Principal's June Newsletter

Dear Hidden Valley Learning Community,


It’s hard to believe that this is my final newsletter at Hidden Valley. While I’m excited to be embarking on a new adventure, I am also sad to be leaving such an amazing school and learning community. I have thoroughly enjoyed the time that I have been here. The teachers and staff could not do the work we do without the incredible effort that parents make to provide such a high level of support for this school. We appreciate all that you do. I am proud to have served as your principal.


The last day of school will be this Friday, June 9th. Dismissal will be at 12:30 for grades 1-5.  A bag lunch will be available for those students who have already turned in a form. Kindergartners will be dismissed at 11:15, and will not have lunch at school that day.


Congratulations goes out to Tracey Rentner, who gained the votes needed during Open House to become our newest parent member of the School Site Council. Heather Abrahimi will be our first alternate SSC member, and Karly Moura will be second alternate. Thank you to all parents who submitted their names for the School Site Council ballot.


On May 26th we completed CAASPP testing, which included the new on-line science test for 5th graders. A huge thank you goes out to everyone in our school community who helped us complete testing in a smooth and successful manner. We are especially grateful to Michele Beach, our Intervention Specialist, who served as our CAASPP Coordinator. Dina Oakes, our Technology Specialist (who is funded by the PFC) was instrumental in making sure that all the technology needs were met. Much appreciation also goes out to our teachers, instructional assistants, parents (who made sure children were well fed and rested), and the 3rd-5th grade students who gave it their very best effort. We look forward to seeing CAASPP results in August.


While summer is a great time to relax and have fun, it’s also important for children to maintain the academic skills they’ve worked so hard to build over the course of the school year. Any type of educational experience will benefit your child, and free choice reading is always a great option. You will still have access to the educational software that is available throughout the year (iReady, IXL, etc.), so please be sure to take advantage of these programs.


I encourage you to check out the reading program at your local public library. Hidden Valley librarian, Ryann Kuiper, has shared information with your child’s class about the program that is offered by the Contra Costa County Library.  Here is the link: http://ccclib.org/reads/summerreading/


To obtain a library card please visit:  http://ccclib.org/services/3-01.pdf


Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help your child(ren) have a successful school year. On behalf of all the teachers and staff at Hidden Valley, I wish you and your family a safe and enjoyable summer break.


All the best,

Rich Gorton
