I was struck by this proverb this weekend. We all have students in our class who will do anything for our attention. It also reminds me of the importance of relationships with our students and families. Finding the time in our day to make those connections can be a challenge. I am going to pick one student who in "burning down the classroom/school" and try a different approach. Not sure what that change is yet! But it is worth a try!

Purple Pinkie Day is April 17, 2018 at lunch time!!

ICE Information

There has been a lot of concern recently about ICE agents operating in the North Bay Area. The district office has put together a few resources for you in case we have any visits in our school. ICE Resources Folder

Gun Safety Meeting

A community group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America has invited any interested staff to a community meeting on March 7th at 5:30 pm at Art Escape in Boyes Hot Springs. Their group is interested in working "to make a difference and help keep our kids safe." If you are interested in attending, you would be welcome.


The conversation on bullying is a national and local topic. The term bullying is often used for many situations. We are working to educate and inform students and parents on bullying and what they can do to help. We will be holding an informational meeting in March.


Our PTO and ELAC have been working together to plan events for families and students. They are an impressive group of parents committed to our school. Please take a moment to thank them when you see them around.

Maribel Gonzalez, Steph Clark, Flor Canela, Gabby Aguilera, Gero Bataz, Tiff Briggs, Leslie Benzon and Erin Weaver.
