Joseph Elementary School maintains the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (P.B.I.S.) program to help foster a responsible, respectful and safe learning environment for students and staff.  PBIS is a school-wide behavioral approach where students are supported and empowered to equally contribute to our school’s success and safety.  To highlight and celebrate positive behavior, we have implemented Weller Student store as a reward system for all students.  Our student store will be open one day during  the week of March 9.  The exact date and times will be determined by the end of this week.

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.

Multi Cultural Festival.png

We will be hosting a Multicultural Festival in April to celebrate the rich and diverse culture we have at Weller.  It will be a great opportunity for our children to learn about different cultures and appreciate the diversity we are fortunate to have.  We are asking for your support by volunteering to teach our students a multicultural folk dance or song.

In addition, we can use your support with the following:

1) Purchasing paper plates, cups, tablecloths and silverware

2) Set up and clean up

3) Run a multicultural information booth about a specific country or target culture.

4) Run a multicultural arts/crafts booth.

5) Offer multicultural entertainment.

  • Can you dance? Sing?
  • Play an instrument?
  • Share a folk story or poem from another culture?

For more information or questions about volunteering, please contact one of the following teachers:  Mrs. Nguyen at [email protected], Mr. Duong @ [email protected], Ms. Mathias @ [email protected], Ms. Miller @ j[email protected], or Ms. Hirano at [email protected].
