Happy Spring! Welcome to the 3rd trimester of the school year and a busy one indeed.
Thank you to our families who came out to hear the CAASPP parent ed evening last Thursday. The presentation is on our website for all to review. Many thanks to Mrs. Salazar who shared the expectations of the new assessment for our students and to the LO students who showed parents how they will access the assessment on-line. We really appreciate the forthsight and 8 year planning of our Ed Fund to provide the technology (laptops, Ipads) to our school to ensure that our students are prepared and have all the tools they need for the new assessment. Our Site Council provides the financial support for the site licences we need for our students to practice and learn from several online curriculums we use as well as the release time for our teachers to plan and attend in-service training. Our PTA continuously supports our efforts with parent ed evenings, assemblies, equipment and community events. The support of our stakeholders is certainly what adds to Live Oak’s success.
Congratulations to 5th grader Venky in Mrs. Vaughns class. He was in the top 10 of the county spelling bee this weekend. Venky placed 7th out of 120 students and was the youngest speller in the top 10. Way to go Venky. We are very proud of your accomplishment.
We enjoyed seeing our families at parent-teacher conferences last week. Partnering with teachers to understand and see how and what our students are learning is important to us. Parents should have received report cards during conferences or in the Thursday folder. If you have not received your report card, please check in with your student’s teacher.
Children should arrive to school by 7:45. We ask that parents plan accordingly as we know morning traffic is busy. When students arrive, they are asked to line up and not play on the playground. There is no supervision prior to 15 minutes before school begins. Children are to leave tennis balls at home. If they find any on the way to school, we ask that they leave them as we do not use tennis balls in PE or at recess.
Have a great week!
