Message from the principal

Dear families,

We are on our last quarter of our school year! This is the time when we ask students to reflect on their goals and the progress they made so far. Please take a few minutes to check with your students about this and encourage them to try their best effort as we prepare for our State testing The Smarter Balanced Assessment for grades 3rd-6th.

We will begin with the assessments the third week in April. This is an important time to review with students the importance of healthy eating and sleeping to be ready for their assessment. You can also access additional resources at home to practice for the tests. Here is the link with resources:

For students in grades Kindergarten through second grade, this is also a great opportunity to check with your teacher regarding your student progress. You should be able to access ParentVue to get information about student grades and assignments.

Here are a couple of links with resources about common core standards per grade level:

Please do not hesitate to contact your classroom teacher if you have any additional questions.

Happy April!

Parent Information

*Parents please remind students to return the weekend backpack if you receive one. We have a box located in the office for students to drop off. This is important because we have other families who use the same backpack the following week. This is how we prevent from using paper bags.

*Pick up-Please contact the office at least 30 minutes before dismissal time to arrange a pick up. Students are use to their daily routine and if they do not receive a pass they will go to their bus or walk home.

*Lunch- If you visit to have lunch with your student, you must report to the office first. You have to sign in our guest computer and wear a visitor pass at all times. You can sit with your student in our round table we have in our cafeteria.

*The office hours are 7:15- 3:15 pm. Parents please take in mind that school doors open at 7:15 am, you can drop off students at this time. Don't forget to remind students that the bell rings at 7:45 am. After this time it's consider a tardy and students need to check in the office.

Portland Children's Museum

On March 15th all three kindergarten classes went on a field trip to the Portland Children’s Museum. The students enjoyed a day of water exploration, engineering and building, dramatic play, and creative time with clay to name just a few of the activities. Some delighted in being on stage singing and dancing in the spotlight, other’s preferred experimenting with motion sending car down ramps. The kindergarten teachers reported that with the help of many parent volunteers they were able to give the students a terrific day of hands on learning and fun.

Attendance Matters

Attendance is very important for all of our students to succeed every day. Please ensure your child goes to bed early and has plenty of time to get ready in the morning. Our bell rings at 7:45, therefore being on time is am important life skill to establish early on, and being late to school may lead to poor attendance. If a student is late or absent, he or she misses important instruction, let's work together to ensure all of our students are on time and in school every day. Please remember to call our school if your child will be absent and try to schedule appointments after school if possible.The following is an excused absence: student illness, bereavement, serious illness in the family, religious instruction, inclement weather, family emergencies, legal or court appointments requiring the student's attendance. Start building this healthy habit of going to school on time and be in school every day for your child to do well in school and in their future in high school, college, and work.
