What We Will Learn

We will be following the California Common Core State Standards to grow an in depth understanding of English language arts, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, health, art, computer skills and physical education. With the cooperation of teacher, parents/guardians, and student, much learning will occur.

Learning Philosophy

  • Everyone can learn.
  • Mistakes help a person learn.
  • Everyone is capable of high achievement.
  • Consistent effort and effective strategies are the main factors of success.
  • Good students ask for help and feedback on their work.
  • You are not supposed to understand everything the first time around. Care, perseverance, and quality are what count.


Your child will be receiving homework every day (Monday-Friday including Friday) of the week except the first week of school. The homework is due daily. Please make sure to check your child's homework for completion and backpack for any notices that get sent home. Your child will also be expected to read every day for 20 minutes.
