UNIFORM CHECK- We need your help!

We have noticed that some of our students are coming to school out of uniform. The number of students out of uniform is increasing, and we need to address this. We are asking everyone to send students to the office in the morning if they are not wearing the appropriate uniform. If you have students in need, we can help through counseling services. If you have any questions e-mail Ms. Totsuka or Mrs. Martinez. We appreciate your support in this matter.

The district requires all students in prekindergarten through grade eight wear a school uniform unless the parent or guardian has filed an objection as provided in FNCA (LEGAL) and (REGULATION)

Plan Ahead - Valentine Class Parties

This is the week that grade levels discuss and plan for the last party of the year. Make sure to send home notes to parents this week and include the names of the students in your class, if your students will be passing out Valentine's Day cards.

Ms. Hernandez,

I want to let you know how impressed I am with the teachers on this campus and the professionalism they show with our hearing impaired students. I have been bringing equipment such as hearing aids, FM attachments, and hearing assistive technology out to your school for about 6 years. Every time I walk into a classroom the teachers are equipped with the FM, have made sure that it is charged, handed it off between each other if a student has multiple teachers, and so forth. This is not the norm at every school. Even though it is an ARD requirement, it is not always treated as such. I want to thank all of the teachers who have in the past had a hearing impaired student or in the future will have one in their classroom. I know that you are being observed at different parts of the week from your administrators and it would not be something that they would notice. I know that you are doing it because it is important to you that your student has every possible opportunity to hear information that their peers can hear throughout the day.

Thank you very much.
