Thank You
Open House was a success!
Thank you to all the families who joined us during open house last Wednesday!

We hope you took the opportunity to see inside your children's classrooms at what the students have been working on so far this year. 
Super huge thank you to all those who volunteered their time to make our first family game night fun for the kids!

Everyone had a blast playing life sized Chutes & Ladders and Candyland, winning candy bars in the Bingo game, munching on hot dogs and chili and playing board games with friends!

Game night would not have been the same without you.

A Message from the Principal
Parents Please Read

 Pokemon cards are not allowed at school.  Many students have been bringing them to school and we have been having problems everyday. 

If students bring Pokemon cards to school I will confiscate them until the end of the school year.

Thank you for helping us with this matter.

Sincerely, 
Principal Bartolini

What's for Lunch this Week?
You can check out all the meal menus on the SDUSD website here!
Do you Pack a Lunch for your Child(ren)?

Packing lunches is not my favorite part of school! Day in and day out this task must be done and it is so easy to fall into a ‘sandwich, chips, fruit, done!’ rut.

Are you looking for more creative ways to jazz up the lunches you pack? Please read here for 30 days of creative, quick and healthy lunch ideas.
