“The earth is what we all have in common.” — Wendell Berry

 

LIFESKILLS FOCUS for April 10-May 12

  • TK-1st = Cooperation - To work together toward a common goal or purpose

  • 2nd-5th =

    • Cooperation

    • Perseverance - To keep at it

 

Front Circle EARTH DAY Planting: We had lots of help planting and excavating the front circle area. In less than one day the area went from a rocky dirt pile to a beautiful native habitat. This was all made possible due to the generous time and expertise that  Laura Osteen has donated to this project. Thank you Laura, and thank you to all the CP families who helped.

 

Father Daughter Dance: Thank you Amy Johnson and all the parent volunteers who transformed the MUR into a spectacular circus themed ballroom. The father daughter dance is a great CP tradition and we are lucky to have amazing parents to help us carry on this tradition.

 

CAASPP Testing: Each May, 3rd-5th grade students take the CAASPP test. This test assess students in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. The state uses the results of these tests as one factor in determining our progress as a school and district. Here is a link to the testing schedule. If a child is absent during a testing session he/she has to miss class time to make-up the missed session. Attendance on these days is important.

 

Class Placement: The CP team spends a lot of time working on classroom placement for next year. Our main goal when building classes is to create balanced classes. Balancing classes requires us to look at many variables such as: students that need extra support, academic progress, peer relationships, etc. I work on this process with each grade level twice in May. During this process we build balanced classes and I place each class with a specific teacher.

If you feel that your child has a unique situation or need that I need to be aware of during this careful placement process please send me an email by 4/28/2017. These requests should not be made through the teacher. Requests for a specific teacher will not be granted. Please know that your request will be considered within the larger context of balancing classes.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! - Too Good For Drugs Program

Drug-awareness education is included in the 4th/5th grade Health Education Standards.  Traditionally, parents have taken an active role in presenting these lessons to students, in coordination with the classroom teacher.  Again this year, we need parent support!  

We are seeking parent volunteers to teach the Too Good for Drugs (TGFD) Curriculum in our 4th and 5th grade classrooms.    The curriculum is fully developed, including lesson plans and all materials.  You do not need to be a parent of a 4th or 5th grader to participate. Also, training is provided so that parents feel confident about presenting, along with management support from the classroom teacher. This is truly a great opportunity to get into the classrooms and support student leaning.  

The TGFD curriculum has been recently updated to include more games, interaction, and real-life problem-solving situations (social media, peer pressure, etc.) to make the lessons more engaging for students.  The curriculum consists of 8 – 10 lessons, delivered over approximately 2 weeks in individual classrooms.  

If you are interested in getting involved with CP’s TGFD program, please contact Principal Chris Reddam at creddam@moraga.k12.ca.us  by Tuesday, April 25.  A parent training will be scheduled for May 2nd, so that classroom lessons can be delivered during the month of May.
