ISAT testing begins on Tuesday, March 8 for students in grades 3-8. Testing will continue through March 18th. A letter about ISAT testing was sent home. It is of utmost importance that your child comes to school on time during testing. If he/she is late on test days he/she will not be able to take the test with the rest of his/her class and will have to be scheduled for a make-up testing session. In addition, please make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep and eats a good breakfast each morning.
Daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 13. Please remember to set your clocks one hour ahead.
BE RESPECTFUL BE RESPONSIBLE DO THE RIGHT THING
On February 24th and 25th students in grades 1-6 were able to purchase items using their Eagle Pride Tickets.
A special thank you to Ms. Staples and Ms. Brown for coordinating this and other special events for PBIS. A special thank you also to the three parent volunteers, Mrs. Juana Serrano, Mrs. Maria Almazan, and Mrs. Maricela Marin who helped with the school store.
Congratulations to our Cheer/Pom team. On February 25th they won the Area 11 competition which was held at Bogan High School. They will now advance to the regional competition which will be held on March 18th. A special thank you to Ms. Rogers, the teamŐs coach, and Mrs. Weiss, parent volunteer, for your dedication to the girls.
Maintaining good attendance is a priority. Attendance for the month of February was 94.69. The District goal is 95%. Our goal is 98%. Every parent should ensure that his/her child comes to school everyday, on time. However, when your child is absent from school, please remember to send a note to school when he/she returns. The note should include your childŐs name, room number, the date(s) of absence, the reason for the absence and your signature. The note is filed in your childŐs attendance folder which is kept in the main office. Please be aware that after five unexcused days of absence, you will receive a five day letter and after ten days of unexcused absence, you will receive a ten day letter sent registered mail. Attendance is especially important for students in grades 3, 6, and 8. After nine unexcused days of absence, a student may be required to attend summer school in order to be promoted to the next grade.
There are after school tutoring opportunities available for students in grades 1 – 8. Please see Mr. DeSantiago after school for more information and to register your child.
