PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE:

Dear Families,


It was a great first week of school!  Students reconnected with old friends and made new friends, rehearsed the BUBB way (Be safe, Use respect, Be responsible, Be an upstander), took their iReady reading diagnostic assessment (in grades 1-5), practiced a fire drill, and learned new skills in reading, writing, and math!  Tomorrow, students in grades 1-5 will take the iReady math diagnostic.  Next week, our Kindergarteners will take their iReady diagnostic assessments.  


Please plan on attending Back to School Night on Thursday, August 25th.  At this important in-person event, you will learn more about your child’s teacher and classroom, ways that you can support your child’s learning, and meet other families.  

6:00-6:45 Presentation for grades K-2 and Ms. Lopa’s class in the classrooms

6:45-7:00 All School meeting near the Peace Tree (the canopy area of the blacktop)

7:00-7:45 Presentation for grades 3-5 in the classrooms


Some quick reminders:

*If your child completed the Summer Learning Challenge, please have them turn in their logs by this Friday!

*Follow us on facebook to see our weekly Morning meeting where students lead the pledge and the school song and we review our weekly announcements.


Have a wonderful week!


In partnership,

Principal Cyndee

SCHOOL NEWS

School Picture Day

Mark your calendars!  Picture day is Wednesday, August 31, 2022. Flyers and order forms will be sent home with your student this Friday.

 

Water Bottles

The weather has been sunny and hot!  Be sure to send your child to school with a water bottle daily, especially on days when students have PE. Write your child’s name on the bottle so it can be returned if misplaced.  Students can refill their water bottles at the refill stations at the drinking fountains.

 

Reporting absences

To report an absence, call the office at (650) 526-3480 and press 2, or email [email protected].  Provide the following information: date of absence, student’s name, room number, reason for absence, and name and relationship of the person reporting the absence. It is very important, for safety reasons, that we know the reason why a student is not present at school. 


Early Pick Up  

If your child must leave early, an adult must come to the office and sign the student out. For security reasons, no one is allowed to go to the classroom to pick up students. The office will call the classroom to have the child come up to the office.  Students are released only to persons on the emergency card, unless we have a written note or a phone call from a parent whom we can identify. Kindergarten parents must notify the teacher if there is a change in the pickup person.


Lost and Found

All parents are encouraged to label their child’s clothing with the student’s initials and room number. Lost and found items are placed on the lost and found rack located in or outside the office. Students and parents should check the rack frequently for lost articles of clothing and/or lunchboxes. All unclaimed items are donated to charity at the end of the trimester.
