PTA Reflections

Are you ready to unleash your creative talents and express yourself through your artwork?  The PTA-supported Reflections Art Program has been bringing the arts to life for students since 1969. Be inspired by this year’s theme: ”Look Within” and create your own original artwork in one of 6 categories: Dance Choreography, Literature, Photography, Film Production, Music Composition or Visual Arts. Submissions are due to the office by October 1.  Prizes include awards, certificates and the opportunity to showcase artwork!  Student Entry Packet and official rules can be found at: https://capta.org/resource/participant-forms/

 

Jog-a-thon- Friday, October 4th

Our jog-a-thon will take place this Friday, October 4th. All funds raised will go directly to our school and students! Thank you in advance for your continued support.

 

5th & 6th Grade: Los Angeles Chargers Camp

5th and 6th grade students received a permission slip last week for parents to sign in order for their child to attend the hour-long Chargers camp during PE time on Thursday, October 10th. Please return as soon as possible. 

 

Grade Level Spotlight

1st Grade-  This past week first grade celebrated Autumn by reading Chicken Little and creating an acorn art project.  Students also learned how the food we eat is a result of selection. In the activity, Apple Taste Test, students tasted four different varieties of apples to learn about the traits (color, texture, and flavor) of apples that humans have artificially selected to encourage. Then we made Apple Crisp. Yum!

6th Grade- This week, 6th graders kicked-off an in-depth study of their passions. Student exploration of their passions will culminate later in the school year at a Fullerton School District Passion Agent's Conference with student Spotlight Speakers, mini-conference sessions, and poster board presentations. We are excited to learn more about their many and varied interests.

 

Attendance Matters

Attendance is so incredibly vital to a student’s academic success!  We strive to have all our students in class every weekday on time. Every day at Hermosa counts!  Teachers take roll when students line-up in the morning. Please help your student to be on time by having him/her in line before 8:00 AM.  We are striving for 98% attendance or better.  

 

Pick-up & Drop-off Safety

Please arrive early to avoid traffic and parking congestion. Please be kind and courteous to our neighbors and  one another during drop-off and pick-up. Please do not block driveways or fire hydrants nor park in undesignated areas (ie. loading zone & bus lane). Please help us to remind students that they must wait on school campus to be picked-up. For student safety and supervision, students are not allowed to wait at the park. Thank you!
