Parents please get your forms filled out and returned to your child’s teacher asap.

8th Grade Class:

Our 8th grade class and their parents will be fundraising throughout the year to raise money for their 8th grade trip. Please help us support them in their efforts!
 

 

What’s Happening in SAFE:

We are honored to have a SAFE after school for everyone program at our school. This is a program where your child can remain in our care until 6pm daily, free of charge. We help students with their homework, provide snack and offer enrichment programs as well. We are excited to now be able to offer a SAFE Supper program where your student can eat supper at no cost to you. We focus on healthy living so we provide healthy snacks, supper and activities to keep our kids going strong!

 

Cub Power (PTO):

Our first Cub Power meeting will be paired with Site Council on Sept 16th at 5pm in the library. Join us – all are welcome. This is a great way to be involved in your child’s school!

 

Cub Character:

We are in our 3rd year of recognizing Cub Character with earned events. 4th – 8th students vote for their peers who display Cub Character on a regular basis Teachers and our Classified staff vote as well. (K – 3rd teachers decide eligibility for their class). If a student is not picked by at least two of the three groups then they will stay behind to have a regular school day (they aren’t in trouble in any way, just not being rewarded for going that extra mile). After the event everyone gets a clean slate and can start focusing on working towards the next event. We’ve noticed a real shift in reducing negative behavior, this gives everyone something fun to work for! Weed Elementary is very focused on partnering with you to help our young students be the very best they can be!

 

Students also get positive write ups when a staff member sees them doing something above and beyond (a kind act towards another student, volunteering their time to help out or just being awesome to their peers). This recognition is sent home so you can recognize your students’ efforts as well. At the end of the month our Principal goes to each class and reads off the Cub Character recognition for each child and rewards them with a surprise!

 

 

ACADEMIC FOCUS

(MP1) Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; (MP2) Reason abstractly and quantitatively; (MP3) Construct Viable arguments and critique reasoning of others.

Students will read complex text closely to analyze what the text says explicitly and make logical inferences from it; citing specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
