April Newsletter

Hello Parents, 

Welcome to April!  I hope each of you enjoyed your spring break with family and friends.  I know that I enjoyed my break with my family.  I enjoyed being with my family! It was great to just be together and relax.  With end of year testing underway, I encourage each student to get the rest they need each night and to have a good breakfast before school.  I know our students will do great as they have shown this throughout the year in their learning and academics.  Keep up the great work!

Thanks to the PTA and all parents who helped us celebrate Teacher Appreciation week.  Our teachers definitely deserve this recognition!  Thanks for making it a great week for them and for all the kindness shown to each teacher! Thanks for all you do!

 

Lost and Found Items:  We have several items in our lost and found back by the lunchroom.  Please have your students take a moment to look for their lost items.  You are welcome to come in and look for items that may be your childs’.  If items continue to increase and become too many, we will donate these items to Tabitha’s Way.

PTA News:

Pick-Up Zone & Parking

We appreciate the efforts of all parents and staff members in providing for the safety of students in our drop-off and pick up zones. Please help us to ensure that all students are accompanied by an adult when crossing through the pick-up zone.  Also, thank you for reserving our handicapped parking spaces for those who have need for these parking stalls. We remind you to please park in a parking stall if you need to leave your vehicles to come inside the school.  This allows the flow of the drop-off and pick-up areas to be maintained and keeps vehicles moving forward and not needing to back up!  We have great appreciation for everyone’s efforts to increase safety in our parking lots and drop off and pick-up zones before and after school.  Winter weather creates a greater need for caution and patience as we come to and from school! 

Note: By law, bus zones cannot be used as drop off and pick up zones even if there are no buses present!

 

School Checkout Procedures

Please follow the following procedures when you need to check a student out from school before the end-of-school bell rings.  First, share with an office secretary that an early checkout is necessary, second, fill out information and sign name on the checkout sheet located in the office area, and third, wait in the office area until your student arrives in the office. Thank you.

 

Students Walking, Riding Bicycles/Scooters & Crosswalks

We have many students who are walking and riding bicycles/scooters to school each day. We have provided training for students to use sidewalks and to follow the instructions of adult supervisors and our crossing guards. We have instructed students to use the crosswalk in front of the school when crossing 1800 East. Faculty members will serve as crossing guards at this crosswalk. We ask that all parents please instruct their children on these and other safety measures to better ensure that students safely make their way to and from school each day.

 

Spirit Day

We have school spirit at Sierra Bonita, and have designated each Friday as our School Spirit Day. We have nice school shirts and encourage children to wear their school shirts (this year’s and past years’ shirts) or school colors (blue and maroon) on Fridays.  We have a lot to be proud of at Sierra Bonita and want to do all we can to build school pride.
