Principal's Message

Dear Caryn Families,

As the school year comes to an end, I would like to thank you for a fabulous year. It has been a privilege to work with such a great group of students, staff, and parents. I would like to congratulate our fifth grade students and wish them lots of luck as they transition to Day Creek Intermediate School, we will miss you!

A big thank you goes out to our wonderful PTA. I appreciate all of their hard work this year and fundraising efforts. Our PTA has volunteered numerous hours holding the best interest of children as their forefront. PTA was able to complete the purchasing of 9 Chrome Book charging carts as well as finish the installation of backpack racks outside classrooms. Our volunteers supported many events this year to include Fall Festival, Open House, Volunteer Appreciation Day, and Teacher Appreciation Week, to name a few. Again, thank you to our wonderful volunteers for all your support this school year!

Next, I’m happy to announce that we were able to purchase 20 IPad minis for our two kindergarten classrooms. We will assign 10 IPads to each room to be used by students during small group instruction. Our plan is to purchase applications in the areas of Math and English Language Arts. The IPad technology will be a tremendous tool in support of academic progress for our children!

Finally, we have much to be proud of here at Caryn as we close out the 2014-2015 school year. Students continue to work hard each day as they are challenged to reach new heights. As I walk through classes I can see the tremendous growth made by our youngsters compared to my observations in August. It’s truly a spectacle to see the amount of perseverance displayed by all of our learners. I appreciate our hard working staff, community, and our motivated students for making our school a great place to be. I wish each of you a happy spring as we continue towards the end of the year!

Warm Wishes,
Dino Tavolazzi

Birthday Celebrations

Birthday Celebrations - We realize that birthdays are a special time for many students. Outside treats will no longer be part of student birthday celebrations here on campus. Student birthdays will be celebrated in class with the teacher acknowledging birthdays in a special way.

Performance Assessments in ELA

Common Core State Standards (CCSS). ESD is implementing elements of the standards including the assessments. These assessments will not be used for student grades and will not be reported to parents since many of the skills are not required in our current standards. The purpose of the testing is to evaluate what the school must continue to work on and to give direction to the district.

Health Care Coverage
More children and teens qualify for free or low-cost medical, dental, and vision care coverage programs through Healthy Families or Medi-Cal. Call the school for more information or visit the Healthy Families website.
