March 2015

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

PROGRESS REPORTS

 

Term 5 grading period will end on Friday, April 3rd. Please encourage your child to check their School loop grades routinely to ensure responsibility, success and on-going effort. We are very impressed with this group of 7th and 8th graders. They have shown strong ethics with our RISE mantra and as their Principal, I couldn’t be more proud!

 

DROP IN HOMEWORK CENTER / CYBER CAFÉ

We are offering a drop in homework center from 2:35 -3:30 PM, Monday – Thursday. Late busses will run on Mondays, as well for this service. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this time in the school library with free technology access, use of computers and a teacher readily available for support. Our goal is to provide an hour after school for those that wish to get work done, receive support or obtain technology usage. Each day, a teacher in each core subject area will be in the center. (Monday: Math, Tuesday: Social Studies/History, Wednesday: Science and Thursday: Language Arts). Thank you for encouraging your child to stay afterschool from time to time, as needed.

 

SCHOOL CLOSED

April 6th -10th is our Annual Spring Break and therefore our school is closed for the week. Please note that Friday, April 3 is a regular school day. We hope you all enjoy a fabulous week off. Several of our 8th grade students will be in Washington DC enjoying our nation’s capital. What an amazing opportunity they will have!

 

STATE SMARTER BALANCE TESTING

Please review the assessment calendar and dates in regards to the new version of State Testing, also known as the Smarter Balance Testing. Our testing window will May 4th -22nd. Please try to avoid any appointments or days out through that time, so that students have the ideal testing window. More to come next month.

 

8th GRADE GRADUATION

Our three intermediates (Herman, Davis and Bernal) will share a graduation location for the 2015 group of 8th grade students. Bernal’s ceremony will begin at 10:00 AM, as we are first in the rotation, and will conclude at 11:15 AM. Graduation will take place at the Oak Grove High School Football Field off Blossom Hill Road on June 11th, the official last day of the school year. 8th grade students will be expected to be on the field by 9:30 AM and will NOT report to Bernal that day.

 

School IS in session for our 7th grade students from 8:00 AM -11:00 AM on June 11th. Please be aware of this unique schedule on the official LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

 

 

EVERY CHILD SUCCEEDING AWARD

Congratulations to Kylie Vu, an 8th grade Bernal Student, for being selected for the Oak Grove Management Association Award entitled “Every Student Succeeding.” This award is given to a student who has overcome personal challenges yet still excels in school. We are very proud of Kylie’s spirit and on-going excellence to make great choices and continue her zest for life.

January Newsletter

 

January 2015

 

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

 

SEMESTER REPORTS

January marks the end of our first semester, and official semester grades will be mailed home the week of January 12th. These semester grades represent an average of the first three 6-week report periods of this school year. If you do not receive a report card in the mail by January 31st, please contact the school. It is very important that students who have a semester grade of “D” or “F” in any subject area review our graduation requirements in the Bernal Student Handbook. We have several safety nets and interventions starting up and will be available to help students get their grade point average and study skills up to a “C” average or higher. Students and parents should contact their classroom teachers or counselors for more information. If your student receives less than a 1.5 overall GPA, please contact the Counseling Department so that a plan of action can be developed to assist your student in improving his/her grades.

 

Remember that your child’s progress in school is a process. Report cards show where a student stands at one point in time; they’re not the final word. A report card is intended to help you see where your child is succeeding in school, and where your child needs some help. It’s a starting point for a discussion on schoolwork between you and your child. Don’t forget that you can access your student’s grades and assignments, as well as your child’s teacher on School Loop. (www.bernalis.schoolloop.com)

 

ATTENDANCE

Please report all absences to the office, so we know that your child is excused with an illness and /or appointment. This ensures safety for all and we can track any health concerns and flu bugs going around. Let’s continue to stay healthy for 2015 with plenty of rest, healthy food choices and cleanliness. Our AMAZING custodial crew spent the holiday vacation sanitizing our entire campus so that we all arrived back with a fresh, clean start. Thank you, Doug and Ben.

 

SCHOOL CLOSED

School will be closed THIS Friday, January 16th for teacher training and THIS Monday, January 19th an observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Students will enjoy a 4 day weekend!

 

 

RISE

Our students are exemplifying what it means to be a positive and productive student here at Bernal with the RISE expectations (Responsibility, Integrity, Respect and Safety). The following classrooms earned popcorn parties for the Responsibility in learning. Congratulations to Mr. Polentz (all classes), Mr. Guevarra (3 classes), and Mrs. Huang (all classes).

 

MEETINGS

There will not be a School Site or Home & School Club Meeting this month. We hope to see you all in February.

