Dear Green Acres Families,

As we finish the second trimester, I hope you are all able to attend your child’s “student-led conference” this week. We feel it is important for students to take charge of their learning, and notice their progress towards goals. Hard work and practice pay off in academics, just like they do in sports, and we want students to realize this. It is part of developing a “growth mindset.” Students’ report cards will be sent home the following week.

Spring is just around the corner, and we have some fun events to look forward to! Be on the lookout for information from our Home and School Club about their 2nd Annual Parent Soirée and Silent Auction, to be held on Saturday, March 11, at the East Cliff Brewery. Funds raised from this event benefit Green Acres students.

We also have another Family Learning Night to look forward to on March 30, from 5:30-7pm. Save the date! Fun for the whole family! Grade levels will host learning activities ranging from science investigations to computer coding. Look for details in flyers later this month.

At our last Family Learning Night, many of you learned about our Language Ambassadors Program. This program celebrates and encourages learning another language in addition to English. Students who complete a minimum of 6 activities by the end of April will be recognized by the County Office of Education. Some students have shown interest in starting a Spanish Club at our school, and would like to have some after school activities in Spanish. If you, as a parent, are interested in this idea, please come to a special ELAC meeting on March 10 at 12:45pm.

In April, we will be hosting a Family Art Night through the Arts Council, and we will have a Garden Work Day on the first Saturday in May. If you are interested in helping out with either of these events, please contact the office.

Please remember how important your child’s attendance is for their learning. We are continuing our raffles for Santa Cruz Warriors tickets for students with perfect attendance and improved attendance. We have also teamed up with Marianne’s Ice Cream to offer additional attendance incentives when the basketball season ends. If you find it necessary for your child to be out 5 days or more, please inquire about independent study to keep up with classwork.

Safety reminders: Dogs are not allowed on campus; if it is necessary to bring a service dog, please make sure it is on a leash and wearing a vest for easy identification. Remember all visitors must sign in at the office, even to drop something off for your child. If you are not wearing a visitor sticker or volunteer badge during school hours, you will be asked to return to the office to sign in.

Estimadas familias de Green Acres,

Al terminar el segundo trimestre, espero que todos ustedes puedan asistir a la "conferencias dirigidas por los estudiantes" de su hijo esta semana. Creemos que es importante que los estudiantes se hagan cargo de su aprendizaje y noten su progreso hacia sus objetivos. El trabajo duro y la práctica dan resultados académicos, al igual que lo hacen en los deportes, y queremos que los estudiantes se den cuenta de esto. Es parte del desarrollo de una "mentalidad de crecimiento". Las boleta de calificaciones de los estudiantes serán enviadas a casa la semana siguiente.

La primavera está acercándose, y tenemos algunos eventos divertidos que esperar! Esté atento a la información de nuestro Club de Hogar y Escuela acerca de su 2ª Sesión Anual de Padres y Subasta Silenciosa, que se llevará a cabo el sábado 11 de marzo en la cervecería East Cliff. Los fondos recaudados de este evento benefician a los estudiantes de Green Acres.

También tenemos otra Noche de Aprendizaje Familiar que esperamos el 30 de marzo, de 5:30 a 7pm. ¡Diversión para toda la familia! Los niveles de grado proveerán actividades de aprendizaje que van desde investigaciones científicas hasta codificación de computadoras. Busque los detalles en folletos a finales de este mes.

En nuestra última Noche Familiar de Aprendizaje, muchos de ustedes aprendieron acerca de nuestro Programa de Embajadores de Idiomas. Este programa celebra y estimula el aprendizaje de otro idioma además del inglés. Los estudiantes que terminen un mínimo de 6 actividades a finales de abril serán reconocidos por la Oficina de Educación del Condado. Algunos estudiantes han mostrado interés en iniciar un club de español en nuestra escuela, y les gustaría tener algunas actividades después de la escuela en español. Si usted, como padre, está interesado en esta idea, venga a una reunión especial de ELAC el 10 de marzo a las 12:45 pm.

Por favor recuerde que tan importante es la asistencia de su hijo para su aprendizaje. Estamos continuando nuesEn abril, estaremos organizando una Noche de Arte Familiar a través del Consejo de las Artes, y tendremos un Día de Trabajo en el Jardín el primer sábado de mayo. Si está interesado en ayudar con cualquiera de estos eventos, comuníquese con la oficina.

Las rifas para los boletos de los “Santa Cruz Warriors” para los estudiantes con la asistencia perfecta y asistencia mejorada. También nos hemos asociado con “Marianne’s Ice Cream” (helado) para ofrecer incentivos de asistencia adicionales cuando termine la temporada de baloncesto. Si usted encuentra que es necesario para su hijo/a estar ausente 5 días o más, por favor pregunte acerca de estudio independiente para mantenerse con el trabajo en clase.

Recordatorios de seguridad: No se permiten perros en el campus; si es necesario traer un perro de servicio, cerciórese de por favor que esté en una correa y que use un chaleco para la identificación fácil. Recuerde que todos los visitantes deben firmar en la oficina, incluso para dejar algo para su hijo. Si no lleva una pegatina de visitante o una insignia de voluntario durante las horas escolares, se le pedirá que regrese a la oficina.

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.
