Band information - 5th & 6th graders

Thank you to all who were able to come to Instrument Rental Night on Monday! It was great to meet you and to see your students' eagerness to begin playing in our QES band classes!

For those who plan to use a school instrument, please fill out the PUSD Instrument Use Agreement, below. Cost is free. Instruments are older, but playable.

Link: https://forms.gle/sgJnfmNUaARJD7Di8

--> Once your student has attended his or her first band class, where we will discuss and practice proper instrument care, and you have filled out the form above, your student will be able to begin bringing his or her instrument home for personal practice. Please do all you can to help them remember to bring their instruments to school on Mondays for band!

Important--For anyone whose child has not yet gotten an instrument, you can either call Blue Note (the phone number and a price list is on the attached flyer) to arrange for a rental--I can pick it up and deliver it to the school for your child to pick up--or fill out an Instrument Rental Agreement (purple link, above) and I will distribute an instrument to your child on Monday.

--> Important to remember: I recommend that you not buy an instrument from a large box store that doesn't specialize in musical instruments! These instruments look great, but they tend to not work, do not sound good, and tend to fall apart easily.

--> If you have an old instrument in a closet for them to use, please remember to have it serviced by a music repair shop right away, to make sure it still plays well (often costs $200+) so your student doesn't get frustrated by an instrument that leaks or has other problems.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please feel free to email Jane Brown, our QES music teacher, at jbrown@pcoe.k12.ca.us .

October 8, 2021:

Hello QES Families:

Parent-teacher conferences were a success this week! It was an excellent time to connect, and some of our students even led their meetings. We value the opportunity to work together to help our students grow.

This week we experienced growth on the playground. Our students did a phenomenal job waiting patiently to play as well as help clean up. We also saw students making great choices to play safely and kindly with each other.

Per the Parent Square message on Friday, free COVID-19 testing will be offered next week on our campuses. If you would like your child to participate, please go to https://my.primary.health/l/plumasusd.

Next week the Pioneer campus will be learning about transportation safety. We will have a bus on campus to help us understand bus riding expectations. Rachel will send out more information on pick-up, drop-off, and bus safety.

The end of the day can be hectic in an elementary school. Help us keep it calm and orderly by ensuring your child and/or their teacher know how they are getting home each day. If your student is a regular bus rider, please call the office when they are not riding the bus. If you need to make a change, please do so by 1:00 pm. This will give us time to communicate and accommodate your request. Thank you for your understanding as we work together for the safety of our children

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us:

Lara Hollister, Principal; lhollister@pcoe.k12.ca.us

Rachel Molsee, Vice Principal; rmolsee@pcoe.k12.ca.us

Forms to complete

Hello QES families! Please login to your parent portal to update your students' data and yearly authorizations. If you haven't already downloaded the parent square app, please do so as soon as possible so that you receive all of the latest information and communications from our Principal and Teachers!

Free Crisis Counseling available for California residents

It’s been a tough last year and a half for many in our county. The Covid 19 pandemic has brought hardship and uncertainty to our community, and the added stress of several catastrophic wildfires in the past two summers has added another layer of difficulty.

This double crisis has put tremendous burdens on all of us, and many people have no choice but to struggle alone. This is why California State has started a productive new partnership with BeWellLine, a partnership that will bring care to the people who need it most.

The BeWellLine mission is to provide evidence-based, free-of-charge care to people who might not have access to it otherwise. This is a free service, available to anyone, without regard to existing insurance coverage or qualification. Everyone in the state of California is entitled to reach out and get the help they need, receive advice and counseling, and share their story.

If you’ve been struggling through the pandemic alone or feel like you need greater guidance and support, get in touch with the BeWellLine by calling (855) 838-6910 or visiting bewellline.com or calhopeconnect.org today to arrange a counseling session or learn more about how they can help you.The counseling services are available by phone, online chat, and video conferencing, and are free.
