 WHAT'S HAPPENING

 
Friendly reminder:
School begins promptly at 8:15. To avoid being tardy, please drop students off between 7:45 and 8:05. Students should not be dropped off before 7:45 as there is no supervision.
Student Lunch Drop-off 
If you are dropping off lunch for a student, we ask that all lunches are in the office by 10:30 a.m. regardless of the grade level and please let your child know ahead of time that you will be bringing a lunch for them.  We have a pen/post-it for you to mark your child’s lunch but we highly recommend that you write your child’s name directly on your child’s lunch bag. We tell all students to pick up their lunch in the cafeteria. We do not call the classrooms to let them know there is a lunch in the office.
 
Almuerzo para estudiantes
Si está dejando el almuerzo para un estudiante, le pedimos que todos los almuerzos estén en la oficina antes de las 10:30 am sin importar el nivel de grado y por favor deje que su hijo sepa de antemano que va a traer un almuerzo para ellos. Tenemos una pluma / post-it para que usted pueda marcar el almuerzo de su hijo, pero le recomendamos que escriba el nombre de su hijo directamente en la bolsa de almuerzo de su hijo. Les decimos a todos los estudiantes que recojan su almuerzo en la cafetería. No llamamos a las aulas para hacerles saber que hay un almuerzo en la oficina.
 
Closed Campus
All visitors must sign in at the office and wear a visitor's sticker. We are a closed campus for the safety of all our students.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Dear parents,

Consider the following activities.I have some suggestions that you can try with your student. 
Learning with leaves
Fall leaves aren’t just fun and colorful—they’re ideal for practicing all sorts of skills. Help your youngster collect leaves from the ground, and enjoy these activities together.
Leaf prints. Have your child dip each leaf into finger paint and firmly press it onto a sheet of white paper. He’ll see the imprints of the veins - ask what he thinks the veins are for. (They deliver water to the leaves.)
Graph of leaves. Encourage your youngster to sort his leaves into columns, lining them up evenly across each row. If he sorted by color, you could ask, “How many more red leaves are there than yellow leaves?” or “Which color did you gather the most of?”
The story of my leaf. Suggest that your child pick his favorite leaf and write a story starring it as the main character. Perhaps he will write about the leaf changing color or being carried to the ocean by the wind.
Estimados padres,
El otoño está aquí y me gustaría sugerirles algunas actividades que puede hacer con su estudiante.
Aprender con hojas
Las hojas del otoño no son sólo divertidas y vistosas: son además ideales para practicar todo tipo de habilidades. Dígale a su hijo que recoja hojas del suelo y disfruten juntos con estas actividades.
Estampados de hojas. Dígale a su hijo que moje cada hoja en pintura para dedos y oprímanlas firmemente sobre un folio de papel blanco. Verá las impresiones de las venas: pregúntele para qué cree que sirven las venas. (Para llevar agua a las hojas.)
Gráficas de hojas. Anime a su hijo a ordenar sus hojas en columnas, alineándolas por igual encada fila. Si las ordenó por color, podría preguntarle: “¿Cuántas más hojas rojas hay que amarillas?” o “¿De qué color recogiste más?”
La historia de mi hoja. Sugiérale a su hijo que elija su hoja favorita y que escriba un cuento con la hoja como protagonista. Quizá pueda escribir sobre la hoja que cambia de color o a la que lleva el viento hasta el mar.
