    District Parent Survey

    Let’s show our Bobcat Pride.  I don’t really want this to be a competition, and I know we are a last minute community, but I do want to make sure that our voices are heard.  Unfortunately, right now we are one of the lowest participating schools in the district with just 6% of our families taking the survey so far.  Last week you received an email and link to the district's Parent Survey, which we do every other year to gather parent perceptions about how we are doing as a school district. The survey is an important tool for us to plan for continuous improvement. I want to highly encourage all Tular parents to spend the 10-15 minutes completing the survey so our district can get an accurate picture of our opinions.  Paper copies are also available in the office if you would rather complete the survey that way.

    Survey available online now at https://goo.gl/forms/4ajySARITuNdrVm33 

     

    Spelling Bee Results

    Congratulations to everyone who made it to the final round of our annual spelling bee.  Roy and Ella took first and second place and will represent Tularcitos in the county spelling bee on February 24.   Fiona and Ashton took third and fourth place and are our alternates.  Way to go Bobcats.


    Family Pictures Needed

    Dear parents, the yearbook team is looking for pictures of your child. Please submit JPEG photos that help to illustrate this year’s yearbook theme, "Home is where the heart is”. We would love to have pictures of your child participating in a 'family tradition', showing off an aspect of ‘home’ or ‘valley’, or pictures with family. One picture per student please, as there is limited space. You can offer a brief caption (short phrase please), for your student’s picture to help capture the meaning of the image. Please email me your photo and caption, including your student’s full name to linneaterranova@awellspring.net. Feel free to email me with questions as well.  The firm deadline for sending in pictures is 3/2/18.  Thanks for staying involved! - The Yearbook Team

     

    Facilities Master Planning – Envisioning the Future of CUSD Schools

    Our school district is currently engaged in the development of a Facilities Master Plan.  As you can imagine, this is a complex project that requires the consideration of many factors and how they impact the spaces and campuses of our district. All effective facility master plans are informed by first understanding the teaching and learning experiences that the school community wishes its schools to provide.  To that end, CUSD enlisted the help of David Jakes who has substantial experience in guiding this discussion for both school districts and universities. This week, Mr. Jakes was touring campuses, visiting classrooms, meeting with community, administrator, teacher, student, and parent groups to seek input. We are very excited about starting this process and greatly look forward to continuing to engage our community through this process over the coming many months.

     

    Lost and Found

    Our lost and found is overflowing.  We’ll be donating all items to charity over February break.  So make sure to look through it before break.

     

    Talent Show

    The Tularcitos Talent Show is tonight.  Act 1 will be at 5:30 and Act 2 will perform at 7:00.  We look forward to seeing all of the talent at our school and hope that many of our families will come support the students on stage.  A taco truck will be there from 5:00-7:30 selling dinner.

     

    Reading Week

    The week we get back from break will be Reading and No Screens Week.  We have lots of great happenings being planned including a book drive to support Read to Me (a local nonprofit that promotes early literacy), read-ins at lunch, an assembly by an author, and the big event, Reading Night which will be Thursday, March 1 at Tularcitos and Tuesday, February 27, in Cachagua.  Save the date now.  We’ll have book sales, a band, food, picture taking, and lots of great Tular teachers and community members reading some of their favorite books that night.

     

    Staying Healthy – From the Nurse’s office

    I would like to emphasize the importance of working together so that all our students stay as healthy as possible.  If one child comes to school sick, the illness spreads quickly to other students and to the staff, as well as family members. For this reason, please keep your child home if he/she has any of these symptoms and seek medical care if problem persists:

    • Fever, vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours
    • Nasal discharge that is profuse or colored
    • Red, inflamed eyes
    • Body rash, unless determined non-infectious by a Doctor
    • A cough which is severe or persistent
    • Less than 24 hours of being on an antibiotic

    Reminder: Your child must be “fever free” or “vomit free” for 24 hours without medicine (Motrin, Tylenol or Advil) before they can return to school.

     

    If a physician diagnoses your child with a contagious disease such as chickenpox, strep throat, or pink eye, please keep your child home and notify the school as soon as possible.  This information will help us identify new cases early and reduce the spread of illness.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.  620-8195 ext. 2393.  Thank you for your cooperation. Nurse Milla

     

    Message from our PTO

    Thank you to everyone who attended our last PTO meeting.  At that meeting, our district Chief Academic Officer, Suzie Deprez, came to present on the new California accountability system and stressed the importance of parents giving their feedback on the district through the survey that went out last week.  We have also started planning our Spring Fling and need some help.  If you love to throw a party, please contact Summer Hennessy.  Our next meeting will be March 7, at 8:45 in Bobcat Hall.

