6th Graders Present at STEM Conference
On November 18, our 6th graders will be showcasing their "Driving the Future" cross-curricular, Common Core based projects on Alternative Fuel Vehicles at the First Annual STEM Conference in Sacramento. They have been researching, experimenting, and creating their final presentations over the past 6 weeks. Please visit the STEM webpage for a more detailed look at their projects.
If you currently drive a vehicle, please take a few moments to complete the survey below and help our students gather data for their essential question: "What alternative vehicle best meets the needs of the Latrobe Community?" We appreciate your participation.

Mr. Nate Ervin, Class of 1947 and great-grandson of James H. Miller, visited Miller's Hill on Sept 20 along with several other Latrobe alumni. Mr. Ervin gifted to our schools the framed portrait of James Miller plus copies of documents including a biography of James and Eliza Ann Miller and James Miller's diary from when he crossed the plains from Tennessee to California in 1852. Thank you Nate for your fantastic gifts to Latrobe, and the students really enjoyed the special "Nate Nickels!"

Common Core Standards
Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school.
Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.
The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards.
