Tiger Tid-Bits

  • A HUGE thank you to Hollie for holding down the fort while we were at the Title I Conference. We are so lucky to be able to leave our school in such good hands. Also, thank you to all who stepped in to help her and us while were were away
  • We have really seen a marked difference in students' behaviors in the hallways and MPR. Thank you for taking the time to use the new ways to recognize students, it has made a difference.
  • In 5th grade, when asked to explain their thinking about Mrs. Harris's 100th day shirt they could do so!
  • Thank you to our office staff for their patience with parents as they come to register their new kindergartners! It is always extra work for our front office ladies and we appreciate it!
  • Holy COW!!!! Family Math Night for K/1 was unbelievable! We had so many parents and students playing math games together. They were having so much fun, one kid was trying to "trick" their parents on a game, it was fun!
  • Thank you Silas for hosting the BizTown parent volunteer meeting (and Meg and Cindy for being there.)


  • Julie Brown and PE staff have painted a yellow line on the grass. Please help explain to students that the left side of the grass is for PE only and not to be played on while PE is going on.
  • For wheel the next two weeks, we would like you to bring your pictures that you have taken so far this year. We will spend a bit of time learning how to upload for the yearbook.
  • Career Day-We still need speakers! Please help us out and send me names of anyone who may be able to join us.
  • If you read this come by for a golden ticket in Stephanie's office to be entered into a drawing for a gift card.
  • Ana Hallman's community liaison days will change for the remainder of this school year. She will work in Kinder Monday-Wednesday and be available for you on Thursdays and Fridays.
  • CSUSM Soccer will start again in two weeks on Fridays.
