Each school in San José Unified annually develops a Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA). This plan includes the academic goals the school will be working on during the year and shows how the school will be using the funds allocated to the site.
The SPSA is written with the help of the School Site Council, which then approves the final document and forwards it to the Board of Education for their approval.
We welcome volunteers who help our teachers and staff elevate opportunities for students. Please review the following processes.

B-6 Parents and Students:
Be sure to look through your student’s white envelope! This week there are several flyers and student work samples. Graded items include the Chapter 10 Social Studies test.
THANK YOU ALL for your work with Gold Rush today! The set up was brilliant, stations were beautifully set and organized, volunteers were wonderful, and even the weather cooperated. I know this was an exhausting day, and MANY of you did lot of prep work as well. BUT ... this was such an outstanding event for the students - they were engaged, learning, and enjoying themselves.
Science Projects - science experiments should be complete. The ONLY things done at home are the experiment itself, writing down of data, and taking pictures. All else will be done at school: typing up results, creating tables, charts, graphs, writing a summary and conclusion, and creating a display board. Students will present their projects in class beginning Friday May 25.
Tuesday is the Art Show and Open House! From 5:00-6:00pm, come to the Superdome and admire all of Graystone’s Great Artists’ Creations (every student has a piece displayed!). Open House will run from 6:00-7:00—- come visit the classroom so your student can show off her/his great work, both individual and group projects.
Our student teacher, Miss Betancourt, had her last official student-teaching day today. The students will get one more day with her though, as a substitute, next Friday May 25, so we are waiting to say our good-byes and thank you’s till then.
