GATE TESTING

October is the month to begin the process for GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) testing for 3rd – 6th grade students. Teachers are looking at the students’ behaviors and working to determine if they are able to see evidence of gifted characteristics with any of the students in their classroom. For a list of these GATE characteristics, please go the http://web.nmusd.us and then click on Programs and scroll to GATE.

 ALL 3rd graders are eligible for GATE testing if the parents give permission.  For a 4th – 6th grader to qualify for testing, the student must first be recommended by their teacher or their parent. See your child’s teacher about requesting testing.  Keep in mind however, that to proceed with testing, the student must meet the following guidelines:

  • If tested prior to this year in NMUSD, they must have a score that is at least in the 80%     

  • A student cannot take the test a 3rd time

  • If tested, the student will take the same test as prior year

     

Chromebook Program

Adams 5th and 6th grade students will participate in a 1:1 Chromebook
program for the 2015-16 school year. This means every student will use a
Chromebook computer in the classroom and at home. Google Apps for
Education and numerous other web applications will be used to provide
students with opportunities to demonstrate their learning while using
state-of-the-art technology tools. The Chromebook program at Adams is
another reason why Adams Elementary is a wonderful place for students to
learn!

 

ADAMS ELEMENTARY- A Safe Place to Learn

Student safety is the highest priority for Adams Elementary School. Aside from keeping students safe in a clean, organized, and secure environment, Adams is one of two pilot schools in N-MUSD to begin the OLWEUS Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP). OBPP is a school wide approach to preventing and responding to bullying. Through weekly classroom lessons in all grades, kindergarten through sixth, students learn how to prevent bullying first and respond if they witness bullying behavior. OBPP is research-based and addresses both direct and indirect forms of bullying.

Adams has adopted the following Anti-Bullying Rules:

  1. We will not bully others.
  2. We will try to help students who are bullied.
  3. We will try to include students who are left out.
  4. If we know somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.

Dear NMUSD Parent, Guardian, or Community Member:

Starting in the 2013-2014 school year, the state of California created a new model for school district funding and accountability.  As a result, each district develops an annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  Each school district must engage parents, educators, employees and the community to establish these plans.  The plan describes the school district’s overall vision for students, annual goals and specific actions the district will take to achieve the vision and goals.  The LCAPs must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plans will also demonstrate how the district’s budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes.
 

We would like to invite you to provide your feedback on the 2015-2016 LCAP Actions and Services through a short online survey. 

You may also review all of the district’s LCAP documents on our dedicated webpage at http://web.nmusd.us/lcap
 

If you have questions or would like to provide additional input, please send an email to lcap@nmusd.us

Thank you.

Estimado padre, tutor, o miembro de la Comunidad de NMUSD:

 

A partir del año escolar 2013-2014, el estado de California ha creado un nuevo modelo de financiación de distrito escolar y la rendición de cuentas. Como resultado, cada distrito desarrolla un Plan de Rendición de Cuentas y Control Local (LCAP por sus siglas en ingles). Cada distrito escolar debe involucrar a los padres, educadores, empleados y la comunidad para establecer estos planes. El plan describe la visión general del distrito escolar para los estudiantes, las metas anuales y las acciones específicas del distrito tomará para alcanzar la visión y los objetivos. El LCAP debe centrarse en ocho áreas identificadas como prioridades del estado. Los planes también mostrarán la manera como se usará el presupuesto del distrito para ayudar a lograr las metas y cada año se evaluará si las estrategias del plan han mejorado los resultados

 

Nos gustaría invitarlos a que aporten sus comentarios sobre las acciones 2015-2016 LCAP y servicios a través de una breve encuesta en línea.

También puede revisar todos los documentos LCAP del distrito en nuestra página de internet, http://web.nmusd.us/lcap

Si tiene alguna pregunta o desea proporcionar información adicional, envíe un correo electrónico a lcap@nmusd.us.

Gracias.

Dual language programs are the most impressive forms of education being offered in the United States, and there is a significant increase in demand for these programs throughout the country.  

 

Summary of research:

 

  • Native English speakers often meet or exceed the performance of their peers participating in a monolingual program, with the added benefit of being bilingual.
  • Students participating in dual language programs develop multicultural competencies along with social skills.
  • Dual language programs are the most effective in closing the achievement gap.
  • Test results show that most dual language schools outperform their other demographically similar schools, the state and local school district.
  • Cognitive benefits, including delayed onset of Alzheimer’s for bilingual children. Their brains are flexible and require increased levels of concentration not typical of a monolingual brain.
