A Message from the Principal

     I write this letter upon our return from Spring Break. The students and staff have renewed their energy for the final push of this educational year. We have many activities going this month so let’s get right to them. Monday the 16th, students will take their class photos for the end of the year yearbook. Stay posted on when and how you can purchase this year’s memories. The 16th is also the evening of the BUG (Bringing Up Grades) Dinner. Students in the third through fifth grade classes will be selected and recognized at this annual dinner sponsored by the Shasta Dam Kiwanis. Fifth graders will be taking a field trip on the 18th to the planetarium to take a look at the stars. Our monthly Site Council meeting happens on Thursday the 19th starting at 2:20. All community members are welcome to attend to learn about academic progress and school safety. Our fourth and fifth graders will participate in the Bike Rodeo during their PE classes on the 20th. Our monthly assembly is also scheduled for the 20th. Come join the multitude of students who will be receiving awards for attendance, academics, character and athletics. 4th/5th grade receive awards at 8:10, kindergarten and 1st grades get their awards at 8:45, followed by 2nd/3rd at 9:20.

   Grand Oaks will participate in the second annual fundraiser, Family Fun Night in the Great Outdoors on Thursday the 26th from 6:00-7:30. Parent Club is organizing the carnival games and outdoor activities. Adventure awaits as students win tickets for some great raffle prizes. Food will be available at the carnival and candy donations are gladly accepted for five free carnival tickets.

   The end of April and the beginning of May kicks off our end of the year assessments. Third, fourth and fifth graders will take their statewide CAASPP test. This will be followed by the NWEA assessment in reading and Math for all Grand Oaks students in early May. Get involved in your child’s education. Encourage them to do their best, eat well and sleep comfortably during the weeks of testing.

 Enjoy the spring weather as we look to complete this school year.
