WOLF PACK NEWS
FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Our school year is wrapping up and we are in an excellent position for the start of 2016-17.
Our 4th and 5th graders will enjoy prep classes in both science and technology (PE will be taught by classroom teachers); this is an excellent opportunity for our students to really learn in depth technology skills embedded in the common core standards.
Each grade level will have a rolling cart of 32 touchscreen Dell netbooks (kinder will have ipads) as we upgrade our infrastructure in preparation for eventual 1:1.
We will be piloting an English Language Arts curriculum next year in preparation of our District adoption for 2017-18 school year. One teacher per grade level will be selected to pilot and regular discussion will occur through grade level and staff meetings to reach a recommendation for adoption.
Our whole school intervention program continues to be refined to deliver appropriate instruction to all students through both large and small groups, 4 times per week for 30 minutes per grade level with aide support.
We recently purchased an extensive collection of guided reading materials for kindergarten and first grade students. We are excited to implement in small groups and look forward to parent volunteers supporting centers

WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS MONTH!
Please call in all absences to the attendance line.
ALL Visitor/Volunteers MUST go through the office to sign in and get a sticker before entering the campus.
Effective January 1, 2015, the Byron Union School District Board of Trustees will begin implementing board policies: AR1240, CF 4212.5, CF. 3515.5, (Ed code 45106, 45347, 45349, 49406), policy on the requirements for our parent volunteers and parent drivers.
All classroom volunteers, and all drivers and chaperones on field trips will now have to have fingerprint clearance as well as a current Tuberculosis (TB) test.
If you have had a TB test within the last 4 years and can provide the negative reading, you may use these results. If you have a fingerprint clearance through our district, you do not have to re-submit one, but if you have had a clearance through another agency, it is not transferable and will need to be done again.
STUDENTS LEAVING EARLY
Any student being signed out early MUST exit through the office (this includes early release Wednesday). Parents must meet student in the office to be released. The office cannot call a student out of class until the parent/guardian are present. Thank you for your cooperation.
