LCFF (Free and Reduced Lunch) Forms
Thank you to all of the families who returned your LCFF (Free and Reduced Lunch) Forms! We sent home over 250 forms, and we have received over half of them back. We need every single form returned, as this will ensure our federal funding for next school year. The information you provide is confidential. If you received a form and lost it, please let your child's teacher know or come to the main office for a new one. Our parent rep, Marvella Jacobo, will be calling families who have not turned it in. Please turn it in as soon as possible. Our dealing is October 27th!
Thank you to all of the parents who came to our Academic Parent Teacher Team meetings! I have already seen the students showing more interest in their learning goals and targets. In Mr. Carter's class, his students were reviewing the data for how much they have improved in learning their multiplication facts. Students who have made big gains also shared their secrets. One student has been practicing 30 minutes per day and went from 0 facts at the beginning of the year to over 40!
Our next parent engagement event will be Student-Led Conferences the week of November 10th. Please go ahead and mark this on your calendars. We will have minimum days that week; students will be dismissed at 12:35. Remember, you must bring your child with you to the conference, because he or she will be leading the conversation on what he or she has learned. Your child will explain his or her grades, and you will see his or her work and get his or her report card. We look forward to seeing everyone for this important event!
This 2014-15 school uniforms are mandatory. Students must wear burgundy tops and grey pants. Sweaters and jackets must be black, grey, or burgundy. Shoes must be athletic shoes (no flats, sandals, or boots).
On Thursday, October 16th, letters inviting students to after-school intervention will be sent home. Please look for this letter and let us know if your child will be participating. Intervention will start the week of October 27th and last until December 19th in grades K-4. There will be math and reading intervention groups. Please ask your child's teacher if you need more information.
