Safety and Security: Change in End of Day Entrance to Campus Procedure
At the end of the day, right before middle school and elementary school pick up times begin, our security guard will only be allowing enough cars onto campus that can fit without blocking the left turn lane to go to the front of the schools. This will enable parents of middle and high school students, who need to get on campus to pick up/drop kids off for after school activities during this time. Going forward, if these parents pull up to the guard building, and let him know they are here for another purpose besides elementary pick up, (like a middle or high school activity) he will wave them through so that they can get to their appropriate school instead of getting stuck with the cars waiting for the elementary pick up.
Cars will be asked to wait outside of the gate (the majority of them) to allow access for buses and parents dropping off students onto campus for after school activities. Once car line begins, they will be able to enter the campus.
Thank you for your cooperation.

A Message from Mrs. Gamboa...
Many students are reading to reach a milestone in the SSYRA Jr. (K-2) and SSYRA (3-5) Reading Program.
The deadline to read for a milestone is Monday, March 23, 2020 by 4:00 p.m. Note: They must have read at least 8 books to attend the Election Party and all 15 to earn a seat on the Battle of the Books along with earning 70% or higher on the AR Test.
For the 3-5 SSYRA books, we will continue to give out the dog tags through May 15, or until our supply is depleted.
Please make sure if your child is reading to reach a milestone of 3, 8, 12, or 15, that they advise their classroom teacher allowing their reading log card to be updated.
Thank you for encouraging your child to reach for the highest summit of READING!

The K-2 Rainbow Reading Program is in full swing now. All students received the red reading log at the beginning of the school year. As you and your child read the books listed on the sheet and it is returned during their library visit, they will spin for a prize and receive the next colored log.
The goal is for students to read through the colors of a rainbow and reach "PURPLE". Then they will join us during our Purple People Party in May. During this party, students will wear purple, and eat purple foods, play games, and enjoy time with other readers.
If you need another red sheet, please send an email and include the student and his or her teacher's name to the request. Rhonda.Gamboa@CapeCharterSchools.org This is a fun time for your child to explore books in varying genres from your home and public library. Also, they can search for books in the school library during their Specials visit.
Thank you for supporting your child's education.
