The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safe, convenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in San Ramon every year.

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

For the 2018-2019 School Year, the NA-16 TRAFFIX Bus will serve Neil Armstrong Elementary. 

Please consult the TRAFFIX website to see the route at https://ridetraffix.com.

Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018, and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.  The price for a discounted TRAFFIX Bus Pass is $260 – that’s just $1.45 per day for every day of the school year.

After June 15th, bus passes will be sold at the Regular Rate of $335.

Don’t wait! Visit http://RideTRAFFIX.com to purchase your pass starting April 23rd!

Questions? Call 925-866-8739 or email manager@ridetraffix.com.

State law gives families the option to transfer to a different school when there is space available. When schools have space, families can choose to transfer to another school within a district (intradistrict transfers) or to transfer to a school in another district (interdistrict transfers).

 

SRVUSD has moved up its intradistrict open enrollment window for elementary families. The open enrollment window for elementary schools is now open and closes on April 6, 2018. Families can find the link to the online intradistrict transfer request form and information about SRVUSD’s open enrollment/intradistrict transfer process at www.srvusd.net/transfers.

 

SRVUSD students will continue to have placement priority in our schools. However, after we place our resident students at their school of choice, because we now have space available, California law requires that we allow students from outside the district to apply to attend our schools (interdistrict transfers). Interdistrict transfers will only be accepted if there is space available. Students from outside the district must maintain acceptable academic performance, attendance and behavior. SRVUSD anticipates openings for interdistrict transfers students at nearly all SRVUSD schools.

Helping Your Student Manage Stress

 

Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Monte Vista High School Theatre

 

Teen stress is an important health issue. The early teen years are often marked by physical, cognitive, and emotional changes. Teens are also dealing with changing relationships, demands at school, pressure to succeed in life, college concerns, family tensions, and crammed schedules. Many are not prepared to handle high levels of stress and over time this can lead to depression and anxiety.

 

Presentations by Discovery Counseling Center and Contra Costa Crisis Center.

They talk to many of our students on a regular basis and are in touch with the many demands our students are facing.

Learn practical tips for parents in helping to support our students and build resiliency.

Dear Parents,

 

As our school year gets closer to our spring conference dates of February 28, March 1,2, and 19, we would like to remind families that spring conferences can be scheduled by parent/guardian request or by teacher invitation.  Our school district has high regard for consistent parent/student/teacher communication. We know that teachers contact families throughout the school year, and spring conferences are one other way to collaborate around support of your student. Thank you for your continued efforts to maximize positive home/school partnerships.

 

Respectfully,

Lorna Monteith

Neil Armstrong Families, it is through your generous donations and support that our school is able to offer enrichment programs to prepare students for success. Does your student benefit from paraprofessionals that enable smaller group learning in the classroom, fine arts with Ms. Tess, using the library with Ms. Golden, learning computer skills with Ms. Gupta, or getting support from reading specialist? All of these - and more- are possible because of the Eagle Fund. WE NEED YOUR HELP to make our fundraising efforts successful to continue to offer these programs.

The new Neil Armstrong Launch Pad is set to open soon!  Your child’s class will have the opportunity to sign-up for time in the Launch Pad on Mondays and Fridays, beginning September 11th.  The Launch Pad is our STEM Lab/Makerspace that will be a fun and educational experience for all!  Beyond the actual STEM learning that will take place, our Launch Pad will be an excellent venue for learning opportunities in problem solving, following instructions, patience, creativity, collaboration, communication, spatial thinking, inquiry-based learning, and more!  We are ramping up by starting with STEM-based centers, and will roll out our more technical activities and Makerspace projects once the Launch Pad is fully integrated.  We are looking forward to the Launch Pad experience becoming an integral part of our school community environment.

 

WE NEED YOU!

 

To that end, we need you!  Or… we need your Legos to be exact!  If you have any used or new Legos you would like to donate to our NA Launch Pad, please drop them off at the front office in the marked container by Friday, October 6th.  The more Legos the better!

 

In addition, we also need someone to execute Project- Build a Lego Wall!  We think it would be really cool to have a giant Lego Wall as part of the Launch Pad.  We have the supplies and instructions, we just need a person to volunteer to build it!  The wall will be 5X5 and fun for all!  Please contact Lorna Monteith, lmontei@srvusd.net in interested.  Thank you!
