BUCKET FILLERS: Big Thanks to the following. . .

  • Thank you Ms. Arriaga for organizing the Chuck E Cheese Fundraiser.
  • Thank you teachers, who attended the Fundraiser.

    ELD Instruction:
    ELD Instruction should be 45-60 minutes daily depending on ELD levels.

    All attendance notes need to be cleared timely. If you are not able to clear an absence because three days have past then please send up the notice to the office to clearitimmediately. Whenyou hold on to them and send them up in bulk it takes too much time for office staff to complete and keep updated. Send them up as you get them. Thanks!
