Week 32 Preview & End-of-Year Key Dates

Greetings Designers and Design Families!

This week, both 11th and 12th grade students had fun and informative opportunities to be off campus! Our 11th graders go to go on college field trips to local universities like Pepperdine, LMU and OTIS. And, our 12th graders had the chance today to go on the annual Senior Beach Day field trip.

Senior families: Senior Activities are upon us! See the important dates below for Prom, Senior Grad Nite, and Graduation. For more details, look for the Senior Activities 2023 page in the “Resources” bar found on the right side of the blog.

As we approach the end of the school year, it is an important time to be able to get the best understanding of our students’ learning and achievement so that we can start planning supports and curriculum for next year. Some important tools for assessing our students are MAP growth testing and CAASPP state testing. Stay tuned for details on these important assessments, and see dates below. Thank you for helping to ensure that students are in attendance and prepared to do their best for testing on these days.
