Attention All Grade 3-8 Parents! Student CAASPP Score Reports will now be accessed electronically through the Parent Portal on our student information system. ● To access reports, sign in at powerschool.eesd.org/public . If parents have not yet created an account, a unique access ID and password will be sent with the child's report card. ● Student Score Reports are being made accessible to families as soon as student exams have been scored by the State. This means that some students may already have access to their 2019 test results in their Parent Portal while others may not. Tests are scored and released in batches and the process will be finalized over several weeks. The State does not notify us of each release. ● Parents should contact the Karen Wevers in the Instruction Department (email@example.com or 408-270-6827) if they are unable to access their child's report, have any additional questions or need technology assistance.

To promote school safety, Matsumoto had added Pedestrian Walking Flags and Holders. The flags are used at school intersections to help keep children safe as they walk to school. When a student holds a Pedestrian Crosswalk Flag as they use a crosswalk, they are making surrounding cars aware of their presence and giving them the confidence to safely walk to school. Please discuss the proper use of the pedestrian walking flags and holders with your children. Thank you!

May's ABC Book: In "Recess Queen", by Alexis O'Neill, Mean Jean, the "recess queen", rules the playground with an iron fist. No one dares cross her path for fear of being hit, punched, or kicked. One day, a new girl shows up on the playground and catches Mean Jean completely off guard. Katie Sue is not the least bit intimidated by Mean Jean. Katie Sue actually invites Jean to join in a jump rope game! In no time, Jean and Katie Sue become friends. As a caring adult, here are steps you can use to help youth in emotionally charged conflicts: 1) Empower students to use their skills as UPstanders to create a safe and caring climate on the school playground. 2) Practice using conflict resolution skills. 3) Use the ABC student toolbox of techniques practiced all year in our ABC Lessons. 4) Demonstrate a connection between student's online and face to face community.
