Weekly Updates from Mrs. Cervantes - May 16, 2021
Good afternoon, Coyote Families, and Happy Sunday to you!
Oh, this rainy weather! As much as I love an occasional rainy day, I am not a fan of a full week of rain on our last week of school with LOTS of things planned. Eeek! But, as we always manage to do, we pivot as needed. :-)
In this newsletter, you'll find important information about Silly Hat Day a a school-wide reward, recognition of our Lighthouse Families for 20-21, Kindness Monday, final yearbook sales, summer reading run, registration information for families needing assistance with backpacks/supplies for 21-22, 5th Grade Celebration updates, and calendar reminders. As always, there are also links to join PTA and purchase spirit wear as well as links to school breakfast and lunch menus.
Have a great week!
Mrs. Padgett Cervantes
School-Wide Istation Reading Goal
Coyotes! This year we set a school-wide goal for our monthly Istation Reading scores. The goal was to have at least 85% Kinder through 5th Grade students, In-Person AND Virtual, make 6 months of growth from October to April. Congratulations! We met our goal, and had 89% of Kinder-5th Graders make 6 months of growth on their Reading Istation scores. To celebrate, we will have a school-wide SILLY HAT DAY on Wednesday, May 19th. Wear your silly and crazy hats to school or your virtual class and celebrate making our school wide goal. We are so proud of all your hard work this year!
Celebrating Our 20-21 CRE Lighthouse Families
There is still time to purchase a yearbook in the office! They are $25! We gladly accept cash or check (payable to Coyote Ridge ES)! Get one before they are all gone!
From the Librarian
Hello CRE families! With summer approaching I would like to let you know about all the fun summer activities happening in our area public libraries! Please check out the file attached to learn more about summer activities and reading challenges in our public libraries as well as ours! That’s right! I have challenged all students to complete a Summer Reading Bingo Board (no need to print it out, I passed out a paper copy)! This is full of fun reading activities and if they bring it back to me during the first week of school completed, I will have a prize for them!!!! Please support our summer reading by encouraging your lovelies to read throughout the summer, visit the public libraries and make reading a fun and exciting activity! As I tell my own children, lifelong readers read for fun but a little incentive everyone once in a while is amazing!

In need of backpack/school supplies?
Parents, if you need assistance with school supplies for your child, you can register at this link to request a backpack and school supplies free of charge for the upcoming school year 2021-2022. At this time, the backpacks will be delivered to our campus prior to the beginning of school. This is a great resource, no questions asked and a huge money saver! Deadline to register is June 30th!
