Principal's Message

Parent Teacher Conferences Goal: 100% Participation By now you should have heard from your child's teacher regarding parent teacher conferences. This is a very important meeting during which your child's teacher will go over exactly how your child is doing in class and how you can help your child succeed in school. You will review your child's report card at this time and will have an opportunity to ask questions and get clarification. Please make every effort to attend your child's conference.

Five Tips for a Good Parent-Teacher Conference

1. Plan for the conference. Talk to your child. Write down questions. Look at your child's school books and the work he/she brings home. Think about your child's learning style and study habits. 2. Ask the teacher questions about your child's schoolwork, his relationships with other students and teachers, and any class or school rules you do not understand. 3. Share any information that might help your child's teacher develop a better understanding of your child. 4. Decide with the teacher, what if anything, needs to be done to support your child. Agree on plans, responsiblities, and future steps before you leave. 5. Follow up. Implement your end of the agreement. Keep in touch with the teacher. If the plans do not seem to be working, or if new problem develops, set another appointment to speak to your teacher.

Sick? Stay Home or Go to School?

Deciding when to keep a sick child at home from school is not always easy. It is important for children to attend school and for some parents staying home means missing work. But when a child is truly sick, they need to stay home in the care of an adult to get well and to prevent spreading illness to others. Please keep the school office up to date and make sure we have your current phone numbers so you or an alternate contact can be reached if your child becomes ill or injured.


It is very important that your child comes to school every day. Good attendance directly correlates to academic achievement for you child. Every day of instruction is crucial to your child's success in school. If your child is absent, please remember to call the office every day your son or daughter is absent.  (408) 270-4964. All students not picked up on any day must wait in the office and parents will be required to sign them out.

Emergency Cards

Emergency cards for each of your children were sent home. It is critical that these cards be completed with current information. The staff uses these cards to contact parents in the event of an emergency. Moreover, students will only be released to the people listed on the emergency card. If your phone numbers or addresses change, please notify the office immediately. (408) 270-4964. If you have already registered with "Parent Portal" and have updated your contact information, we thank you. We encourage all parents to register on "Parent Portal" at www.eesd.org

Minimum Day Reminder

Please be advised that every Thursday will be a minimum day unless otherwise noted. Minimum Days are utilized for teacher preparation and staff development training. All students in grades 1st through 6th will be dismissed at 1:04 pm on Thursdays. It is very important that students are picked on time. Thank you!
