Parent Informational Meeting for Math Common Core
Common Core Standards are here....now what?...what does that even mean? With all the changes taking place in regards to curriculum, pedagogy, and standards many are wanting to know what are the implications? More importantly, how can I support my child with their math? As a result the district has planned two opportunities to be exposed to common core math and ask the questions that many have wanted to know. I am hopeful you can make one of these two events:
Tuesday, February 25 @ King Middle School 6:00PM
Thursday, February 27 @ Lincoln Middle School 6:00PM
REMINDERS FOR KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE PARENTS
California State law state requires that all children entering first grade in a California public or private school have a comprehensive health examination or waiver completed within 18 months prior to or within 90 days after the first day of first grade. State law also requires that children have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) within 12 months prior to or by May 31 of their children’s first year in public school, whether through kindergarten or first grade. Please turn in the completed forms to the office.
Good health is vital to learning and check-ups ensure that children start school healthy and ready to learn. Families unable to pay for examinations for their children may be eligible to receive no-cost health checkups through the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program. Families can learn more by calling 1-800-675-2229.
