4th Gr. Back to School Night is Thurs.


Please plan to attend our Back to School Night this Wed. for grades K-3 and Thurs. for grades 4-6.  It starts at 6:00 p.m.  Normally, we would meet in the auditorium; however, the sound system is still being installed and will not be ready for Back to School night unfortunately.  Please go directly to your child’s classroom.

Last week, students practiced getting into routine with homefun.  If they forgot or didn’t complete, they received a reminder but no actual consequence.  This week, I will be starting to hold them accountable for their homefun.  Please help them strengthen their homefun routine at home by establishing a homework time and place every night, especially their Reading Every Night.  Rewards and consequences for homefun, or lack thereof, will be in effect starting Monday.  Thank you for your help at home.

On Friday, I sent home a Weekly Progress Report about your child’s behavior, work habits, and class participation.  Please sign and have your child sign and return on Monday.  Please expect these to come home every Friday, and have a conversation with your child regarding their progress.

Swimming – 4th grade classes will have free swim lessons starting Mon. Oct. 6 for two weeks.  A letter with more information as well as a permission slip will be sent home this week.  Deadline for permission slips will be Fri. Sept. 26.

GATE students – There will be a GATE parent meeting Tues. Sept. 16. Flyer will be sent home today (Mon).


Music! – Have you been wanting to learn music? There will be a Music Camp for interested and returning students all this week 9/15-9/19 at Chula Vista Middle School (not Vista Square-sorry) at 5th and G St. from 3:30-5:30 Mon-Thurs and Friday 2:00-4:00. On Wed. 9/17 there will be a Potluck and Talent Show at 5:30 pick-up time.  Students will have a Performance Fri. 9/19 from 6:30-7:00.

Regular Music Classes will resume Thurs. Oct. 9 and will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:30 at Vista Square Elementary at 5th and G St. for Band/Orchestra and at Kellogg Elementary at 229 E. Naples St. for strings.  If you have any questions, feel free to call or text Diane Gerken (Opus parent volunteer) at (619) 754-5026 or email Emmanuel Soto at esoto@sdys.org.  This program is sponsored by the San Diego Youth Symphony Community Opus Project.

My daughter just joined, and she is loving playing recorder (provided) and later violin (provided).  Materials provided and certified music instruction for a minimal fee.  Music is making a huge comeback into schools.  It’s an exciting time!
