     Dear Parents/Guardians:

    As we continue to implement the California State Standards in Mathematics, there are still many parents who express frustration when helping their children with their homework. There are concerns that the “new math” has replaced the traditional “tried and true” methods, and that it requires students to learn multiple approaches that are confusing and unnecessarily complicated. Many of today’s parents learned to add whole numbers by using the “so-called” standard algorithm: lining numbers up vertically and adding each column, carrying when necessary. If you really think about it, math was learned as a series of memorized facts, formulas and shortcuts or tricks. As a result, many students struggled with math because they did not have the conceptual understanding behind the math operations. While our students still continue to learn the algorithm method, they are now learning how to break numbers up in ways that help them to think about a number as something more than just a symbol. More importantly, there is now the expectation for our students to demonstrate their understanding so that they can use and apply mathematics when they leave the classroom.  We want our students to explain their thinking, show how they thought about an answer, and be able to choose different strategies for different problems. I recently came across a video entitled “Why is Math Different Now?” and thought it was a terrific video for parents. (https://vimeo.com/110807219?ref=fb-share)

    The California State Standards in Mathematics are both old and new. As a parent, you should expect many things from these standards, but above all you should expect your child to reap the benefits of what’s new.


    We are pleased to announce that parents are doing a great job of getting their children to school on time. Keep up the fantastic job! I would like to remind families that excused absences will only be counted for sick days, doctor appointments, religious holidays and if there is a death in the immediate family. If your child misses school for other reasons, their absence will be counted as unexcused. It is very important that students come to school each day so they do not miss valuable instruction. If you are planning fun family trips such as going to Disneyland or going skiing, we ask that you plan these activities during our scheduled vacation days. Thank you for developing good habits with your children and teaching them that school is too important to miss.

    Lisa Denham, Principal
