"Only by binding together as a single force will we remain strong and unconquerable."
Thursday, HRPA had one of our monthly fire drills. The students did a wonderful job walking quickly and quietly to their designated spaces. A special thank you to all the parents that were in the building during the drill. We always appreciate your assistance and support.
LCAP District Survey:
This is a very important survey to gather information regarding our district and school site programs as we plan for the future needs of our students and staff. The results of this survey will have a significant impact on budget decisions and programs. Your input is vital. This survey may only be taken once per family and we thank you in advance for your participation. Please click HERE to take the survey.
Our 2nd Annual Spaghetti Feed is right around the corner! This year's Spaghetti Feed will take place on Saturday, February 7th from 5:30-8:30pm at the Roseville Veterans Memorial Hall in Royer Park. It is a western themed, family-friendly event with yummy food (catered by Mary's Pizza Shack), entertainment and LOTS of raffle prizes! Students will be coming home today with a flyer and pre-sale order form. This year all food will be pre-sale only. Raffle tickets are also available for pre-sale at half the price they will be at the door (4/$1 pre-sale and 2/$1 at the door). Get your order in early and save money! We will have lots of fantastic raffle prizes as well as bake sale items that can be purchased with raffle tickets. Pre-sale starts today and will conclude on February 3rd.
The 5th grade class will be selling Valentine treats. We will be selling a small bag of popcorn, provided by the Popcorn Store from Roseville and a small candy treat. The yummy gifts can be personalized with a message from you or your child. Parents you can send these to your children and /or your child can send these to their friends or teacher. The money we earn will be used toward our Pigeon Point Field Trip. The cost for this yummy bag of popcorn and treat is $1.00. Your order form must be turned in no later than February 9th.
Art Show and Auction:
Please save the date for our first ever Beautifully Made Art Show and Auction, Friday, April 17, 2015 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. We are actively looking for donations of auction items for this event. We are trying to keep items in the spirit of "Beautifully Made". If you have items that you would like to donate, please contact Renee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spirit Wear Sale:
Stay warm and show your LION PRIDE! We have zippered, hooded, Placer Academy sweatshirts available for sale. They are regularly $25 on sale for $15. T-shirts have been reduced from $15 to $8. These are available for purchase in the office. Please make checks payable to HRPA PTO. Click here for more information.
Timeliness Is Important:
Just a reminder that our students' hours of instruction are 8:10 am to 3:00 pm. If you are bringing your child to school after 8:10am, they are walking in to class already in session and playing catch up. If you are picking up your child after 3:10pm, staff is spending overtime supervising your child and waiting for you to arrive. Please help our school and staff by being on time!
Scientific Method through a Cricket Experiment:
Third graders learned all about the scientific method through observing preferences of crickets. They compared grass to sand, pears to peanut butter, wet sand to dry sand, dark to light and hidden to open. They collected data every minute, then analyzed it to determine what was preferred by the crickets.
