SCHOOL PRIDE DAY MUSTACHE MOVEMBER NOVEMBER 17
On Friday, November 17 we will have our next School Pride Day: Movember Mustache Day. November, newly identified as “Movember” is an increasingly popular mustache-growing charity event that raises funds and awareness for men’s health. Movember participants choose to grow a mustache and move by walking or running 60 miles throughout the month. You can make your own mustache out of paper or felt, or use make-up or face paint to creatively paint one on your upper lip. Encourage your student to join in the fun and wear a Mustache to school next Friday.
THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL SNACKS!
Thank you for the wonderful and generous teacher lounge full of snacks during our parent-teacher conference week. The staff very much appreciated the thoughtfulness. Thank you to all parents for attending our important parent conferences.

GROWTH/POSITIVE MINDSET ASSEMBLY ON DECEMBER 1
NED’s Mindset Mission Assembly is visiting our school! NED and our students take a journey to find their positive mindset. The show is filled with storytelling, humor, illusions and amazing yo-yo tricks where our kids learn the hidden message in NED's name: Never give up — understand The Power of YET Encourage others — spark courage in other people Do your best® — always be learning and growing. Does your child want to learn to yo? A yo-yo is both a mindset tool and a tangible reminder of NED's message. While learning to yo, children will make mistakes, try again and improve. The week following the assembly we will sell yo-yos before school and establish a space on campus where students can use their yo-yo safely for that one week.
CAMP KEEP FOR SIXTH GRADE
Camp is quickly approaching for sixth graders. Please be sure to return all important forms and stay healthy between now and December 4. If you are an Adams parent and do not have a child going to camp but are willing to donate a sleeping bag or hiking books for students to borrow please let Ms. Fresch know, email@example.com
Prioritizing Self Care
With the break right around the corner, it's important to remember to use the time to fill our cup and prioritize ourselves. Whether it's a park to the park or beach, watching your favorite holiday movie, we have to remind ourselves that we do our best work when our “cup” is filled. Here are some helpful tips to use with our children. What are some ways you use self care in your daily life?
RECOGNIZE, RESPOND, AND REPORT (3Rs)
SBUSD denounces and condemns All Forms of Hate and Biased actions and encourages our students and staff to Report Incidents. As part of the district’s effort to Recognize, Respond and Report (3Rs), easier access to report incidents will now be available on student iPads.
Here is How: Santa Barbara Unified students in grades 4-12 and staff impacted by Hate or Bias can now access an Online Reporting Form on District issued iPad Home Screens. This reporting option is in addition to the already released QR Code that is posted on fliers in classrooms and high-traffic public spaces at our school sites and workspaces. Form more information, see the Parent Square post sent out by the district earlier this week.
REMINDERS FROM PREVIOUS THURSDAY MESSAGE
PARKING LOT SAFETY CONCERNS
Both in the morning before 8 am, and after school for RAP and AOK pick-up, parents have been parking in the fire lane both near the front office and along the cafe. At no time should a parent leave their car unattended in these areas. Both the school bus and emergency vehicles need to be able to access these lanes at all times. The SBPD will begin ticketing vehicles in these areas left unattended. It is also not safe to drop off your child near the front office, or in the middle of the parking lot. You must always pull all the way to the kindergarten area, even when no one is on campus. By stopping and unloading in this area you are blocking incoming traffic and the flow of the parking lot when staff arrive on campus. Thank you for following our parking lot rules.
