Common Core State Standards Test
As the Common Core State Standards field test is quickly approaching, LHS wanted to make you aware of some new resources available to parents. You will find several new links on the www.lodiusd.net public page found under Common Core/Smarter Balanced Assessment on the left side of the home page.
The first page in this section has several informative videos for parents with students of all ages. Along with the videos, there is a direct link to the training test so students can practice at home. You will also find a section on useful links such as the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which has a substantial section devoted to CCSS.
The web site will continue to be updated as we move toward CCSS.
Hello from Lodi High! As Principal, I just have to pass this along. Visitors passing through Lodi last weekend encountered a group of Lodi High students at Pietro's, and had some very kind things to say about that chance meeting. If you know your student was one of those referred to in this very complementary letter (see below) please let them know this is what can happen when they take the time to be considerate to passing strangers. It doesn't surprise me; we see this every day walking the hallways and interacting with our students at Lodi. In this season of Thanks, I am also thankful that perfect strangers set the time aside to formally complement the courtesy and civility of a group of teenagers. Why? Because teenagers are typically overlooked and "under-rewarded" for the good things and random acts of kindness they do. Needless to say, this kind of encouragement is important for our students to experience, as the effects of doing so not only build character, but tend to be contagious in a good way. We're proud of your kids, as I'm sure you are.
WE ARE THE.....
