Dear Families,

Welcome back! It was wonderful to see so many families at Poga’s Family Learning Night! Please fill out the survey below to help us plan for next year’s events, and turn it in by Friday, April 14. Thank you!

We have another fun evening planned for our school community this month. Mark your calendars for Family Art Night on Wednesday, April 19! The Arts Council of Santa Cruz County will bring us an evening of dance, drumming, visual art and storytelling. We will serve dinner at 5:30, and families will rotate through the workshops from 6-8pm. If you are interested in helping out, please let us know in the office.

Our Garden Education Fair will be held on Saturday, May 6th, from 9am-12. Come learn about bees, drink a smoothie, help out in the garden, or sign up for a summer garden plot! There will even be raffle prizes! Plan to come for the fun, and if you are interested in helping the planning committee, email Trina Candia: for our next meeting date.

We have a new activity after school for students (and parents, too!) - Spanish Club starts this Friday! Spanish Club is a great way to log activities for the Language Ambassadors Program, for Spanish speakers who want more practice, and English speakers who are new to the language. We will explore different themes through songs and games in Spanish that students can practice online at home.

Office notes: It is important for your child to be in school everyday, on time. You are welcome to drop your child off early; we serve a hot breakfast in the cafeteria daily from 7:30-7:55 am and there is supervision outside beginning at 7:45am.

Please avoid making appointments during school hours, if possible. When it cannot be avoided, remember that you need to come to the school office to sign your child out. It is also helpful to let your child and your child’s teacher know in advance, so they can plan for it.  All visitors must sign in at the school office; this is for your child’s safety.

Queridas familias,

Bienvenido de nuevo! ¡Fue maravilloso ver tantas familias en la Noche de Aprendizaje Familiar de Poga! Por favor, llene la encuesta a continuación para ayudarnos a planear los eventos del próximo año y entréguela antes del viernes 14 de abril. ¡Gracias!

Tenemos otra noche divertida planeada para nuestra comunidad escolar este mes. ¡Marque sus calendarios para la Noche de Arte Familiar el miércoles, 19 de abril! El Consejo de las Artes del Condado de Santa Cruz nos traerá una noche de baile, tambores, arte visual y narración de cuentos. Serviremos la cena a las 5:30, y las familias girarán a través de los talleres de 6-8pm. Si usted está interesado en ayudar, por favor háganos saberlo en la oficina.

Nuestra Feria de Educación Jardín se llevará a cabo el sábado, 6 de mayo, de 9 am-12. Ven a aprender acerca de las abejas, beber un batido, ayudar en el jardín, o inscribirse en una parcela de jardín de verano! ¡Incluso habrá premios de rifa! Planee venir para la diversión, y si está interesado en ayudar al comité de planificación, envíe un correo electrónico a Trina Candia: para la próxima fecha de la reunión.

Tenemos una nueva actividad después de la escuela para los estudiantes (¡y también para los padres!) - ¡El Club Español comienza este viernes! El Club de Español es una excelente manera de registrar actividades para el Programa de Embajadores de Idiomas, para los hispanohablantes que quieren más práctica, y para quienes hablan inglés que son nuevos en el idioma. Vamos a explorar diferentes temas a través de canciones y juegos en español que los estudiantes pueden practicar en línea en casa.

Notas de la oficina: Es importante que su hijo esté en la escuela todos los días, a tiempo. Usted es bienvenido para traer a su niño temprano; servimos un desayuno caliente en la cafetería todos los días de 7:30-7:55am y hay supervisión afuera comenzando a las 7:45 am.

Por favor evite hacer citas durante horas de escuela, si es posible. Cuando no se puede evitar, recuerde que necesita venir a la oficina de la escuela para firmar a su hijo. También es útil que su hijo y el maestro de su hijo sepan de antemano, para que puedan planificarlo. Todos los visitantes deben firmar en la oficina de la escuela; esto es para la seguridad de su hijo.

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!
