Cypress Elementary

The Cypress staff is committed to educating students to their potential and helping them on their way to becoming productive members of society.  Cypress students will participate in a standards-based, comprehensive program that meets their individual needs in a positive, child-centered, cooperative environment fostered by parent involvement, a dedicated, caring staff and a supportive community.  

Cypress students will become:

  • Self-actualized learners who have mastered a challenging, core curriculum and believe themselves to be capable, significant and able to mold  their future as they reflect on their personal accomplishments and direct their own thinking.
  • Skillful communicators who are able to readily acquire and effectively express information, ideas, and emotions through reading, writing, speaking, listening and the use of technology. 
  • Problem-solvers who are able to generate practical and innovative solutions to complex intellectual and social problems using critical and creative problems-solving skills.  
  • Socially conscientious citizens, who are responsible for their own behaviors, are able to work collaboratively, and demonstrate honesty, empathy fairness, and respect for others as contributing citizens in their ever-enlarging world.  



The second Language Arts Theme in third grade about community is rife with businesses that help their local neighborhood.  In Boom Town, a girl’s bakery is the first business in a series of business that create a town.  In the next few stories, people save a fishing village by selling butterflies, start a charity to save a zoo, and build homes for people who need them. Our Math Unit about addition suggests that students have a sale where they predict their profit. All of these subjects  really added up to a Maker Fair! 

We started by reading about 9 local charities.  After each student chose their favorite, they were assigned to groups.  Then the groups decided what to make, their prices, and predicted their profits.  Now students are making posters and banners to advertise.  We hope that the 1st - 5th grade Cypress Cubs will find items they’d like to buy for 50 or 75 cents on November 20th, at lunch.  So bring your quarters!

All the money will go toward helping the following local charities: Arc, Friends of the Island Fox, Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library, Habitat for Humanity, The Humane Society, and the Ojai Raptor Center.

Thanks for your support!
