Quote of the Week
As a reminder, the virtual clubs do not meet the 2nd week of each month due to teacher meetings and in-services, therefore there are no clubs this week.
Be sure to check out the Community Connections section in the Cabrillo Point Academy Family Resource Website (an email went out to all families from Beehively explaining how to log-in). There you will find a How-to video, the Club Hub with all the virtual clubs we offer, as well as a spreadsheet version of the Club Hub. You can always ask your HST for details as well.
If you have any questions, please contact your HST or Gina Garland: firstname.lastname@example.org

Virtual Field Trips
How to Think Like a Homeschooler (Even When You’re Not One)
"Years ago I heard someone say, “Even if you work for a company, think of yourself as self-employed — because at the end of the day, we’re all self-employed. We all work for ourselves first and foremost.”
I could make the same argument about homeschooling. As parents, we all homeschool our kids — it’s a matter of where and how we choose to outsource. Ultimately, we’re still tasked with the charge of helping our kids learn what they need to learn.
I know some devoted homeschool families who would argue with me that traditional schooling methods isn’t homeschooling, and this isn’t the time or place for that debate — because right now, while things are nuts, we’re all doing the best we can, and most all of our schooling options are some form of partial solutions.
This fall, and maybe this next spring, too, we’re all homeschooling, even if our kids go off to a different building to learn. Here are a few things I’ve learned about adopting a homeschooling mindset, no matter how you “do” school (because our family has done just about every method of education available)."

Rockstar students at Cabrillo Point Academy
Do you have a copy of your student’s Individualized Graduation Plan (IGP)? If not, ask your HST for it! It’s a great resource for understanding your student’s path to graduation.
Our high school student should be enrolled in a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 40 credits each semester. Your student will need special approval to take more than 40 credits. Keep in mind that a student should take an average of 25 credits to graduate with the 200 credits needed.
Academic Integrity is the moral code or ethical policy of academia. This includes values such as avoidance of cheating or plagiarism; maintenance of academic standards; honesty and rigor in academic work. This is a great resource for reviewing what plagiarism is with your student.
Student Support - Math Intervention
Click here for videos, tutorials, ideas, and more for all parents and their students.
Does your student need math intervention?
Step 1: Make sure they are using an evidence based curriculum (Math U See, Right Start Math, Touch Math, Teaching Textbooks, or CLICK HERE for many more adopted curriculums). Work in this curriculum daily for one hour minimum.
Step 2: Use your instructional planning amounts for a twice weekly tutor.
Step 3: What else can I suggest? Try the free programs included in the OSP. Or add OSP a la carte programs like My Math Academy, Shmoop, or Prodigy.
Step 4: If you’ve tried this for 6-10 weeks and your student is still struggling, let’s schedule a Student Study Team appointment with our school success coordinator and see what other options are available.
Thank you for those of you who joined the ELAC/DELAC Meeting.
Here is a slideshow of topics covered at the meeting.
19/20 ELPAC Scores- are available under testing on your Parent Portal! If your student was unable to complete the test due to COVID school closure, there may be an opportunity to complete the ELPAC this fall.
Reclassification--If your child has an overall score of 4 on the ELPAC and no more than one 2 in the four domains of reading, writing, listening, and speaking he/she could qualify to be reclassified from EL to Reclassified Fluent English Proficient (RFEP). If your child qualifies, your HST will contact you with more details within the next 2 weeks.
ELD Instruction- If your child is classified as EL, they are required to participate in 30 minutes of ELD (English Language Development) instruction everyday. Brainpop EL is available for Free to all of our EL students. Contact your HST for more information on how to enroll your child.
- Contact your HST and ask them to change your email address that is listed in Pathways.
- Your HST will contact our SAA to request that the parent's email address be changed in Pathways.
- Once the parent email address has been updated in Pathways, then the email address will be updated in Beehively. Please note this will take 2-3 weeks to update.

Do you have enrichment or tech orders that were entered by the last day of school in the Spring, but that weren’t processed by July 1st? Please rest assured that we are working on a solution that will allow the EOS to automatically deduct order totals from the correct school year. Please stay tuned, as more information is coming!
Due to COVID, BookShark orders are typically being processed by the vendor within 10 - 12 days after orders are processed in the EOS.
Please note that Timberdoodle Kindergarten curriculum kits are currently on backorder.
Our payment method was recently updated to credit card for Amazon. When you submit orders for this vendor, you will be prompted to select the school credit card that’s on file (the full card number is not viewable by anyone). Please feel free to select that payment method . . . HSTs will still need to approve all orders, and they will still need to be processed by Enrichment staff.
In-person services opened again in Orange County on September 23rd (in-person services not yet open in Riverside or Imperial Counties).
If virtual services are being requested, please be sure to write “virtual” or “online” within each order. This will help ensure that orders are processed as quickly as possible!
These previously recorded webinars are available to view. Join us as we present a showcase of popular (school approved and secular) curriculum to our community. Families also have the opportunity to learn more about some popular curriculum options directly from the vendors!
