BOBCAT NOTES 1/16/2017

 

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

LIFESKILLS FOCUS for January 4-20

TK-1st

  • Responsibility:  To be accountable for your actions

2nd-5th

  • Responsibility:  To be accountable for your actions

  • Organization:  To plan, arrange and implement in an orderly way

 

SPELLING BEE: The Camino Pablo 3rd-5th Camino Pablo Spelling Bee is on February 3rd at 8:30. Last week each 3rd-5th class held a classroom bee. Each participating classroom puts forward two contestants and one alternate. Between now and the bee there will be two Friday practice sessions during lunch and one dress rehearsal on January 27th. The winner of the bee will move on to the county competition in March.

 

CELEBRATE MORAGA EDUCATION FOUNDATION’S (MEF) BIRTHDAY!!: MEF is celebrating it’s 35th anniversary this year with an "Under the City Lights" Auction & Dinner Dance to be held at the Claremont on Saturday, March 11, 2017.  Tickets go on sale January 27. Flyers will come home with your child(ren) on Friday, January 20.  

FYI - MEF are still looking for auction donations.  If you, or anyone you know, would like to donate an item, please contact carolmcalpin@comcast.net.  

 

CP's Annual Read-a-thon is just around the corner. The focus of this endeavor is reading for fun!  Students will record their reading time during the duration of the Read-A-Thon and collect pledges from family members and close neighbors.  All students are encouraged to participate with or without pledges. The goal is 100% participation- raising money is secondary. We will also be holding a Book Drive to benefit a local non-profit literacy program.

 

REMINDER: No Students on Monday, January 23 due to staff professional development.

 

ASEP Registration is Open

ASEP Registration is now open, January 3rd - 20th!  Register early before classes fill up.  Visit the CP ASEP page for class descriptions and registration instructions.

HELP WANTED:

 

Get Involved in 2017! Submitted by Bruce Burns, MSD Superintendent

Looking for a New Year’s Resolution that will make a difference for both your child and the entire school community?  Consider joining a district-level committee.  There are a variety of opportunities to lend your voice to make a long-lasting impact.  Parent input is needed on all of the following committees:

 

Cultural Proficiency Committee:  This new MSD committee will explore what it means to be a “culturally proficient school” and will outline our district’s strengths and areas for improvement in making sure our schools provide equal access to all students.  Actions will be developed to make sure students from all backgrounds feel included and valued.

 

Coordinating Council: This long-standing MSD committee has evolved from reviewing supplemental district programs to developing and overseeing the implementation of the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan), the District’s road map to the future.  In other words, this committee decides the overarching direction and focus for our schools.

 

School Safety Committee: This committee has had a great influence state-wide on the way safety concerns (specifically child-abuse reporting) are handled at the school level.  Currently, the Safety Committee develops and monitors MSD’s Comprehensive Student Safety Plan, which includes issues such as emergency preparedness, digital citizenship and campus security.

 

Student Wellness:  This committee was established in the fall of 2016 and is charged with ensuring that schools are in compliance with our district’s “Wellness” board policy.  Anticipated work of this committee will include how we address the physical, social, and emotional health of our students.

If you have an interest in any of the above topics, please contact your school principal or Camille Santi, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent (925-377-4101), to find out more!  Our schools’ success depends on the involvement and collaboration of all stakeholders.  Please join our efforts!
