    Good Afternoon Bobcat Families,

     

    Congratulations to our promoting 5th graders!  We all wish you the best in middle school.  We know you have great things in your future.

     

    It was such a blessing to end this year on so many positive notes with old and new traditions – concerts, promotion, movies, tricathlons, CHS Grad Walk,  and our softball game.  Our students, staff, and families did an exceptional job this year.   I could not be prouder to be part of this community.  I hope you all have a wonderful summer.  I know we all need it.  You can start looking for my communication about next year at the end of July.  We will see you in August.

     

    Important Dates:

    • Monday, August 8, 2022: First day of school.

     

    Stay Bobcat Strong and Tular Proud

    Go Bobcats!

    Tricathlon

    This week we held our first ever Tricathlon for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students.  What is a Tricathlon you might ask… It is a combination of a triathlon and tricycle.  With our 3rd-5th grade students ending the year swimming and with the great success of our morning mile, we wanted to do a culminating event and thought a triathlon using tricycles would be a lot of fun.   So the students started in the pool swimming laps, then transitioned to tricycles and rode a course around campus, and ended with running our track.  It was a lot of fun and really pushed our students.  We are already excited for next year’s event.

     

    5th grade Party needs volunteers

    We are still in need of some volunteers to help with our 5th grade celebration on Wednesday, June 1 from 10:30-2:30.  If you can help, please check out the signups:

    EOY Pool Party Volunteer Sign Up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F084CA8AC2DA1F85-eoypool

     

    5th Grade Promotion

    Next Thursday at 1:30 our 5th graders will be going through their promotion ceremony on our lower field.  Please be aware that parking after school that day will be more crowded than normal.

     

    CHS Grad Walk

    Next Thursday morning CHS Graduates that attended Tular will come walk our campus in their caps and gowns to revisit the campus, see their past teachers, get our students looking forward to the day when they get to graduate from high school, and allow our students the chance to congratulate our CHS graduates.  

     

    PTO Message

    Thank you, again, to everyone who helped out this year.  We are looking forward to next school year and all we can do to continue to support our wonderful school and community.  Happy Summer!

    Spring Fling

    Thank you to everyone who participated in our Spring Fling.   It was our most successful even ever in raising money for our school.  All together we brough in about $70,000.  What an amazing night.  I especially want to thank Rob and Gina for all of their work organizing and to everyone who helped out.  It definitely takes a team to put that on.  Included in that total was $17,000 raised directly for our garden so that we take our garden to the next level by updating our greenhouse and water feature and installing a kitchen area so that we really focus on our farm to table based program.  The extra money raised will also go a long way to help our 5th graders enjoy a great overnight experience since we are having to find a new trip for them.

    K-3 Spring Sing

    Our Kinder, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders put on a great spring music concert last night under the direction of our wonderful music teacher, Mrs. Crawford.   It was so much fun to be in Bobcat Hall with everyone again and see our new instruments in a concert.  I want to, again, thank FOCUS and Music Boosters for providing us with the grant money ($20,000) to purchase all of our instruments in 2020.  You can learn more about FOCUS and Music Boosters or give to these two great organizations on their websites: FOCUS and Music Boosters

     

    Last Morning Mile Next Week

    Next week will be our last Morning Mile week, as I will need to do the student’s Twinkle Toe Ceremonies the following week. I will be calculating the grand totals of all miles run around the track this year, but from the start of the school year until Spring Break, we as a school stood at 42,837 laps around the track, which is approximately 10,710 miles! That is the same as starting at the top of Africa and running all the way to the bottom… then turn around and do it again. What an awesome accomplishment, but what brought me the most joy was the event that Morning Mile developed into throughout the year. Something as simple as playing some music and handing out some popsicle sticks became a healthy lifestyle routine, a first social event since the pandemic, a raging dance party on the hill, a message board for events, a place for families to connect, and more smiles than I can count. Thank you for being a part of Morning Mile, there is a reason why they call Tularcitos the best kept secret of CUSD, and it is because of the families that we are spoiled to have.   - Mr. A

    State Testing for 3rd-5th Grade Students

    3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be taking the state-wide Smarter Balanced Assessment on a few different days over the next two weeks of May 2nd and May 9th in the morning.  While we do not make a big deal about this testing, we do want to make sure our students can do their best.  During these weeks, please do not schedule appointments during the morning and make sure the students get a good night’s sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast, and come with a healthy snack (as they should every day) so students’ brains are well fueled and ready to do their best.  While we want all of our students to take this test so they can show everything they know (and the state requires that we test at least 95% of our students), if there is a reason you would not like your student to take the state testing, please email Mr Peterson, and we can excuse them.  (For those students who do not take the test, they will sit in their classroom and work on silent activities while the other students take the test.)

