Principal Coffee Chat.jpg

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”  -Helen Keller

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to invite you to join me at a monthly “Principal Coffee Chat”, where we can have an informal discussion about our school.  It will be a good opportunity for me to share our school’s goals for the year, collaboratively plan for upcoming events, and/or address questions or concerns you might have.  The meetings will begin at 8:15 in the Conference Room (near Front Office).  Below are the meeting dates for the 2014-2015 school year.  I look forward to seeing you there.
 

In partnership with you,

Mrs. Raquel Kusunoki

IMPORTANT Message for 6th Grade Parents/Guardians

The countdown has begun for the TDAP shot.  There are a little over 60 days until we need to see proof of TDAP immunization for our 6th grade students.  At this point, most 6th graders should have already gotten their immunization.  Check your student’s shot records.  If their immunization is marked for Tdap, they are in compliance.  Please bring in their shot records to Ms. Anita, our Health Clerk, so she can update our records and their student files.  6th graders CANNOT start middle school until they are in compliance.


Ms. Anita wants to give a big thank you to the parents/guardians that have turned in their student’s shot record.
