Principal's Rocket Orbiter

September 14 - October 5

It has been a great opening to the school year! Classrooms have been developing expectations for Reading and Writing Workshop as well as being collaborative partners. In math, classrooms have begun counting collections and number talks to build student mathematical reasoning. We have also worked on being respectful, responsible and building relationships in and out of the classroom.

Student safety is our priority at Red Hill. Thank you for working with the staff as we implement the new parking lot procedures. This is because we have 480 students exiting school at once. Please remember to drive 5 mph in the parking lot. We have seen drivers going quickly through the parking lot which puts our students in danger either getting into the car or crossing the street. Please follow staff directions and pull all the way forward when dropping off or picking up. Please remember to only park in designated stalls or on the street. Please do not park cars in or make your own parking space where it is not designated.

Tustin Unified School District has partnered with Toshiba to highlight students who model exemplary attendance. Toshiba has generously donated a Toshiba ChromeBook2 and Toshiba Encore 10 Tablet to each school. Students who maintain perfect daily attendance will have the chance to win one of items from Toshiba. The winners will be selected through a drawing.

Our School Site Council is looking for nominations from parents who are interested in supporting our school. There are four open positions. School Site Council is a group of staff and parents who reflect and advise on programs happening at Red Hill. No experience is needed, just the willingness to be reflective for our students. Please submit a nomination form. If you are in need of one, please contact the office. We typically meet 4 to 5 times a year. Our first meeting is rescheduled to Monday, September 24.
