Greetings Timberwolf Families!

Welcome to the 2015/2016 school year! Our theme this year is: Power Up for Success! Join us as we power up for learning! Our first day of school is Thursday, August 6th.

Tentative class lists will be available online at http://www.etiwanda.org/classes beginning Tuesday, August 4th at 4:00 p.m. Class lists will NOT be posted at the front of the school. Please note this is a district-wide procedure change. You will be prompted to enter the following information: Street Address, Residence Area Code, Student’s Birthdate and Birth Location. Class assignments can also be obtained through ESPRI if you have an account. Please note that in order for a class assignment to be posted all registration paperwork to include but not limited to: residence verification, first grade physicals. Additionally all library books must be returned.

Our School Hours remain the same as last year:

Kindergarten - A.M. Session 8:05 a.m. – 11:25 a.m. Monday - Friday
Kindergarten - P.M. Session 11:25 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. Monday - Friday
Grades 1 – 5 8:15 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. Tuesday - Friday

Minimum Day each Monday 8:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. for Grades 1 – 5

**Please Note: The 1st day of school is Minimum Day for Grades 1 – 5 with Dismissal @ 1:15 pm

We strongly encourage prepaying for lunches so that students don’t have to worry about daily lunch money. You may prepay for lunches any time during the year at www.EZSchoolPay.com. Lunch prices and menus can be found at: www.ESDChildNutrition.com. Students type their ID number into the keypad each time that they buy lunch. ID numbers remain the same every year. Memorizing lunch numbers is especially important for 1st graders who are new to this system and new students to our school. It is highly recommended that students bring a lunch from home on the first day of school if at all possible.

Morning supervision begins at 7:50 a.m. 1st-5th Grade students enter through the gate adjacent to the office. To ensure "on time" arrival students should be in line on the playground by 8:10 a.m. A student is considered tardy if they are not in their seat at 8:15.

On the first day of school, students will receive a Timberwolf Homework Folder with important information and several items to be signed and returned. Teachers will use these folders regularly to send correspondence and homework back and forth from school to home.

Thousands of dollars of “lost and found” clothing was given to charity last year. Please label your child’s clothing so that lost items have a better chance of being returned to their rightful owners, and remind children to check the lost and found area frequently.

To assist you in selecting appropriate clothing items, please review our District Dress Code on our district website: www.etiwanda.k12.ca.us/district/dresscode.pdf
Some specific reminders from the Dress Code are:
• Girl’s tops should be long enough and pant waists should be high enough so that when your daughter raises her arms above her head, her midriff skin is not showing.
• Girl’s shorts, skorts and skirts should be long enough to reach her fingertip length.
• Girl’s tops must include straps at least 2 inches wide. Undergarments must be covered.
• Boy’s pants and shorts should fit at the waist without a belt. Your son should be able to run and play PE activities without impeding movement. Undergarments must be covered.
• Tennis shoes are the best choice for shoe attire. Laces must be tied.
• Shoes must have covered toes and include a heel strap.

Though there are many advertising campaigns about cell phones for kids and “family minutes”, we remind you that the district has a policy that prohibits student use of cell phones on campus and on school property. Students have adults at school in the classroom and office that can assist them in the event that they need to use a phone at school. Cell phones, if brought to school, must remain off and put away at all times on school premises, which includes parking lots and pick up/drop off zones. Your cooperation in keeping cell phones at home is much appreciated.

The E3 Foundation offers Monday after school programs from 1:15-2:45 p.m. that are open to all Terra Vista 1st-5th graders. The first session is Spanish Academy and we are now accepting registration in our office. These sessions do fill quickly, so if you’re interested please stop by to register right away.

A key ingredient to student success is parental involvement at school. One of the best ways to stay up to date on current school events is to frequently visit this website. Save us to your favorites! You can also follow me on twitter at Mrs.Tavolazzi@TerraVista1994. There are many opportunities to get involved. A great place to start is by joining our Terra Vista PTA or becoming a Parent Volunteer. Our first PTA General Association Meeting will take place at Back to School Night.

The staff at Terra Vista looks forward to welcoming you on August 6th and working with your family throughout the year. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office. The office staff includes Mrs. Salazar, our Secretary, our Clerk; Mrs. Aguilar and Mrs. Pollock, our Assistant Principal. You will find them kind, efficient, and helpful. On behalf of the entire staff, welcome to the 2015/2016 school year! We look forward to an exciting and productive year!
Mrs. Tavolazzi
