    Things to remember for success!

    1.  Label jackets, hats, and lunch pails with your child's name.

    2.  Memorize basic math facts +, -, x, /

    3.  Have your child memorize their most important contact phone numbers.  It helps to have them practice how to make a phone call from school.  They will have to dial 9 for an outside line, then 1 and your number including the area code e.g. 9-1-805-XXX-XXX.

    4.  If you receive a call from school, please listen to the message prior to calling back.  Often it will be your child calling from class reminding you of an early release day.  The office will not always know why you were called, but it will be on your phone message.  Also ensuring that your voice mailbox has room to receive messages is very helpful.

    5.  Have your child memorize their lunch code, call the office for this number if needed.  It will be used for class lists, the cafeteria, computer access, library, etc. for their entire school career at TUSD.

    6.  If it is raining, wear hats, jackets with hoods, or bring an umbrella.  Rainy days at school are fun, so be prepared to enjoy the wet weather.

    7.  If it is hot, moderate yourself.  Drink fluids and seek out the shade.  Indoor options for hot days are always offered during lunch.

    Stand-Up to Bullying

    Bullying is defined as repeated behavior which targets a particular person.  Fortunately, this is not a common occurance at VES, but occurances of behavior that are not "polite" or "safe" (our school rules) do occur.  When they do...

    1.  Help your child with immediate ways of working through tough situations.

    2.  Contact your child's teacher

    3.  Contact the VES principal

    The VES teachers, field supervisors, principals, and support staff work diligently to keep our finger on the pulse of our school climate.  We are here to help you and can immediately work to stop poor behavior on campus. Unfortunately, we can't be everywhere at once.  We don't know what we don't know, so we need you and your child's help identifying problems before they grow!

    Some ideas to help you and your child deal with peer issues can be found at Kid's Health.  Click here and search their extensive website for many tips from nutrition to emotional support.

    I WILL speak up instead of acting as a bystander.

    I CHOOSE to participate in activities that don't involve teasing.

    I FORGIVE others if they make poor choices.

    I MODEL good behavior.

    I ACCEPT others for their differences.

    I INCLUDE others in group situations.

    I WILL talk to an adult when there is a problem I cannot manage on my own.

    I AM powerful in making a difference in my school.

    Math Homework Help

    Parent Tips from Great Minds--Read on to learn a little bit about Eureka Math:Eureka Math

    Eureka Math is a complete, PreK–12 curriculum and professional development platform. It follows the focus and coherence of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and carefully sequences the progression of mathematical ideas into expertly crafted instructional modules. This curriculum is distinguished not only by its adherence to the CCSS; it is also based on a theory of teaching math that is proven to work. That theory posits that mathematical knowledge is conveyed most effectively when it is taught in a sequence that follows the “story” of mathematics itself. This is why we call the elementary portion of Eureka Math "A Story of Units." The sequencing has been joined with successful methods of instruction that have been used in this nation and abroad. These methods drive student understanding beyond process and into deep mastery of mathematical concepts. The goal of Eureka Math is to produce students who are not merely literate, but fluent, in mathematics. Your student has an exciting year ahead, discovering the story of mathematics!
