Message from Mrs. Post….
Our teachers are working on the application for the California Distinguished Award and while it is time consuming, it is an important process for our school to experience. The application is due at the end of November and as you well know, November is quite a busy month on the school calendar. I would like to thank our teachers who have volunteered to be part of the writing teams and thank all the teachers who have so willingly given their time at after school meetings. It’s never easy to be out of the classroom, and the teachers have asked to be out only during the afternoon hours to cause less of an impact to their classes. We are also fortunate to have our favorite substitute teachers available this month to help us out. So, keep us in your thoughts and we hope that we will be successful in our endeavors!
Report cards will be sent home with your child this Friday afternoon, November 18th. As I mentioned to students at Monday broadcast, report cards are not to be opened and shared in front of the school. These reports are private and should be shared between parent and student. Too often, siblings find themselves comparing each other’s grades and hurt feelings are a result. I hope that you will take individual time with each child to review his/her report card.
Remember to celebrate your child’s successes and set goals for those areas that show a need to improve.
We look forward to seeing you at Marston’s tonight. The PTA has scheduled an all day restaurant day with Marston’s (located in the Bridgeport Marketplace). We hope to see you there! We also extend a special thank you to Mr. and Mrs. McCardy, owners of Marston’s, for their donation of certificates for our students and teachers.
Next Tuesday, our sixth graders welcome Valencia High students to the Tesoro campus. The students will be working with our sixth graders in a program called STRIVE (Student Teaching Respect Inclusion Values and Equality). This program was developed to create a cultural awareness and acceptance of each other’s differences. Included in the presentation will be a discussion of what to do in situations that might include peer pressure, bullying, and prejudice. We are fortunate that Valencia High is once again able to bring this special workshop to our students! Thank you to the students and their teachers at Valencia High School.
Please remember to call the office before 9:00 a.m. the morning that your student will be absent from school. The State of California requires a specific reason, "not feeling well" or "sick" are not acceptable. Please let us know if your child has a cold, is vomiting, is out of town, etc.
SPECIAL EDUCATION COMMUNITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE (CAC)
Your CAC seeks to join together parents, educators, lawmakers, service providers and others in our community with the goal of improving and protecting the education of our children with special needs. Your CAC is here to inform, empower, and support you.
We invite you to join us in our quest to help others in our community. The following workshop will be held at Bridgeport Elementary, 23670 Newhall Ranch Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91355:
Monday, February 6, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
Help Your Child Learn Social Skills
There is Child Care and Interpreter Services at the meetings.
Parents - Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 16th, 8:30 a.m., our new Superintendent Dr. Lucid and the new Chief Business Officer, Cynthia Shieh will be attending our PTA meeting. Come and learn more about our school district. Ask questions and show your support of Tesoro del Valle!
Volunteers needed - the yearbook needs volunteers during school events! Participation is easy as you attend our school events, please share and take a few extra pictures for yearbook consideration.
The yearbook committee’s goal is to involve as many Tesoro families to share the wonderful pictures captured during school events. Every picture shared will contribute to the creation of a diverse representation of the children in the yearbook. Not to mention the excitement from the kids and parents alike looking for pictures they took in the yearbook.
If you have pictures to share, please leave them in the PTA Yearbook mailbox and email us at Tesoro.firstname.lastname@example.org If you have questions, or are interested in joining the committee and participate at events as time allows, we have CDs for you to transfer files.
Thank you and looking forward to a fun year,
Christina & Louis Polio
