Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
This week marks the beginning of the final trimester of the year. I hope students will finish the school year strong by putting forth their best effort every day.The SBA (Smarter Balanced Assessment) testing window is April 2nd through May 18th. Classroom teachers and intervention specialists have been preparing our students throughout the year academically as well as focusing on computer tools, keyboarding and test-taking skills. We believe that SBA is “high stakes” and we encourage students to practice and focus on doing their best as we prepare them to be college and career ready. Practice/sample test questions are available on the school website.
To assist staff members, parents and students in planning for the upcoming school year, District would like to advise you that the first day of school for students for 2018-2019 is Friday, August 10, 2018. For a complete list of major holidays and school schedule, please visit the district website at www.ausd.us. On the homepage, click on “Parent Resources” located on the top toolbar. Under the drop down menu, click on “Student Calendar” to access both student calendars for the current school year and the upcoming 2018-2019 school year
