Student of the Week/Month
  My student of the week is Samantha Pasillas. 

She is an excellent student and citizen.  She  always tries her best and earns good grades.  When she comes to school, she is always ready to learn and participate in class discussions and help others when needed.  I am proud of her because she always shows her SPOTS.  She always does what is expected even without being told.  She is reliable and responsible.   I am proud of her, I believe in her, and I know she will continue to do a great job because she is all in, all the time!

October birthdays: (If you want to celebrate your child's birthday at school, we celebrate the last 30 minutes of the day and you need to notify the teacher 24 hours in advance.  cupcakes and juice boxes only)


AR-Accelerated​ Reader
Students are required to earn 20 AR points per trimester as part of their grade. They have time every day in class to take AR tests either on the chrome books. Check with your student about their reading level. They must read books within their range unless they get prior approval from the teacher.  They have a recipe for success which tells them how many points they should have each week.  It is in their binder.
