Forks Elementary presents Common Core

Forks Elementary School will be hosting the second, in a series of Parent Information Nights from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 24. The evening will begin with dessert and music performances from the third- and fifth-grade classes.  The topic for the evening is the new Smarter Balanced State Assessment and new Common Core State standards. Both of these additions are a result of President Obama’s “Race to the Top” program and most likely will impact students for the next 10 years, including graduation. Forks Elementary school principal, Rob Shadle, invites all of the community to come and learn about the influence this test and these standards will have on their children’s future.
