A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Greetings Parents, Guardians, and School Community!

Happy New Year! As we embark on 2023, please take time to reflect on your student’s educational experience so far. Has your child been reading daily?  Is your child performing to the best of his/her ability?  The new year provides an opportunity to re-focus on what has been achieved and what still needs to be accomplished.

We have many resources available for our families to continue the educational experience at home.  Let us know what would be most helpful to you.  Student and family input is critical to our efforts toward continuous communication and academic improvement.  We have some exciting plans for the new year!  PC Ramos can assist you daily, please stop by our Family Welcome Center.   Also, our Attendance Incentive Program has been promising with decreased numbers in student absences and tardiness. In closing, I wish you all a healthy and prosperous new year.  I look forward to working with you for our children.

 

Sincerely,

Principal Cruz

                                        

#KINDNESS in a World where you can be anything be kind!                                                                

 

Self-discipline is one of the keys to living to your full potential. If you can be disciplined with your daily actions you can achieve anything that you set your mind to.

Tips for At-Home Learning

At-home learning will look different than a typical school day. The amount of time your child should be expected to engage in learning activities will vary by age and grade level. The expectations below are guidelines. If your child is not able to complete at-home learning assignments within the time periods recommended below, contact your child's teacher to discuss a modified assignment load. 

  • Make sure your child has a quiet place to work (ideally a desk or table) and the school supplies they need. Try to remove distractions like the television or other technology not needed for learning. 
  • For grades K-2, expect your child to work up to 2 hours per day, broken up into sessions of no more than 30 minutes. 
  • For grades 3-5, expect your child to work up to 4 hours per day, broken up into sessions of no more than one hour. 
  • Your child may benefit from focusing on a limited number of subjects for a limited number of time each day. Try to take a 2-5 minutes breather or move around between subjects/assignments.
