Smokey Visits the Junior Rangers
TK Junior Rangers
Team McComb had a visit from Smokey the Bear last week. Smokey shared important facts about the forest and our important resources. TK takes Ranger Walks to study local plant life, water resources, and wild life. They work together with the Auburn Parks and Recreation District to learn conservation tips and care for our local resources.

Dr. Seuss Winners!
Welcome to the LCAP Parent, Staff, and Community Survey. The LCAP is the funding plan for our district schools. In other words it dictates how your tax dollars are spent based on your feedback. This survey is your opportunity to give the district feedback on funding choices and help the district plan for the 15/16 school year funding choices. Every dollar counts so your feedback is important and valued!

Story Time Starts Monday!
Northside Families! Thank you for participating in our Amazing Dr. Seuss Night.
Next up, our school community is beginning the hard push to the May, which includes preparing for Open House, district writing assessments, and the state SBAC's. With this in mind we want you to know that classroom Interruptions will be kept to a minimum. A recent survey reported that on average classrooms are interrupted up to 8 to 10 times per day with messages from home or phone calls. This created a loss of over 30 minutes of instructional time. To recapture instructional time our classrooms will not be receiving calls from the office unless there is an emergency in the morning hours. Parents are asked to have plans for after school play dates, student pick up and bus changes before their student reaches school. We know their are emergencies and in this case we are asking parents to sign at the office and pick up their student directly from class. Thank you for helping us provide the education your student deserves by keeping interruptions to learning at a minimum.
