Announcements and Events

 
2015-2016 Class Placement
Assigning students to classes for a new school year is a complex process, and a number of factors are considered when a child’s placement is determined. 
· Academic Abilities
· Special Needs
· Class Size
· Boy/Girl 
· Social/Behavioral Needs
· English Language Learners
Parent input forms will be available in the school office for the period: April 21-April 30th.  Written input is considered as ONE of the factors used in determining a classroom assignment for your child. Please understand that parent input is not a ‘teacher request’. NO forms will be accepted after the deadline of April 30th.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 
Dear Hirsch Families,
       
All public schools are required to prepare and distribute a SARC (School Accountability Report Card). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators.  SARCs are prepared with information from the previous school year.  The 2013-14 SARCs can be obtained from the school website and district website at https://www.tracy.k12.ca.us/AboutTUSD/SitePages/SARC.aspx.   Paper copies will be made available, upon request.
 
It’s hard to believe-that April is upon us.  Only 2 months left of school!  I'd like to take this opportunity to let all of you know that I am not returning to Hirsch next year.  This is a personal decision of mine and I am happy to be moving forward in this marvelous journey called 'life'!  I have had a wonderful experience here at Hirsch, and am indebted to all of the families that have been so kind and supportive toward me.  I will miss your wonderful children! I am very happy though to announce that next year's principal will be Cindy Sasser; who is presently the principal at Jacobson, and who once served the Hirsch community as the Vice Principal. This month Smarter Balance Testing for grades 3-5 continues; by now your child’s teacher will have already informed you of their testing schedule.  Mark your calendars for Spring Break!  April 3rd – April 12th ; schools resumes April 13th -and remember that is an Early Release Monday.  Our PTO is hosting a Family Dance on April 24th and the teachers are planning our Annual Ice Cream Social for the evening of April 17th-free ice cream!!  It’s just a lovely way to say ‘thank you’ to all of our students and parents.
Thank you for ordering!  The yearbooks will be delivered to your child the last week of school.
 Please know that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns-or if you have an idea to make our school a better, more fun place for our children. 
Happy Easter!
 
Sincerely,
 Andrea Silva, Principal
