Did Your Student Forget Something?

In an effort to help your child become an independent student, we have some suggestions.

Each morning check with your student: Do they have their lunch or lunch money, all homework and SIGNED papers in their backpack and does everyone know their after school plans? Every student will forget something, but each year there are some students who forget repeatedly. Parents call in daily and/or drop the forgotten items in the office and want us to send notes to their student during class times. These notes interrupt valuable classroom instruction time.

Please let your student know about checking in the office when they realize they have forgotten something. Students may check at recess or during lunch. Together we can help our students become responsible and reduce the large number of instructional interruptions.

Where do the Lost and Found donations go?

Four times a year the lost and found gets cleared out of unclaimed clothing and other items. We donate to the Sun Street Centers who provide the most comprehensive and effective alcohol and drug abuse prevention, intervention, education, treatment and recovery services in Monterey and San Benito Counties. Our donations of many jackets and sweatshirts help these families and children in their program.

Want to be a Chaperone or a Volunteer?

We love to have parents help out at school and join us on our field trips. Before you go, make sure you have been fingerprinted through the District office. It is district policy that all parent volunteers be fingerprinted and cleared before working in the room or chaperoning a trip. Pick up a packet in the office or click here.

Contact Angela Lippert or Kimberly Ortiz at the District Office for more information.
