ACCREDITATION PROCESS – SURVEYS FOR PARENTS- Below you will find the link that will take you to the corresponding survey that you need to complete. Please take some time from your busy schedule to complete the survey that will provide valuable information towards the accreditation process and therefore, school improvement.

A Spanish version of the survey for parents is available in this message; however the survey needs to be completed in English. The Spanish version will help parents complete the English version as it is an exact copy of the survey.
Parent Survey:

Surveys will be available Monday, March 2 – Friday, March 20.

STUDENT SURVEYS – This week our students will be completing the AdvancEd surveys required for the accreditation process in school. A special schedule has been made so that each grade will go to the computer lab with a teacher so students can take the survey.

      END OF THE THIRD QUARTER AND CONFERENCES– Please              take note that this Thursday, March 12 marks the end of the third            quarter. Teachers will be calling for Parent-Teacher conferences on          Monday, March 16. These conferences are on a need basis.                        However, if you would like a conference, and one has not been                  called for by a teacher, please contact the school to set an                      appointment for the afternoon of Friday, March 20.

      LOST AND FOUND – If your son or daughter has lost a sweater,           Tupperware, or water bottle, please send him or her to the office to          check out the Lost and Found boxes. There are many items that                need to be claimed by their owners as soon as possible.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB NEWS - Scholastic Book Club leaflets were given out last week. This is an optional activity offered by the school, because we know you want to motivate your child to read at home.  With your purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem more books for the benefit of your children in our school.  The due date to purchase the books online is March 20. The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date.
