Congratulations to the Boys Varsity Baseball Team

2014 EHS basebal.png

The Encinal Jets Boys Varsity Baseball team finished 2nd overall in the 23rd Annual Willie Stargell Memorial Easter Classic.  Encinal sponsors the annual baseball competition, which draws high school teams from all over the Bay Area to compete in Alameda. The tournament was founded 23 years ago in recognition of legendary Encinal baseball alumnus, Willie Stargell (Pittsburgh Pirates, MLB Hall of Famer). This year’s teams included: Acalanes, Alameda, Antioch, Dublin, Encinal, Dougherty Valley, Heritage and Skyline. The tournament was plagued by inclement weather, but all the teams played valiantly through intermittent rain showers and postponements. It was the first time in 13 years that the Encinal team made it to the final championship game, where they lost narrowly to Heritage, with a final score of 1-3. Alameda High played in the consolation final, coming in 4th overall.
The Encinal Jets would like to thank all the parents and spectators who supported them, as well as all the students and teachers who contributed and helped during the tournament.  

The team which is coached by Jim Saunders has a League record of 5-1.  Good job Jets!

Testing Information

 

During the Spring of 2014 along with thousands of schools across California, we are participating in a field test of a modern assessment designed to help shape teaching and learning in the classroom.  Known as the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), these computer-based tests will replace the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program in English Language Arts and Mathematics.

This year we will still have STAR science tests for grades 5, 8 and 10.  Grade 11 students will take STAR tests in English Language Arts and/or Math as a requirement to participate in the Early Assessment Program (EAP).  The California Alternative Performance Test (CAPA) will be administered to students who qualify for this assessment.

The California Education Code Section 60615 states that parents/guardians can submit a written request to the principal of their student’s school if they do not wish to have their student take any or all tests.  If a parent or guardian submits an exemption request after testing has begun, any test(s) completed before the request is submitted will be scored and the results reported to the parent or guardian and included in the pupil’s records.  AUSD teachers and school support students to do well on the tests and help them learn test-taking skills that will enable them to be successful throughout their school career and beyond.  We encourage parents to contact their child’s teacher or principal with any concerns they may have about the test before they request that their student be excluded from taking the test(s).

How is our school doing?

Please give us your feedback! We are conducting a school climate survey developed by WestEd and the state Department of Education. The survey, which is entirely confidential, will help us identify ways to improve the quality and character of the environment in which our children learn, play, develop, and socialize on a daily basis.

Parent and guardian input is crucial to the usefulness of this survey – we truly need to hear from you! The survey takes 15 to 30 minutes to complete and is a wonderful opportunity for you to give feedback on topics including physical and emotional safety, learning supports, and school connectedness.

You can complete the survey here (link to parent survey) between March 17 and April 17.  Please do it sooner, rather than later, so you don’t forget!  For questions, please contact cmedina@alameda,k12.ca.us.  For more information, about the survey, go to http://csps.wested.org/.
