UPDATE- 5/23/17

Spring Lake- HELP!!!

Please turn in your permission slips ASAP.  We currently need 9 spaces for our students to travel to the Spring Lake.  Many parents have only signed up to drive their own student.  If you are able to drive more students than your own, please let me know.  If we don't have enough seats for our class, then our students will be carpooling with other families from other classes.

Cal Skate-HELP!!!

Please turn in your permission slips ASAP.  We currently need 10 spaces for our students to travel to the Cal Skate.  Many parents have only signed up to drive their own student.  If you are able to drive more students than your own, please let me know ASAP!  I would hate for our kids to miss out on this fun trip!

Party Sign Up

Thank you to all the parents who signed up at Open House to bring an item to our end of the year party.  We still are in need of a parent or parents to bring 24 fruit kabobs. Please email me if you are able to help. Also, if you signed up to donate 10.00 towards the purchase of Costco pizza, please send your money in by Tuesday, 5/30.


End of Year Party

Our end of the year party will be on the last day of school, June 2nd. The party will begin at 11:30ish and last until dismissal at 12:10. We will be celebrating the hard work, many accomplishments, new friendships, and the tremendous growth that has happened over the course of this year.  If you are interested in helping, please sign up tonight at Open House.


Extended Day

Kindergarten students will have one more extended day before the end of the school year.  Please mark your calendars, so they don't miss out on the all school awards assembly on, May 30th. K students will be released at 2:30.


Borrowed Materials

If you have borrowed any materials from me during the school year (BOB Books, laminated word families or sight words, CD's, DVD's etc) please kindly return them ASAP.  Also, if you have any Scholastic mini readers that you are not using, I would love them back to re use with next years class.



Last week was the last week of homework.  Since we are still doing assessments, I recommend that your child continue to practice flashcards and reading skills nightly.  I will be sending home support materials and ideas of ways to help your child retain the curriculum taught to them this year.  Please continue to practice reading, writing, and math during the summer.  It is amazing how much a child can forget when these skills are not maintained during the summer.


Cal Skate

The Cal Skate field trip is next Friday, June 2nd from 8:30 to 11:00.  Please send your child's permission slip and $4.00 if your child wants inline skates to school ASAP.  The snack bar will be open. Please send extra money with your child if he/ she would like a snack. Our class will have water and muffins for your student to enjoy. If you are interested in donating one of those items, please sign up in the classroom. Thank you!



Today was our last Library visit. Please return your library books ASAP!




Thank You for the Books

Thank you to the many families who generously purchased books from our class wish list at the book fair.  We have been reading one or two daily.  The kids are loving the new stories!  Thank you again!


Teacher Appreciation Week

Thank you for all the wonderful treats that you gave us during Teacher Appreciation Week.  The beautiful cards and pictures, flowers, baked goodies, and gift cards made us feel truly appreciated and loved!!  You’re the best!!


Mrs. Bianchini and Mrs. Florez


Thank You

As I reflect on the end of my 16th year teaching, I am so overwhelmed with many feelings.  I feel so fortunate to have had such a hardworking class, who has the most incredible families. I will always remember and appreciate your trust, laughter, at home support, and kind hearts. Your children have shown tremendous growth this year both academically and socially.  I am very proud of each and every one of them. They all show a true desire to learn and to do their personal best.  They have strong values and work ethic, which is amazing to see at such a young age. I know that this is just the beginning of the many wonderful accomplishments and successes they will have throughout their lives. They have touched my life in a way that you could never imagine.  I am grateful to be at such a wonderful school, where I am surrounded by genuinely caring individuals and families like yours. Thank you for sharing your child with me this year. I am truly appreciative and will miss each and everyone.  Please keep in touch next year.
