Cordelia Hills Update

9/28/2018

Message from the Principal

It was a joy to see everyone dressed up yesterday for picture day! It was also a well attended day with only 11 absences school wide. Today wraps up our attendance awareness month. We appreciate your support for positive attendance and encourage you to help us to make sure that our school meets the goal of 97% attendance!


An update on our third grade class. We are still in the process of having our new teachers move from Anna Kyle to Cordelia Hills. They can't move until the position is filled at AK. We are still working on finalizing the students who will move and will notify parents once we are done. We appreciate your patience and understanding. WE think this is going to be great for the selected students and for all students at the grade. Class size will drop to 20-22/per class.


Have a great weekend. Try to make it out to the SoFitCity Run at Solano College if you have a chance this Sunday. More information here: https://www.sofitcity.com/event-details

Progress Reports

Progress reports for all grades are being finalized. I am reading them all now and they will be published for view in Illuminate by the District starting Friday, October 5th. If you don't have access to Illuminate, please reach out to the main office. Most students were sent home with an Illuminate Code to access the system. Approximately, 50 of our students didn't have codes and we are working to fix the bug to allow parents access. Please know you will all be able to see progress reports!

Pick-Up and Drop-Off

WE had a small fender bender this week in front of the school. Please slow down, please look both ways and over your shoulder and please use your blinker!


Just some OTHER friendly reminders:


-The Yellow Zone on the street in front of the school is for pick up and drop off only. Remember, to pull forward and stay with your car.

-Please slow down in front of the school and neighborhood.

-Be mindful of children and parents crossing in the middle of the street.

-Please share the sidewalk with our many students who walk, bike and skateboard.

-Be a great neighbor and community member please!

Computer/GAMING, Before School

Room B-10 (Symanski) is open to all students for gaming and computing starting at 7:55 each morning. It stays open until students are dismissed for morning PE. Students who are coming should enter through the red door next to the pull up gate.
