    Good Afternoon Bobcat Families,

     

    Thank you for much for all of the appreciation this week.  The doors were amazing, all the cards, flowers, and gifts were extremely thoughtful, and the lunch yesterday was incredible.  We all feel so appreciated.  Thank you!  I also want to thank Kristen Rianda for all of her work as room parent coordinator.   She does so much to support our room parents and make weeks like this go so smoothly.  Thank you, Kristen.

    Good Afternoon Bobcat Families,

     

    I want to thank everyone for their feedback from the shelter in place on Wednesday.  We got a lot of thanks and compliments for how the situation was handled, and we got some good feedback on how things could have gone better.   

     

    One thing we learned where you can help us in an emergency is that when an emergency happens, please watch your ParentSquare rather than call the office.  When the notification of a shelter in place went out on Wednesday, people understandably started calling the office.  Because we were taking the time to respond to the notification and make sure our students and staff were safe at that time, we were unable to answer the phones.  Thank you for your understanding that when an emergency happens, our first actions will be to make sure we are safe here, and then as soon as possible, we will communicate out to everyone.  

     

    Overall, however, I am so proud of how our staff, students, and community responded in the situation. Go Bobcats!

    The Tularcitos Art Show Needs Volunteers!  

    We are looking for at least one parent from each class to help with the matting and hanging of their classes work.  Please come anytime (even if it's just an hour) on Monday - May 20th, Tuesday - May 21st, Wednesday - May 22nd.  We will be working in Bobcat Hall from 9:00am to 3:00pm on those days. What does this involve you ask?  One does not have to be an artist.  The job is simply taking one child's artwork at a time, pasting a mat to the back, adding a name tag, and pinning it to a display board. Many hands make light work so thank you in advance for your time and energy.

    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 3rd.   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. If a form is turned in with a teacher's name as a particular request, it will be discarded and not considered. Use the following link to submit your parent input form:

    https://forms.gle/J314HfXAf9EcCdAU9

     

    Spelling Bee 2024

    We want to give a special shout out to three of our students who participated at the county spelling bee this past weekend. Maisie, Sarah, and Faith all competed against the top spellers in the county. A special congratulations to Sarah and Faith for making it into the top 10 of all 4th/5th grade spellers in the county. You represented Tularcitos well! Bravo!

     

    Earth Week
     
    I hope everyone enjoyed Earth Week and that you were able to figure out ways you can be more environmentally responsible at home.  The cardboard creations students made were great to see.

    Bobcat Beach Cleanup: Saturday, April 20 - 9:30 am 

    In honor of Earth Day and a kick off to Zero waste week, interested Tularcitos families are invited to take care of the planet and pick up trash at Carmel beach with the Carmel Residents Association. Please see the attached flyer for details. 

    Be Cool, Walk or Roll to School: Monday, April 22

    Join fellow Bobcat Families the morning we return from break, Monday, April 22 (Earth Day), during our annual Be Cool & Walk or Roll to School! Start at either Holman or Paso Hondo (see flyer attached for more information), or start from any other neighborhood of convenience. The goal is to get outside and reduce our carbon footprint! Be sure to wear festive green, blue, or floral attire, and BYO gardening gloves to pick up trash along the way.

    Team Uniforms – Not at School

    This is a reminder that, while students are allowed to wear professional team jerseys, they are not allowed to wear their personal baseball or softball (or other sports) jerseys to school.  If they need the uniform for after school, please have them put it in their backpack and not wear it to school.  If you are wondering why… In the past we have had problems with competitiveness that takes place on the field enter school with students wearing their jerseys to school which is why they are not allowed.  

     

     

    TK and Kinder Registration for Next Year – Pass the word

    Team Uniforms – Not at School

    This is a reminder that, while students are allowed to wear professional team jerseys, they are not allowed to wear their personal baseball or softball (or other sports) jerseys to school.  If they need the uniform for after school, please have them put it in their backpack and not wear it to school.  If you are wondering why… In the past we have had problems with competitiveness that takes place on the field enter school with students wearing their jerseys to school which is why they are not allowed.  

