PRINCIPAL'S Message                4-11-14    

Olive Families,

Welcome back from Spring Break!  From April 24 thru May 13, 3rd-5th grade students will be state testing.  It is very important that all students are well rested and on time to school.  They should eat a good breakfast and have plenty to eat during the day.  The testing process requires a lot of concentration and students need sleep and food.

All my best,
Elizabeth Sesma-Olinyk

 Practice Test State Testing
We are quickly approaching state testing, end of April, beginning of May for all our third through fifth grade students.  All K-5th grade families are invited to go on the CDE website and check out the questions our students will be facing.  The state tests are computer based.  Students will be taking them in the computer lab or in their classroom on Chrome books.  Please use this link to preview the test.

The Tour of Novato is Back!
The Tour of Novato has just kicked off!  We hope this year's event will be our most successful ever, but we need your help!  Now is the time to reactivate your account and start fundraising.  If you register before April 1st, the fee is discounted to $20 per participant/registrant for the Novato Classic, Family Ride and Downtown Walking Adventure; and $50 for the West Marin Metric Century.  Our school's goal is listed on the Tour of Novato website and every donation helps keep our schools, our students, and our community strong.   The Community Fair (formerly known as the FunFair) will feature the same family fun options - inflatables, food, community booths and games - with even more to do this year!  Keep an eye on the website and our Tour of Novato Facebook page for more information.
