Your child will be bringing home the Jog-a-Thon flyer, Pledge envelope and a re-useable water bottle to use during the Jog-a-Thon and beyond. This is our largest fundraiser of the year! If we reach our goal of raising $60,000 for our school, there will be a school wide Ice Cream Party on Friday, April 17th!!!
Tomorrow is our Jog-a-Thon Kick Off assembly where we will review the proper safety protocols with students and show them the cool prizes they can earn. We can easily reach our goal if everyone does their part. Please help by supporting your child in collecting pledges for our amazing school. Take advantage of fundraising online. Your child can email friends and family to ask for their support. Online donations are super convenient for both your child and the donor. The Jog-A-Thon envelope has instructions to make online donation easy.
Read Across America is coming on Monday!
Students are allowed to dress up as their favorite literary character. (No fake weapons) You can check the blog for costume ideas: http://readacrossamerica.wordpress.com
This is a wonderful opportunity to remind children of the importance of reading, as well as, inspire life-long readers.
As Dr. Seuss said, “You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
All 3rd through 5th grade students will be participating in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) this Spring. This new, computer based assessment will replace the paper and pencil version of the test. These online tests known as the CAASPP, will replace the STAR testing program. Our testing schedule is:
- 5th Grade – May 4th through May 15th
- 4th Grade – May 18th through May 29th
- 3rd Grade – May 18th through May 29th
All grade levels will be tested in both Language Arts and Math. Please feel free to contact Principal Duddy if you have any questions about the CAASPP assessment program.
You can help us reach our goal and make our earnings check big by sending in your Box Tops this Friday. Kids can turn them into the office or their teachers or just bring them to me, Michelle Foley at the lunch tables on Friday, February 27th. If you’d like to help out, please contact Michelle Foley @ firstname.lastname@example.org It’s fun and easy! If you have Box Tops you still need to turn in, here are some optional tips that’ll make the submission process easier: Bundle your Box Tops in groups of 10 or 50 using a sealable bag or envelope
Tape or glue Box Tops on a collection sheet, available at BTFE.com or use the one sent home with your child with his/her weekly newsletter.
Once we send in all our Box Tops, our school will receive a check from Box Tops for Education™ and can use this cash to buy the things we need. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Michelle Foley @ 949-293-3988. Thanks for your help!
