Parent Educator Inservice

At Vista Oaks, we set time aside each semester to learn and grow as teachers. But we recognize that the program offered here at Vista Oaks Charter School is not just a standard program. Here, it is our parent educators who deliver daily instruction to our students. We value all you do to ensure that each student reaches his or her potential. This will be our first training opportunity offered to our parent educators, as part of our ongoing commitment to support you in all you do.

April 1, 2016 9:30am Oak Room at Byron Learning Center

Our focus will be on the following:

What does a complete language arts program look like?

Spelling, vocabulary, reading, writing, comprehension, grammar, handwriting—do we need all of it and how can it fit together?

Come for an opportunity to learn, to collaborate with other parent educators for support and encouragement, and for coffee and snacks!

Also, here's a link to the practice test! It'd be great for you to sit with your child and take the practice test together so you can both see what you can do to better prepare for it: http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html Log in as a guest (leave the boxes blank and click sign in) and choose a grade level to take the test.

Come support our student Liam Dewitt who is performing in the symphony!


You get a FREE 2 page layout in the yearbook, and it will only appear in YOUR yearbook. Please talk to Charmaine if you would like details on how to do this.

If you have pictures of your kids attending a school function, or playing at the school, or a picture with their teacher, feel free to email it to Charmaine for a possible entry into the yearbook. Sooner rather than later will give you a better chance of getting it into the book. Staff, we'd love to have any pictures that you've taken in class as well!
