Parents/Guardians of Elementary and Intermediate Students- Please take a moment to help us make improvements by completing the following survey. What if parents/guardians have multiple children in the same school or in different schools? To be respectful of parent/guardians’ time, we encourage families to complete one survey per school that their children attend. If a parent/guardian has two children in the same school, they should complete the survey based on the experiences of the older child. If a parent/guardian has two children at two different schools, they should complete one survey per school. http://bit.ly/esffamily
Dear Families, November 2, 2020 This week in Social Studies we are focusing on justice. We will be turning ourselves into superheroes by the end of the week. Today students will answer questions such as how do I help, what are my powers, what am I famous for, and what do I stand for (this should be in their folders this afternoon when they come home). I would like for this to be a family project in which you and your student design and create their superhero cape together. This Thursday, November 5th, students will be able to present their superhero identity to the class and wear their capes. Capes can be made using scraps of cloth, old t-shirts, pillow cases and/or paper, you can be as creative as you would like. Thanks, Ms. Maldonado

Each of you has given consent at the beginning of the year to post your child's picture and name on our various media pages. We just want to give you an opportunity to opt-out of participating in virtual student celebrations if you do not want your child's name or picture posted on-line. If you allow your child to participate then there is no need to read any further. If you want to opt-out of your child's name and picture being posted on the district's webpage or social media page then complete the form below. If you have any questions please contact the school. https://forms.gle/2fR9TXcc8rhtQGQs5