    Caring Assembly

    Thank you to our 2nd graders, Ms Amy, and our teachers for a wonderful Character Counts assembly today on caring.  As part of their curriculum, the 2nd graders learn about Mother Theresa and what she did for orphans.  To bring that learning to our students’ lives today, for their service project, our 2nd graders raise money for our local Kinship Center. This year they were able to raise over $1480.  The most ever!  Way to go 2nd graders!

     

    Talent Show

    The Tularcitos Talent Show is fast approaching.  Letters went out to participating students yesterday with information about the dress rehearsal, lunch performances, and the Talent Show Night.  We have 58 acts this year so we are structuring the dress rehearsal and performance a little differently.  The dress rehearsal will be Monday, February 5.  Act 1 will rehearse at 3:15 and Act 2 will rehearse at 4:45.  For the night of the show, Act 1 will be at 5:30 and Act 2 will perform at 7:00.  We look forward to seeing all of the talent at our school and hope that many of our families will come support the students on stage.

    Homework Survey Results

    Attached are the results of the homework survey families took in December.  Thank you to the 301 people who took it.  We got some great feedback.  While there are obviously different experiences, overall, people are happy with the changes we are making and the direction we are headed and really appreciate engaging in the conversation to ensure what we send home is meaningful and worth everyone’s time.


    FOR 5TH GRADE PARENTS ONLY:  Deadline 2/10/18

    Treat your child to lasting memories in the yearbook with Memory Pages (a.k.a Yearbook Recognition Ads).  These Ads are an exclusive offer for 5th graders, limited to one per student. We take creative liberties to design a one-of-a-kind Ad by adding a background (i.e. color or one of your photos) and by fine-tuning photo placement and size. Take the time today to honor your child: choose up to 4 photos, write your personal message or dedication to your child, and order online.  You may even have your child write something instead, like a reflection of their experience at Tularcitos or what they will miss or who they would like to thank. They might have something to say. The price for the Ad is $35.  Yearbooks must be purchased separately for $10. Ads must be ordered ONLINE by February 10, 2018.  If you are unable to order online, please e-mail Carolina Walbrun at carolina.walbrun@gmail.com  or contact the office and we will make arrangements to process your order. It would be great if each 5th grader was represented in the memory pages of the yearbook. To order the Recognition Ad online, go to:  www.jostens.com and click on “Yearbook Recognition Ads”.

This riveting film presents boys and young men as they struggle to navigate the road to manhood, as well as an illuminating view of societal issues, problems and solutions regarding how we are raising our boys - with a live panel discussion afterwards.  (disclaimer:  The Mask You Live In uses real-life examples and interviews and contains graphic images and language.  You should not bring your child with you to this film)

    On Wednesday, 1/31, at 5:30 members of the Tular staff and I will be doing a presentation to our Board of Education on progress toward the district goals for this year.  This is a fun time to celebrate what we are doing.  Parents are welcome to come.  The board meeting will be in Bobcat Hall that night.

    Reporting Suspicious People/Activities

    If you see suspicious people or activities happening around Tularcitos, please call the sheriff and notify the office.  Before school this morning a local homeless person was in the CV Park and handed out some magic cards to students as they came to school.  When other students saw the person handing out the magic cards, they went up to the person to get one as well.  Thankfully, nothing happened.  The sheriff was called and came to talk to the man.  The sheriff knows the individual and they do not consider the person dangerous.  However, we will be taking this opportunity in classrooms to remind students about how to behave around strangers.  I would highly recommend you do the same at home.  Thankfully, we had numerous people report the person to our office and some people called 911.  I want to encourage everyone to do both of those things when there is a suspicious person or event going on around campus because you are the first hand reporter and can give the 911 dispatcher much better information than we can provide when we call.  Thank you to everyone for watching out for our students and families and making sure we are all safe.  If definitely takes a village.

This riveting film presents boys and young men as they struggle to navigate the road to manhood, as well as an illuminating view of societal issues, problems and solutions regarding how we are raising our boys - with a live panel discussion afterwards.  A must see for all parents of boys and girls!  

     

    Yearbooks are now selling for $15.  Please go to www.Jostens.com to order yours today.

     

    YEARBOOK BLING:  Deadline 2/2/18

    Add some sparkle to your yearbook this year.  Bedazzle the cover with your child’s name in gold foil and maybe add his or her grade.  Add a touch of personality to the yearbook by choosing icons like dance, art, choir, gymnastics, skateboarding, and martial arts just to name a few.  You may personalize online until 2/2/18.  Personalization is an extra cost in addition to the yearbook cost.  Prices are:  $7 for your child’s name and $4 for each icon.  About half of the proceeds from the personalization will go towards offsetting yearbook production costs.  So, this is a great way to raise funds for the yearbook!  If you choose to opt out of personalization, students may write his or her name on the inside of the yearbook cover.

