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 25,  2021

Can you believe it? We are in the final week of school!  We did it!  Way to go, Lion Pride!
 
So much is happening, and here is what we should all keep in mind:
 
Chromebook /Library Book Collection: 
If you haven’t done so already, turn in your Chromebooks and library books tomorrow. 
 
Lost and Found:
How does this happen?  There are so many jackets and items in the lost and found bin!  We will lay them out daily for students to peruse and hang them along the fence at the cafeteria parking lot for those who would like to drive by to check for items you may have lost. 
 
5th Grade Promotion Ceremony - Friday, May 28th - 9:00-10:00 am
Congratulations to our 5th graders!  Middle School Awaits!  Students are allowed to invite four members of their families to attend. Reservations are required to attend.  Please contact your teacher if you did not receive an opportunity to reserve your space. Students may leave immediately after the ceremony but must be “signed out” by a parent or guardian. 
 
Riding the Learning Wave Summer School:
Green Acres will host summer school beginning June 6th and ends July 1st (July 2nd for ESY).  Confirmation notices for accepted students were sent last week.  If you did not receive confirmation, you are probably on the waiting list.  For more information, contact the school office.
 
Last Day of School:
Friday, May 28th, is the last day of school.  It will follow our regular daily schedule. 
 
Thank You To All our Parent Committees:
Thank you to all School Site Council members, ELAC, Parent Advisory Board, DELAC, Home and School Club, & Cradle To Career for helping with our school governance. Your roles as elected board members are necessary for us to receive funding, distribute resources, and understand parent perspectives. Our sincerest gratitude to each of you.  
 
Next School Year 2021-2022 begins, Wednesday, August 11!  
 
It has been a pleasure working alongside each of you for the benefit of our Green Acres Lions!  Thank you for your continued support and partnership. I look forward to our “full day” return!   Please check our website periodically for updates.
 
Have a wonderful summer break!  Hike, bike, swim, surf, camp, or do whatever it is that you enjoy in the great outdoors!  But remember to make READING a part of your everyday routine.  See you soon!  GO LIONS!
 
Proudly,
Rebecca Dominguez Taylor, Principal

¿Puedes creerlo? ¡Estamos en la última semana de clases! ¡Lo hicimos! ¡Así se hace Leones! 
 
Están sucediendo muchas cosas, y esto es lo que todos debemos tener en cuenta:
 
Colección de libros y Chromebooks:
Si aún no lo ha hecho, entregue su Chromebook y libros de biblioteca mañana.
 
Objetos Perdidos:
¿Como sucedió esto? ¡Hay tantas chaquetas y artículos perdidos! Los pondremos donde los estudiantes pueden pasar a ver si algo les pertenece. Ademas los pondremos a lo largo de la cerca en el estacionamiento de la cafetería para aquellos que quieran pasar en automóvil para verificar si hay artículos que pueda haber perdido.
 
Ceremonia de promoción de quinto grado - Viernes 28 de mayo - 9:00-10:00 am
¡Felicitaciones a nuestros estudiantes de quinto grado! ¡La escuela intermedia te espera! Los estudiantes pueden invitar a cuatro miembros de sus familias a asistir. Se requieren reservaciones. Comuníquese con su maestra si no recibió la oportunidad de reservar su espacio. Los estudiantes pueden irse inmediatamente después de la ceremonia, pero un padre o tutor debe "firmar su salida".
 
Escuela de Verano en la Ola de Aprendizaje:
Green Acres será el sitio para la escuela de verano a partir del 6 de junio y terminara el 1 de julio (2 de julio para ESY). Los avisos de confirmación para los estudiantes aceptados se enviaron la semana pasada. Si no recibió la confirmación, probablemente esté en la lista de espera. Para obtener más información, comuníquese con la oficina de la escuela.
 
Último día de la Escuela:
El viernes 28 de mayo es el último día de clases. Seguirá nuestro horario diario.
 
Gracias a todos nuestros comités de padres:
Gracias a todos los miembros del Consejo del Plantel Escolar, ELAC, la Junta Asesora de Padres, DELAC, Club de Hogar y Escuela y Cuna a Carrera por ayudar con el gobierno de nuestra escuela. Sus papeles como miembros electos de la junta son necesarios para que podamos recibir fondos, distribuir recursos y comprender las perspectivas de los padres. Nuestro más sincero agradecimiento a cada uno de ustedes.
 
¡El próximo año escolar 2021-2022 comienza el miércoles 11 de agosto!

¡Que tengan unas maravillosas vacaciones de verano! Camine, ande en bicicleta, nade, haga surf, acampe o haga lo que sea que disfrute al aire libre. Pero recuerde hacer la LECTURA una parte de su rutina diaria. ¡Nos vemos pronto! ¡ADELANTE LEONES!
 
Con Orgullo,
Rebecca Dominguez Taylor, Directora
