Hard to believe we're heading into the homestretch! There is still lots to do in the next few weeks! 3rd graders have finished their SBAC testing but all students are now working on their MAP assessments. We began the reading portion last Friday, and will finish reading and complete the math this week. Please try to have your child well rested, well fed, and on time this week! 


Open House will be Thursday evening, May 23. There will be a fundraising dinner at 5:00 and classrooms will be open from 6-7:00. I hope many of you can join us! It's a great opportunity for your child to share some of the work they've been doing this year.


3rd graders are going on a field trip to The Santa Cruz Mission this Thursday, the 23rd. I will notify drivers as to the time they need to be at school.


*2nd graders book reports are due on Monday. 3rd graders Ohlone projects are due on Wednesday. Aside from these, homework will be winding down! Just encourage your child to read nightly and keep practicing their facts! :)

A Note About Green Folders: These will be sent home every Wednesday. Green folders will contain completed work and are to be looked through, emptied, and  returned the following day. I encourage you to go through and discuss returned work with your child. It's a great way for you to get a feeling for what your child is doing in the classroom.
