Principal's Message

Dear Cortada families,

It's hard to believe it is now March and we have only 2 and a half months left of school.  The year has been flying by and our students, teachers, and staff have been working hard learning everyday and making the most of their Distance Learning time together.  

As we near the 4th quarter we can think of all the wonderful things our students have done and we want to continue that progress.  Our students have been completing classroom assignments, i-Ready/ST Math minutes, and Reading Counts assessments.  Students have also taken time at home to complete STEM monthly activities such as catapults, marble roller coasters, and now their own boat.  

Please continue to have students attend class everyday and attend all classes, including ELD/ALD class which may be with a different teacher and afterschool intervention if they have been assigned to a teacher.    

Parents, if you at any time have a question about your child’s education, please feel free to call our office at 626-575-2391.  We will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.  

Go Colts!
Estimadas familias de Cortada,

Es difícil de creer que ahora estamos en marzo y solo nos quedan 2 meses y medio de clases. El año ha pasado volando y nuestros estudiantes, maestros y personal han estado trabajando duro para aprender todos los días y aprovechando al máximo su tiempo de aprendizaje a distancia juntos.

A medida que nos acercamos al cuarto trimestre podemos pensar en todas las cosas maravillosas que nuestros estudiantes han hecho y queremos continuar con ese progreso. Nuestros estudiantes han estado completando asignaciones en el salón de clases, minutos de i-Ready / ST Math y evaluaciones de Reading Counts. Los estudiantes también se han tomado un tiempo en casa para completar las actividades mensuales de STEM, como catapultas, montañas rusas de mármol y ahora su propio bote.

Continúe haciendo que los estudiantes asistan a clase todos los días y asistan a todas las clases, incluida la clase de ELD / ALD, que puede ser con un maestro diferente e intervención después de la escuela si se les ha asignado un maestro.

Padres, si en algún momento tienen alguna pregunta sobre la educación de su hijo, no duden en llamar a nuestra oficina al 626-575-2391. Estaremos encantados de ayudarle con cualquier pregunta que pueda tener.

¡Vamos Colts!
