Cloverdale Elementary News
Week Of January 11,2021
Here's to healthy and peaceful 2021! I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. I hope you were able to enjoy your family and friends in a safe way. I also hope that you have been able to use this time productively on things that you like and that you are rested and recharged for the second half of our school year. Please keep up your positivity and work hard to increase your learning and improve your grades as best as you can. Understand that knowledge is power and something that is yours and cannot be taken away.
As we continue to endure through the covid 19 pandemic and its outcomes, please continue to follow safety protocols and remind others to do the same. The faster we can overcome covid 19 as a community, the faster we can return to a sense of normalcy. Remember to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Wear your mask and stay at home as much as possible.
During these times of hardship and sad news from events occurring in our capitol the last few days, it is important to not be afraid and instead be a light of positivity. Be a role model for others with your kindness and understanding.
You may have read or heard the news from our Superintendent's update that we will not be returning physically to our schools for instruction this school year due to covid 19. We have been preparing for this possibility and we are ready to continue to offer you a high quality education through distance learning.
STAR students of the week - Congratulations to Bryanneth Lopez from Ms. Bates's class and Jayden Lundy from Ms. Gallegos's class for being selected as our Cloverdale STAR students of the week. We have many other nominees for this special award and I will read their names in the morning announcements.
This month we are recognizing a teacher and a classified educator for the month of January. I will post their names here soon.
Please know that we will not be serving lunches for the time being. We will let you know if anything changes.
In this weeks SEL lessons with Ms. Dahlman you will be learning about different strategies for problem solving. This is a very important life skill and I hope you will learn something valuable from these lessons.
At Cloverdale we strive to be Leaders by Example. As I mention to our students during announcements, this means that we always try to do the right thing even when no one is looking.
As part of our school's Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS), we also learn to ROAR. This is a matrix that exemplifies our core values of being Respectful, Organized, Accountable, and Responsible.
Our goal is to be college ready once we graduate from High School and that starts today!
