Honor a Veteran!

Friday, November 5th is the final day to submit a donation of $5 per flag to honor a special veteran in your life. Students will put up their flags on our fence at the front of the school on Monday, 11/8. Extra forms are available in the office.

From the Counselor:

Welcome to our new Counselor, Ms. Coria! She is at our school M-W every week.

Parents, CLICK HERE for information on an upcoming webinar on helping your child manage anxiety.

Also, our OUSD Counseling Department has created a website for staff, students, and families with many great resources. You can access it here: Elementary Counseling Website

Parent Portal Update

As OUSD works to use less paper communication, the Parent Portal will be even more important for families to use. On 10/29 at noon, there were additional documents added to the Data Confirmation process for parents to review. As a result, when you enter your child's Portal account, you will need to do Data Confirmation again. You will not need to turn any paperwork in to us, just review the documents and confirm the information.

Please let the office know if you have any questions.


As a reminder, Parent Portal will provide you access to your child's report card at the end of the trimester.

LCAP Survey

Please take a few minutes to complete the Orange Unified LCAP survey. CLICK HERE to complete the survey.

We would love your insight on what is going great & what could be improved at our school & within our district.

PE Survey
