Riding the Wave of Excellence!
October 1, 2023
Dear Mission Families,
Thank you parents for attending our first Student of the Month Assembly this week. It is always a great feeling to celebrate our students' accomplishments.
Did you know that Monday is National Custodian Day? Please encourage students to say "thank you" to our custodians for all the work they do to maintain our school safe and clean!
On Friday, our 2nd grade students extended their learning as the Oceanside Fire Department provided tips on fire safety prevention and how the department helps our community. Thank you, Oceanside Fire Department!
Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled from Friday, October 13 to Friday, October 20. If you haven't yet scheduled a time to meet with your child's teacher, please do so as soon as possible. You may send a note with your child or contact the office for help. Our office phone number is (760) 966-8700.
Do you have a change in address, phone number, or contacts information? It is important that our office have your most updated contact information so please help us by promptly providing any changes or updates.
I encourage you to read the entire newsletter. You'll find out about the great events coming up this week such as our Wednesday clubs. All clubs at Mission Elementary are based on student interest and are completely voluntary. Please also take time to watch the video offered by Mr. S. in which he offers strategies to address anxiety.
Panorama Survey Window 1: Starting this week our 3rd-5th Grade students will be participating in answering questions via a survey. Panorama Student Survey gathers feedback from students about their school experiences. This feedback provides important data in order to help us determine the most appropriate resources and social emotional supports for our students.
