Principal’s Message- May 31, 2019

Although this week was short, it was filled with many fun events for staff and students. There was a great turn out today for Walk/Bike to School Day.  If your child lived too far to walk/bike to school, consider taking a walk or bike ride over the weekend. As summer approaches, now is a great time to talk to your child about bike safety.

The past two days, our students celebrated Nihon Day. They took a virtual reality trip to Mt. Fuji, listened to informative presentations from our 6th grade dual language student leaders, wrote post cards, and made crafts. Thank you to all of our students in Japanese Dance Club and Gassho Club who shared their talents at our kick off assembly, our 6th grade dual language students, and Mrs. Tufexis & Mrs. Abe for making this day a huge success for all!

Tuesday, June 4th is Field Day (rain date is June 5th). Please be sure your child has sunblock on before they leave for school and is dressed for the weather.  Students can bring their own sunblock to school for personal use throughout the day. Students will be playing in the field and should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers. Plan to send your child with a water bottle labeled with their name, a hat and sunglasses, if needed.

Please mark your calendars, our last day for student attendance is a half day (11:40 dismissal) on Thursday, June 6th.


PTA is looking for volunteers to support events for the 2019 – 2020 school year.  Please consider supporting one or more of our many PTA sponsored events.  Pleases contact the school if you are interested in helping out.
