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.
In your student’s Friday envelope, you will find a smaller manilla envelope addressed to “the parents of ...” - this contains an end of they year note from me, your student’s report card, and latest reading level (Achieve3000) report.
Also, please look for and read our class booklet “The Future of B-6”. This week each student wrote a 3 paragraph essay, predicting what they would be doing at 18, 30, & 50. All the essays are included in the booklet - enjoy reading & may their dreams come true!
Your student’s last week was terrific - each stayed on task, was productive, engaged in collaborative projects, demonstrated our unique talents, and made the most out of their last days as a 4th grader. Thank you all for sharing them with me for 180 days. The last day of school is truly my least favorite day - I hate saying good-bye.
