Friday, May 17

Thank you so much for coming last night to celebrate all of the learning at our amazing school! As we mentioned kindergarten has not reached their happy ending yet.  We will continue to work with our fairy tale project for the next few weeks. In addition to this we are also working on all our end of year assessments.  Every minute of the last 17 days is important and valuable.  Please do everything you can to ensure your student is in class.


State of the School Meeting

Our annual State of the School meeting is Tuesday, May 28th, starting at 6:30 pm. Many important topics will be shared at this meeting.  It expected that at least one parent from every family will be in attendance. Babysitting by our 7th graders will be provided.




The cheetah creations are AMAZING!!!! The Jenga blocks, Dominos , Cheetah Quilt and Windchime are all available to be bid on now, through the Family Festival on May 31. The Fun starts at 3pm and goes until 7pm.

Each class has a booth to manage for the festival.  There are also a number to school-wide booths to help cover.  The only way we can have this great community event is if every family gives a little bit of their time.

School Wide Booths


Thank you for all that you have done!

Be sure to come by and have your volunteer participation appreciated on Thursday, May 23 at 8:00am in the Gym.  The Kinders will be coming buy for a quick song.


Kindergarten Field Day

Let's end kindergarten with a blow-out bash!


This special day will be on Tuesday, June 11 from 11:30- 2:30 pm at the Community Park. It will be a fun day celebrating the end of the year. We will have food and fun! 

 There will be 10 games that will be great fun as well as help us use the cooperation skills we learned this year. 

Your child should be dressed for wet play time. They will be sliding on blocks of ice and playing with wet sponges. Board shorts are a good idea because their rear ends can get really wet. Even though we might get wet, all children must be covered up. Boys will need to keep their shirts on at all times. We will also need to keep our shoes on the whole time. Sandals are a good idea. 

We need a lot of volunteers! We will need drivers, team leaders, game leaders, gazebo reservers, and food and other donations. We have set up a volunteer spot for you to sign up to help. Younger siblings are allowed but they will be the responsibility of the parent.

Sign Up: 


Book Bags and Homework are done for the year.  Please be sure that yours has been returned.  Families should continue to read together books of your own choosing for 20 minutes or more everyday.

Thank You:


Thank you to all of you that went Tuesday’ s MHUSD board meeting night. Your support is greatly appreciated. A special thank you to all of you that stayed to the bitter end (midnight!) and chaperoned on the field trip the next day!


The trip to Levi stadium was a great experience for the kinders.  They learned all about how motion is in the world.  They went into the movement lab, on the field, in the STEAM classroom and the 49er History museum.  Kinders learned how lift, drag, thrust and gravity all affect the game of football. Mr. Coach is extending these lesson here at CSMH with a football unit.


The field trip to Children’s Discovery Museum will be another hands on learning about motion in our world.  All parents are invited to join us for this one.  Student admission is covered by the CSMH Foundation, but adults must pay for themselves.   We can offer you tickets at a discounted price of $8 if you have the money sent in by 3:00 pmTuesday, December 12.  Otherwise, you can purchase tickets online or at the door for $15.

We will be taking VTA from the Santa Teresa station to the CDM stop and then back.  Although we return to school by 1:15 we will go back to class until the end of the regular day.

We are again asking that lunches come in disposable bags. Students will not be taking backpacks and we are limited on storage space at the museum.


Don’t forget to schedule coming to see the Holiday Motion Parade Wednesday December 20 at 8:15 am.  We start promptly at 8:15 and are done within 15 minutes.  All floats are due with their check off list in the classrooms by Tuesday the 19th.


Later in the morning on the 20th we will end our motion PBL with the motion party. There are still spots available to help at the stations

Remember it is a minimum day, we will be done at 12:00!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for coming Thursday night to see and celebrate your student's work.  Hopefully you were able to make it to the 3rd annual Bug Broadway Bonanza.  The kinder bugs did an impressive job of educating everyone about why a bug is helpful or harmful to our farm.



When we return on Monday kinder will be starting a new project focusing on the forces of motion.  This project will include an at home family piece.  The culmination of our “Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions” project will be a winter holiday parade with floats made by kindergarten engineers. Each kindergartener and their family will sketch, build, test, improve and communicate about a holiday float that represents a family’s holiday traditions. This float must be able to move around the whole school campus at a parade on Wednesday, December 21. More information is in their Friday folder.



We also have an exciting fieldtrip to go along at the 49ers Museum at Levi Stadium.  This is a trip we applied for last year and got on the waitlist for this year.  They have just given us a date of Dec. 6. This is unfortunately a minimum day and we will have to leave school by 7:45, but it is an opportunity we could not pass up.  We are very limited on the number of chaperones that may attend.  We will be selecting those that can take 4 or more students and already have fingerprinting and driver paperwork on file in the office. If you plan on driving you own student, you will need to drop them off and then return at 2pm to pick them up. In today’s Friday folder is the trip permission slip.  There are 2 separate places on the form that you must sign.  There is also a separate consent form from the 49ers that also must be read, signed and returned.  All attendees, students and adults must have the signed form in order to attend. More details to follow.



Thank you for all the wonderful book donations from the Scholastic book fair.  Every dollar you spent goes towards improving CSMH.  Even though the fair was packed up today you still have an opportunity to shop.  For the next two weeks the online store will be open and CSMH will continue to get credit. Go to . Your child’s wish list is in their Friday folder in case you haven’t seen it.


Have a wonderful week off!
