Dear Aspen Families,
It is hard to believe that it is already March! We have come so far already, and we have so much to look forward to this Spring. Our teachers and staff have been working hard not only to prepare for the upcoming Spring events like state testing, Open House, and end-of-year activities, but we have already started planning for the 2019-2020 school year.
In an effort to address a very important need of our school, our staff has been discussing a plan on how to create teacher collaboration time by grade level and across grade levels to better meet the needs of all of our students. Our teachers, staff, School Site Council, and PFA are all in support of our endeavor to improve instructional strategies and create more time for teachers to discuss student needs using data-driven information.
This plan includes a change to our bell schedule for next school year which includes an early release on Fridays. Below is the proposed schedule. Our next step requires approval from the CVUSD School Board. In addition, if you would like to hear more about the new bell schedule, Common Planning Time, and our goals for next year, you are welcome to attend one of the informational meetings being held the week of March 25th.
Proposed Bell Schedule
TK and K - Monday - Friday 8:15 am - 1:20 pm
1st - 5th grade - Monday - Thursday 8:15 am - 2:40 pm; Friday 8:15 am - 1:30 pm
