Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! The entire Repetto staff is looking forward to another exciting and outstanding year at Repetto School.
SBAC results from state testing during last spring are in and I am very pleased to report that Repetto students performed exceptionally well in all areas. Individual student reports showed that most scores improved and that students are being successful in both the English Language Arts and Math sections. Teachers and students prepared diligently for the SBAC and the results reflected their hard work.
The Chalk Talk newsletter is one of our primary communication tools and will be sent home with your student the first school day of every month. Please read it carefully and make note of important upcoming dates. We also encourage parents to check our school website frequently.
Our school utilizes the “Connect-Ed” system to send phone and/or email announcements to our families. In order to ensure delivery of these messages, make sure you have updated your online emergency and contact information.
Repetto welcomed several new staff members this school year: Ms. Carin Gasca (assistant principal shared with Park School), Ms. Vivien Wong (psychologist split with LIFT), Mrs. Sandi Sakurai (4th grade teacher), Marlen Purpura (Gateway Intervention Advisor), and Traci Proffitt (PE Aide). We are happy to have them join our Repetto Family!

Repetto PTA: We regret to inform you that Repetto PTA’s charter has been revoked by the California State PTA until further notice.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