PARCC Letter from Ms. Nota

Dear Cranston Public Schools Community,

As we approach this year’s PARCC testing period and having analyzed our results from last year, it is evident that we have accomplished much and also have work ahead of us as a district.  While standardized testing is a piece of how we assess student learning, it is important that parents, educators and the community understand that it is only one facet of our education system. For many years, standardized tests have been given to students and used as tools to refine curricula, examine course taking patterns, address learning gaps for students, etc. However, these tests do not singularly define our mission for children. Please keep these scores in perspective as results of tests, which provide useful data to us to ensure children are accessing high quality curriculum and which we are federally obligated to administer. PARCC is aligned with our expectations for students at every grade level, the work students do in class every day, and the skills that students will need for success beyond high school, including problem solving and critical thinking. We also know that a high quality education is reflected in graduation rates, college acceptance data, access to career and technical programs, arts, athletics and many other programs that are not measured by test scores.

Class of 2020 Night - February 11th

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2020:

Let me be the first to welcome you to the Cranston High School East family!  Your sons/daughters will be joining the ranks of the tens of thousands of proud and distinguished Cranston East alumni and students.

Currently, your student is attending either Park View or Bain, both fine institutions in their own right.  However, they will soon be coming together to join the Cranston High School East Class of 2020.  Here, the students will be expected to carry on the tradition of excellence, both in their classes and extra-curricular activities.  

To this end, Cranston High School East invites you and your student to attend a welcoming class night on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the Cranston East Auditorium.  For those interested, tours of Cranston East will be conducted beginning at 6 p.m., with the orientation in the Auditorium immediately following at 7 p.m.  At this meeting, we will be discussing the various requirements that your student will be responsible for during their high school career and some of the programs which we offer at the school.

In order to prepare you for this meeting, we will be meeting with all students at both Park View and Bain on Thursday, February 11, during the school day, to explain the course selection process.  They will be receiving a course selection worksheet on this day that they should be bringing home.  I would ask that you please bring this sheet with you and your student to our meeting on February 11, as we will be discussing this document.

I look forward to seeing each of you on February 11th and Go ‘Bolts.  


Sean T. Kelly
