First Day of School 2016-2017

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.



for 2016-2017 will be available in the Front Office for pick-up on January 25, 2016.  

Registration (return of completed packets) begins February 1.


Cypress Elementary Students in grades 3-5 will be completing the annual State Assessments “California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress” (CAASPP) during the month of May. Please check your child’s teacher for exact dates for testing.  Each class will test on different dates. 

Principal Spotlight

On behalf of the staff and students at Cypress, I would like to thank the PTA for their generous donation to help assist with the purchase of ActivePanel Interactive LED panels.  The funds that were donated came from the previous Technology Booster Club that was in existence before our school became a PTA about three years ago.  With this generous donation the school is able to continue to make improvements in the area of technology along with the Measure I funding at a quicker pace.  This past year Measure I funds were used to update the classroom student computers which are used for centers, research, and web based learning programs.  Also, the kindergarten classes were also able to purchase 10 I-pads.  Parents and Cypress staff will continue to discuss and plan on the upcoming purchases for Measure I for the 2016-2017 school year at the upcoming School Site Council Meeting on Wednesday.   This upcoming summer the school will be retrofitted for wireless communication.  The school will continue to share the developments of how the Measure I funds will be allocated.   In addition to the generous donation the PTA elected the Executive Board for the 2016-2017 school year.  At this time I would like to congratulate the new officers of the PTA Executive Board, and I look forward to working with you in the upcoming year.
