PRINCIPAL'S
HOLIDAY MESSAGE
 

I would like to wish all our Oliveira Eagle staff and families a very happy and safe holiday season. Oliveira Elementary will be closed for the winter break from Saturday, December 20, 2014- Sunday, January 4, 2015. The front office will reopen at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, January 5, 2015.

During the 1st reporting period our students engaged in many exciting learning experiences.  Since California adopted the Common Core State Standards, rigor and expectations have increased.  In Mathematics, the focus is on mastery and deep understanding of skills and concepts.  Students are expected to solve challenging word problems and explain their answer. While in Language Arts students are learning how to closely read text and be able to dig deep to find supporting evidence.  Students write opinions and conduct research.  These are just a few of the ways that your children are learning the Common Core State Standards and preparing for the SBAC, the new standardized test to measure how well students achieve the standards.  The SBAC Test will replace the STAR Test.

Sort your lunch waste at your table: Separate landfill trash, recycling, and compost.
Stand in line: Wait your turn to dispose of your lunch waste in the proper marked bins.
Stash your lunch waste in the proper bin: Put your lunch waste in its place!
Stack your tray or unopened items: Place your tray or unopened items on the cart neatly.

  • Fremont Unified School District Adopts New Math Programs

    On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight.  Numerous math programs were evaluated by the Fremont USD 2014 Math Adoption Committee.  Over 60 teachers and administrators worked collaboratively, over a series of meetings spanning two months, to evaluate potential texts in the areas of:  assessment, alignment to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the digital component, supports for English learners, students with disabilities and instruction in higher mathematics. Community input was also solicited.  Based on the findings from the evaluation, the programs that best fit the needs for the students of Fremont Unified School District are:

    ·        Math Expressions ((2105) by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for grades K-5, and

    ·        Springboard Math (2014) by the College Board for grades 6-8

    All teachers will receive professional development in the summer to help prepare them for the new adoption.  All student texts are consumable which will result in a lighter load in backpacks.  Families will receive digital access codes to the student online component in the fall.  

    Algebra 1 is under review and the final recommendation will be presented to the Board of Education in July.
