Message from the Principal

2 months ago

Dear Green Acres Families,

As the school year draws to a close, I want to let you know how much I have enjoyed being a part of the Green Acres community in various roles over the years. It has been a pleasure watching your children learn and thrive and getting to know so many of you as parents. (And really fun to see some of you as parents who I knew as students years ago!) I hope you will join me in welcoming next year’s new principal, Rebecca Dominguez Taylor. We will have a special “meet and greet” event on Monday, May 20th, at 8:00-8:30 am in the library.

I want to say a special thank you to our outgoing Home and School Club president, Gina Vitali, and Treasurer, Diana Bare, for their many years of service and experience. Home and School Club sponsors many wonderful assemblies and school-wide activities for our students, and this year provided soccer goals, a new “buddy bench,” and the GaGa Ball Pit. The parents who volunteer in this organization make a huge difference by enhancing the school experience for ALL of our students, and I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.

At this time of the year, the calendar fills up with activities. We have state testing, kindergarten registration, an end of the year show, the 5th grade overnight trip to Sacramento, and many class field trips and parties. Please remember our nutrition policy when planning for end of the year celebrations and check in with your child’s teacher for guidance.

Interdistrict Transfers: Families that have students attending Green Acres on an Interdistrict Transfer need to reapply each year. If you haven’t reapplied, please do so right away. Thank you!

TK and Kindergarten Registration: If you have a child who is 5 or turning 5 years old, please call the office for registration information.

Your children have learned so much this year, academically and socially. Please keep the momentum going, by encouraging your child to read this summer and explore their interests. Have a fun-filled summer!

Nancy Krueger, Principal

GREEN ACRES SCHOOL RULES
1. Be Safe
2. Be Respectful
3. Be Responsible
4. Do your personal best!
Did you know that one of the most important strategies of a safe, strong school is knowing the school rules? Teachers give lessons on how these rules apply in the classroom, the library, the playground, the cafeteria, the garden, and while moving from one area to another. Our goal is to make sure we have taught students the positive behaviors we expect them to use.

Ask your child if they can tell you the Green Acres Rules, and if they can give you an example of following the rules at school. A great way to extend their thinking would be to create examples of what it would mean to follow the rules at home. What do you do to be safe at home? Respectful? Responsible? Let us know some of the ideas you come up with!
