To all K3 Families, I hope you find yourself well during this extended school closure.  It is my hope to stay in communication with you all, especially the children. 


It is very important to keep a routine with the children.  This includes a proper bedtime and a proper morning wake up time. Children should have 10-12 hours sleep each night. Make sure they have a nutritious breakfast and a set schedule to do school work.  The routine will keep them focused and calm.


LAUSD is providing two “grab and go” meals Monday-Friday from 7:00-10:00 am.  The closest site to our school is Byrd Middle School at 8501 Arleta Avenue.  Please go to receive healthy meals each day.  To find additional sites you may look at LAUSD website.


For the time being I have not heard any updates about this extended school closure, but I will reach out with any updates as they become available to me.  Remember to wash hands and keep all surfaces clean.


I would love to get work updates from the children.  Please feel free to send me pictures or scanned pdf. files of their work.  It is so fun to share!



for sharing your picture!


I hope you had FUN!

New Elementary California Content Standards Progress Report

Resources and Information  

The Los Angeles Unified School District is activating a new elementary progress report in MiSiS this 2017-2018 school year. Please bookmark this page for future reference as resources related to the new elementary progress report will be updated and maintained at this webpage for your convenience. This webpage is also available through this link: http://tinyurl.com/NewReportCard

Online E-learning Course for Parents

This e-learning course is designed for parents as the audience to assist you with the task of informing and supporting parents in understanding the new progress report, the reason for this change, and the history of its development.

Elementary School Progress Report Marking Practices and Procedures




The District has a four-level scoring scale for grades K-5/6 using the numbers 4, 3, 2, and 1 to indicate student achievement, with the score of four being the highest.

Aligned to the California content standards, these criteria describe the expected performance levels for students at each grade.

1. Achievement in the academic subjects is indicated as noted below. The following excerpts are from the K-5/6 progress report:

Academic Achievement Scores K-5/6

Indicates student progress towards achievement of grade-level California content standards.

4 = Exceeds grade level standards
3 = Meets grade level standards
2 = Progressing toward meeting grade level standards 1 = Minimal progress toward grade level standards N/A = Not assesses in current reporting period*

= Assessed during reporting period

*N/A may be used in reporting periods 1 and 2 only. A final numeric score must be given in all subjects for the final, reporting period 3.

2. Scores for TK-5/6 Behaviors of a College-Prepared and Career-Ready Learner indicate student’s demonstration of the 21st Century Skills in connection with the expectations of their grade level standards. The following excerpts are from the progress report:

Behaviors of a College-Prepared and Career-Ready Learner K-5/6

Indicates student’s demonstration of the 21st Century Skills aligned to the California content standards (CCS) expectations from CDE.
C = Consistently
S = Sometimes

R = Rarely


1. Scores for English Language Development (ELD) indicate the amount of progress an English learner has made toward achieving the state ELD standards Part I: Interacting in Meaningful Ways and Part II: How English Works.



Advanced Progress

Demonstrating ADVANCED PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Average Progress

Demonstrating PARTIALLY PROFICIENT PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Partial Progress

Demonstrating AVERAGE PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


Limited Progress

Demonstrating LIMITED PROGRESS in the ELD proficiency level standards


With the LAUSD implementation of the 2012 California ELD standards there was a shift from five English language proficiency levels to three levels. The three English language proficiency levels are as follows:



Bridging: Students at this ELD proficiency level continue to learn and apply a range of high level English language skills in a wide variety of contexts, including comprehension and production of highly technical texts. Students are ready to transition to full engagement in grade level academic tasks and activities in a variety of content areas without the need for specialized ELD instruction.


Expanding: Students at this ELD proficiency level are challenged to increase their English skills in more contexts, learn a greater variety of vocabulary and linguistic structures, and apply their growing language skills in more sophisticated ways appropriate to their age and grade level.


Emerging: Students at this ELD proficiency level typically progress very quickly, learning to use English for immediate needs as well as beginning to understand and use academic vocabulary and other features of academic language.

Saticoy's Champion Scholars




Dual Language Education Can Close Achievement Gap



Dual language learning has been found to be the only method of second language acquisition to facilitate the full closure of the achievement gap between English learners and English speakers in primary and secondary education. Strictly structured and well-implemented dual language instruction across all subjects of the curriculum provides all students the opportunity to develop a deep academic proficiency in two languages, which will give them the tools to become highly-sought-after bilingual professionals in today's more globalized world.

Dress Code and Uniform Policy

Saticoy Elementary School

Student Dress Code and Uniform Policy


Research (A Program of Union Pacific Foundation; http://www.education.com ; http://www.statisticbrain.com) shows that school uniforms support a safe and disciplined learning environment, which is the first requirement of any good school. As it was announced at the beginning of the school year through Parent Handbook, Parent Newsletter, Kindergarten Orientation and Back to School Night, as of January 12th, 2014, there is a mandatory school uniform policy at Saticoy Elementary School.




School Uniform Policy will promote school safety, improve discipline, and enhance the learning environment.

The benefits of school uniforms include:


  • Decreasing violence and theft
  • Instilling student with discipline
  • Helping parents and students resist peer pressure
  • Helping students concentrate on their school work
  • Helping school officials recognize intruders who come to the school
  • Making children feel equal to their peers, in terms of appearance
  • Promoting a sense of school pride

School Uniform Policy


Shirts –Navy, Gray, White (With Collar, Crew Neck, V-Neck Shirts)

Pants –Navy-Blue, Khakis-Tan,

Skirts or Skorts – Navy-Blue or Tan

Shoes or Sneakers – Shoes/sneakers must fit securely on the foot.




The following shoes are not allowed:

  • Elevated shoes
  • Wheelies
  • Shoes on heels
  • Shoes with open toes
  • Backless shoes (flip flops, sandals, crocs, water-shoes)

Saticoy Elementary will strive to achieve full compliance through the use of positive reinforcement measures. No student will be considered non-compliant with the uniform policy in the following instances:

  • When the students’ parent or guardian has secured an exemption from the school policy.
  • When a field trip or school event may require specialized clothing


Please notify the school in writing at the beginning of the year if your child has a medical condition or religious reason that requires a modification of the dress code.


Uniforms can be purchased at a variety of retailers including, but not limited to, Old Navy, Sears, Target, Walmart, GAP, K-Mart and most department stores. 


Families who are experiencing financial difficulties, will be assisted in purchasing school uniforms. Please contact Ms. Lopez/ Ms. Aridjian, Parent Community Representatives, for more information.

About Saticoy

School Accountability Report Card


By February 1 of each year, every school in California is required by state law to publish a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The SARC contains information about the condition and performance of each California public school. Under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) all local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to prepare a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which describes how they intend to meet annual school-specific goals for all pupils, with specific activities to address state and local priorities. Additionally, data reported in an LCAP is to be consistent with data reported in the SARC.
