This Friday, September 27th, marks the end of the first marking period for our middle school students. It will be good to remind your child to submit projects, assignments to their teachers before then. You should receive your child’s report card no later than two weeks from then.
You are invited to come and have fun as we do art together on our Family Art Night on Wednesday, October 2nd at the Mayeda Multi-Purpose Room. Whether your child attends Burnett or Mayeda, you are welcome to this exciting artful event. Shall I see you then?
We have been closely monitoring tardiness at the beginning of the day as well as between periods at our Mayeda campus. Please make every effort to get your child / children to school on time everyday. It is also important to speak with them about getting to their classes on time every period. Note that we are handing out tardy detentions to those who have repeated (three and every three thereafter) tardiness.
BRTI (Behavior Response to Intervention) Update: We continue to work on creating a safe, positive and joyful environment at our school. A proactive classroom management strategy that we strive to consistently implement is to maintain a 5:1 ratio of positive to corrective statements. I encourage you to work on that at home as well. Providing our children positive reinforcements certainly helps in boosting their self-esteem, hence, creating a better self-image of themselves.
If your child takes the school bus, please have a conversation with him / her about consistently following our rules and expectations. All these were reviewed in a bus riders’ assembly and our most recent Friday Sing-Along. Citations issued by bus drivers and teachers will result in suspension of bus privileges.
We are currently seeking parents/guardians interested in becoming members of the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC) advises the Principal and the School Site Council on how to address the issues of English Language Learners. If you are interested, please email or contact Assistant Principal Tiffany Obayashi.
The Rooftop Run is coming up really soon. Event Chair Renee Suttner-Vale will be sending out information and materials next week. I ask for your full support to make this annual fundraiser a huge success.
The Common Learning Assessment administration window is from September 30th to October 11th. Let us encourage all children to give it their best shot. The CLA provides us valuable information as we plan even more focused and purpiseful instruction for our students.
With you in building, strengthening, and sustaining a strong community of successful learners,
