Good Afternoon Bobcat Families,
Things are starting to look a little better. Just to give an update, this week we continue to have about a half-dozen new COVID cases daily, but thankfully the total number of absences each day has dropped into the 40’s. Please continue to do all you can to stay safe as we go through this time and if you have any sick symptoms at all, stay home and call the school. Please also remember to send your child to school each day with a clean mask and an extra.

Spelling Bee Scoring Help Needed
The Monterey County Spelling Bee is starting up and we need help scoring the first round of tests, which are written. The Spelling Bee is just for 4th and 5th graders and the county is still figuring out how the final school and county rounds will go. For now, we will need help scoring our tests the afternoon of Thurs, Jan 27 from 2:00-3:00. If you are able/willing to help score the spelling tests, please email Lindsey Terry at email@example.com. Thank you.
Family Dance and Talent Show New Dates

If you were on campus this week you may have noticed some beautifully painted rocks with uplifting messages on them. Thank you, 5th graders and teachers, for creating these to spread positiveness around campus and reminding us to make the day better for others. They have been a great addition to our campus.
Elementary Math Curriculum Adoption Process
Over the last two years, CUSD has been engaged in a process to review, field test, evaluate, and select high quality instructional materials for mathematics at the elementary level. The K-5 Elementary Mathematics Adoption Committee recently finished its field testing and evaluation process, and is recommending that i-Ready Mathematics by Curriculum Associates be brought to the CUSD Board of Education for approval. Part of the process requires instructional materials to be made accessible to the public for review for thirty days prior to the Board taking action. Copies of student materials will be available for public review and feedback in the front office at each elementary school from January 10th to February 18th. The CUSD Board will consider the adoption of the new materials at the March 9, 2022 Board meeting. If adopted, the materials will then be implemented districtwide in the 2022-2023 school year.
