Welcome Fall! Our summer was great! From Back to School Ice-cream social, Robo band show, Cooking classes, and more have been so much fun. Thank you for participating in all of our events. We are looking forward to all Fall has to bring. Links to Learning has started! Please be sure to check outside your child’s classroom door to see the weekly skills and to read the “What we learned today.” At the end of each month you will receive a curriculum folder that contains monthly skill sheets that detail the previous months’ concepts, activities, and goals we work to meet. The folder will also contain samples of your child’s work that shows the growth and development and can also be linked back to the monthly skills sheet. The Links to Home sheet will give you a preview of what is to be expected in the next month to come. A monthly Spanish poster will also be included in the folder to highlight the words your child has learned that month. This is just one of the ways our school makes you a vital part of your child’s learning experience.
Sincerely, Stephanie Gill/Principal

Johnny Appleseed Day! We will be celebrating Johnny Appleseed on Sept. 26th with apple tasting and apple activities in the classrooms.
Student File Folders and Immunization Records- We have many children that have incomplete or empty student files here at school. Because we are licensed, it is very important that these files are kept up to date and are complete. Each year the state of California Health Department requires us to do an audit of each child’s immunization record. Please provide us with an updated immunization record as soon as possible. We would be happy to photo copy this here for you. Thank you
Scholastic Book Fairs here October 4-10th, 2017. During this time you can purchase books off the shelves in our hallway/lobby for your children and the classrooms. Books purchased during these dates will allow our school to receive 50% of the total proceeds back in books for the classrooms.
