Dear Families,  

Thank you for supporting an amazing Book Week! We dressed as our favorite characters, participated in an interactive read-aloud, watched a play by Special Area Teachers, spent time reading with friends, and found other ways to bring reading to life. We have a very exciting list of events to close the year and hope you can join! 

Looking forward to seeing you during the last two weeks of school,


Congratulations to the following artists for winning the 2022’s Golden Gecko Awards Book Cover Challenge!!!

Fifth grade transition to Middle School

Middle School will hold a transition activity for all 5th graders on two separate dates next week, Tuesday, May 31, and Thursday, June 2. Fifth graders will be welcomed by Mr. Menendez, Ms. Urrutia, Mr. Rose, Ms. Zuniga, Ms. Vargas, and Mr. Chandler. Fifth-grade students will be invited to visit different classes and share time with 6th-grade students and teachers.

The main purpose of the transition activity is to introduce 5th graders to Middle School classes, students, teachers, and the community in general. Fifth-grade students will be able to ask questions and share time with 6th graders who will welcome them and provide some advice for next year.

Sixth graders will write welcome letters to 5th graders to tell them about what they experienced during their own transition to Middle School, and to provide some advice, expertise, and guidance about what to expect, and how to feel prepared when they arrive at Middle School next school year.
