Hueneme Elementary School       

Home of the Mighty Thunderbolts


March 2017


Trimester 3 and Month 7, here we come! We are hard at work preparing our grade 3 - 5 students for the upcoming CAASPP Smarter Balanced testing later this year as well as preparing all of our students for their next school year!   On Monday, March 20, our grade 5 students will be taking the pilot test for the new CAST test.  This is the California Science Test.  It is the new online annual state Science test.  


The cooler, rainy winter weather brings along with it cold and flu season. This is having quite a DEVASTATING effect on our school attendance!  Please check out the block regarding illness and attendance to see steps you can take to keep the flu and cold bugs at bay! 


Thank you to everyone for making sure that our students are on time, every day!  Remember our instructional day begins at 8:00 a.m. To make sure your student is on time, please have him or her here NO LATER THAN 7:55 a.m.  Someone prompt and punctual once said, "If you are early, you are ON TIME!  If you are on time, YOU ARE LATE!"  Breakfast is served from 7:35 a.m. until 7:50 a.m.  This gives our students plenty of time to eat a nutritious breakfast and get to class in a punctual manner.  Please bring your student here within these times if you want them to eat breakfast.   

 
Our next Saturday School is on Saturday, April 29.  There are only 2 more opportunities to make up absences and help us meet our district goal of 97%. This is an chance for students who have had one or more absences to make up that day of school.  Our focus for Saturday School this year is STREAM: Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics!  We will be having an exciting time!  If your child has been absent, we look forward to seeing them here!  
 
A few months ago we had a wonderful assembly about conflict management for our students put on by Kaiser Permanente called "It's Stop Time!"  In the fall this year, the Kaiser Permanente performance group 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 THINKwe 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!

Finally, we ask our students and staff to show their Thunderbolt PRIDE. What is Thunderbolt PRIDE you ask?
It means:
Be a             Positive Influence.
Show           Respect and
                     Integrity
Perform      Deeds of Kindness
                     Express compassion!


We also ask everyone to reflect on our Hueneme Guidelines for success: 
* BE RESPECTFUL
* BE RESPONSIBLE
* BE KIND
* BE SAFE
* BE POSITIVE

* EXCEL!
 
Finally, we would like to encourage our students to consider this special request:
"If you see someone who is struggling to make friends or being bullied because he or she doesn't have many friends or because they are shy or not as pretty or not dressed in the most popular clothes, PLEASE step up.  Say hi or at least smile at them in the hallway.  You never know what that person might be facing outside of school.  Your kindness might just make a HUGE difference in someone's life!"
Please check out the website and calendar for more important information.
With something to think about and a WHOLE LOT of Thunderbolt PRIDE, we look forward to seeing you along the way! 
 
Go Thunderbolts!

TAKE A STAND. LEND A HAND. STOP BULLYING!

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.
Attendance
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.
Our attendance percentages for the first three months are as follows:


September:
without Saturday School: 97.51%
with Saturday School: 97.99%

October:
without Saturday School: 96.73%
with Saturday School: 96.98%

November:
without Saturday School: 95.93%

Saturday Attendance Academy does make a huge difference!
Our ATTENDANCE BINGO Challenge is in place to motivate our students to be here daily. We want to aim higher! Our school goal is 98% or better every day, ALWAYS striving for 100% perfect attendance!
Some extra incentives for meeting the goal are:

Round 1: Pencils
Round 2: Principal's Recess
Round 3: Parfait Picnic
Round 4: Bingo
Round 5: Movie
Round 6: Special Lunch
Round 7: Ice Cream Party

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 now closing 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!!!
