Hello and welcome to Caryn Elementary a California Distinguished and Gold Ribbon School!

Caryn is a small, neighborhood school in a planned community located in the northwest region of the Etiwanda School District’s boundaries. Caryn currently serves students in grades transitional kindergarten through fifth grade.

Parents are always welcomed and encouraged to be involved in their child’s learning process by attending school events, serving on a school committee, and volunteering at the school. The staff welcomes parent assistance in the classroom and with school wide activities. Parent engagement is very important to our site and staff, and we value the impact a parent has on a child’s educational experience. Our site has planned committees that provide opportunities for parents to interact and get involved in their child’s school. The School Site Council and Parent Teacher Association (PTA), enable parents to provide oversight and input on the school budget, activities, and educational programs. We hope that you will take the time to find out how you can get involved; and we look forward to your presence, moving our school forward, and ensuring academic success for all!

In close, I know you will find our school to be one that puts students first. The safety, well-being, and belonging to a family centered community, with a strong academic focus, are always at the forefront of every decision made at our site.

Thanks for taking the time to read, and I wish you the best!

Mr. Tavolazzi
Principal

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.
