No School on Columbus Day-October 12, 2015

No school on Monday October 12th due to the Columbus Day celebration.

ASE Phoenix -Basketball Team Ready to Play!

Fall Break- Thursday & Friday

Dear Parents,

There will be no school on Thursday and Friday( October 8-9) due to the fall break. Wednesday is a full day and students will be dismissed at 2:45 pm. Please make your arrangments accordingly.

Countdown to PARCC Test Reports

Typically, families receive their student’s results from New Mexico’s annual assessment in the summer or early fall. Because this was the first time students took the PARCC, reports will be available once test data is analyzed and student achievement levels are established. Score reports for high school students will be available in November 2015, and score reports for middle and elementary school students will be available in December 2015.

It’s important to remember that if your child doesn’t fulfill graduation requirements with PARCC the first time he or she takes it, there are retest opportunities. In addition, after your child has exhausted the retest opportunities, there are other avenues for graduation through the alternative demonstrations of competency as determined by your school district.

Each student will receive one score report for ELA and one for math. Score reports include many important sections. The first section is the Student Performance Overview, which provides a student’s overall score and performance level.

ASE uses Second Step Character Education Curriculum

Albuquerque School of Excellence has been using Second Step curriculum for Character Education in grades 4th thru 8th. The Second Step Suite is a developmental and sequential curriculum designed to promote school and life success and to prevent problem behaviors. Skills are reviewed and expanded on each year, gradually becoming more complex as students get older. The research-based, comprehensive Second Step program teaches important life skills in age-appropriate ways. Students appreciate the respectful way in which lessons are presented. The engaging materials, such as video vignettes and take-home materials, encourage discussion, thought, and open communication between teachers and families.

Eureka Math- New Math Curriculum

Albuquerque School of Excellence has started using a new math curriculum which 100% is aligned with Common Core State Standards for grades 1-12. Eureka Math connects math to the real world in ways that take the fear out of math and build student confidence—while helping students achieve true understanding lesson by lesson and year after year.

Eureka Math offers a comprehensive suite of curriculum, in-depth professional development, texts, tools, and support materials that work together to provide teachers, parents, and students with a cohesive approach to the ultimate goal: students who are not merely literate, but fluent, in mathematics.

Core Knowledge Language Arts Curriculum

Albuquerque School of Excellence uses Core Knowledge Language Art Curriculum in grades 1-5. Core Knowledge’s instructional materials are designed to ensure that all students acquire the broad knowledge and skills needed to become responsible, productive citizens. While much of the education arena focuses on all students becoming college and career ready, Core Knowledge focuses on college, career, and citizenship. In the 21st century, being college and career ready means being ready to compete with people from around the world. It requires expertise in one’s chosen field—and the strong, broad foundation Core Knowledge provides in the early grades enables students to figure out which subjects they want to delve into in high school and beyond. Being citizenship ready means being able to communicate with people around the world. Citizenship requires the ability to speak with and listen to people all across the United States, to understand the perspectives of people around the world, to read the local paper or the New York Times, to write out one’s platform and run for office. By basing its materials on core content and core values, Core Knowledge puts students on the path to effectively competing and communicating.
