Happy Summer!  Here are some reminders for Fall.

Instructional Minutes/Bell Schedule

Next school year instructional minutes will be extended to 323 minutes per day for students in grades 1-3 to match that of grades 4-5.  This was ratified by the teachers’ union and will be in effect for the 2016-17 school year.  The bell schedule for next year will be as follows:

                Kindergarten Early Birds:  8:05- 11:28

                Kindergarten Later Gators: 10:10-1:28

                Grades 1-5: 8:00-2:23 (M, Tu, Th, F)

                Grades 1-5: 8:00-1:09 (Wed)  EVERY WEDNESDAY IS AN EARLY OUT DAY

Grades 1&2

In addition to the increase of instructional minutes, there will be class size reduction in both 1st and 2nd grades, with the maximum class size being 26 students.  The target enrollment for 1st and 2nd grade is 24 students.

Grades 3-5

Class sizes in grades 3-5 will remain at a target of 32 students per class.  For planning purposes, all 3-5 grade teachers are given planning days (2 per year) to accommodate their larger class sizes.  In addition, students receive one hour per week of music instruction by district specialists, which gives classroom teachers time to plan and collaborate with their grade level colleagues each week.

Kinder Orientation

Kindergarten students will have the opportunity to meet their teachers and tour our school on Thursday, August 25th at 10:00 a.m.  Class lists will be posted at that time.  Families should receive a letter the second week in August stating whether their child is enrolled in the early or late session.

Back to School Night

Class lists for grades 1-5 will be posted on Thursday, August 25th at 4:30 p.m.  Teachers will meet and greet families in the courtyard outside the MPR at 5:00 p.m.  Back to School Night presentations will be held in classrooms on Thursday, August 25th from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.  Parents are welcome to bring class donations at that time and sign up for Fall Conferences as well.   Holding Back to School Night prior to the first day of school proved helpful this year and we are happy to continue with this new tradition.  Note: August 25 is the only Back to School Night presentation offered.

#P4C: Paws for the Cause

I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our families who joined Paws for the Cause this past year. 

I want to encourage all families to participate in this one time fund raiser for the 2016-17 school year. 

Please look for the Flat Rocky that will be sent home for summer: it is part of our #P4C campaign.  I can’t wait to see all the places Rocky visits this summer! Send us your photos and follow on instagram @treprincipal

 

Lastly, I wish to thank all our parents and students for working together with our amazing teachers for such a “golden” year of learning for all our Cool Coyote Scholars!

See you in September!

Warm Regards, 
Mrs. Barquer

Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Responsible.

 
Gentle Reminders:
* Instruction begins at 8:00 a.m. so leave plenty of time to get in the front green gates.  Drop off begins at 7:40 a.m. 
 
*Parents who pick up students early-even 5 minutes matter! Please plan doctor appointments or after school events for non-school time.  Our students deserve every minute of their learning time.  End of the day wrap up is just as important as the beginning of the day start.  Thank you.

*Every Wednesday is an early out dismissal at 1:05.
 
*Safety First.  There is no parking on Keller or Robinson Dr. Do not pull to the side of these streets to unload or make U-Turns as both are very unsafe.  Please park at the Sports Park and walk-in or plan on arriving between 7:30-7:40 for the quickest morning drop off. Kindergarten students need to be dropped off at the Keller gate.  All other students should go in through the green gates, not the office.
