Message from the Principal, Nancy Krueger

Dear Green Acres Families,

As we near the end of the school year, the calendar fills up with activities. We have state testing, kindergarten registration, a talent show, 5th grade Outdoor Science School, and field trips. Students in 2nd-5th grade are reading to meet their AR goals, and are hoping to make a school goal that will push Mrs. Gamban and me to dye our hair some outrageous color. (I’m not quite sure how I got tricked into that one…!)

I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you in my first year as principal, and look forward to coming back in the fall. We have shared many experiences this year: Back-to-School Night, the Fall Festival and Book Fair, Family Learning Nights, student-led conferences, the 2nd Annual Parent Soirée, Family Art Night, the Garden Fair… it has been a wonderful year! The best part about the year has been seeing the growth students have made in their learning.

Please keep the momentum going, by encouraging your child to read this summer and explore their interests. Have a fun-filled summer, and we will see you back here in August!

Garden Education Fair and Work Day: It was great to see so many families here in the garden last Saturday! A HUGE thank you goes out to parent organizers Susie Tellez and Michele Pinkerton; staff members Trina Candia, Jennifer Schmida, and Jennifer-Wolfe Cooley; and our smoothie maker, Doug Ardley. We have a beautiful space, with opportunities for summer gardening and vegetable harvesting. If you can help this summer, please contact Trina at LCandia@losd.ca.

State testing continues for students in grades 3-5 in the morning. Please ensure that your child gets plenty of rest and arrives to school on time. Encourage your child to do his or her best, and remind them that the tests are challenging for everyone. The tests are one way we measure student growth from year to year.

5th grade Outdoor Science School at Camp Campbell: We send our 5th graders off to camp at the end of the month, where they will meet students from our district’s other elementary schools, Del Mar and Live Oak. Attention current 4th grade students and families: The dates for next year’s science camp are June 4th to June 7th. The approximate cost for each student is $290. The school has a very limited number of partial scholarships, so it’s important to start saving now. We will send detailed information home in the fall, including fundraising plans.

Talent Show: The annual Talent Show is coming up! It is scheduled for June 7th; permission forms are in the office and are due by May 19th. Tryouts will be held on May 23rd.

Interdistrict Transfers: Families that have students attending Green Acres on an Interdistrict Transfer need to reapply each year. If you haven’t reapplied, please do so right away. Thanks!

TK and Kindergarten Registration: If you have a child who is 5 or turning 5 years old, please call the office for registration information.

Mensaje de la Directora, Nancy Krueger

Estimadas Familias de Green Acres,

Al acercarnos al final del año escolar, el calendario se llena de actividades. Tenemos pruebas de estado, registro de jardín de infantes, un show de talento, escuela de ciencias al aire libre de 5to grado y excursiones. Los estudiantes de 2º al 5º grado están leyendo para cumplir con sus metas de AR y esperan hacer una meta escolar que empuje a la señora Gamban y a mí para pintar el cabello de un color escandaloso. (No estoy muy seguro de cómo me engañaron en ese ...!)

He disfrutado de conocer a muchos de ustedes en mi primer año como directora, y espero volver en el otoño. Hemos compartido muchas experiencias este año: la Noche de Regreso a la Escuela, el Festival de Otoño y la Feria del Libro, las Noches de Aprendizaje Familiar, las conferencias dirigidas por los estudiantes, la 2ª Fiesta de los Padres, la Noche de Arte Familiar, la Feria del Jardín ... ha sido un maravilloso año! La mejor parte sobre el año ha sido ver el crecimiento que los estudiantes han hecho en su aprendizaje.

Por favor, mantenga el ímpetu en marcha, alentando a su hijo a leer este verano y explorar sus intereses. ¡Tenga un verano lleno de diversión, y nos veremos aquí en agosto!

Jardín de la Educación Feria y Día del Trabajo: Fue genial ver tantas familias aquí en el jardín el sábado pasado! Un GRAN agradecimiento a los padres organizadores Susie Tellez y Michele Pinkerton; Los miembros del personal Trina Candia, Jennifer Schmida y Jennifer-Wolfe Cooley; Y nuestro fabricante de batidos, Doug Ardley. Tenemos un hermoso espacio, con oportunidades para la jardinería de verano y cosecha de hortalizas. Si puede ayudar este verano, comuníquese con Trina en LCandia@losd.ca.

Las pruebas estatales continúan para los estudiantes en los grados 3-5 por la mañana. Por favor asegúrese de que su hijo descanse mucho y llegue a la escuela a tiempo. Anime a su hijo a hacer lo mejor que pueda y recuerde que las pruebas son un reto para todos. Las pruebas son una forma de medir el crecimiento estudiantil de un año a otro.

Escuela de ciencias al aire libre de 5to grado en Camp Campbell: Enviamos a nuestros estudiantes de quinto grado a un campamento al final del mes, donde conocerán a estudiantes de otras escuelas primarias de nuestro distrito, Del Mar y Live Oak. Atención estudiantes y familias de 4to grado actuales: Las fechas para el campo de ciencias del próximo año son del 4 de junio a 7 de junio. El costo aproximado para cada estudiante es de $ 290. La escuela tiene un número muy limitado de becas parciales, así que es importante empezar a ahorrar ahora. Enviaremos información detallada a casa en el otoño, incluyendo planes de recaudación de fondos.

Talent Show: ¡La exposición anual de talentos se acerca! Está programado para el 7 de junio; Los formularios de permiso están en la oficina y deben presentarse antes el 19 de mayo. Las pruebas se llevarán a cabo el 23 de mayo.

Transferencias Interdistritales: Las familias que tienen estudiantes que asisten a Green Acres en una Transferencia Interdistrital necesitan volver a solicitar cada año. Si no ha vuelto a aplicar, por favor, hágalo de inmediato. ¡Gracias!

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!
For questions regarding After School Care Programs
Please call the Live Oak School District Child Development Office at (831) 462-1116.
