Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
The first trimester is now complete. Students have received their first report card for the 2017-2018 school year. I am very pleased with the hard work students have put forth to take responsibility for their own education. I would like to offer my congratulations and hope students will continue to work to their full potential and establish a love for learning.
Students: Your parents and teachers are proud of your efforts and accomplishment. You should be too, as long as you strived for your best. Fresh starts and new beginnings are always welcomed. Students should take advantage of the new trimester and use their free time during winter break wisely. Continue to work hard and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank parents for partnering with us at our monthly Coffee Tea Chats, parent meetings, workshops and volunteer opportunities. Parent involvement is vital and allows parents to contribute and connect to their child’s school and become active members of the Repetto School Community.As always, we appreciate our parents’ support and commitment to their child’s education and our school.

LCAP Expenditures (LCFF Funding)
This school year, our students and parents are reaping the benefits of our LCAP allocation in the following ways:
Girls Build Leadership Summit We are excited to announce that Repetto School has been selected to participate in the Girls Build Leadership Summit at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday, December 15th. Forty-five (45) of our 6th through 8th grade girls in middle school will have the exclusive opportunity to attend this very special event that will feature former U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, as one of the keynote speakers.
Girls Build is an initiative run by the LA Promise Fund. One of its primary purposes is to challenge our young women from public middle and high schools to use STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) principles and 21st Century learning skills to effect social change. Girls Build motivates young women to engage in issues they care about and prepares them to solve the problems and issues of tomorrow.
Though this is the first summit held by the Girls Build Program, we hope this program will continue to provide future opportunities to empower our young women. For more information, please visit http://girlsbuildla.weebly.com/faq.html.
Spark of Love Toy Drive: Between now and December 20th, Repetto has joined ABC 7, AUSD Gateway to Success, the Alhambra Fire Department and the Alhambra Police Department for the Spark of Love Toy Drive. We hope many of our Repetto families and friends will donate an unwrapped toy or stuffed animal to our main office. Thank you in advance for supporting this community cause and for generosity.
Winter Grams: Student Council will sell winter grams to be delivered to students in the classrooms. If you would like to send a special message to your child, winter grams will be for sale in front of the school at dismissal times from Monday, December 4th through Wednesday, December 13th.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
See's Candy Fundraiser - See's Candy orders are due this Wednesday, November 29th. Please support the 5th grade classes and order some delicious candy for the holidays. You will receive the order before Winter Break!
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.
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 will not have a Coffee Tea Chat for the month of November but we look forward to seeing you at our next Coffee Tea Chat at 8:00am on Thursday, 12/21/17, the day before winter recess.
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.

California Accountability Model and School Dashboard
The California Accountability Model and School Dashboard is California’s new accountability and continuous improvement system. This system provides information on how local educational agencies and schools are meeting the needs of our state’s diverse student population, based on a concise set of measures. The dashboard takes the place of our school’s past API score and contains reports that display the performance of local educational agencies (LEAs), schools and student group on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, weaknesses and areas that need improvement.
