Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
Happy New Year to all Repetto families! It is my sincerest hope and desire that 2017 will bring you peace, health 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. 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. Repetto’s test scores have shown significant growth due to the combined effort of everyone. Our teachers work diligently with students in the classroom; support staff collaborate with teachers to provide intervention services; parents follow up with assignments and enrichment at home; office staff provide students and parents with resources and assistance; health office facilitates accommodations for students with special health conditions; cafeteria prepares meals to ensure healthy eating; yard supervisors keep students safe; and the custodians keep our campus clean and in good working condition. 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!

Parent Technology Workshop - Parents are invited to our upcoming technology workshop. See flyers below.
8th Grade Promotion Meeting: Repetto School will be holding a meeting on Friday, January 20th to share important information regarding the 8th grade promotion activities and ceremony. We will also discuss ways parents can help out to ensure a successful and memorable promotion for the Class of 2017.
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 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
8th Grade Language Challenge Test: 8th grade bilingual students can sign up to take the Language Challenge Test in Chinese (Mandarin) and Spanish. The test is scheduled for January 26th (given in class during the school day).Students can earn high school credits and/or be placed in a higher level language class if they demonstrate a good command of the language in areas of reading, writing and listening. This process can be a stepping stone for future placement in a high school advanced placement (AP) class.
See’s Candies Top-Selling Classes: Congratulations to the following top-selling classes for their efforts during the See’s Candies fundraiser: Mrs. Young (kindergarten), Ms. Struthers and Ms. McCullough (5th grade), and Ms. Tsunashima (6th grade). Each of these winning classes will receive a pizza party. Thank you to all parents and students who supported this fundraiser.

LCAP Expenditures (LCFF Funding)
This school year, our students and parents are reaping the benefits of our LCAP allocation in the following ways:
Support AEF: In order for the Alhambra Educational Foundation (AEF) to continue to provide music and other valuable programs to our school, we need everyone’s support. If you have not already contributed to the AEF Fall Fund Drive, you may still do so online at www.aef4kids. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Yearbook Photos: Please send any photos that you have taken (or will take) of school events, field trips, and activities to Principal La Piana at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
