Mountain Avenue Thursday Update
Arrive to School by 8:18
Being on time is so important because our instructional day begins sharply at 8:20. We want to maximize the learning for your children and have no minutes of learning lost.
Behavior Expectations at School
As we settle into our school year, we have started to see some student behaviors that we would like to address. In general, students are doing a fabulous job of following directions and being safe on campus. However, we would like your assistance in helping students remember our BEARS behavior expectations.
B - Be Kind
E - Encourage Others
A - Accept Responsibility
R - Respect others and be
S - Safe
Please take a moment to have a conversation with your child about what our BEARS Expectations really mean. On campus, our teaches are having similar conversations. We will be actively sharing positive behavior expectations with all students so that they are well supported in problem solving among peers.

For Parents/Guardians of 4th - 6th Grade Students
Glendale Unified School District is collaborating with Panorama Education to develop a research-based survey for Grades 4-12 to gather actionable data on socioemotional learning at school sites. After careful review, the district chose the six topics below for the survey:
• Sense of belonging
• Social awareness
• Emotion regulation
• Growth mindset
The survey will be administered twice this year: once in the fall (September 27 – October 8, 2021) once in the spring (February 28 – March 11, 2022) to assess progress and growth.
Student-level data will be available to schools to better support specific student needs. The data will be used to inform the planning and interventions to ensure all students feel safe, welcome, and successful at their schools.
You may request to review the survey at your student’s school. If you do not want your student(s) to take the survey, you may opt out by sending a letter to his/her school. Please include your student’s full name, grade, and teacher or counselor name and be sure to sign the letter.
Please review this parent letter with all the info regarding the panorama survey parent/guardian letter .
