Hueneme Elementary School       

Home of the Mighty Thunderbolts

September 2017

We have gotten off to a great start.  The teachers are teaching!  The students are learning!  We are moving right along with our new school year!

Welcome to our new staff members: 


Ms. Monica Sides, our new assistant principal

Ms. Heidi Childs, second grade teacher 

Ms. Taylor Moore, second grade teacher

Ms. Atenea Benitez, third grade teacher

We look forward to working with these awesome ladies this year.

Our main goal is to make sure our students are safe.  Please talk with your students about what is and is not safe behavior.  It is very important that we all feel safe and comfortable here at school so that our main focus is to learn.  

The most important rules to reinforce at home are:

* Keep hands, feet and body to yourself!

* Listen to the teacher and follow instructions!

* Do your work! 

* Behave in a safe way! 

 All of our classroom rules fall into these four categories!

We are looking for new ways to promote our school and the great things happening here.  Please make sure to come to our Back to School Night and see the great things happening at Hueneme Elementary.  We have some wonderful new ideas for activities for our school and we want everyone to be involved.  We look forward to seeing you at the Parent Meeting to hear all about it.  


Our Back to School Night schedule is as follows:

Taco Dinner (sponsored by The Masons)       5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Book Fair (Room 14)                                            5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Parent Meeting (cafeteria)                                 5:15 - 5:30 p.m.

Classroom Visitations                                         5:30 - 5:50 p.m.

                                                                                  5:50 - 6:10 p.m.

                                                                                  6:10 - 6:30 p.m.

We hope that you will make every effort to be at our Parent Meeting.  We want to try new things and make our school more awesome!  Note that we are trying something a little different with our classroom visitations this year so that parents who have multiple children in our school may be able to get to all classes without feeling like they missed something.  The same presentation will begin at each time.  We look forward to seeing you there.   

Please check out our entire website for information about things happening in our school!  If you have suggestions for how we can make this an even better school, please let us know.  Better yet, get involved in our parent program!  "Many hands make light work!"   

With something to think about and a WHOLE LOT of Thunderbolt PRIDE, see you all around campus!

Go Thunderbolts! 

Dr. Martha S. Romero

How to Resolve Conflict

5 months ago

A while back we had a wonderful assembly about conflict management for our students put on by Kaiser Permanente called "It's Stop Time!"  The Kaiser Permanente performance group also came and talked with our parents about stress.  It was called "One Minute!"  The same message was delivered to our parents as it was to our students.  Some of our upper graders even attended with our parents, which was wonderful!   Our families learned that when they find themselves in a difficult situation that they should STOPBREATHE (for One Minute!) and CHOOSE!  As we are considering our choices, we should THINK before we speak or act! As we THINK, we ask ourselves:

Is it True or Trustworthy?

Is it Helpful?

Is it Inspiring or Important?

Is it Necessary?

Is it Kind?

If our CHOICE is not any of these, we should not say it or do it!

Illness and Attendance
Illness and Attendance
Illness proves to be a great challenge for attendance during the late fall and winter months. Our school nurse, Nurse Arlene, asked us to please remind everyone, especially our students, to cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue. Especially
important is washing your hands or using hand sanitizer after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. In addition, she recommends that we drink plenty of water and choose nutritious foods rather than junk food and candy to help keep our bodies
healthy during cold and flu season. Finally, citrus fruits help provide us with needed vitamin C during this time of year.
Our district attendance goal is 97%! But we know we can do better than that! Let's aim higher! We can do it!
Research shows that student attendance has a major impact on how well a child does in school.
Each day that a class reaches perfect attendance (including NO TARDIES!), our classes receive one letter in the word ATTENDANCE. When the class has
completely spelled the word ATTENDANCE, the class receives a prize. Please see the website for more details. Our students and teachers worked very hard to have perfect attendance each day. Tardies continue to be a great challenge. As we tell the
students, "Don't be late; be here BEFORE 8:00!" The exterior gates are close at 7:55 a.m. Any students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will need to enter through the office. As long as they are in their classroom before 8:00 a.m. the students are on time. We understand that it is often very difficult to get your children up and to school every day,
especially during the cooler winter months, and we definitely cannot have excellent attendance at our school without you. We appreciate your assistance in helping our children to be responsible and learn the good habit of punctuality and promptness. The GREAT news is the Saturday Attendance Academy does work! Please see the Saturday Attendance Academy block for more information!!!

We will also have our FOCUS resiliency trainer working with students during Saturday attendance Academy. Look for fliers and permission slips are in the office.
