About Us

Green Acres Elementary School has been recognized by the state of California as a Gold Ribbon Award School based on our literacy program. At Green Acres, we believe in the importance of educating the whole child and hope to ignite a passion for learning by incorporating art, music, physical education, digital skills, and our Life Lab Garden into the curriculum.
 
Reading is a priority in our school. Our Response to Intervention (RTI) Program provides time each day dedicated for reading instruction geared to meet the individual needs of students. An important goal for our students is that they learn to communicate their thinking orally and in writing, and to be able to apply their learning to novel situations.
 
Green Acres is home to a committed staff that works together and models the collaborative spirit we wish to inspire in our students. We hope to foster a growth mindset in our community, so that challenges can be routinely viewed as opportunities for learning. We want our students to learn that perseverance pays off in meeting personal goals, along with our rigorous academic standards.
 
Our staff is committed to the safety and well-being of all students. We use Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) at our school, which includes school-wide rules and common expectations for all students. We have a counselor on staff who organizes social skills groups throughout the year. Our child nutrition program is second to none, with fresh food prepared daily in our district. We have a recess coach who organizes group activities during recess.
 
Along with great programs and a wonderful facility, it is the students, families and staff that make this school a gem in the heart of Santa Cruz County!

Greetings Green Acres Families!                                             May 23, 2020

We are only weeks away from the end of the school year!  I can’t believe it!  I am in awe of all of you and how you have worked to get through the challenges of “distance learning.”  Don’t stop now!  Our last day is not until June 5th.  Here are some updates for you to keep in mind as we close this school year and open the next 2020-2021 school year.

Parent Zoom Meeting
Thank you to the 80 families that were able to join us for the Parent Zoom Meeting on Thursday, May 21.  I recorded the one-hour bilingual meeting. It can be viewed by clicking the link below.  I have also included the slides per parent request.

Collection & Distribution Days
We will be collecting Chromebooks, completed work packets, library books and we will also be distributing any student items left in classrooms as well as Progress Reports.  The staggered schedule below will help us stay organized with the intake process: 

Please return all borrowed Chromebooks, electrical cords, and Hot Spots at your scheduled time (siblings in multiple grades can choose one of the two days).  Please make sure it is charged prior to returning.

Drop boxes for work packets will be clearly labeled per teacher.  A large brown collection box for library books will also be clearly labeled.

Saludos Familias de Green Acres!                                                  23 de mayo de 2020

¡Estamos a solo unas semanas hasta el final del año escolar! ¡No puedo creerlo! Estoy impresionada de todos ustedes y de cómo han trabajado para superar los desafíos del "aprendizaje a distancia". ¡No se detengan ahora! Nuestro último día no es hasta el 5 de junio. Aquí hay algunas actualizaciones para que tomen en cuenta al cerrar este año escolar y abrir el próximo año escolar 2020-2021.

Reunión de Padres por Zoom
Gracias a las 80 familias que pudieron unirse a nosotros para la reunión de padres el jueves 21 de mayo. Grabé la reunión bilingüe que duro una hora. Se puede ver haciendo clic en el enlace a continuación. También he incluido las diapositivas por solicitud de los padres.

Días de Recogida y Distribución
Colectaremos Chromebooks, paquetes de trabajo completado, libros de la biblioteca y también distribuiremos los artículos de los estudiantes que estaban en las aulas, así como los Informes de Progreso. El siguiente calendario escalonado nos ayudará a mantenernos organizados con el proceso:

Devuelva todos los Chromebooks prestados, cables eléctricos y “Hot Spots” a la hora programada (los hermanos en varios grados pueden elegir uno de los dos días).  Por favor asegúre de que esta cargado antes de entregarlo.

Los buzones para paquetes de trabajo estarán claramente etiquetados por maestra. Una gran caja de colección para libros de la biblioteca también estará claramente etiquetada.