     

    District Orchestra Festival

    Well done 5th grade orchestra students!  You put on a great concert on Wed night.  Band students, we are looking forward to your performance this coming Tuesday, Apr 2, at 7:00 at the Sunset Center.

     

    PTO Stampede

    The Tularcitos Stampede is our annual benefit dinner and auction on May 18, 2024 at Hidden Valley Performance Center. It’s an amazing adults-only party to raise money and celebrate our amazing community. This event, along with our back to school Bucks for Bobcats, is the only time our PTO asks for donations. 

     

    This years’ fundraising event features delicious BBQ from Jerome’s, local Alvarado Street Brewery beer, Joyce Wines and El Jefe margaritas, with live music from the Bubba Pickens Band.  Plus a Live and Silent Auction & Raffle. We will also be honoring our amazing neighbors, Carmel Valley Community Youth Center, with our 3rd annual Tularcitos Community Leader Award. 

     

    What makes this fundraiser so special is curating all the auction items from our amazing Tularcitos community- which means YOU! Artists, authors, wine makers, small and large businesses, woodworkers, chefs - we have an amazing community who supports us, and we love to support them. 

     

    We ask you to please consider sponsoring or donating an item that represents your business or family to our local community. All items will receive recognition and gratitude from our community for helping local students.

     

    Below are links to both sponsorship and donation forms.  They are also attached to this message.

    Colorful Mismatched Socks Day for World Down Syndrome Day

    On Thursday, March 21, we are encouraging all of our students to wear colorful mismatched socks to recognize World Down Syndrome Day. Every year on March 21 people around the world celebrate World Down Syndrome Day to bring awareness to Down Syndrome by wearing brightly colored mismatched socks.  March 21 (3/21) is symbolic because people with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome.  Socks were chosen because the karyotype of the chromosomes look like mismatched socks.  Feel free to join us by wearing mismatched socks during your day as well.  More information can be found on their website: https://www.worlddownsyndromeday.org/

    We only have a couple more weeks to collect pictures could still use some more pictures for the yearbook.   If you have any from any class parties, field trips, or any school event like Reading Night, please use the following directions to upload them to a google drive or email them to Tularcitosyearbook@gmail.com.

     

    TULAR YEARBOOK INSTRUCTIONS FOR GOOGLE DRIVE/TIPS: 

    Download the GOOGLE DRIVE app if you do not have it already

    *Instructions were tested via iPhone and will hopefully translate similarly to Android or other phones*

    The way the Tular Yearbook Photo Google Drive is organized...

    Google Drive ---> 'Shared with Me' ---> 'Parent Uploads' ---> Put your photos into the correct folder/event/category

    TIPS FOR GATHERING & UPLOADING YOUR PHOTOS FOR THE TULAR YEARBOOK...

    METHOD 1: (If you want your photos organized before uploading...)

    1. Make an album on your phone 'Tular Yearbook 2023-2024'

    2. Take and save photos into that album

    3. Upload your photos into the Tular 'Parent Uploads' folder per the directions below (METHOD 2)...

    METHOD 2: (If you do not mind scrolling through your photostream...)

    1. Click https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ujkfEpy4G2aiyiLOiJryTOKyIt7boDm0?usp=share_link

    2. Click on a folder/category/event then click the '+' sign on the bottom right

    3. Click 'UPLOAD' then click 'PHOTOS AND VIDEOS'

    4. Find & select your photos then click 'UPLOAD' 

    5. Repeat this process for the other folders

    Then by the end of the year we will have accumulated great photos & organized a great yearbook for the end of the year! So select your BEST pictures, preferably with big visible faces as the pictures end up much smaller in the yearbook and we want to be able to recognize who everyone is in the photos.

    Thanks for your help!
