We began our research project on sharks this week.  Students will complete this project both in and out of the classroom using their iPads.  I know I’m excited and hope the students share in this excitement!  It should be a wonderful learning opportunity!  Just a reminder from our wonderful ladies in the front office, Mrs. Sabbagh in particular. Parents we need your help in reducing the amount of absences and tardies happening at our school. Currently we have had 326 absences in K-8th grade which puts us at 97%. The states goal is for schools to be at 95% or better at the end of the year. We know with the flu season coming that our percentage will decrease. We also process about 30-50 tardies per day. The high numbers being on special days such as prep pride day or dress down days. We are asking for your help by making sure your students are in their seats at 7:30 and that you are scheduling doctor appointments after school and scheduling family vacations during school days off. Have a wonderful rest of your week!

We ask that all hair, makeup, accessories and costumes be worn to school. Students will not have an opportunity to change in or out of their costume at school.  -  Costumes should be appropriate for school. The principal or principal's designee have the authority to determine appropriateness of costumes.The dress code policy and all school rules apply. No high heels, mini-skirts/shorts, or tank tops. The costumes should not be bloody or with the desire to scare someone. Parents are invited to attend the parade and are asked to line up along the field facing the school on the west side of the campus. We will not be having a Halloween party in either class and ask that treats are not sent to school with students on Wednesday.  Dr. Vizcarra and I will have academic activities related to Halloween to celebrate the occasion. Thursday is Prep Pride Day.  Thursday morning student council will have a table set up to face paint for Prep Pride Day.  Hope to see kids in black and orange!  Friday is our field trip to the Grand Canyon! Students attending the trip will need to be at the school at 5:00AM.  The temperature for the Grand Canyon on Friday will be a high of 59 degrees as of today.  Please make sure to send your child with a coat or sweatshirt to accommodate this temperature difference.  We are looking forward to an exciting experience at the Grand Canyon!

Happy Tuesday! We completed our ELA pre-test assessment yesterday and today.  As students finished they did a great job at giving their peers a respectful testing environment by picking up their silent reading book and reading.  Tomorrow we will be returning to our regularly scheduled show for the rest of the week.  Students were sent home with the spelling homework for this week yesterday.  I will provide that list below for your reference.  I will be sending a reading passage for the second half of the week on Wednesday.  This passage will include comprehension questions.  Students are expected to answer these questions in complete sentences.    Thursday is our first Prep Pride Day! Hope to see everyone decked out in orange and black!  I will try my best to meet the students’ expectations!   Friday is dollar dress down day!  Please make sure your child has a dollar in hand if they are out of uniform on Friday.    Happy early birthday to our friend and classmate Damian! He celebrates his birthday on Friday, August 31!   Major stray drain faint claim graze ache slate neighbor railway display relay nickname eighteen obeyed

Hello parents and guardians! Happy Wednesday! This week we have begun sending homework in the blue communication folders.  Students have been completing spelling homework for me and have been told to read for 20 minutes a day. They have the spelling list on the spelling homework sheet in the folder. Students should be completing only one spelling task per day.  These tasks are checked daily and should be returning to school with the students.  On Thursdays students should be tested on their spelling words at home by a parent, older sibling, or other willing participant. We have not been provided with agendas yet but will quickly get those to students when we have them. A parent signature will be required in these agendas to show homework was completed once we begin sending these home. Below I will provide the spelling list for your reference as we close in on Thursday.   I sent home the iPad agreement form today with a handful of students who have not yet returned them. Please check your child’s backpack if you have not filled out this form yet.  We are so close to having all turned in and getting to use our iPads.  I know the students are super excited to start using them! A reminder, this Friday is school picture day! Students are able to dress down for this.  1) flat 2) cash  3) band  4) left  5) shelf 6)wealth 7) hint 8) plot 9) odd 10) plum 11) crunch 12) build 13) when 14) sandwich 15) typical
