Hello Armada Elementary Parents & Students!


We have a lot of exciting virtual activities for the month of October with anti-bullying, kindness, pink cancer awareness, and College Week. We have posted the virtual participation information for our students in our social media accounts and also in the student Admin Google Classroom. We love it when our students participate, so please check out all the fun virtual activities.


Thank you, Armada Families!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Arreola Proud Armada Elementary Principal mearreola@mvusd.net

Distance Learning Attendance

Parents, as always school attendance is very important and now more than ever students attending their virtual synchronous instruction with Zoom is paramount. Please encourage your child to attend all scheduled daily virtual instructional sessions and complete assignments in Google Classroom. We will be addressing attendance in our October 23, 2020, virtual ELAC meeting and October 16, 2020, virtual Coffee Chat with Principal meetings.

Armada Admin Google Classroom

Students and parents reminder, Armada Administrators now have a Google Classroom for all our Armada students! When your child logs on to the Google Classroom app from Clever, they should be seeing a “new” Google Classroom icon on their page aside from their teachers and our Counselor's Classroom. The title is “2020-21 Armada Elementary School Announcements & Information.” To view the classroom, just click the icon and accept the classroom. The class code is jlp5ayt. We will be using the Google Classroom as another form of communication with our Armada families to stay connected. Armada principal and assistant principals will be posting messages to our students weekly. We encourage our students to log on to the Admin Google Classroom to see this week's posts about anti-bullying, kindness activities, College & Career Week, and hear Mrs. Vega’s read-aloud of Mahalia Mouse Goes to College by John Lithgow.
