What a phenomenal year! The last month has been filled with many successful events – science fair, field trips, Open House, class plays…
Thank you, parents, for your incredible support of our school. Students enjoy, and will continue to enjoy, weekly visits to each of our specialists – art, music, library, computer lab, and PE. I know our children will continue to benefit from that well-rounded education!
As you prepare for summer vacation, I have a few things for you to think about:
Students – I encourage you to keep your brains active… Read a book, keep a journal, practice those math facts!
Parents – teachers have been working hard on our transition to new content standards; the California Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Below is a link to a 3 minute video that explains what the Common Core is and why we are moving to the new standards:
Check out more about the CCSS on our school website.
We are also beginning a feasibility study into the elementary International Baccalaureate program. Check out more information at the district website:
An important summer reminder:
- Our field is closed for the next 10 weeks to complete a re-seeding process and restore our green grass. Please encourage your neighbors to stay off our field for the next 10 weeks so we might have a successful rejuvenation and all enjoy the green grass come August!
- Our office will be closed from June 25 - August 6.
It has been such a joy getting to know and work with each of you over the last three years! Thank you for all your well wishes as I move on to be a stay at home mom. I wish you all the best and a great summer!
Sarah Medler, Ed.D.
