Don’t Miss This

  • May 22 5:00-7:00: Tular Open House.  Dinner served from 5:00-6:00.  Garden open from 6:00-7:00.  Art Show open from 5:00-7:00.  Classrooms open from 6:00-7:00


Ending Hunger in Monterey County – Food Drive

Did you know ending hunger in Monterey County IS POSSIBLE? Well, it is and we can pitch in and be a part of the solution.  The third grade classes are going to begin their Monterey County Food Bank service project on Monday, May 13th. Please bring in non-perishable foods May 13-24th. Barrels will be out during Open House too, May 22nd. After collecting food at Tularcitos for two weeks, students will then go to the Monterey County Food Bank and help process the donations and learn about solving problems locally.


Father Daughter Family Dance

We will be holding our first Father Daughter Family dance May 31, 7:00-9:00 in Bobcat Hall. The goal of the dance is to celebrate the relationship between fathers and daughters. However, we realize that families look different for people. So whether our girls bring a father, uncle, grandfather, friend of family or any special person in their life, we invite all of the girls to attend. Between great music, dancing, and desserts, it should be a memorable, celebratory and fun-filled evening!  There is no charge for the dance because we want everyone to be able to attend, but we will be asking for a $10 donation to help cover the cost, as well as asking people to bring a dessert to contribute to the dessert table for everyone to enjoy.  A flier will be coming home next week with more information.  Any questions, please contact John Burton at



Bobcat Art Show Volunteers Needed

All our Artwork is ready to go!  Thank you to everyone who came in and helped out.  Now we just need a few more volunteers to help set up before and take down after the event.  Please sign up in the link below.  Any time you can contribute will be helpful to the art show.!/showSignUp/60b094badad23a0fd0-artshowcase


Spring Sing Concert

Thank you to Mr. Short and our Kinder, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students for an enjoyable and lively concert last night! It was great to see you all up on stage celebrating our wonderful music program.


Library Books Due

All library books are due Thursday, May 23.  Please make sure to turn any library books you may have back into the library by then.


Important Registration Information for Next Year:

Online registration for returning students; enrollment for new students; and proof of residency for incoming 6th and 9th graders

1) Online Registration for Returning Students - (Parent Data Confirmation) 

Families have been asking, "Don't we usually register our returning students for next year about this time of year on Infosnap?" In previous years, that was true, but this year we are changing the annual online registration process from Infosnap to Aeries. In the new process, now called "Parent Data Confirmation," you'll register your returning students during the summer (unless they are entering Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten -- see Enrolling New Students below). We are planning to roll out Parent Data Confirmation in July and early August before the school year starts. 

In the new Parent Data Confirmation process, you will just log into Aeries and confirm or update the existing information about your child. You'll also acknowledge receipt of required annual notifications and policies -- and that's it! For Parents of CMS and CHS students, you'll use your existing Aeries account. For parents at other schools, you will set up an online account in Aeries and then access Parent Data Confirmation from there. We'll be sending full details by email in July.

2) Enrolling New Students, which includes all Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten 

The online enrollment window is now open for students who are new to the district. Our definition of "new" also includes all Transitional Kindergartners and Kindergartners, even if they have previously attended a district school, If you have a new student or TK/K student to enroll, please check with the school registrar, who will collect the information needed and then set you up to do online enrollment.

3) Proof of residency for incoming 6th and 9th graders 

May is still residency affidavit month for students who are changing schools, such as all incoming 6th and 9th graders. If you have not already submitted your proof of residency, you can find the instructions and forms here:


Message from our PTO

Thank you to everyone who volunteered in our PTO this year.  We had a lot of fun supporting Tularcitos students and staff and helping build our community.  At our meeting on Wednesday we voted in our board for next year.  They are:   President Heaven Tempalski, VP Lauren Robertson, Secretary Gina Nucci Hincks, Treasurer Lauren Collins, and Room Parent Liaison Hilary Hamilton.  Thank you to all of you for stepping up again this coming year.  Next year we will be looking for people to shadow our board to learn about all they do and then step into those roles the following year.  We hope you have a great end to the school year and look forward to working with all of you again next year to keep Tularcitos the amazing school that it is.
