The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done. -Jean Piaget

 

LIFESKILLS FOCUS for January 23-February 9

TK-1st

  • Caring: To feel and show concern for others

2nd-3rd

  • Caring 
  • Common Sense: To use good judgment

4th-5th

  • Caring
  • Common Sense
  • Flexibility: To be willing to alter plans when necessary

 

Staff Development Day: On Monday your students will be home while our teachers are collaborating and learning. The focus of Monday’s staff development is Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Teachers will be collaborating around:

  • Engaging students in scientific talk
  • Building students’ scientific literacy

These opportunities are key for building our capacity as educators.

 

READ-A-THON: The focus of this endeavor is reading for fun!  Students will record their reading time Jan. 20th - Feb. 3rd and collect pledges.  All students are encouraged to participate with or without pledges.  We are hoping for 100% participation this year - the funds raised will go to the new One School, One Book program! In addition, we will also be holding a book drive to benefit Community Education Partnerships. CEP provides literacy support to homeless and highly mobile youth throughout the Bay Area through tutoring, extracurricular enrichment activities, and much-needed school supplies—including books. Please help support this worthy organization with a book donation during the CP Read-a-thon!  Any new or gently used books are welcome.  Donation bins will be in the main hallway across from the office. 

 

New for 2018!  Donations can be made online here - please feel free to share the link!  Additional information, including the tracking sheet and donation sheet (for non-web users), can be found here.  Thank you, Jennifer Burke and Dawn Vineyard for your dedication to this awesome fundraiser!

The film also recounts how she miraculously survived and has become even more eloquent in her quest after being hunted down by a Taliban as part of the organization's violent opposition to girls' education. The title refers to the Afghani folk hero Malalai of Maiwand, after whom her father named her.  A powerful film for everyone!  Event details:, followed by a student panel.
