Fall Musical - A Year of Frog and Toad
Frog and Toad was so much fun! The casting was marvelous, costumes were inventive, scenery was beautifully done, and the parent helpers were superb. If you missed this show, you really missed something special.
The DJ Dash
Mrs. DJ's fifth and sixth graders did a great job in December when they challenged themselves to finish a 5k run through Bidwell Park. They started and finished strong, learning more about themselves and their abilities than they realized was possible. Congratulations to every last one of them!

Common Core - What does it mean?
There has been a lot of talk about Common Core State Standards and Common Core curriculum over the last year or so.There has been a lot of talk about Common Core State Standards and Common Core Curriculum over the last year or so. What does that mean for our families and students?
The Common Core Standards have currently been adopted by forty-five states. These standards help set clear and consistent expectations for students, parents, and teachers, regardless of where students may live. FRCS families will see some changes this year and next in response to our implementation of the new standards. The changes will not be dramatic as much of our curriculum was designed using materials and resources from states at the forefront of this change in education.
In a nutshell, the focus on the new standards is to increase the depth of student learning. Rather than rote learning or memorization, students will learn, and teach to others, the how and why behind the concepts through exploration and hands-on opportunities. This depth of knowledge will then be tested by the new computer-based, adaptive CalMapp standardized test rather than the old, fill-in-the-bubble STAR standardized test.
