Dear Parents and Guardians:


We have already been in school 23 days and we are off and running.  Most teachers have started the first unit of our new Reading, Writing (ELA/ELD) curriculum which is a civics theme, government.  Each three week unit will start with an essential question.  

Kindergarten - Rules at Home and School, Why do we have rules?

First Grade - Being a Good Community Member, Why do people get involved in their communities? 

Second Grade - Government at Work, Why do we need a government?

Third Grade - Government for the People, Why do people participate in government?
Fourth Grade - Government in Action, How can government influence the way we live?

Fifth Grade - The U.S. Constitution:  Then and Now, Why do laws continue to evolve?

This new curriculum is effective for instruction because it integrates across many subjects.  

I hope you will be able to join me for an new interactive meeting, Learning Committee/ELAC on September 27 at 8:00 a.m. in the LGI.  There are many different changes that are happening in the school program, report cards, conferences and curriculum, so I would like to share more about how we are teaching and students are learning.
