There will be a brief Title 1 Parent meeting at 5:30 pm in the auditorium. At this time, I will share some information on how we partner with families of Title 1 students and ways that you can get involved.There will also be a brief message from PTA and Staff Introductions.
Following this brief presentation, you will have the opportunity to visit classrooms. Back to School Night is a great time to meet your child's teacher and learn about your child's classroom expectations. Some grade levels may be presenting as a grade level team so that you may meet all of the teachers who teach your child. We will repeat these sessions twice for your convenience. The schedule is as follows:

  • Session #1: 6:00-6:30 pm
  • Session #2: 6:30-7:00 pm
Attendance :  September is Attendance Awareness Month. Please encourage your child to arrive at school on time and be present at school unless they are ill. Research shows that missing school affects achievement and school success. If your child will be absent from school, please call our 24 hour attendance line at ( 619) 825-5634 to report the absence.

Morning Mile: Morning Mile is back this year! Each morning all students have the opportunity to exercise with their friends for 30 minutes before school starts! We know that starting our day with movement helps to increase happiness, improve memory and learning, improve concentration, and decrease stress! Student and adult family members are welcome to join and earn tokens for each 5 miles they walk! We're excited to see you out there!

Colorful fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrients. Nutrients are things like vitamins, minerals, and protein. Nutrients are important for a strong body - so you can jump higher, run faster, and play longer and stronger. Colorful fruits and vegetables also have special nutrients that boost brain power to help you do your best in school. That's why it's important to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. At least five servings is good More than five is great!
