MSJE CAASPP Test Scores
Beginning with the 2013–14 school year, CAASPP became the new student assessment system in California, replacing the Standardized Testing and Reporting system (STAR).This May our students in grades 3-6 took the computer adaptive tests in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. Overall scores are reported within one of four levels: standard not met, standard nearly met, standard met, and standard exceeded. Majority of our students met or exceeded standards in both ELA and Math, way to go MSJE!!!!!
At the recent Habitat means Home poster contest, MSJE 3rd grader Hannah C. beat competing students from the Tricites public schools and came home with 1st place. The theme of the poster contest is a celebration of the diverse habitats and species found at Coyote Hills Regional Park. The judges were impressed by Hannah’s ability to convey her understanding of a habitat and species at Coyote Hills Regional Park not only through artistic interpretation but also through written responses to questions that ask why she selected the species and habitat that she did, what she learned, and why protecting this habitat and species is important. As part of her win, MSJE is awarded $500 to be used towards improving the habitat of all students. Congratulations Hannah!
At the recent Elementary Math League State Championships, MSJE battled 300 other students and came home with a fourth place team finish. The team consisted of Anish K., Abithia V., Arul V., and Ajay B. Placing in the top ten was Anish (1st place) and Abhitha (7th place).

Student safety is our number one concern. In an effort to ensure a safe environment for our students, ALL VISITORS MUST CHECK IN AT THE OFFICE, SIGN IN, AND WEAR A VISITOR’S BADGE WHILE ON CAMPUS. Please do not sign out ahead of time. This is for your safety. All staff is trained to question any adult they see on campus during school hours without a visitor’s badge. This is for the protection of your student. Please help us keep our children safe by following these guidelines.
