Dear Etiwanda Colony Families, The 2016-2017 school year is off to a great start! It has been a treat to visit our classrooms each day and see all of our smiling students excited to be in class and learning. The theme this year is “Power to Be Your Best!” Our teachers have been working hard to plan and prepare lessons that encourage our students to be their best, and I am delighted to say I have seen both our students and staff truly embody this theme. We have adopted a new English Language Arts curriculum that is built from the ground up to cover all of the material in the rigorous California State Standards. Students are spending more time reading informational text, discussing and thinking critically, and writing more. This lays down the groundwork for success not only in Junior High and High School, but college and beyond. Our district has updated our student information system to the new Aeries.Net platform! This change allows parents to easily register students or update emergency information online. This website also offers access to your students grades and other important school information. You can find instructions on accessing Aeries.Net on our website, check out “Parent Portal Directions” on our News page. We are excited to offer a multiple of extra-curricular activities this year, ranging from Chorus to an introduction to Engineering using K’Nex. Keep an eye out as we update our website to see all the programs we will be offering throughout the year. We have been so happy to see our Watch D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students) on campus! Your help has been invaluable, and we appreciate all that you do. If you have not yet signed up for watchdogs you can do so by clicking the “Watch DOGS” page on our websites side bar. From there you can go to our Signup.com page, and schedule a day to volunteer using the easy to use online calendar. I would like to extend a thank you to our wonderful PTA for their support and the dedication they show to our school. They have worked on a truly amazing plan for this year and I encourage every parent to join. As we all settle into our routines for the year please know how much I appreciate all of you in our community. Your continued support for Etiwanda Colony is a constant reminder of how wonderful a place this is for not only your students, but for all of us to grow and learn. -Sandra Fleming
