Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
Our students have been celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by experiencing cultural activities within their specials classes. It is our hope that students are enjoying celebrating their culture or experiencing traditions of a culture they are not as familiar with!
With the change in seasons, we have beautiful fall colors and cooler weather. Please be sure to send your child to school with a jacket; we will be going outside for recess as much as possible.
As we approach the end of the quarter, please encourage your student to do their best work. They've been making wonderful progress already this year!

Junior High Specials
Please be sure to follow our traffic flow map and signage around the school grounds. Please do not block crosswalks or stop in areas that are not designated as student drop off areas. We appreciate everyone's cooperation, as this will allow for traffic flow in and out to go much more smoothly. Thank you in advance.
Door W3 is the current main entrance to access the school office. There is a buzzer located next to the door that alerts Ms. Ortega.
24th Street west of 13th will be closed periodically throughout the day without notice due to our construction project. You will need to head south on 13th Ave.

We strongly encourage walking to school when possible.

Breakfast & Lunch
Menus have changed at the last minute. Once we are aware of a menu change, we will post the updated menu on our website and on ClassDojo.
Quest has started posting menus to https://fdmealplanner.com Please feel free to access this site to view menu updates, nutritional information, or translations. This will be available beginning with the October menu, and you can search "Komarek" to find our school-specific menu. Please note that this menu and site is provided and updated by Quest, and not Komarek.
***For the week of 10/11 and beyond, please reference the menus on ClassDojo and the Komarek Webpage**
Please ensure that school iPads and Chromebooks are charged and ready to go for the next day of school. These devices are important for your student's learning, and having a charged device helps your student's day start smoothly. Thank you in advance!
Please note that headphones are on the school supply list for all students in grades K-8. These headphones ensure that our students can focus when using their devices. If you have not sent headphones to school with your student, please do so when possible. If you are unable to obtain headphones for your student, please contact your student's homeroom teacher or Patricia Boguslaw (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you!
