Junior High Debate "Golden Gavel" Winners
Sassoon P. and Kayla B.
The "Golden Gavel" is given to the over-all winner of the Orange County Junior High Debate Tournaments.  Kayla won at the first tournament and Sassoon won at the second tournament of this season!  Congrats!

Happy New Year! 
Welcome Back!! To the second half of the school year!  Actually there are 108 days left in this year.  Kindergarten has a very fun-filled “100th Day of School” celebration on February 11.  Wow this year is moving fast! Everyone came back to school with a renewed vigor for learning and many New Year’s Resolutions!  

Fifth Grade visited the Bowers’s Museum to participate in the hands on exhibit about Benjamin Franklin “Search of a Better World”.  They had a great time learning about Benjamin Franklin and what a great inventor, scientist, writer, musician, philanthropist and humorist that one of our founding fathers was!
Our Tri-Way Basketball teams were back in action, the boys beat Heritage Oak  41-25 and the girls won 43-19.  The boys team is now 4-2  and the girls are 6-0!  Come out and cheer them on for their next home game on Thursday, January 13.

(Reservation Date extended to January 14)
It's that time of think about the END of the year!  Yearbook ads and personalization need to be ordered through our yearbook company by January 21, 2011.
A personal ad is a great way to let your kids know how proud you are of them!  Eighth grade parents-this is a great opportunity to celebrate your child's promotion to high school!  See sample ads attached.
$100. deposit is due by December 17 and there are a limited number of pages orders will be taken in the order that they are received.  The remaining balance of your ad and completed ad or photographs and text (I will then lay out the ad for you) will be due on January 21, 2011.
Personalize Your Child's Yearbook
A great way to personalize your child's yearbook!  You can have their name printed on the front, and add a second line (you can have their teacher's name, year, or something special about the year imprinted !) 29 characters per line, and then you can add a special 'icon' such as basketball, ballet shoes, or lots of  other choices!
Please fill out the attached form and return full payment for your order by January 21.  Questions?  (714) 693-3812  Vicky Mantell

Blackboard Library Pages 
The new Blackboard Library Pages for use at home and at school are exciting new educational tools that make learning even more fun and accessible!  Here is a short list of the many things available to our families:
• Two library sites - Kidzone is for students in preschool through the fourth grade and Teenzone is for students in Grades 5-8.  The links in each are very similar but are age appropriate.
• Our youngest students can experience the fun of learning with educational videos, age-appropriate digital and print books that are read to them, and wonderful educational games and activities. 
• Access to our Library Researcher - Students can now check online to see what books are available in their school library.  They will eventually be able to put books on hold from home.  As if that is not enough, students and parents will also be able to access book descriptions and book reviews online!
• Research sites including BrainPop, dictionary, thesaurus, Pebble Go Science, Discovery Education, Gale and safe research sites.
• Research tools for students that will help them with writing bibliographies, organizing a research paper, links to search engines, printable tools and links to local public libraries.
• Hundreds of digital and video books including links to apps for Kindle and Nook!
• Links to all the Renaissance Learning Products such as Home Connect and AR Bookfind, as well as Parent Guides to AR and AM.
• Many links to student-oriented current events and periodicals as well as a ton of links to children's authors.
• Last, but definitely not least, links to hundreds of educational games and activities.
We encourage you to log on to Blackboard ( and check out the Kidzone and/or the Teenzone today!
