Eastshore Elementary School
January 13, 2015
Happy New Year to all! Students and staff returned well rested and ready to begin the new year. Thank you to those who were able to complete the Continuous Improvement Efforts survey that was sent out before and after winter break. Our district leadership is anxious to review your feedback as we work to continually improve our work in educating students.
RIR RECIPIENTS: We started our first week off with a bang! At our First Friday Flag Fanfare (Friday, January 9th), we recognized the following students for demonstrating RIR. These students were recognized individually in their classrooms as well as in front of the whole school at our flag ceremony. Each child also received a gift certificate for frozen yogurt!
Congratulations to all of these Eastshore Dolphins:)

PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING: On Thursday, January 22nd, the district will be hosting an evening at Eastshore for parents and community members to hear about the P.T.A. funded fence project at Eastshore. If you were unable to attend the P.T.A. meeting in September where information was shared about the project, please plan to join us on the 22nd at 6:00 p.m. in the MPR. District staff will be on hand to receive comments and answer questions.
LCFF AND LCAP INPUT OPPORTUNITIES: Both our School Site Council and P.T.A. were provided information regarding the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) which are related to the relatively new educational funding formula for California schools. This information is also available on the IUSD website. During the months of January and February stakeholders (staff, parents and students) will be asked for feedback on the LCAP. Presentations will occur at both the School Site Council meeting on January 29th and the P.T.A. meeting on January 28th. Please feel free to attend either of those meetings to provide your input or do so online (www.iusd.org). Obtaining stakeholder feedback is part of the requirement of the funding formula and will drive future decisions in our district.
PTA UPDATE: Our first Eastshore Dines Out event of 2015 is tonight at Red Robin in the District. Thank you in advance to all families who help support our school – 15% of the proceeds go directly to the Eastshore P.T.A. Please see attached flyer and take it with you to Red Robin.
The next P.T.A. Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 28th at 6:30 p.m. in the MPR.
MISCELLANEOUS: Residency Verification begins in February – please be on the lookout for emails providing information on how to complete and submit documentation verifying your place of residence.
Here’s to a great 2015!!
