Hello Pershing Families!


October is "Making Good Decisions" month at Pershing, where we spend extra time discussing how we show respect to others and to ourselves as we make good decisions every day. Across our nation, October is Bullying Prevention month, and the month ends with Red Ribbon week. We want our students to practice empathy and kindness, as well as learn how to make healthy decisions for their own physical well-being. The Pershing teachers and I will periodically share updates with families regarding the theme for this month so that you can also continue the conversation at home, as well.


Join the Pershing staff for our Family Science Night this Thursday, October 14th with Sierra Nevada Journeys!

We have room for 40 families max at each session, so sign-up today! To reserve a spot for your family, please click the Google Form and complete it today. You will get a confirmation email with the Zoom link information by Wednesday afternoon. Any needed materials will be sent home in a small kit with your child Thursday (items needed are common household items).

Progress Reports will be ready to view on the Parent Portal on October 11th. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have questions or concerns. If you have not signed into the Parent Portal to update your emergency contact information this school year, please do so as soon as possible. If you need assistance accessing your child's information on the Parent Portal, please contact our school office.


COVID19 Rapid Antigen Testing is now available at our school for students and staff. Typically testing is available starting at 7:45a.m. daily before school. If your child needs a COVID19 test in order to return to school, please first register at www.sanjuan.edu/preregister, select the District Office as the location, then call our office to sign-up and notify us. If your child needs to isolate or quarantine for 5 days or more, you may also request Short Term Independent Studies. Please call our office at 916-979-8076 if you have questions. Please always contact us if your child will be out from school. Thank you!


Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership! If you have any questions, please reach out to our office at 916-979-8076.


Sincerely,


Mrs. Kendra Shelton
