2014 Rotary Read In
On Thursday, February 27, 2014 Cleveland Elementary School students in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade participated in the Rotary Read In. The Rotary Read In is an annual event wherein community members are invited to buy a book and read it to an elementary class. The volunteers spent about 30 minutes reading and discussing the story with our classes. Students answered the volunteers questions about the stories and shared their love of reading. We wanted to thank all of the volunteers who visited our school and our staff who helped organize the event. Thanks to everyone for making this event a success.

Cleveland Elementary School improved by SIX points from last year's API of 712. Cleveland Elementary's API is now 718! Last year, Mrs. Mohammadkhan and Dr. Ceja promised our students they would kiss a frog if our school made a five point API improvement. Our students surpassed the API goal, which means Mrs. Mohammadkhan and Dr. Ceja both kissed a frog at award assemblies on October 10th and 11th.

Back to School Night
On Thursday, August 29, 2013 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm, Cleveland Elementary School invited all parents and students to attend Back to School Night. There were over 300 parents in attendance who took advantage of this opportunity to learn more about their children's classroom.
Among items our teachers discussed were classroom rules, homework policies, field trips, and schoolwide incentive programs. Teachers invited parents to become active participants in their child's classroom. In addition, Mrs. Mohammadkhan and Dr. Ceja also presented parents with information regarding the Title One Program, Cleveland Elementary School's academic progress, and information regarding our Readiness and Emergency Management School Plan.
During the event, parents received a free hot dog dinner provided by volunteers from Central United Methodist Church. We wanted to extend a big thank you to all of our teachers, parents, and volunteers who made this event a success. To view pictures from the event click on the image below.
Cleveland Limo Lunch
On Thursday, May 30, 2013, Cleveland Elementary School Students who had read over 1 million words were able to ride in a limousine and were provided with a catered lunch. There were many students who achieved this monumental goal. Students enjoyed riding in a limo and were treated to a fifteen minute ride around town. Afterward, students were treated to a catered lunch and desert. We wanted to thank all of the students, parents, staff, and volunteers who made this event possible. We expect many more students will reach this goal next year.

CST Water Balloon Celebration
On March 14, 2013 at 12:10 pm, Cleveland Elementary School celebrated meeting its Academic Performance Index goal during the 2011-2012 school year. Cleveland School students met this goal by improving their academic achievement on the California Standards test. Last year, our students made a 17 point gain on the California Academic Performance Index. This far exceeded our goal of increasing our API by 3 points.
Every student in grades 2nd through 8th grade who scored proficient/advanced or increased a performance band was able to throw a water balloon at the school administrators, Mrs. Mohammadkhan and Mrs. Pedraza. Mrs. Pedraza returned to Cleveland Elementary School for this special event to celebrate our students' outstanding accomplishment. There were 370 water balloons thrown at Mrs. Mohammadkahn and Mrs. Pedraza.
This year, we hope to meet our Academic Performance Index goal of increasing by 5 points bringing Cleveland's API to 717. To view pictures from the CST Water Balloon Celebration please click on the image below.
The Cleveland School community provides a high level, standards-based education ensuring all students achieve their full academic potential and become responsible, respectful citizens and leaders in a global society.
