    Dear Solana Highlands Families,


    The MAPS (Measures of Academic Progress) winter window has opened.  Over the next few weeks your child will be participating in testing that is conducted in their classroom and on the iPad.  For our kindergarten students, this will be their first experience with computerized testing.  MAP parent resources can be located here.  To help support a successful testing experience, it is suggested to:

    • Follow a daily family routine
    • Get adequate sleep
    • Schedule doctor’s appointment’s outside of the testing window (check with your teacher)
    • Start the day with a healthy breakfast
    • Arrive to school on time
    • Be Positive

    Dolphin Dash

    Don't forget the 13th annual Dolphin Dash is coming up on Jan. 31st.  Please, remember to set up your pledge star page and send out your requests. The class who sends out the most pledge requests will win a Popsicle party with principal Jara.  Also, a raffle will be held this Friday Jan. 17th at the end of the day, 15 names will be selected for prizes.  Check out the Seesaw slide show for all the details.

    Drop Off and Dismissal

    Thank you for the continued partnership to keep our children safe during drop off and dismissal by:

    • Following traffic procedures
    • Using the cross walks
    • Holding children’s hands while crossing the street
    • Keeping dogs outside the gates and on leashes
    • Always wearing helmets when using scooters, skateboards and bikes
    • Partnering with our supervision staff
