Lunchtime Read Alouds:

Did you ever wake up to one of those days where everything is a problem? You have 10 things to do, but only 30 minutes until your bus leaves. Is there enough time? You have 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants. Can you make 1 good outfit? Then you start to wonder: Why does everything have to be such a problem? Why do 2 apples always have to be added to 5 oranges? Why do 4 kids always have to divide 12 marbles? Why can't you just keep 10 cookies without someone taking 3 away? Why? Because you're the victim of a Math Curse. That's why. But don't despair. This is one girl's story of how that curse can be broken.

Monday (K - 2nd grade)

Join us for Sea Squirt Days 

Mondays, 9:30 - 1:30!

Bring a snack and lunch and something for Share Time after lunch.

Please walk your student in and pick them up at the classroom.





5/21: I am so proud of all of our students!  Everyone completed several books during this Bookmaking Group and most students read their work to an audience of their peers and did a fantastic job!  I hope everyone keeps writing over the summer!  See you in August!

5/14: Everyone finished their books!  I will finish binding them this week and they will be ready to share at our last class day on 5/21.  This had been a fantastic group of writers and I hope everyone will keep writing during the summer!


MATH with Deb:

Counting, Games,and Problem Solving!

Today we die our own jumping olympics, running through our pillow jumping, hula hoop diving, and hurdle leaping routines as many times as the dice roll decided. We'll do more next week! We did downhill courses this week. Everyone won a gold medal!

Share is every Monday after lunch.  We encourage kids to bring something from home that represents something they've done or learned. They get to share with their friends, and we hope to inspire others to say, "I want to try that!" (rather than, "I want to buy that!"). Help your kids choose something to bring!

Drop Off/Pick up Policy: Just as a reminder, for safety reasons, student drop off/pick up is in the Green Acres parking area (go straight instead of turning into District Office/Tierra Pacifica/ Preschool lot). If you need to see that your student is getting to class or need to come on campus, please park in parking spaces available in either lot. (District Office or Green Acres) 


Also, we ask that you honor the drop off and pick up times for each day. If you have special circumstances please check with Sue in advance. The staff uses the time before and after school to set up, clean up and have meetings with families. If you arrive to school early, please plan to stay with your child. Thank you for your cooperation.
