Dear West Mercer Families,
Winter Break is rapidly approaching, along with the end of 2014 and the start of a new year. I hope that all of you have a wonderful few weeks over Winter Break with family and friends.
As we embark on a new calendar year, I wanted to take an opportunity to share with you some information about the Common Core State Standards. Over the past few years, our teachers have been transitioning their curriculum and instruction to address the Common Core, and these standards will be assessed for the first time this year through the Smarter Balanced Assessment.
