Message from Principal Alicia 

We did it!  We made it to the end of the year!  This year has been a whirlwind of new learning, making friends and having fun.  I'm so proud of each and every one of our students. They have worked so hard and come so far.   I hope you all enjoy  some well-deserved rest and relaxation! But don't forget to keep that curious mind active. Read a good book, explore a new park, and maybe even try to learn a new skill. I can’t wait to hear about all your adventures when we return to school in August.  Happy Summer! 


Report Cards
Report Cards are now available for you to view through PowerSchool.  Each family received a letter from the district office at the beginning of the school year with your individual PowerSchool login instructions.  


Back to School Meetings and Orientations
Keep your eye out for a Parent Square message from Alicia by the end of next week with the Back to School meeting dates listed for your information.  Please plan on attending a “Returning Family Orientation” during the week before school starts. At this meeting, we will go over important school communication changes as well as first week logistics such as class lists, schedules, pick up/drop off and school expectations.

Family Jobs Survey

Sara Reilly, Family Job Coordinator 

As we wrap up this school year and prepare for the next, we kindly ask you to fill out our Family Jobs Survey.  All families are requested to perform at least one (1) family job each year. Our goal is to match each family with a role that aligns with their interests and availability. This survey will help us to place you in a role where you feel comfortable and can make a meaningful contribution to our community.

Please fill out the survey by Friday, June 21st.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please reach out to me directly at familyjobs [at] villagehub.org.

Thank you in advance for all that you do to support our students, staff, and school.


Summer Garden Maintenance

AJ Bowden, Garden Coordinator

This year, our student gardeners did a wonderful job of planting many California native plants in our new Habitat Garden. These plants need hand-watering until their roots grow deep enough to survive the summer without supplemental water.


During summer break, I will come to school once per week to water the plants, but I am hoping to enlist some kind helpers so that the plants get watered a second time each week. The best time to water is in the morning (before 10am), and all that is required is to spray with a hose for about 30 minutes.


If your family has any interest in helping to keep our lovely Village garden growing, please email me (adrienne.bowden [at] gmail.com). If ten families volunteer, then each family only needs to water one time!


Thanks for considering!
