Scholastic Book Fair News

Our Scholastic Book Fair begins TODAY!!

We know we have a lot of parents that want to help, volunteer, and donate to our school. We are excited to announce we now have a virtual Teacher Wish list for your classrooms and library! If you aren't familiar with how a Wish List works, in the past at the Scholastic Book Fair we have had teachers and our library pick books they want to add to their classroom library and library for our students to enjoy. As parents came through the book fair, they would pick a book...or two...and purchase them from the Teacher Wish List and donate them back to the classroom. If you are not able to visit the book fair in person, we have taken this list virtual. If you would be so kind, you can now click on the link of the teacher and/or library and donate. Teachers and the library can take this to the Book Fair and purchase books to add immediately to their classroom and/or library. The students get so excited!

We really appreciate all your support as donations to classroom libraries and the school library are for all our students. 😊

While on the site to donate, you can also set up your student for an account, it's a quick, safe, cashless way for your student to shop the fair. Here's a video on how it works:


And here's a list of our teachers and library, just click on the link and donate today. Thank you for all your support!

Press Release: CUSD Announces Expansion Of Transitional Kindergarten Classes Next School Year

CUSD Announces Expansion Of Transitional Kindergarten Classes Next School Year

Coronado Unified School District is excited to announce the expansion of Transitional Kindergarten (TK) beginning in the 2022-23 school year. TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten experience. Four-year-olds who turn five between September 2 and February 2 are eligible to enroll in TK this coming school year.

Half-day (3 hour) TK classes, with a 12:1 student teacher ratio, will be offered at both Village and Silver Strand Elementary Schools. Currently the classes are scheduled for the morning but depending on enrollment could also be offered in the afternoon.

Based on research indicating that an early and strong foundation for learning matters in long term student success, California recently passed legislation expanding funding for early childhood education. TK is still optional but provides an additional option for parents and serves as a stepping stone between preschool and kindergarten.

Parents and guardians interested in learning more about the program should complete a pre-registration survey, by March 4, 2022 to receive additional information/updates about student enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year. Link to Survey: https://bit.ly/3gKHEAU

For Village Students Grades 3, 4 and 5- Please see CAASPP Testing information below

Village CAASPP Testing dates will be sent out in mid-March. Usually Village tests students in grades 3rd-5th during the month of May. More information to come!

Bikes and E-Bikes:

Bikes and E-Bikes: Please remind your student to follow all traffic laws while riding their bikes to school. Many students with E-bikes are running stop signs, going extremely fast, and on many occasions have almost hit a pedestrian or caused an accident. Our top priority is to keep our students and community safe at all times.
