A Message from the Principal

Mr. John M. Fanning, PrincipalDear Parents,

The 2015-2016 school year has progressed at a quick pace. As we begin the fourth quarter, I wanted to, once again, thank all parents for taking an active approach to their children’s education. It is imperative that all stakeholders stay involved in educating our youth. Calabasas is committed to creating an exemplary educational environment for your children, and together, we can make that happen. 

We are currently in the process of administering our state assessments, which include AIMS science (4th and 8th grades) and AzMERIT. Our staff has worked tirelessly to ensure that our students have all of the tools necessary to be successful. Within the “Doctrine of No Surprises," we have made it a point to ensure that the students have been taught the content, as well as the context of that which will be assessed in the coming weeks. 

In preparing for the upcoming assessments, you, as parents, play a crucial role in the students’ success. Here are a few tips to ready your child for the upcoming assessments: 

  • Make sure that your child gets an ample, normal amount of sleep during the entire week of AIMS/ AzMERIT. 
  • Students should eat a nutritious and filling breakfast. If possible, avoid high-sugar cereals, which can make the student hyper and/or unfocused. It is also advised that you send healthy snacks to school on a daily basis during testing for your child. This is an important factor that often gets overlooked. 
  • Make sure that your child is on time on each of the testing days. 
  • Try not to put too much pressure on the student. Reinforce that as long as he/she worked hard in preparation and did his/her absolute best, you will be proud of him/her. 
  • Have your child visualize success. Encourage them to rehearse what it will feel like to get a good score on the test. 
  • Work with your child to focus on breathing. Stress is often caused by insufficient oxygen to the brain. Work with your child to take time before the test begins to take a number of deep, cleansing breaths, exhaling slowly. Focusing on breathing by taking some time when stress levels rise helps to focus the mind during testing. 
  • Try to use positive language when talking about expectations of the test. 
  • Keep a positive attitude about testing in general around your child and emphasize his/her ability to demonstrate what they have learned rather than the consequences of not passing. 

Thanks again for all of your support as parents. We truly appreciate all that you do to prepare your child for a wonderful educational experience.

Your Partner in Education,

John M. Fanning

Mr. John M. Fanning, Principal
