November 2017


Dear Green Acres Families,


The FALL FESTIVAL was a lot of fun and a great kick-off for the Scholastic Book Fair! A HUGE THANKS to the volunteers who put in countless hours planning, setting up, jumping in when needed, and cleaning up afterwards. The Book Fair will continue through 11/3, and is open 9:00-2:30 Monday-Thursday, and 9:00-1:30 on Friday.


Thanks to all of the people who bought and sold Drive for School tickets, we surpassed our goal of $10,000 to raise money for enriching the education of all of our students! The money raised will benefit programs such as our science garden, 5th grade outdoor science school, school-wide assemblies, and our school library. We are appreciative of everyone's efforts, and especially to Aaron Lieben, for organizing the Drive for Schools fundraiser at our site and Go-Kart parties. The top-selling classrooms were Ms. Billey's, Mrs. Thomas', Mrs. Rispaud's, and Mrs. Davilla's classes, raising over $1,000 each.


We are excited to announce an attendance incentive program with the support of Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEP) and the Santa Cruz Warriors. Every week, students with perfect attendance will have their name entered into a drawing for two Warrior tickets to a home game during the 2016-17 season! The drawings will happen throughout the season, so students will have multiple chances to win. Remember, in your child’s education, every day counts!


Here’s how you can help:

  • Get your child to school on time, every day and make sure homework assignments are complete.

  • Give your child enough time to get ready for school in the morning. Try preparing lunches, packing school bags and laying out clothing the night before.

  • Extended vacations, long weekends and frequent doctor appointments scheduled during school hours will cause your child to fall behind in class.

  • Being in school every day raises your child's ability to score well on important tests throughout the year.

  • Follow the proper school guidelines for reporting excused absences in a timely manner.

  • Approximately 90% of our school district general purpose revenue is derived from student attendance. Each day your student is absent means fewer resources will be available for your child's classroom.

  • When your student attends for ANY part of the day, he or she is marked present for the entire day, which means more resources for your school and more learning opportunities.

  • Allow your child to stay home only when he or she has a contagious illness, has a fever, or is too sick to attend.

  • Make sure your child exercises, eats a balanced diet, and gets plenty of sleep. This will help him or her to be mentally and physically ready to learn, while strengthening their immune system.

Conference days are Monday, 11/20, and Tuesday, 11/21. Please note that your children will not attend school on those days. Teachers will use those days to meet with parents and discuss the individual progress and needs of each student. Be prepared to share your child’s strengths you notice at home and questions you have for your child’s teacher.

GREEN ACRES SCHOOL RULES
1. Be Safe
2. Be Respectful
3. Be Responsible
4. Do your personal best!
Did you know that one of the most important strategies of a safe, strong school is knowing the school rules? Teachers give lessons on how these rules apply in the classroom, the library, the playground, the cafeteria, the garden, and while moving from one area to another. Our goal is to make sure we have taught students the positive behaviors we expect them to use.

Ask your child if they can tell you the Green Acres Rules, and if they can give you an example of following the rules at school. A great way to extend their thinking would be to create examples of what it would mean to follow the rules at home. What do you do to be safe at home? Respectful? Responsible? Let us know some of the ideas you come up with!
