Now Accepting Volunteer Forms for the 2013-2014 School Year
In order to volunteer at school or chaperone field trips, every parent must submit a volunteer form each year. We are now accepting volunteer forms for next school year. If you turn in your form now, it will be submitted for Board approval during the summer, and all approved volunteers will be able to start volunteering at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year. Board approval can be up to a 3-month process, so we encourage everyone to submit their volunteer forms for 2013-2014 now! Forms are available here on the website (Resource section on the right), or in the office, and should be submitted to the front office by the end of May.
Mesquite Trails Named a CBEE Honor Roll School!
MESQUITE TRAILS ELEMENTARY in Hesperia Unified School District recognized by california business community for high student academic achievement and closing achievement gaps.
Mesquite Trails Elementary has been selected by California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) as one of 2,108 public schools in California to receive the title of 2012 Honor Roll school. Three schools in HUSD received this distinction, including Parent Choice School Krystal School of Science, Math, and Technology, and Charter School LaVerne Preparatory Academy. Mesquite Trails was the only neighborhood school in HUSD to be honored with this distinction.
Schools receiving this distinction from the California business community have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For high schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.
“We have schools throughout the state that are getting it right for all students and this should not be a secret,” said Greg Jones, CBEE Chairman and past member of the California State Board of Education. “To ensure more of our schools succeed, we must change the conversation from being about fixing failing schools to one that focuses on replicating the success of schools like those on the Honor Roll.”
Over time, CBEE has identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools and districts. These include high expectations for all students; ongoing collaboration among teachers to improve practice; targeted use of data to pinpoint challenges and monitor progress; continual intervention for struggling students; and mastery of content knowledge and pedagogical practices.
“Honor Roll schools are overcoming challenges and obstacles every day for all students and are especially succeeding with kids who have been historically underserved. Our goal is to highlight their results, and provide a voice to these outstanding educators so that their success can be emulated in other places, “ said Jim Lanich, CBEE president.
The Honor Roll list grew from 261 schools in 2005 to the current 2,108 for 2012. A full list of the Honor Roll schools can be found at: www.cbee.org
The annual Honor Roll award is made possible with support from numerous businesses and organizations including State Farm, Macy’s, Edison International, Wells Fargo, Southern California Auto Club, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the California Business Roundtable, and several private foundations. Chevron Corporation provided specific support in the creation of the STEM Honor Roll.
