Important Information

In 2015-16, school will start at 8:30. Wednesdays are minimums days with dismissal at 1:30. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, school dismissal will be at 3:00.

Attendance Rules Summary

It is important for parents to understand the rules on attendance.  Children can only be absent for three reasons: illness, doctor's appointment, or bereavement for immediate family.  If a student is not in school for any other reason, they are marked as truant.  Parents must call the school or write a note to verify an absence. It is also a truancy if a child is late by more than 30 minutes or picked up early by more than 30 minutes without a valid reason.

Please do not plan vacations on school days or to extend a weekend.  This is not legal.  Your child misses school and learns that schoolwork is not important.  We very much want to improve our attendance and our student achievement -- both go together.

CAASPP Testing May 2 through 13!  Be Here, Be on Time, Be Ready and Positive!

From May 2nd through 13th, student in grades 3-5 will be taking the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress.  These tests are extremely important for your child and the school.  We want students to do their best.  Please be sure your child is here everyday, on time, and well rested during their testing window.  Please be encouraging and positive.  The assessments are challenging.

 

Ocean Week May 2nd through 6th.  Parent volunteers needed for fish print T-Shirts Tues. and Wed.

     Next week is Ocean Week at Glen Cove Elementary School.  We started this science project about 19 years ago.  The Lawrence Hall of Science created the MARE curriculum.  Several schools in Vallejo  received training and materials.  The teachers at Highland Elementary School came to Glen Cove and helped set up the MARE curriculum and Ocean Week.  We have been doing the program ever since.  The topics for each grade level are as follows: kindergarten learn about the Rocky Seashore; grades 1 and 2 learn about the Sandy Beach; 3rd grade is the Wetlands; 4th grade is the Kelp Forest; and 5th grade is the Open Ocean.

     During this week and the following week, we have lots of activities.  Several classes are going to the Glen Cove Marina.  On a low tide they can find Harris Mud Crabs and learn about beach hoppers and rock louses.  We have assemblies where students learn about fish, octopi, invasive species, kelp, etc.  We have two large green sturgeon skins that are fascinating.  We have a shark dissection for 5th graders and 4th graders learn about diving for abalone.  All classes make murals for the multi-purpose room and we decorate the office area with a kelp collection.  We need parent volunteers to help on the May 3rd and 4th 9:00 to 1:00 or any part of these times.  Please call the office if you can help.  This is a big project!  On Tuesday and Wednesday students are to bring either $3.00 or a white T-shirt! On Friday, students are to wear their fish print T-Shirts.

Kindness Is the Focus for the Next 8 Weeks

In addition to being safe, respectful, and responsible we would like all our children to work on kindness in actions and words.  A good number of problems that occur between and among students are connected with mean words or actions.  Often this is for negative humor.  Please discuss kindness at home and what it means.

 

Warriors are Great -- Students Need Sleep!

Please record the games and show them at times that are appropriate to elementary aged students!  10:00 is too late for elementary students to go to sleep.  This will be particularly important during our state testing period the beginning of May.
