OUR TIGER BLAST! January 30, 2022

Parkridge's Bi-Monthly Newsletter

Ms. Adame's Assistant Principal's Message

Dear Parkridge Families,

I hope this Tiger Blast finds you and your loved ones enjoying health, prosperity, and Joy!


As we begin the month of February and we find ourselves surrounded by images of hearts and love, I would like to focus on the idea of RELATIONSHIPS.


Our Parkridge Learning Community is comprised of amazing Staff, Teachers, Families, Community Members, and students. We have been given an opportunity to work together, so that All of our students are successful. WE All want our students to feel safe, confident, connected, and engaged. The truth is that We All want the same things for ourselves and our loved ones.


As we develop and strengthen those relationships, daily Attendance is crucial. Each time your child is absent, he or she misses opportunities to grow and develop academically, socially, and emotionally. It is through these daily interactions that your student will feel connected to peers, staff, and the Parkridge Learning Community. Also, when your children are not present others are not able to learn from them. When Our Tigers are absent they are missed!


We continue to work on ways to improve all relationships so that students benefit. Whether it be training for staff to better communicate expectations to students or meetings with families, the goal is that we listen to each other and learn how to make Parkridge a better place for us All. We are better together!



So for this month of February, I ask that we focus on the importance of relationships between home and school. Please remember our school motto:

BELIEVE IN ME, BELIEVE IN YOU, BELIEVE IN US... WE ARE PARKRIDGE!




With gratitude,

Suzanne Elizarrarás Adame , Assistant Principal

Counselor's Corner

January is a great time to reflect on the past year. It's a time to say goodbye to the challenges you faced in 2021 and hello to positives that lie ahead! Over the next few weeks, take some time to ask your child what they will take from 2021? What did they learn? What would they change? Extend that conversation and ask them what goals or wishes they have for 2022? Share your goals and wishes for the new year with them as well! Small conversations go a long way. It's important to keep the lines of communication between you and your children open. Wishing everyone a great year ahead!

Congrats to Parkridge's Spelling Bee Champion!!

Congratulations to 4th grader Ivan Magaña for winning our school's Spelling Bee. He will represent Parkridge at the district level Spelling Bee. Best of luck, we are cheering for you!!

100 MILE CLUB

Your orders are here! Students will start receiving their T-shirts as they complete their first 25 mile goal. If you ordered a shirt and have not yet received it keep motivating your child to complete their laps and get those miles in!

We had fun on Friday showing off our 100 Mile Club spirit by wearing our new shirts!

If you missed the chance to place an order for shirts/ incentives you will have a second chance to do so sometime in February, be on the lookout for that flyer coming home soon.


Thank you for all your support, get out there and "Go for the Gold!!"

All students have been issued District devices and this technology is intended to support student learning. In order to use the technology at an optimal level, it is fundamental that students are caring for their Chromebooks and meeting expectations of proper usage and maintenance. This includes fully charging the device prior to coming to school. Each device (which includes the charger) is assigned to a student , just like a school textbook. If the device and charger are lost or damaged it will be treated like a damaged or lost textbook or library book, which means fines will be charged. Please ensure that your student is responsible with their Chromebooks and chargers, as they are intended to support their learning.

If you have any questions or concerns,

please contact Ms. Adame, Assistant Principal , sadame@cnusd.k12.ca.us



Here is a commonly asked question:

Do families need to sign the Mobile Device Check-out agreement form?

No for the 2021-22 school year any Chromebook/hotspot check-outs are covered under the policy AR 8560. The policy is referenced in the Parent/Student handbook which parents/student acknowledge and confirm was read at the time of online registration.

In July of 2021 a section was also added to ParentConnect for parents to confirm that they have read the policy as part of online registration. Any parents that already completed online registration will not need to go back to confirm the policy. Parents that go into ParentConnect to make changes or with students that are new to the district will need to confirm the policy.