 

TESTING

Students will be testing in Language Arts and Math for their interim assessments beginning January 29 –February 12th. Please ensure that students do their best by sending them off with a positive message, breakfast and sleep. This assessment will be on the computer and will prepare them for the new style of state wide testing entitled SBAC (Smarter Balance Assessment).

 

STUDENT SAFETY

Students are expected to leave campus by 2:45 PM each day unless they are remaining after school with a teacher or participating in an afterschool sports or club under the supervision of an adult. If a student remains after school, they must be under the direct supervision of a teacher for the duration of their stay. If a student rides the bus, they must obtain a late bus pass signed by the teacher, in order to ride the Activity Bus (late bus). Please note that the District does not provide a late bus on Mondays or Fridays. Thank you for your support.

 

UPGRADES

Our library, soon to be cyber café, has acquired new computer work stations for students to access during the instructional day or after school. Furthermore, we will have a drop in Homework center, starting soon, for students that need a quiet place to stay for the entire hour after school. The start date will be February 2 and will be available 4 days a week. There will be a specialty teacher per day. Math Monday, Tuesday History, and so forth. More information will follow shortly.

Estimados Padres y Tutores,

 

 

REPORTES DEL SEMESTRE

Enero marca el final de nuestro primer semestre, y las calificaciones oficiales del semestre se enviarán por correo a casa la semana del 12 de enero. Estas calificaciones del semestre representan un promedio de los primeros tres periodos de reportes de 6-semanas del año escolar. Si no recibe el reporte de calificaciones por correo para el 31 de enero, por favor comuníquese con la escuela. Es muy importante que los estudiantes que tienen calificación de “D” o “F” en cualquier materia, revisen nuestros requisitos de graduación en el Manual de Estudiantes de la Escuela Bernal. Tenemos varias redes de seguridad e intervenciones que van a empezar y estarán disponibles para ayudar a los estudiante a obtener un promedio de calificaciones y habilidades de estudio hacia un promedio de “C” o mejor. Los estudiantes y sus padres deberán de comunicarse con sus maestros de clases o consejeras para mayor información. Se les pide a los padres que firmen y regresen una copia de las calificaciones a la escuela con el estudiante. Si su estudiante recibe menos de 1.5 GPA promedio general, por favor comuníquese con el Departamento de Consejería para crear un plan de acción para ayudar al estudiante a mejorar sus calificaciones. Recuerde que el progreso de su hijo/a en la escuela es un proceso. Las boletas de calificaciones muestran que un estudiante se encuentra en un punto en el tiempo; no son la última palabra. La intención de las calificaciones es para ayudarle a ver en qué está teniendo éxito su hijo/a en la escuela y en qué necesita ayuda. Es un punto de partida para que usted y su hijo/a hablen sobre el trabajo escolar. Recuerde que por medio de school loop, (www.bernalis.schoolloop.com) usted puede tener acceso a las calificaciones y tareas del estudiante, así como también a los maestros de su hijo/a.

 

ASISTENCIA

Por favor reporte todas las ausencias a la oficina, para que sepamos que su hijo/a está ausente debido a una enfermedad y/o una cita. Es por seguridad de todos y podemos monitorear cualquier preocupación de salubridad o gripas que estén pasando. Hay que continuar estando sanos para el 2015 con mucho descanso, elegir comida saludable y aseo personal. Nuestro INCREÍBLE personal de mantenimiento pasó las vacaciones desinfectando todo el campo escolar para que regresemos y empecemos frescos y limpios. Gracias a Doug y Ben.

 

NO HABRÁ CLASES

No habrá clases ESTE viernes, 16 de enero los maestros estarán en entrenamiento y ESTE lunes, 19 de enero se observará el día del Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ¡Los estudiantes disfrutarán de un fin de semana de 4 días!

 

RISE

Las siguientes aulas lograron su fiesta de palomitas de maíz por su Responsabilidad para aprender. Felicidades al Sr. Polentz (todas sus clases), el Sr. Guevarra (3 clases) y la Sra. Huang (todas sus clases).

 

JUNTAS

No habrá junta del Club de Casa y Escuela este mes. Esperamos verlos a todos en febrero.  

 

PRUEBAS

SEGURIDAD ESTUDIANTIL

Se espera que los estudiantes salgan del campo escolar para las 2:45 PM todos los días a menos de que se queden en la escuela con algún maestro o participen en un deporte después de la escuela bajo la supervisión de un adulto. Si el estudiante se queda después de la escuela, debe de estar bajo la supervisión directa de un maestro durante su tiempo en el campo escolar. Si el estudiante toma el transporte escolar, debe de obtener un pase de transporte más tarde (late bus) para que pueda tomar el transporte de Actividades (más tarde/ late bus).  Por favor tome nota que el Distrito no provee servicio de transporte tarde los lunes y los viernes. Gracias por su apoyo.
