Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Last week marked the beginning of the final trimester of the year. I hope students will finish the school year strong by putting forth their best effort every day.
The SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) testing window is April 5th through May 20th. Classroom teachers and intervention specialists have been preparing our students throughout the year academically as well as focusing on computer tools, keyboarding and test- taking skills. We believe that SBAC is “high stakes” and we encourage students to practice and focus on doing their best as we prepare them to be college and career ready.
To assist staff members, parents and students in planning for the upcoming school year, District would like to advise you that the tentative first day of school for students in the proposed 2017-2018 student calendar is Thursday, August 10, 2017. Thanksgiving Recess is November 20-24, 2017. Winter Recess is December 22, 2017 – January 5, 2018. Spring Recess is March 26-30, 2018. The district is in the process of negotiating with the unions to finalize the employee work calendar. Once that has been completed and approved by the Board of Education, the final student calendar will be published and posted on the district website and Repetto website.

Repetto PTA: We regret to inform you that Repetto PTA’s charter has been revoked by the California State PTA until further notice.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 to raise money for the school.

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.
