Monthly Letter

March 2014

Dear Parents:

As always, life is busy at Country Club! 

We began the month with gusto with our Read Across America Week, celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday and activities in support of our Wheelchair Foundation collection.  Thanks to PTA and ,particularly, Megan Portoni and Sarah Evans for organizing the reading events.  Sarah coordinated Reading Night and Megan organized “Donuts with Dad or VSP” on March 5th.  It is one of my favorite days of the year, welcoming parents with a cup of coffee and seeing all enjoying reading together with our students.

School Plan:  We are updating our Site Plan for school improvement.  Our four goals are:

  1. Implement curriculum, instruction and assessments aligned to Common Core  Standards
  2. Implement programs and strategies that meet the needs of all learners to close the achievement gap
  3. Maintain a Sage and Positive School Climate
  4. Integration of technology for 21st century learning.

We are writing action items and determining the funding associated with those items.  The plan will be finalized by School Site Council March 31.

Your Donation!:  Many, many thanks to your generous donations to the Cougar Ed Fund, which allows for us to provide for many of the action items which are an essential element in our school plan!  Your dollars provide opportunities for your student in many areas: art, technology, character education, extra library time, social skills support staff.

Viva Las Vegas! Get ready to double down and donate to our students at The Club!  Teacher Time will be available for bidding soon.  Check it in the school office.

Fund a Need:  Be first to donate to our Fund A Need for this year!  Our amazing science lab is in need of microscopes! Mrs. Eustice and Mrs. Fettig, our science teachers, have selected two wonderful microscopes, one for K-2 and one for 3-5. Our students will be able to explore the fascinating world under the lens of a lit, portable device.  Each microscope is $100. Make your donation at the Country Club Affair on April 5th. Thank you!

Our Wheelchair Foundation collection is in full swing and will end March 21st.  The Foundation, led by local philanthropist Ken Behring has donated almost a million wheelchairs to needy adults and children world wide.  Our wheelchairs will be going to people in a Latin American country and will have our school’s name stitched on the back of the chair.  So far we are collected enough for seven chairs.  Our goal is twelve chairs at $150 each. Please check out our website for a video, donation link, and further information.

We held our first ELAC meeting of the year (English Learner Advisory Committee) , hosting the parents of our English Learners.  We have approximately 60 EL learners here at Country Club.  Those students with emerging skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing are supported with the classroom teacher and Nicole Lowrance, our EL instructor.  I have attached information about how parents can help their EL learner at home.

We are looking forward to conference week and conferencing with you about your student’s progress.  Please note that we will be on a minimum day schedule.

Our Gardens!  We are so excited for the support of PTA, teachers, students, and middle school girl scouts who are helping beautify our courtyard gardens.  During these next few weeks, we will be weeding and planting. Have a fantastic month!

Thanks for all YOU do to make Country Club AMAZING very day. Have a great month!
