Important Testing Dates
California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) will take place May 6-10 for all students in grades 3-6. Please mark your calendars for these important dates. It is vital that our students get a good night’s rest and a nutritious breakfast to do their very best.
FSD Kindergarten Registration

Grade Level Spotlight
1st Grade- First grade has begun their study of shadows, the sun and the moon. The students used flashlights to represent the sun and tried to change the shadow of a stationary object. They had fun tracing their shadow and observing how it changed throughout the day. Narrative Writing will be the focus for the rest of the school year during Writer's Workshop. We are working on Data Collection and time to the hour and half hour in math.
6th Grade- 6th graders had a fantastic time at Science Camp, and an incredibly busy weekend at the FSD Fest, completing CoDrone and PowerUp challenges and presenting their passion projects. Hermosa will be having its own Hermosa Fest, with passion projects on display for everyone to see!
Attendance is so incredibly vital to a student’s academic success! We strive to have all our students in class every weekday on time. Every day at Hermosa counts! Teachers take roll when students line-up in the morning. Please help your student to be on time by having him/her in line before 8:00 AM. We are striving for 98% attendance or better.
Pick-up & Drop-off Safety
Please arrive early to avoid traffic and parking congestion. Please be kind and courteous to our neighbors and one another during drop-off and pick-up. Please do not block driveways or fire hydrants nor park in undesignated areas (ie. loading zone & bus lane). Please help us to remind students that they must wait on school campus to be picked-up. For student safety and supervision, students are not allowed to wait at the park. Thank you!
Please contact the front office if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces tomorrow morning at 8 AM. Have a HAWKtastic evening!
