Happy Thursday Tribe,

It's gonna be one of those LONG weekends! Reminder student do NOT have school tomorrow Friday 1/17 and there is NO SCHOOL on Monday 1/20 in recognition for Martin Luther Kind Jr. Day.

We also have a Late Start on Wednesday 1/22 - school doors open at 8:35am and class begins at 9:05am. If I am honest, these four day weeks and so far this month - things have been WILD! The routine is off and it is making each week so hard to get back on track but with that honesty, comes the most truthful part, if we keep showing up and putting in the work we tend to have A LOT of fun :) and learning is happening!!!

Flyers (links on the left panel!):

Java with John - This is an opportunity to meet with our Superintendent to stay up to date and ask questions about things going on in our district. A meeting will be held the 4th Friday of each month at our local coffee house, Little Ireland, from 7:30-8:30am.

Kindergarten Registration Night Flyer - Spread the word to any families that have young ones. Every elementary school in our district will be holding a Kindergarten Registration Night on February 4th from 6:00-7:30pm.

Open House Public Forum Flyer - This is an opportunity to give feedback and be a part of the Pacific Parks & Rec Master Planning.

PYA Registration Flyer - Spring registration for Pacific Youth baseball and softball is now open.

Things to keep on your radar

Valentines Day & 2nd Quarter Celebration - Teachers are allowed to have a valentines exchange or be on the look out for more information on that as each class/grade level may differ on their procedures and style of the valentines exchange idea! For those of you wondering about the 3rd Quarter Celebration please note that we have it scheduled for Thursday 2/13 from 2:00-3:30pm. This is an early 3rd Quarter Celebration for two reasons, 1 so we can tie in the Valentines Day theme and 2 because we do not have school for student on Friday 2/14 due to teacher professional development! I do have the stations and organization of the celebration ready just yet but for those eager to plan and be available I have set up the volunteer sign up below! More information to come.

Sign up to volunteer and support us through the stations during our celebration here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4aa5ad2aa4f85-3rdquarter
