Roadrunner Folders ~Home/School Communication
Every Wednesday, your child will be given a 'Purple Folder' to take home. Inside you will find important communication from the school, corrected papers, forms that need to be completed by a parent, and even fun opportunities for your student and family. Please be sure to ask for the folder, if your child forgets to give it to you. By sending it right back the next day you can be sure to receive all communications that are sent on the next Wednesday.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE    
 
Welcome to South/West Park. It’s a pleasure to offer our students and community such a beautiful school. We are finally back to our site. Thank you for your support during the last 18 months of construction and being so cooperative with several transitions during the period of construction. We could have not done it with the support of our entire community. A big thank you to our staff for their support in helping with this transition. They spent many hours preparing their classroom during our Thanksgiving Break to have the rooms ready for their students.  Our office staff for transitioning our office for the second time to our final destination.  Our students for eagerly waiting for their new school and to you parents for helping with the new procedures and routines for arrival and dismissal. We are arriving and dismissing from one area (Mt. Diablo).  I understand this is new and takes time to get our traffic to efficiently go through.  Please be patient and let’s give it enough time to know how effective it can be. If after doing it for a couple of weeks we still find that it does not work, then I will gladly re-consider other options.  Please be patient in the car line and please stand in the far East side of our building if you are waiting for students, so everyone can get out quickly and safely.  I also ask that you do not arrive too early, or your car is stopping other parents from earlier dismissals to pick up their children.  A big thank you to our CDI Preschool and SWP preschool for their support in their new procedure. We see our entire arrival and dismissal being faster each day. Thank you for your support!
 
December is practically over. Less than two weeks left before our Winter Break. I wish all of a wonderful Christmas & Happy New Year.  Please join us for our Sing-A-Long Program organized by our Music and Physical Education Teacher. We have two performances (8:45 & 10:00 a.m.).  Please stop by and enjoy our students Christmas songs.  Since both of these shows will be before our PM Preschool class begins, we invite Preschool parents to bring their preschool children to either show to help us sing.  Come and join us! Enjoy your two weeks off and see you on Tuesday, January 3rd.

Bienvenidos a South/West Park. Es un placer ofrecer a nuestros estudiantes y a la comunidad una escuela tan hermosa; finalmente estamos de regreso en nuestro plantel. Muchas gracias por su apoyo durante los 18 meses de construcción y también por su cooperación  con las diferentes transiciones durante este periodo. Todo esto no habría sido posible sin la colaboración de la comunidad entera. Un agradecimiento especial también a todo el personal por toda su ayuda con esta transición. Ellos dedicaron muchas horas preparando sus salones de clases durante sus vacaciones de otoño, de manera que todo estuviera listo para sus alumnos. A nuestro personal de oficina, por hacer una segunda transición hasta nuestro destino final. A nuestros estudiantes, por esperar con entusiasmo su nueva escuela y a ustedes los padres de familia, por ayudarnos con los nuevos procedimientos y rutinas a las horas de entrada y salida.  Ahora estamos llegando y saliendo por una sola zona (Mt. Diablo). Entiendo que esto es nuevo y que toma tiempo lograr que el tráfico fluya de manera eficiente. Por favor sea paciente y démosle un tiempo para ver si esto es efectivo. Si después de unas semanas vemos que este sistema no está funcionando, con gusto consideraremos otras opciones. Así mismo, por favor sea paciente en la fila de autos y ubíquese en la parte Este del edificio si es que está esperando estudiantes; de esta manera todos podrán salir rápido  y seguros.  Les pido también que no lleguen tan temprano ya que esto ocasiona que usted obstruya la entrada a otros padres que tienen que recoger a sus hijos antes. Un agradecimiento enorme al preescolar de CDI y al preescolar de SWP por su apoyo con su nuevo procedimiento.  Observamos que los tiempos de llegada y salida son un poco más rápidos cada día.
Diciembre ya casi se ha terminado; faltan menos de dos semanas para nuestras vacaciones de invierno. Deseo a todos ustedes una Navidad y Año Nuevo maravillosos. Por favor acompáñenos a nuestro programa de cánticos decembrinos, organizado por los maestros de música y  de educación física. Tendremos dos presentaciones (8:45 & 10:00 a.m.).  Venga y disfrute canciones de Navidad con nuestros alumnos. Dado a que estas presentaciones darán inicio antes de que las clases de preescolar PM comiencen, invitamos a estos padres  a que  traigan a sus hijos a cualquiera de los shows para que canten con nosotros. Disfruten de sus dos semanas de vacaciones y nos vemos el martes, 3 de enero.
