Serrano Elementary

Week Seventeen: January 11th

A Weekly Staff Bulletin

Hello Eagles!


WELCOME BACK and HAPPY 2016! I hope you all had an amazing three week break with family and friends and know that, although a few more days would be awesome, we are rejuvenated to take on January and the rest of the year. I was in the office last week and felt a little anxiety when looking at the calendar that consumes the rest of the year - BOY, do we have a ton going on! If you are in the same boat and feeling a tad overwhelmed, I encourage you to just take it day by day and week by week and please let me know how I can support.


This bulletin details the upcoming week, I encourage you to read through it and let me know if you have any questions.


Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning.


Best,

Ashley

Physical Education Standards

Teachers - Very Important


If you plan on utilizing some time throughout the week to fulfill your 100 weekly minutes of PE, please make sure you are leading activities that are in line with the State of California PE Standards and if you have questions or would like suggestions about activities, please see Mrs. McLeary. It is very important that the safety of kids is a top priority in any physical education activity. Thank you for your help in this endeavor.
