    Last Bobcat Bulletin of the the Year (and find out how to help in the garden this summer)
     

    Good Afternoon Bobcat Families,

     

    Happy last day of school.   It has been a wonderful year, and I am already excited for next year, although very much looking forward to summer as well.  To our 5th graders, have a great time at CMS and remember to keep making the day better for those around you.  To any of you who are moving, we wish you the best in your new school and community and hope you can share your Bobcat spirit wherever you go.  To everyone returning, we are looking forward to seeing you next year and making it the best year yet.  I hope you have a wonderful, fun, relaxing summer.  Our first day of school next year is Wed, Aug 7.  We will see you then!

     

    Summer Work in the Bobcat Garden Needs Our Help!

    There are 8-10 raised beds in the garden that need to be restored and readied for fall planting by the time students return to school in August.  If you are able to volunteer any amount of time to help with restoring the beds or any other garden tasks over the summer break, please email our new Garden teacher, Suzanne Laurens at slaurens@carmelunified.org

     

     

    Happy Summer and Go Bobcats!

    Yearbook Sad News

    Unfortunately, our yearbook was not done in time this year (we are restructuring things next year to guarantee it is done on time) so we will not have yearbooks to distribute the last week of school.  I am very sorry and feel bad that students won’t have them before we go to summer.  So that students still have the chance to get classmates’ signatures, we have created small booklets that students will get next week.  Since the yearbooks will not be delivered to us until sometime over the summer, we are having the yearbook company mail the 5th graders’ yearbooks home over the summer.  For all the other students, we are going to have a distribution day after the first day of school next year where students will go back to their previous classes with their yearbooks and students can see their teachers and classmates and get their yearbooks signed then.  For anyone who is moving after this year, we will need to make sure we get your new address and we will mail them to you when we return from summer.  Again, I am sorry we did not have them for the students this year.  We are making adjustments for next year.

     

    Next Year’s Campout and Back to School Pool Party

    We will be holding our annual Bobcat Campout on Aug 23 and 24 next year.  This is the third week of school so we need to get our planning committee together now.  The event is mostly planned and ready to go, we just need five to six people to help take on smaller key roles during the event and help with purchasing supplies.   It is an easy event to be a part of and still help out.  If you would like to help make the Campout a great event, please email Mr Peterson at rpeterson@carmelunified.org.  Next year we will be combining our Campout with our PTO’s Back to School Pool Party.   So on that day, the CV Pool will be open after school for families to come enjoy the pool.  For those of you who have not done our Campout before, on Aug 23 anyone who wants to campout for the night comes back to Tular anytime after 3:30, sets up a tent on our lawn in designated spaces, hangs out on campus playing on the playground or goes swimming at the pool.  Families will enjoy dinner (either purchased from the pool or bring your own), smores and movie at night, sleep in their tents, and partake in a pancake breakfast Saturday morning.  It is a fun night and another great way to hang out as a community.  For those of you who do not want to spend the night, but want to join the rest of the festivities, you can sign up to do that as well.  

     

     

    PTO Update
     
    We hope that everyone enjoys the last week of school.  See you next year!  Our first events next year will be the Welcome Back Social in Bobcat Hall the first day of school at 8:30 and then we will have our annual Campout and Back to School Pool Party (come to one or both) on Friday, Aug 23 – Saturday, Aug 24.  Put both of these events on your calendar now.

    The Bobcat Trikathlon is Back!

    Next week we are bringing back our Bobcat Trikathlon. It is a super silly/fun event that highlights our swim unit we do in PE. The kids are going to be sent off in heats in the pool and will complete 4 laps. They will then quickly put on some clothes and shoes and race up to lower playground. From there, they will hop onto the kindergarten Trikes and race around a set track at Tular. Finally, they will complete the course with running two laps around the track! 

    There is no pressure in this event and absolutely zero competition. The kids are allowed to go as fast or slow as they want. The only thing we are hoping is that the kids are laughing trying to push these little Trikes around Tular. 

    This year we are hoping that you can join in on the fun! Find the date and time in which your child is doing the Trikathlon and come cheer them on and watch them race around Tular! Make sure to take lots of photos!

     

    4th Grade Trikathlon: Wednesday 5/29 10:45am-12:30pm 

    3rd Grade Trikathlon: Thursday 5/30 10:45am-12:30pm

    5th Grade Trikathlon: Friday 5/31 9:00am-10:30am

    From Mr. A

     

    Highly Successful Stampede – Thank you!
     In addition to just being a great event and time to celebrate as a community, we had a very successful Stampede this year. Thanks to our generous community sponsors & incredible Tular Families, the Stampede generated over $100,000! We are so grateful to our talented planning committee, led by Chair Gina Nucci, for their dedication in making this event so successful. There is still time to support our ball field renovation project (this year’s fund-a-need to put in a proper backstop and dugouts), as well as participate in back-to-school parties (fitness brunch and/or fiesta). More information will be posted to the PTO website. Thank you all for your unwavering support.

     

    Open House
     We hope everyone had a great time at this week’s Open House. It was fun to see the students showing off their amazing work.   I, again, want to thank all of you for your support and especially want to thank those of you who volunteered throughout the year.  We cannot have the amazing school we have without our volunteers – you make it all happen.  If you were unable to meet our new Bobcat Mascot, don’t worry! We will have additional opportunities available in the future. Please reach out to Mr. Peterson of Beth Henshaw with any suggestions for our new mascot.

    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!

    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.

    You should have received information from your Room Parent(s) regarding Staff Appreciation Week, May 6-10. Please see the attached flyer as a reminder of our campus-wide themed staff appreciation days. We also need help decorating the campus so that all of our staff feel (and see) the love. Please click HERE to offer an extra hand in decorating a door (doors measure 44 inches wide and 79 inches tall). The campus will be open over the weekend, May 4-5, to ensure there is enough time. Please reach out to Room Parent Liaison Kristen Rianda with any questions or concerns: knrianda@gmail.com

     

    Staff Appreciation Luncheon

    In addition to our themed days, we will be treating staff to lunch on Thursday, May 9. Please click HERE to bring a food item to share with them, and/or to help with yard duty that day. Your participation allows the staff a much needed break from their normal duties. Thank you in advance for your participation.

    Please join us next week, Thursday, May 2 at 6:30 pm at CVCYC or on Zoom, for our final PTO meeting of the school year.

    Earth Day Celebrations
     
    When we return from break, we have a number of Earth Day activities happening around Tular.  Here are some to be aware of:

     

    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.
     

    Throughout the week our students will be participating in different activities encouraging them to be good stewards of our environment and resources. Please see the attached fliers for more information.  


     PTO Update
     
    Thank you for another great PTO meeting last week. Meeting Minutes will be posted to our new website soon: https://tularcitos-pto.square.site/
     If you would like to submit your name for one of our four Executive Positions—President, Vice President, Treasurer, or Secretary—please do so no later than Friday, April 19 to be considered for next year. Thank you.

    Also, our PTO was going to host another Movie in the Park, but Carmel Youth Baseball is also hosting a movie, so rather than double-up, if you are looking to attend a movie in the park, Carmel Youth Baseball is hosting the Rookie of the Year movie (starting at dusk) from 5-9 on Friday, April 26 at the Carmel Valley Park.  This is free to the public. Concessions and food will be available for purchase.
