What is Smarter Balanced?
In the 2014-15 school year, Oregon joined twelve other states to use the Smarter Balanced Assessment tests for their mandatory state assessments. These standardized tests assess how well students are mastering content in key subject areas aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Students in grades 3-8 and 11 take the Smarter Balanced English language arts (ELA) and math tests. The Smarter Balanced English language arts assessment measures how well students have mastered English language arts skills including reading, writing, and critical thinking. The Smarter Balanced mathematics assessment measures how well students have mastered math skills and concepts. Smarter Balanced Assessments are taken in the Spring.The Smarter Balanced Assessments are administered online for greater accuracy in scoring and greater range in the types of questions and responses that can be asked and measured.
What if I don’t want my child to participate in Smarter Balanced?
Parents who wish to opt their student(s) out of Smarter Balanced testing should complete the opt-out form below and return to the school.

Trimester 1 report cards are coming home with students on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. We usually deliver report cards during conference time, but due to early goal setting conference times this year report cards are being sent home with students. If you have any questions about the grades, please contact your child’s teacher. We look forward to reporting on specific progress towards the goals set in October during spring conferences. Thank you.
We recently installed a “Makers Lab” in our library area at CPE. This area will promote student engagement, encourage collaboration, allow creativity and develop a sense of purpose. There is a 3D printer, hand tools, bicycle repair station, video production equipment, sewing machine, Lego robotics and a drone. Over the course of the next few months, students and staff will begin utilizing this space with kids. If you have special skills or knowledge that might benefit students in our makers space, please contact Mr. Davenport (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are looking for adult leaders, craftsmen and experts that can help us get kids excited about their future education and world they will be contributing to.
**We are looking for donations of new bicycle tubes (size 20, 24, & 26 inch) and patch kits. Due to strong interest, students have been learning how to repair their own tubes/tires. Some are bringing their bikes from home asking for help with repair. This is a great opportunity to develop mechanical skills and give students a chance to problem solve with their peers. Please consider donating supplies for this activity.
Yesterday at CPE, we had a Lock Down Drill. A “ Lock Down,” which I know sounds very ominous, is simply when students and their teachers are inside their classrooms with their doors locked. This is a safety procedure that is required of all schools and many other public facilities to ensure that all students and staff are safely inside the building during any kind of emergency that may happen around the campus or in the community. This is a drill that we have every year to practice these procedures, along with monthly fire drills, and earthquake drills, as part of our school safety plan. Students have practiced procedures with their teachers before the actual drill to ensure that they will not be afraid or anxious. We want students to be confident in case of a real emergency.
