Cordelia Hills Update

1/28/2019

Message from the Principal

Happy Monday everyone! We are off and running this morning. Thanks for your smiles and positive notes everyday. I know that I am blessed to work with you and your children everyday and I know my staff believes the same thing.


Some mid-year reminders:


Cordelia HIlls does adhere to District policy regarding food in school. Please avoid bringing food for parties/celebrations during the school day. While we appreciate the treats just like the kids, we want to make sure we are maintaining an environment that is healthy for all children and that we consistently follow the policies that are laid out.


Our homework policy can be found here. Lastly, ATTENDANCE matters. We strive to have your student here everyday. We know that sometimes that isn't possible but please continue to make sure they are here every moment that is possible. We love having them on campus everyday!


Some pertinent reminders from last week:


1. Independent Study: Please remember, all office IS requests must go through Mrs. Lissick in the main office. Her email is HelenL@fsusd.org and must be made two weeks in advance of any requested time away from school. Please note that teachers approve or deny a request before it comes back to the main office. It is really important that work that is given is completed. Failure to do most or all of the work will result in denial of future requests. WE GREATLY appreciate your cooperation.


2. MAP Testing: MAP testing is coming up. Remember, this is our district benchmark for grades 1-5 (ELA and Math) It gives us an idea of how our school, classes, and students are doing. We are looking for all students to grow. Classes will begin as early as February 4th. We appreciate your support in getting students to school, on-time, fed, and well-rested.


***************


District Calendar: The 2019-2020 calendar is out. Check it out here. Please do your best to plan vacations, appointments, times away from school around the school calendar. We need every student here everyday that they are healthy.

A Save the Date Flyer is here


We look forward to the event and evening and hope you can participate! Please note that a family can represent culture in many ways. It doesn't have to be based in a country/region and we are open to working with families to best represent the cultural traditions of as many families as possible.

Keep an eye out

Recently, we have had some bottles thrown over the fence and some garbage being dumped onto campus. Please be on the lookout for unusual behavior around our school, especially in off-hours. If you see something, please don't hesitate to contact me via text or email or to alert the local authorities. We appreciate your support (especially MR. AMOS!)
