At the end of November, please collect the individual orange attendance paw charts. A separate accounting sheet will be boxed for you to record the number of students who had perfect attendance for November. It will be collected and turned in to redeem indivudial student prizes in December.

6. Campus Closed November 24-28:

BUCKET FILLERS: Big Thanks to the following. . .

  • Many thanks to Adriana, Patty, Joaquin, Steven, and Gloria for helping with the nachos sales!
  • Thank you, Ms. Spraggins for organizing and running the Book Fair.
  • Thank you Patty, for supporting the book fair with parent volunteers.
  • Thank you, teachers, for being prepared and awarding our students during the Awards Programs.

    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!

    Positive Behavior Support:
    Please work on your rules, consequences and rewards. Children must be clear and understand exactly what the expectations are.
