minimum days

Minimum days are to ensure that all district assessments are completed and turned in ON TIME. Many of you have already completed your district assessments. Please extend your grade level planning time by using the minimum day hour. I will ask that you spend the first hour analyzing your data from our reading cycle and then complete your weekly planning template. Maryam and I will come around to help analyze data. Also Yvonne will be available to help finish assessments. Please check in with her and make sure to communicate with parents when their child will need to stay after school.

report card will be due to me December 1st

field trip lunches

There is a new fieldtrip form now being used by the district. The form includes an order form for bag lunches. Once the order has been placed it goes to the district where then it will be given to Silvia. This is the only way bag lunches can be made, as she will not have the necessary food on hand to make bag lunches. This process takes about a month. If you intend to have bag lunches on a field trip you must submit this form in a timely manner.

absences

All of you can sign up to have access to the sub system, smart finder. You need to go to the ousd website and enter the intranet. First time users will need to sign up at 510 3799303. This will allow you to register and create a password. As a new procedure please request a substitute yourself however, I will still need to be notified as soon as you know you will be out sick. For personal days I will still need to be notified 2 weeks in advance. If you have any issues accessing the sub system please se Ms. Lara.

Spanish Science resources

Teachers can sign up for Foss web to access resources which include the text online. The Spanish versions are included in what can be accessed. Below is the link to a powerpoint that shows you step by step how to sign up. I will also share it with you in the drive.

Rose Boos

PEC has decided to make a huge switch of their teachers. Unfortunately, Rose will no longer be at Esperanza to provide support for our students. She will continue to be at KDA and will go to Brookfield. While we are sorry to see her go lets all wish her well while she transitions to her new school. Mathew Alvarez will be our new support. We also will have a switch with our paraprofessional. Lets wish Mrs. Martinelli well in her new role and welcome Maria Curiel.
