Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
To the Class of 2016: These are the last few weeks you will spend at Repetto before heading off to high school. I expect all of you to continue to do well and make good choices so that you can end your journey at Repetto on a positive note. Some of you have been here since kindergarten and have considered Repetto your second home for the last nine years. I would like to wish all of you a fond farewell and the best of luck as you transition to high school. I know you will do great things during the next four years and beyond, and will continue to make your Repetto School Family proud.
I would also like to wish our current kindergarten through seventh grade students a successful end of the school year and an exciting but also restful summer vacation. Don’t forget to spend some time reading and learning. On behalf of all Repetto staff, we look forward to seeing everyone back to school on Thursday, August 11th, for the first day of the 2016/2017 school year.

New Repetto Garden A special thank you to Mr. David Anantasin, one of our Repetto parents, for organizing and with the help of high school student volunteers, building a second raised garden planter in the lower playground for our students.

Construction Update: Since last summer, a new building on the south-west side of Repetto’s campus has been under construction. This project is now rounding the bend to completion. Though there are still many details to finalize, the anticipated completion date is July 10, 2016. Sixth, seventh, and eight grade students will begin the 2016-2017 school year in their new state-of-the-art classrooms. Each of the eleven classrooms will be equipped with a ceiling mounted LCD projector, an audio sound system compatible with different types of technology, document cameras, Wi-Fi connections, and more. Portable classrooms located on the upper and lower playgrounds will be moved off our campus, which will immensely increase the area for our students to play during recess and lunch. Students will have a grass area with a new blacktop on the upper playground/field.

Our students placed 3rd in the BECAP competition. Good job to Catelynn Soong, Mikayla Kwok, Albert Le, Spencer Lin, Shane Nguyen, Mindy Ren, Michael Villora, Cindy Vong and Sabrina Wu for their hard work and efforts. A big thank you to Ms. Franco for the many hours of preparation with her students.

Repetto PTA: We regret to inform you that Repetto PTA’s charter has been revoked by the California State PTA until further notice. There were issues with tax filings dating back to 2012 and until these issues are resolved and a new charter has been approved and instated, Repetto PTA cannot conduct any business. Some PTA sponsored events such as the college fair and book fair may be cancelled. However, most of our PTA-subsidized school activities such as field trips and Class of 2016 promotion activities will not be affected. Parent volunteers are working diligently to restore our PTA to normal operations and minimize impacts to programs and activities. We have met with representatives from both the Alhambra Council PTA and 1st District PTA and are confident that these issues can be rectified and our PTA charter can be restored as soon as fall of 2016. Thank you everyone for your patience.
Box Tops for Education - Don’t forget to keep collecting Box Tops for Education. Every Box Top you turn in to the office helps our PTA raise money.

Attendance Works: show that elementary students with good attendance read well by the end of third grade and middle school students with good attendance pass important courses. The benefits of good attendance continue throughout life: high school students stay on track to graduate, college students earn a degree, and adults have successful jobs. For more information, visit www.attendanceworks.org or speak with Olga Velazquez, Gateway Advisor, in the school office.
Responsible for Safely Getting Your Child to School: Parents need to be extra careful driving around a school zone and to obey fundamental traffic laws. MPPD proactively enforces traffic laws around the school. We encourage parents to use the valet drop off lane. Do NOT stop alongside other cars or double park. Try to drop off on the same side of the street as the school (or remind your child to use the crosswalk). Never have your child dodge traffic or cross between parked cars. Your cooperation will ensure everyone’s safety.
