Can you believe it? March is here! I hope everyone enjoyed their long Presidents' weekend in February. It was nice to recharge and spend a little extra time with loved ones. Now we are back to the business of providing a wonderful educational experience for our Roadrunner scholars. The second trimester will end on March 11 and we have many happenings this month. Most importantly, we are finishing all second-trimester assessments. Report cards will be sent home on March 18. Lastly, our fifth-grade students will have a very busy March; they will be participating in Family Life classes, Physical Fitness Testing, and California Healthy Kids Survey.
As always, our Roadrunner scholars are the focus of our partnership between home and school. We strive for students, staff, and educational partners to work together to maximize each student's potential. We celebrate the diversity in our school and see it as an asset that will help empower our students to be as prepared as possible for the challenges our ever-changing world can bring.
May March bring everyone much love, health, productivity, and success!

Are you concerned about your child's social-emotional or academic progress?
If the answer is yes, follow these steps:
- Make sure your child gets 10-11 hours of sleep each night.
- Make sure your child receives nutritious meals daily.
- Make sure your child is at school on time every day.
- Have a consistent homework routine.
- Talk to your child. What does your child feel he/she is struggling with?
- Talk to your child's teacher. Does the teacher also have concerns?
- Talk to the counselor or the assistant principal.
- Consider a medical evaluation. This step can help rule out any medical issues that could affect school success (vision, hearing, allergies, asthma, ADD, etc.)
Make sure your student is reading at home EVERY DAY!
Why is reading so important?
Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Here’s how you can get your child off to a great start.
Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.
What difference can I make as a parent?
You can make a huge difference! Parents are the most important educators in a child’s life – even more important than their teachers – and it’s never too early to start reading together.
Even before they're born, babies learn to recognise their parents' voices. Reading to your baby from birth, even for just a few minutes a day, gives them the comfort of hearing your voice and increases their exposure to language.
