Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
students will be participating in the Smarter Balanced Assessments in
English/Language Arts and Mathematics. The Smarter Balanced
Assessments will determine your student(s) achievement level and
provide you will valuable information regarding how they are preforming.
These assessments present an individually tailored set of questions
to each student and can quickly identify which skills and concepts
students have mastered. For high school students, the
assessments provide an indicator of their predicted readiness
for career, college and life after high school.

. Both students and parents can explore the types of typical
questions from this attached link. You might find it
interesting to take one of the 30-question Practice Tests as a
parent, but you will have to ask yourself if you are "Smarter
than a Middle School Student." On the right side of the page is
a tile that reads "Training and Practice Tests" with a
picture of a bicycle with training wheels; log in as a guest and then
choose the appropriate test (ELA or Math) and the grade level you want.
benefit for high school students who perform at Achievement Levels 3
or 4 on the Smarter Balanced Assessments is that they will be able to
move directly into credit-bearing college-level courses (levels 100
and above) upon enrollment at any of the 34 community and technical
colleges, and any of the public baccalaureate institutions, and nine
independent colleges in Washington. This means that a student
will be able to bypass traditional placement tests that are typically
given when they enroll in college.

Mornings can be
really crazy! The alarm doesn't go off...the kids don't want to get
up...there's no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes...or
kids are just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can
of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like
your house, we have good news for you.
Breakfast is served
will energize your child's day and provide them with a healthy
start, helping to achieve success in school. The United States
Department of Agriculture lists several benefits of breakfast:
- Eating breakfast can help improve math,
reading, and standardized test scores.
- Children who eat breakfast are more
likely to behave better in school and get along with their
peers than those who do not.
- Breakfast helps children pay attention,
perform problem-solving tasks, and improves memory.
- Children who eat breakfast are likely to
have fewer absences and incidents of tardiness than those who
- Studies have shown that children who eat
breakfast on a regular basis are less likely to be overweight.
- School breakfast provides daily servings
of fruit, whole grain options, protein options, and milk for

is affordable, too. If you qualify for free and reduced-price
meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no
additional paperwork. In the traditional breakfast program students
who eat school breakfast report to the cafeteria before class and
eat their meal in the cafeteria.
We encourage your
student to eat breakfast to establish healthy eating habits and to
support student achievement at school.
finally arrived, and with it will come warmer weather. Your
middle school age student is maturing physically as well as
academically. And with that development, classrooms can begin
smelling a little strong with body odor. Students typically need
to take more frequent baths and showers and begin to use an
antiperspirant or deodorant to stay smelling fresh and clean as they
go through puberty. Let's show our Riverview Learning Center
faculty and staff how much we appreciate them by encouraging our
students to smell as good as they look!
spring we will see more bees, hornets and yellow jackets around the
Riverview Learning Center campus. There are a handful of
students who have severe allergies to these insect stings. If
your student notices a flying insect in a classroom or on campus,
please ask them to do the following:
- Do not swat at or bother the insect.
This could cause them to fly at and/or sting the person
bothering them or sting another student.
- Report seeing an insect to an adult if it is
in a classroom or school building.
- If your student has emergency medication for
an insect sting, please ask them to remind their teachers of
All 6th grade
students are required to receive a Tdap booster. This
vaccination is to protect against tetanus, diphtheria and
pertussis. There has been a recent rise in pertussis (whooping
cough) cases in King County, making this an important booster to
receive. If your child is 11 years old and it has been five
years or more since their last tetanus-containing vaccine, please
call to schedule this vaccination. If other members of your
family have not had this vaccination within the past five years, ask
your health care provider if they should also receive this

remember to send them in with your student, and they can drop them
off at the main office. Every little bit helps!
One of the goals during
this fourth year of the Riverview Learning Center is to set up
ways to accept and raise money for special projects, activities, and
other needs for both students and classroom materials. You
can help in these efforts by:
Asking your company if they
participate in any type of "match" money that can be
donated to schools. For example, Microsoft allows employees to
donate dollars to schools and they will match that donation.
Several other companies will do similar matches. Typically,
this information can be obtained through your payroll & benefits
department and requires you to fill out paperwork to make this
happen. Depending on the company, the school receives the
dollars on a quarterly of half-yearly basis.
Some companies will also
donate money to schools for hours of volunteer time documented by the
employee. Usually, the way this works is the employee
volunteers time in the school or on school-related activities, then
documents the time on a form provided by the company. In many
cases, the employer will match up time with dollars and donate it to
the school. Again, there is a process and paperwork on the
employee side, but what a great way to volunteer and give back to the

Bring in your Boxtops (or send
in with your student) to the main office, or to the classroom
teacher. Clipping the tops off of specially marked food
packages and household consumer projects with the logo is the first
step. We've been doing Boxtops in the past and want to increase
our efforts this year. Each box top redeemed is worth 10 cents
for the school. Tell your friends, neighbors, and relatives to
help us out as well. We will make sure they are collected,
organized, and sent into the company at the specific due dates.
The collective impact that the community can make can be big!

additional ways to bring in extra dollars through companies who work
with schools. By finding ways to make donations part of the
daily things we purchase, use, or spend time on, it is an easy way
for little things to add up. Lastly, if you have other ideas or
know of other ways where businesses contribute rewards or other
benefits back to schools, we need your ideas and help.