     

    Doctor and Dentist Notes

    Please remember that if your child is out for a doctor, dentist, or other appointment, you need to get a note from them to excuse the absence. Please provide your note to Lindsey in the office when you return to school.

     

    COVID Testing Still Happening

    Our COVID protocols for returning to school when a student is absent have not changed.  So when a student is out ill, they still must be COVID tested, or have a doctor’s note, before they can return to school.  We have COVID testing at school starting every morning at 8:15 in the ceramic room.

     

    PTO Message

    We are planning for next year and right now we do not have anyone to fill our Vice President or Secretary roles for the 2022/23 school year.   If you are interested in serving on our Executive Board, please reach out to Gina Nucci.

    Parent Input form for Next Year’s Class Placement

    At the end of each year, we work as a staff to establish classes that are balanced for next year.  When making class placement decisions, we take into account a variety of factors to achieve the best balance possible. The following factors are considered: 

    • Each student’s academic status, special needs, interests, behavior, and motivation; 
    • Boy/girl ratio; 
    • Academic balance of high, medium and low achieving students; 
    • Styles of individual teachers; 
    • Class size balance among classes at each grade level.

    Music as Medicine Assembly

    Today, we had Ryan Brolliar from the Music as Medicine Tour, come visit our school.  Ryan spent a year traveling the United States in his “Jambulance” playing music to people in hospitals to spread joy to people in need.  While he was at Tular he did two assemblies for us where he combined his passion of  music with a motivational message for students to take the things they enjoy doing and share them with others to make a positive impact.  He then spent time in each of our 5th grade classes going even deeper with them and having them specifically identify their passions, figure out how they could use those to have a positive impact on others, and then challenged them to take action in order to have a positive ripple effect in their community.  It was so much fun to have him here and for our students to hear from someone who lives a life to positively impact others around him.  Thank you, Ryan, for your motivation and example of what it means to live with character. 

     

    Parent Input form for Next Year’s Class Placement

    At the end of each year, we work as a staff to establish classes that are balanced for next year.  When making class placement decisions, we take into account a variety of factors to achieve the best balance possible. The following factors are considered: 

    • Each student’s academic status, special needs, interests, behavior, and motivation; 
    • Boy/girl ratio; 
    • Academic balance of high, medium and low achieving students; 
    • Styles of individual teachers; 
    • Class size balance among classes at each grade level.

    Parents/Guardians who would like to give input about their child’s placement may write a request for a particular learning environment (e.g. learning style, personality attributes, classroom physical environment, educational needs, etc.) by completing the Electronic Class Placement Parent Input Form below.  All forms must be submitted by Friday, May 6th.   No late forms will be accepted.  Additionally, since some teachers change grade levels year to year, please do not write a request for a specific teacher.

    Supervision After School

    We have noticed more and more students hanging out and playing after school waiting for parents to arrive.  Please make sure that you arrive at 3:00 to pick up or supervise your student if they are going to be playing after school. Students are not allowed to be hanging out/playing on the playground after school without being supervised by a parent.  We need to make sure the students are safe and we do not have supervision after school.

     

    COVID Test Kits Available before Vacation

    Starting Monday, 4/4, to Friday, 4/8, you can pick up at-home COVID tests from the Tular ceramic/COVID testing room. These tests are available for students to use prior to coming back from spring break.  This will be the only opportunity for parents to pick up an at-home test for your student to use over spring break. There will not be at-home COVID test distribution during the spring break week, and no tests will be available after spring break.

    I hope you had as much fun at the family dance as I did.   What a great time!  Thank you to Mr A, DJ Beachcomber Kelley, Gina Nucci and our PTO for all your help in putting it on. We are already figuring out how to make next year’s dance even better.

     

    Fairness and Trustworthy Week

    Next week is our Fairness and Trustworthy Week where we focus on the character pillars of fairness and trustworthiness by having students participate in a school-wide project, have daily challenges for students around the pillars, and students in different grade levels learned songs in Music and Spanish about fairness and trustworthiness.  

     

    Talent Show

    Our Talent Show is Friday, April 1, at 6:00 pm in Bobcat Hall.  It will be a great show and everyone is welcome to come watch, not just those in the show.  We hope to see you there.  For those participating, remember that the dress rehearsal is Monday, 3/28, at 3:15.

     

    District Music Festivals

    Our district Band and Orchestra Festivals are coming.  These are great highlights of the wonderful music program in CUSD.  They feature performances by the elementary, middle, and high school music students at the Sunset Center.  In addition to a great concert, this is also a great time for our 5th graders (who all play an instrument) to see what is to come if they continue with music at CMS and CHS.  The band festival is Wed, 3/30, and the orchestra festival is Tues, 4/5.  Both are at 7:00 pm.
