School News:

 

You are invited to Lunch on the Lawn:  Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 5th for our spring Lunch on the Lawn event.  Bring a blanket to throw on the lawn while you eat and relax to some beautiful music during your child’s regularly scheduled lunch.  Don’t forget to bring you ID!

 

 

School-wide WIG (Wildly Important Goal): Cerritos Student Commerce would like to introduce a Spring WIG.  Our school-wide goal is to have at least 7 families per class turn in a tax credit donation by April 14th, 2017.  Any class that meets the goal will receive special recognition and a reward. Thank you to the 30 families that have already donated!  Student Commerce leaders will be updating a bulletin board in the main hallway to track our progress.  Will you help us meet our school goal?    IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you donate online via

www.kyrene.org/taxcredit, please send an email to jharris@kyrene.org to let us know you donated and the name of your child’s teacher!

 

 

Parent Satisfaction Survey:  Recently you received an email from the Kyrene School District asking you to complete our Parent Satisfaction Survey. This survey is extremely important as it provides us with valuable insight as to your view on Cerritos’s strengths and the areas you feel need improvement.  We use this survey to help assess our performance and to plan future goals for our school.  We are asking that you submit a separate survey for each child enrolled at Cerritos.

 

 

State Testing Dates:  Attention Cerritos 3rd-5th grade families… It is that time of year and state testing is here!  The AzMERIT and AIMS Science testing window will begin April 6-April 28th.  We need your support to reach our 100% tested goal!  Please make every effort to have your child arrive to school on time, especially during the testing window.  Please avoid making any appointments or signing your child out early during the testing window.  Once a student has started a testing session, they will not be able to return to it on another day.  Encourage your child to get a good night sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast which equals brain food, encourage children to aim high but don’t pressure, remind them to listen to directions and avoid rushing.
