RAINBOW  SPIRIT  DAY!

Principal's Newsletter 4-18-2014

 

Happy Valley Happenings

 

Today was Rainbow Spirit Day and we started the day with a Rainbow Spirit Assembly in the Multi Use Room – isn’t this picture great!  It shows the true spirit of Happy Valley!

 

Earth Week At Happy Valley

April 21-27

Next week is Earth Week and we would like to thank Autumn Gonzalez and Melinda Krigel for organizing activities we all can participate in for each of the days of the week.

 

E - Monday – Earth:

  • Wear Green

 

A - Tuesday – Art:

  • Everyone loves to draw with sidewalk chalk, right? Tuesday, at lunch, is your chance and parents are invited! We'll be adorning both the upper and lower playgrounds with eco art.

 

R - Wednesday - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle:

  • Try to minimize the amount of paper used in the classroom by using ipads, computers, or both sides of the paper. Instead of writing your wordly wise words on a separate piece of paper - memorize them! 
  • WASTE FREE LUNCH DAY. Pack your child's lunch with food in reusable containers, drinks in reusable bottles. Let's try to have zero garbage on Thursday!

 

T - Thursday – Transportation:

  • Roll, Walk, Ride to school. Let's try to cut the drop off and pick up traffic in half! It doesn't matter what you use-bike, scooter, feet or carpool - just cut the CO2.

 

H - Friday - Have A Heart:

  • We will be collecting used batteries (all types but no car) in the office.

 

SBAC Testing

Beginning next week we have the new Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Testing for our 3rd – 5th graders.  Starting April 21st, testing is for 3rd grade, 4th grade starts the week of April 28th,  and 5th grade the week of May 5th.  Each class will be testing for 1 ½ hours a day, in the morning, for 3-4 days.  This is the new statewide assessment that replaces the STAR test and this year it is a pilot test only.   

 

Enjoy The Weekend & Thanks

Hopefully, our weather will be as nice next week, for the beginning of testing, as it has been this week.  Enjoy the weekend and again, thank you for all of your support for our students and the school.

 

Regards,

Jane Blomstrand
