We ended the week with our Sweetheart Paint Night sponsored by our awesome PTA. Everyone started with a clean canvas and in the end, every painting was a little different. It’s nice when you can express your own creativity.

We started off last week with Positive School Culture Assemblies where all students were reminded of our behavior expectations at Starlight.
Look, here is an example of excellent library behavior from Ms. Pyle’s TK/K class.
Here’s another example...Ms. Michelle caught Mrs. Jimenez’s students behaving over and over again so she recommended them for a class award and a treat! They behave even when no one is watching.
Ms. BJ and Mr. Jones give out Gold Tickets for cleaning the cafeteria. Kdg had excellent behavior in the MPR. Mrs. Dickinson’s 1st grade students celebrated their kind bucket-filling behavior!
We celebrated our Star students for their accomplishments in math, reading, writing, spelling, and great behavior.
Mrs. Casillas met with the new Cross Age Tutor group to review the expectations of their job.
Mrs. Casillas and I went around to classrooms to deliver perfect attendance awards for the 1st trimester of school. These students were also not late to school and didn’t leave early. Our attendance at Starlight has been good. Thanks for making it a priority to come to school every day. Last month, our TK students had the highest attendance, 98%!
We had fun finding out what you were learning in your classrooms again last week. Several students were sent to the office because they are earning so many AR points! Make sure you’re reading books and taking quizzes every week! Remember...the more you read, the better you will do in every subject.
Our Starlight students did a great job at the district Spelling Bee! Andee, Alain, and Jayceon competed against middle schoolers. Eileena was there as an alternate just in case she was needed. Alain, who is an English learner, came in 5th place out of all of the contestants. Wow!
Thanks to those of you who came out for the Panera Fundraiser! Starlight families practically filled up the whole restaurant!
Jackson says, “May your week be filled with learning and lots of laughter!”
Have a great week!

You all looked so nice for Picture Day! I can’t wait to see how you will look in our yearbook!
We got to see some great learning take place again this week. Students were listening, paying attention, raising their hands, using technology properly and collaborating with each other.
We passed out our attendance trophies to the class in each grade level that had the best attendance for the month of August. Miss Butler’s class had the best attendance in the whole school, wow!
Superintendent Davis came to visit us on Friday. He, and Mrs. Casillas and I were so impressed with what we saw. We saw students working independently so teachers could work with small groups, beautiful classroom walls with lots of resources, we heard students speaking Spanish in the Dual Language classrooms, we saw students writing sentences in Kindergarten, we heard students stating their learning targets and success criteria, we heard call and response chants, saw students working with manipulatives, and EVERYBODY was ENGAGED! Nice job!
This week, Mrs. Salinas was a pirate in a boat! You never know what she is up to next!
Friday was Blue Day and we got to celebrate our Star Students!
Jackson says Palindrome Week starts tomorrow. That’s when the date is the same forwards and backwards. That will last for 10 days.
