Peninsula School District students in grades 3-8 and selected 9th graders will participate in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Field Test this spring. Participation is confidential, and there will be no impact on your child’s grades.
This is a very exciting opportunity for our District. Students will be able to try out new, online testing software and innovative question types that will be very similar on future Smarter Balanced assessments. By participating in the field test, your child will be influencing the development of future Smarter Balanced assessments used in our schools.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation, please contact your school.

Dear Parents, Staff, Students and Community Members:
Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 9, at 2:00 a.m. We spring forward instead of falling back. With losing an hour of precious time, it makes me realize that we are springing forward past the midway point in the school year. We next turn our attention to year-end activities and planning for next year.
As the weather changes (from heavy rain to light rain), it is sometimes easy to lose focus. Every minute of every day is important for our students. I want to thank all of you for making the most out of the educational experience for students. Spring will bring celebrations, awards, and graduations. Just like the clock this Sunday morning, our students are springing forward. Thank you to staff, parents and the community for getting them ready for the next great thing. In the meantime, we still have considerable work and fun ahead of us for the rest of this year! Here are a few items that you might find of interest.
Kindergarten registration for fall kicks off this Saturday, March 8, from 9:00 a.m. through 12:00 p.m. at each elementary school. Please help spread the word to your friends and neighbors. To register, please bring a birth certificate, immunization records, and a utility bill as proof of address. You can access registration forms in advance at the 2014-15 Kindergarten Registration page. Welcome to the Class of 2027!
