Common Core Parent Informaion
California is one of 45 states nationwide to adopt the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English/Language Arts and mathematics. This shift in teaching has been characterized by some as “the most significant change to classroom instruction since 1998,” when California first adopted its own academic standards. Click the Common Core link above to learn more about the standards and how the Oceanside Unified School District is implementing Common Core in the classroom.

8 Keys of Excellence
This month we will be honoring members of the Palmquist learning community who demonstrate the Key of Excellence for September:
THIS IS IT!
This Is It! is about focusing on NOW instead of later, or next week, or next month, or next year, or yesterday - and making the most of it. A positive This Is It! attitude can make everything we do and every day productive, fulfilling, and fun! A positive outlook leads to positive learning.
BEST students strive to:
SUCCESSFUL FALL WEED AND FEED
