Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Happy New Year to all Repetto families! It is my sincerest hope and desire that 2018 will bring you health, peace and prosperity.
As the first half of the year is coming to an end, the interim assessment has been completed. Since most assessments are now administered online, it would greatly benefit your child to practice keyboarding skills at home. Please check out the various helpful keyboarding and test-taking links available on our school website (repettok8.net). The more practice your child gets, the less difficulty he/she will encounter with online assessments, including SBAC in the spring.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Repetto School community for taking an active part in our students’ education. Our combined efforts will continue to allow students to maximize their potential. Our teachers work diligently with students in the classroom; support staff collaborate with teachers to provide additional services based on student needs; office staff provide students and parents with resources and assistance; the health office facilitates accommodations for students with special health conditions; the cafeteria prepares meals to ensure healthy eating; yard supervisors keep our students safe; the custodians keep our campus clean and in good working condition; and parents provide continued support at home. School success is definitely a team effort!
Students need to do their part as well, which is to continue to take responsibility for their own education so they will be life-long learners. Thank you everyone for doing your part to keep Repetto School great

We need parents’ feedback to help support you and your child’s education. At our next parent LCAP meeting (date in March - TBD), we will be asking you two vital questions:
meeting to give us your input. We also encourage you to participate in the district LCAP survey for all stakeholders. Starting February 6th, the online survey can be accessed on the district website: www.ausd.us. Thank you in advance for your participation!
LCAP Expenditures (LCFF Funding)
This school year, our students and parents are reaping the benefits of our LCAP allocation in the following ways:
Repetto Safe School Survey - As Repetto revises its Comprehensive Safe School Plan, it is important to involve all stakeholders, which include students, parents, guardians, family members, and community members, in the development of our school climate and physical environment goals. Please take a few moments to think about some ways we can improve our school climate and physical environment. Thank you! SURVEY
Parent Volunteer Survey: Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Repetto School! Please take a few moments to complete our SURVEY. Please note that parents that wish to volunteer at Repetto during school hours must complete the Alhambra Unified School District volunteer process. If you have not completed the process, Claudia Martinez, our School Community Coordinator, will be able to assist you. Thank you in advance for your support.
Safe Driving: At Repetto, our first and foremost goal is to keep all our students, staff and families safe. We understand that parking is at a premium and that all of our families face the same situation. We ask everyone to be patient and courteous. Please obey traffic laws and do not make illegal U-turns, park in red zones, double park your car or block the crosswalks or neighbors’ driveways. Please remind your child to never cross the street without using the crosswalk.
Special Thank You: Repetto sends a special thank you to the non-profit Guang Dong Association of USA for their charitable donation of (60) scrapbooking kits as part of their community engagement program.
8th Grade Promotion: 8th grade parents will soon be meeting (date TBD) to discuss important information regarding the Class of 2018 promotion. A letter will be going home with your child shortly, containing finances/expenses and expectations related to the various promotion activities and the ceremony.
Student Absences: Please report your child’s absence by calling the office at (626) 570-6240 or by sending a note with your child on the day he/she returns. If your child has a doctor/dentist note, make sure to send a copy of the note as well. Homework requests (for multiple day absences) must be called in by 9:00am. Homework for absent students can be picked up in the office after dismissal. The office closes at 4:00pm.
Yearbook Photos: Please send any photos that you have taken (or will take) of school events, field trips and other school functions/activities to our office manager, Yow-Wei Chi, at email@example.com. Photos to be considered for inclusion in the yearbooks will be forwarded to our two dedicated yearbook coordinators, Ms. Margot Garcia and Mrs. Toni Preciado. Order forms for the yearbook will be sent home in January.
Valet Service: To ensure that our valet drop-off service runs smoothly and safely, we are greatly in need of additional parent and grades 4-8 student volunteers to help out with this vital service for many of our families. If you are able to volunteer between 7:30am and 7:55am (any morning of the school week), please complete the parent volunteer survey on Repetto’s website or come into the school office to sign up to help.
Coffee Tea Chat with the Principal: All parents and guardians are invited to join us each month for a cup of coffee or tea at an informal get-together. Coffee Tea Chat is an opportunity for parents/guardians to sit with Ms. Gasca, Mrs. Wong and Mrs. Taggart to discuss district/site goals and address school concerns. We look forward to seeing you at our next Coffee Tea Chat at 8:00am on Friday, January 26, 2018.
Arrival Time to School: For safety reasons, students should not arrive to school prior to 7:30am. Campus supervision begins at 7:30am.
Short Thursdays and Minimum Days: We have early dismissal EVERY Thursday. Please make sure students are picked up on time. The bell schedule and the list of minimum days were sent home on your child’s first day of school and can also be viewed on our school website under QuickLinks.
Visitors/Volunteers: All visitors & volunteers must check in with the office provide a valid photo ID (for the Raptor system) before entering campus. IDs are also required when checking out students early or picking up students from the health office. Vital Volunteers: Please make sure to log your time in the green binder on the front office counter whenever you volunteer your time at our school.
Online Emergency Information: Please log on to the Parent Portal to update/complete your child’s online emergency card TODAY. Parents can use the same account created in prior years. Parents of new students will need to link their account to their students’ using their access ID and password. If you do not an access ID or Internet, please see one of the school community coordinators in the office for assistance.
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.
