    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.

     

    Carmel Valley Angel Project Thank You

    We were able to stuff 115 stockings with all of our Bobcat generosity.   Thank you to all of the families who contributed items to our stocking stuffer drive this year. 

     

    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.

     

    Message from our PTO

    Our next meeting will be January 10, at 8:45 in Bobcat Hall.  If you would like to help in any way please contact Ola Rocha (PTO President) at heatholavt@yahoo.com.

    Saturday, Dec. 9th, from 9 a.m. on the CVCYC is asking for volunteers to help assist us with activities during the time when Santa is at the Community Center.

    Areas where we need help consists of: ticket taking for the various activities, keeping the line for Santa appointments orderly, clean-up, and extras for troubleshooting if needed and any extra hands will make it more fun for all.  This does not have to be an all-day commitment.....anywhere from an hour or two or more...whatever you can contribute is greatly appreciated!
