UPCOMING MARIGOLD EVENTS
December 4 - January 12: Form 10 submission period
December 25 - January 5: Winter break
2018-2019 FORM 10s
All students living in the Marigold attendance area funnel to Bidwell Jr High. If your 5th grade student is here on a Form 10, please don't assume they will go to Bidwell. The approved Form 10 ends when they leave elementary school. If you are not sure which Jr High your child will attend based on your address, we are happy to help you in the office. If you desire a different Jr High, you must submit a new Form 10 no later than January 12, 2018.

Holiday Letter to Parents
Are you planning a family trip for the holidays? As you think about your arrangements, we want to stress the importance of sending your child to school every day possible. Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday as families squeeze in a few more vacation days. It's time to break that cycle. We know that just a few missed days here and there, even if they're excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Put simply, too many absences at any age can affect a student's chances for academic success and eventually for graduation.
We recognize that holidays are an important time for reconnecting with families far away. The costs of plane tickets often influence when you want to travel. But keep in mind the costs to your children's education if they miss too much school - and the message you will be sending about the importance of attendance. Even if you've got a homework packet from the teacher, it doesn't make up for the interaction and learning that happens in the classroom. Our teachers will be teaching, and out students will be learning, right up until vacation starts and the first day back. You can help us convey that message. This holiday season, give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance.

All children will be accepted, but some may have to attend a school other than the one serving their residence area.
The following are required to register a child: (1) proof of date of birth is required (birth certificate, baptismal certificate, or other legal proof), (2) two forms verifying proof of residency, and (3) written immunization record from a physician, nurse, or health department. Children must be immunized for MMR - measles, mumps and rubella (German measles), polio, DTaP - diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, and Varicella (chicken pox) prior to school entry.