     

    FOR 5TH GRADE PARENTS ONLY:  Deadline 2/10/18

    Treat your child to lasting memories in the yearbook with Memory Pages (a.k.a Yearbook Recognition Ads).  These Ads are an exclusive offer for 5th graders, limited to one per student. We take creative liberties to design a one-of-a-kind Ad by adding a background (i.e. color or one of your photos) and by fine-tuning photo placement and size. Take the time today to honor your child: choose up to 4 photos, write your personal message or dedication to your child, and order online.  You may even have your child write something instead, like a reflection of their experience at Tularcitos or what they will miss or who they would like to thank. They might have something to say. The price for the Ad is $35.  Yearbooks must be purchased separately for $10. Ads must be ordered ONLINE by February 10, 2018.  If you are unable to order online, please e-mail Carolina Walbrun at carolina.walbrun@gmail.com or contact the office and we will make arrangements to process your order. It would be great if each 5th grader was represented in the memory pages of the yearbook. To order the Recognition Ad online, go to:  www.jostens.com and click on “Yearbook Recognition Ads”.

     

    SPONSORS:  Deadline 2/16/18

    Calling all Yearbook sponsors!

    We are currently seeking sponsors who would like to advertise their business in the yearbook.  We offer the following: 1/8 size Ad for $100 and we have 5 spots for a ¼ size Ad for $200. To order the Business Ad online, go to:  www.jostens.com and click on “Yearbook Business Ads”.  You may upload photos and text for your Ad.  Paper order forms will be available in the office also. If you would like to recreate your business ad from last year, please e-mail pia_garneau@yahoo.com.

    New School Dashboard

    Last week the California Department of Education launched a new website designed to help communities across the state access information about K-12 districts and schools. The California School Dashboard features reports on multiple measures including English language arts and mathematics test scores, high school graduation rates, English learner progress, suspension rates and chronic absenteeism. The Dashboard is California’s new school accountability system.  It has been in development for over three years and replaces the API (Academic Performance Index) that was in place from 1999-2013.  The Dashboard is how performance data on the state and local indicators that the State Board of Education included in this new accountability tool is shown publicly. This is one set of data we will use as we review and update our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) over the next few months.  Our school and district are committed to high standards and this information will help us in our efforts of continuous improvement.  To learn more about California’s accountability and continuous improvement efforts, visit http://www.cde.ca.gov/dashboard/  If you have questions about Tularcitos’ indicators, feel free to email or call me.

     

     

    Hope you have had a great start to 2018!

    We Need Your Homework Feedback

    As most of you know, different grade levels are trying different things this year with their homework.  Now that we are almost half way through the year (Can you believe it?), we would greatly appreciate your feedback on what the homework has been like for your child and family this year.  Please take this brief survey (only 13 questions), about your experience with homework this year before Friday, Dec 22.  As we strive to make our homework as meaningful as possible, we can only do this with your feedback.  My goal is to get at least 80% of our families to take this survey.  With so many differing experiences and expectations out there, If only a few people take it, the feedback we get will not be as meaningful.  So please take a few minutes to let us know what the homework experience has been like for you this year.  While I know this will take a little extra time, if you are a family with multiple students, I would greatly appreciate it if you could take time to complete a different survey for each child.  If that feels like too much time, I understand, so please take the survey on your child that you feel like most represents your family’s experience. Thank you in advance for your time and thoughts!  Again, please complete this survey before Friday, Dec 22.   I’ll be sharing the results in January.

    CHS Foundation for Scholarships
    Help the Carmel High School Foundation meet its goal of $1,000,000 for the scholarship endowment! College is expensive, and all of our elementary kids will be finishing high school before you know it. Investing in the endowment now will mean more scholarships for our kids when they graduate from Carmel High! Make a donation at carmelhighschoolfoundation.org or make a check out to "CHSF" and mail it to CHSF P.O. Box 223288 Carmel, CA  93922. Thank you so much!

     

    Parenting Class and Support Group coming to Tularcitos?

    Loving Solutions is a parenting class and support program for raising tough children available through Carmel Unified’s partnership with Monterey County Behavioral Health.  It looks like we have had enough interest to run this class starting in January, so if you are interested, please contact our counselor, Amy Bullas at abullas@carmelunified.org. Loving Solutions would be offered one night a week for ten weeks.  Child care (for those out of diapers) and pizza would be provided to children while parents are attending.  An attached flier includes more details.
