) results are in and that Repetto students showed growth in both English Language Arts and in Math.
SBAC assessments focus on core conceptual understanding and procedures. Last spring, SBAC was given to all students in grades 3rd through 8th. The results of the assessment were overwhelmingly positive. In English Language Arts, 68% of our students met or exceeded standard showing a growth of 6%. In Math, 59.3% of our students met or exceeded standard showing a growth of 7.8%. Repetto students exceeded District, County and State percentages for students meeting or exceeding standard in both English Language Arts and Math.
Students should be commended for working so hard and accomplishing so much. Kudos to teachers for preparing our students and for encouraging them to take responsibility for their own education with strategies that work. A special thank you to you, the parents, for your continued support. It’s has been a great start to a new school year!

Repetto PTA: We regret to inform you that Repetto PTA’s charter has been revoked by the California State PTA until further notice. There were issues with tax filings dating back to 2012 and until these issues are resolved and a new charter has been approved and instated, Repetto PTA cannot conduct any business. Some PTA sponsored events such as the college fair and book fair may be cancelled. However, most of our PTA-subsidized school activities such as field trips and Class of 2016 promotion activities will not be affected. Parent volunteers are working diligently to restore our PTA to normal operations and minimize impacts to programs and activities. We have met with representatives from both the Alhambra Council PTA and 1st District PTA and are confident that these issues can be rectified and our PTA charter can be restored as soon as fall of 2016. Thank you everyone for your patience.
Box Tops for Education - Don’t forget to keep collecting Box Tops for Education. Every Box Top you turn in to the office helps our PTA raise money.

Attendance Works: show that elementary students with good attendance read well by the end of third grade and middle school students with good attendance pass important courses. The benefits of good attendance continue throughout life: high school students stay on track to graduate, college students earn a degree, and adults have successful jobs. For more information, visit www.attendanceworks.org or speak with Olga Velazquez, Gateway Advisor, in the school office.
Responsible for Safely Getting Your Child to School: Parents need to be extra careful driving around a school zone and to obey fundamental traffic laws. MPPD proactively enforces traffic laws around the school. We encourage parents to use the valet drop off lane. Do NOT stop alongside other cars or double park. Try to drop off on the same side of the street as the school (or remind your child to use the crosswalk). Never have your child dodge traffic or cross between parked cars. Your cooperation will ensure everyone’s safety.
