Welcome parents to the month of May.
Our school year is nearly over with only about 30 days left in school for the
2013-2014 school year. While it may seem like a time for relaxing before we
head into the summer, there is still a lot of work to do this year at Briggs
School. We are currently in the middle of the new Smarter Balanced Testing that
is replacing the old STAR Test. Briggs will be continuing to test through the
first two weeks of May, so please make sure your students are at school on a
daily basis, well rested, well fed, and ready to learn.
We have several events going on as
we head into the end of the school year that we would love for families to
attend. These include:
Teacher Appreciation Week May 5-May
7th and 8th grade field trips to
8th grade field trip to IMAX and
California Science Center in Los Angeles on May 14th
Flag football at Briggs School
against Mupu School on May 15th 3:00pm
Classified Staff Appreciation Week
After School Program Registration on
Briggs Spring Concert on May 27th
Briggs Principal's Picnic on June
Briggs Penny Carnival on June 10th
We will also be having a Summer
Academy for students this summer, so please watch out for information about
that program which will be offered to some of our students and families.
As a reminder, please don't wait
until final reports come out to learn more about how your student is doing at
school, as right now is the time to be involved with your child and
their education. Some of the ways you can become involved in the education at
Briggs School include:
- Accessing your child's grades at https://briggsdistrict.vcoe.org/parentconnect
- Attending school board meetings on the second Wednesday
of each month at Olivelands School
- Becoming a part of our Parent Fundraising Organization
- Becoming a member of our School Site Council (SSC)
- Attending Migrant Education meetings
- Attending DELAC meetings
- Attending Title 1 meetings
- Contacting your child's teacher to find out about
helping in the classroom or how to help at home
- Or just dropping by the office at Briggs School
