CAASPP Testing 2017

Each spring, students in IUSD participate in CAASPP assessments to provide information about their skills in English, mathematics, and science. Given online, the tests are computer-adaptive, allowing for more precise measurement of individual skills.

Based on your student's grade, they may take one or more of the following tests this year: Smarter Balanced Assessments in English and Math, Calforinia Science Test pilot, and the California Alternate Assessments. South Lake will be completing CAASPP testing for ELA and Math from May 8th – May 19th. We will have Late Start on Wednesdays NOT Tuesdays for both weeks.

Assessment results should always be interpreted as one of multiple measures of a student's skills. If you have any questions regarding your child's participation, please contact Mr. Kette. Click here to view the complete letter sent to parents and guardians.

Irvine Junior Games

Sunday, May 7th was the 30th Annual Irvine Junior Games Track and Field event. South Lake had 70 students signed up to represent our school, persevering the rainy weather, and taking home 29 medals in all. We ended up with 12 gold, 6 silver, and 11 bronze medals! There were several events where the top 3 medalists were all Sharks. Our athletes competed extremely hard and we are extremely proud of them! Thanks to Coach Doan and Coach Hagstrom for their unwavering support of our students. GO SHARKS!
