NAPLES BAYSIDE ACADEMY
A California Distinguished School 2011
April 1 to April 30, 2015
VISIT US AT:
APRIL 21 – MAY 29
Grade 3-5 testing will be April 21 through May 29. The SBAC testing will be taking place in our computer lab. Third grade will test first from April 21-29. Fourth will test second from May 4-12. Fifth grade will test last from May 13-22. There will be makeups ongoing and additional makeup days May 25-29. It is very important for your students to have plenty of rest and eat right. Please do your very best to have your children here every day during this time. Students perform much better when they take the tests with their peers, instead of on make-up days. All testing will be concluded each day before the lunch break. If you absolutely have to schedule an appointment, please do so late in the afternoon. You can also help your children by making sure that they arrive before the morning bell rings so they don’t walk into class late and miss any of the instructions or materials. Some students become over anxious during this testing window, please remind your children just to try their best and not to worry. They will be hearing this from their teachers as well. A majority of the tests will be untimed and students are encouraged to take their time and make sure they review their work. Thank you for your encouraging words to your children and kind support.

SPRING FUNDRAISER UPDATE
Congratulations to Mrs. Edelbrock's class for an 11th hour rally to win the class competition. They will be treated to an IN-N-OUT lunch and special movie viewing next week. The final numbers are still being tallied, but the spring fundraiser was a huge success! We are very close to our $60,000 goal! Thank you to all who attended to make this year's attendance reach record numbers! The event had delicious food, amazing auction items, and dancing fun!
This event would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of a huge group of people. Our committee kept growing and growing with more and more help as the event got closer. A big thank you to Carla and Ryan Borges for making the beautiful bid information sheets. Andrea Salisbury created the huge ship you saw as you entered the hallway, as well as the gorgeous Live Auction Posters at the event. Donation Collection Team was charged by Nicole Freese and Chris Witter. The amazing decorations at the event were led by Angelique Diliberto, Candy Ibarra and Tennille Rodriguez. The veteran spring fundraiser committee members of Trini Jones and Loretta Fiss helped in more ways than you can imagine. Check-out was faster than ever thanks to Trini, Ella Hall and Andrea Crompton. A big thank you to Heather Meyer for helping us plan at LBYC. Other help came from Becki Snellen, Carrie Fernandez, Tracy Zinberg, Laura Aronne, Kristin Pincherli, and Anne LeBlanc. A big thank you to Sunny Kohagura for her guidance throughout this process. And last, but definitely not least, thank you to Scott Meyer for being our MC and helping us raise nearly $15,000 from our live auction! If I forgot anyone, I truly apologize. This team truly rocked!
Thank you for making our Spring Fundraiser a Huge Success!

MRS. NELSON’S BOOK FAIR
Thanks to everyone that helped with the book fair! It takes a village but we were able to pick a lot of new book titles for the library. Thank you to the parents and kids who came by for their spring vacation reading!
DOGS, DOGS, AND MORE DOGS!
The signs posted on our gates clearly state that no dogs are allowed on campus. Please help spread the word and ask all our neighbors to reserve the grassy areas for our children. For the safety of our students, we kindly request that you leave your pets at home. In addition, some of our neighbors are walking their dogs before and after school or on weekends and allow the dogs to use the grass, as you well know. Although some families are picking up after their pets, many are not. Your assistance in keeping our school grounds safe and clean for all of our students is greatly appreciated.
Our next meeting of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will be on Monday, 4-27 at 8:15 in the auditorium. Our CERT team needs many volunteers because they will be updating and familiarizing themselves with the contents of the Emergency Bin. If you would like to help, please contact Ed Shackeroff at email@example.com.
