Mark your calendars- the Fall Festival is coming Friday, October 19. Lots of volunteer opportunities.


Fall Festival is a Salt Creek Elementary family favorite tradition.  It takes an army of volunteers to make this event a success. There are so many ways to help: donate bags of candy, donate cupcakes and cakes, donate to your classroom’s silent auction basket, help set up, help clean up, run/supervise a station.

There are still spaces available for a vendor booth.

Email saltcreekptg@gmail.com for more information.

New After School Filipino Language Class for 4th-6th grade!


Dear Parents,

We are excited at plans to open an After School Filipino Language Class for 4th-6th graders next quarter.    As you know, we celebrate diversity at Salt Creek, and this opportunity is for both students of Filipino and non-Filipino descent.  This course will offer cultural awareness, songs, games, interactive activities, and role play.  Topics include greetings, alphabet, days of the week, food, family, places, basic sentences.  Course will be taught by credentialed Filipino Language instructors in our community who are also Members of the Council for Teaching Filipino Language and Culture (CTFLC).

A 9 or 10 week schedule will begin next quarter on Tuesdays from 3:05-4:15 p.m. in one of our Salt Creek classrooms for a fee of $100.

If you are interested, please respond to this post or email Principal Perez directly at lalaine.perez@cvesd.org.  We want to ensure we have enough interest to launch this program in October. This is an opportunity that you do not want to miss, and the FIRST elementary program in San Diego county!

Sincerely,

Lalaine Perez, Principal

Minimum Days start Thursday for Fall Conferences


We are going into our Quarter 1 Parent/Teacher Conferences. Minimum Days start this Thursday, Sept. 13th and continue until Sept. 21st.

This year our parent-teacher conferences are different.  Instead of a report card, you will receive a conference form. This form is meant to facilitate and encourage two-way communication between teachers and parents.  This is a perfect opportunity for your child’s teacher to learn from you about how your child works at home and specific strategies that motivate your child to do their best.

You will notice a change in how your child’s progress is being reported to you.  It will highlight the preliminary assessment information that has been collected so far this school year.  This will help create goals and next steps for your child this school year.  Come equipped with information on your child’s strengths and areas where you would like to see your child grow.

Thank you for Supporting our Visitor/Volunteer Policies


Dear Parents,

Thank you for your cooperation with our efforts to improve adherence to the District Visitor and Volunteer Policies.  We want to promote the strong partnership between parents and the school, however, we want to ensure that safety and privacy of your child is first and foremost.

Always sign in at the front office using the Raptor system – this is a District wide tool to help us monitor visitors on our campus and also identify if any persons unsafe to enter the campus are trying to register.  Always wear your visitor tag, and know that staff may ask you if you have registered if your tag is not visible.

Office staff may ask you the purpose of your visit and if the teacher is expecting you.  This practice supports the District policy that meetings and volunteer visits are prearranged with the teacher to ensure that instructional learning time for your child is not repeatedly interrupted.  It is at the teacher’s discretion to arrange their volunteer schedule.   Dropping off lunches, asking the teacher a question, or pulling your child out of class are not valid reasons to sign in to interrupt the class.  Please leave lunches at the front desk and make an appointment for before or after school with your child’s teacher if you need to speak with them.

For everyone’s safety and protection, please remember that volunteers may not be left alone to supervise students on campus, and that visitors and volunteers may not approach  or interact with students except for the purpose of the activity that they are volunteering for, including taking photos or video of students other than your own.   This includes lunch time, please remember that lunchtime visits with your child are limited to just the lunch arbor.  Student confidentiality is a priority, so we ask that if parents or volunteers have a concern about a student, an incident, or a situation to please inform the teacher or administration.

All volunteers must have a current TB test on file and fingerprints, if you are volunteer 2x/week or more.  Please see office staff if you need assistance.

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation!  Please see attached Board Policies and feel free to contact us if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions!   We welcome parent volunteers, however, the top priority is safety and minimizing disruptions and conditions that would impede the learning process for your child.

Thank you!

Mrs. Perez, Principal
