If there is anything standing in your way of getting your child to school every day, on time, the best way that we can fully support your child is through communication. Please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the school staff. Come in to talk with us, set up an appointment, call, or email at any time. Thank you for your efforts in all that you do as parents to help your child succeed!

 

¡¡La escuela ya está en marcha, y su asistencia también debería estarlo!! Si hay cualquier cosa que les impida llevar a sus hijos a la escuela cada día, puntualmente, la mejor manera que tenemos de apoyar a sus hijos es mediante la comunicación. Por favor, no duden en contactar con cualquier miembro del personal escolar. Vengan a hablar con nosotros, concierten una cita, llamen o envíen un email en cualquier momento. ¡Gracias por sus esfuerzos en todo lo que hacen como padres para ayudar a que su hijo/a tenga éxito!

Worldwide, nationally and locally, humans are being challenged by forces of nature: fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. Close to home, we know the anxiety and uncertainty people feel when their world is changed overnight, such as the earthquake of Aug. 24, 2014. So our empathy for those in Texas, Florida, Mexico and other places is real and heartfelt.

 

Many in our community are uncertain and anxious due to the announced changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.  

 

Our Board of Trustees, as well as the County Supervisors and municipal councils, resolved in April 2017: “We aspire to be a model for inclusion and equity for all populations, including immigrants, refugees, and other newcomers and are committed to supporting the ongoing inclusion and long-term economic and social integration of newcomers, and to demonstrate values of unity and acceptance.”

 

We will continue to follow the policies put in place nationally, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, until new policies or laws are enacted, and remain committed to our vision of preparing all of our community’s children for college and careers in the 21st century.

 

El NVUSD se compromete a servir a todos los estudiantes

 

A nivel mundial, nacional y local, los seres humanos están siendo desafiados por las fuerzas de la naturaleza: incendios, huracanes y otros elementos. Cerca de casa, somos conscientes de la ansiedad y la incertidumbre que la gente siente cuando su mundo cambia de la noche a la mañana, como pasó con el terremoto del 24 de agosto de 2014. Así que nuestra empatía por aquellas personas que viven en Texas, Florida, México y otros lugares es real y sentida.

 

Muchas personas de nuestra comunidad tienen incertidumbre y ansiedad debido a los cambios anunciados sobre la normativa Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés).  

 

Nuestra Mesa del Consejo Directivo, así como los Supervisores del Condado y consejos municipales, resolvieron en abril de 2017: “Aspiramos a ser un ejemplo de inclusión y equidad para todas las poblaciones, inclusive inmigrantes, personas refugiadas y otros recién llegados, y estamos comprometidos con el hecho de apoyar la inclusión económica y social continua y a largo plazo de los recién llegados, y con el hecho de demostrar los valores de la unidad y la aceptación.”

 

Continuaremos siguiendo las normativas que se implementen a nivel nacional, inclusive la Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles, hasta que se promulguen nuevas normativas o leyes, y permanecemos comprometidos con nuestra visión de preparar a todos los niños y niñas de nuestra comunidad para la universidad y las profesiones del siglo 21.

In addition to protecting yourself from getting sick, the vaccine can prevent you from spreading the flu to your family and other people who are more likely to have severe illness.

AMERICAN CANYON — Canyon Oaks Elementary School didn’t settle for a typical spring concert: Instead, they showcased students and staff alike Friday with the 2017 COES Talent Show for the fourth year in a row.

 

The multipurpose room was filled with chatter as students either sang songs or competed for prizes for individual talent and classroom participation. 

 

We started it last year and the students had so much fun, and so do the staff,” said Principal Kay Vang. “It’s all about individuals, classes and staff getting together to have some extra fun near the end of the school year. The kids have been so excited.”

 

The students sat on the floor to watch their teachers and peers perform a variety of numbers. When the “Teacher Feature” began with many of the teachers performing a synchronized dance performance, the students could not contain their laughter.

On Wednesday, March 1 we will be participating in the National Read Across America event! From 9 am to 11 am, Canyon Oaks will be welcoming guest readers on our campus to share their favorite story. Students are being asked to participate by either dressing as if they were their favorite children’s book character or wearing their favorite reading pajamas. Students will also be allowed to bring a stuffed animal to read to that day.

 

As a guideline for dressing as their favorite book character, students should be able to state the book the character is from, the author of the book, and their character’s name.  Students are not allowed to bring props that would be considered zero-tolerance items (i.e. weapons, swords, plastic knives, etc...).


To help you in your pursuit of the right book, here is a brief list of books that you can reference for ideas. Of course, any of the fairy tale books would work as well!

 

1). The Cat in the Hat                
2). Pete the Cat                 
3). Madeline                        
4). Harry Potter                    
5). The Hobbit                    
6). Where the Wild Things Are            
7). Little Red Riding Hood                
8). Pippi Longstocking

9). A Bad Case of Stripes

10). One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish            

11). Pinkalicious

12). Junie B. Jones  

13). The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

14). Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

15). Curious George

16). The Hungry Caterpillar

 

The purpose of this day is to share the love for reading that Dr. Seuss exhibited throughout his lifetime. Students are encouraged to be lifelong readers, and we wish to support this goal by honoring Dr. Seuss on this day. 

 

Thank you for your support and participation in making this day fun! As Dr. Seuss would say, “The more you read, the more you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
