Alta Sierra is adding the second choice option to our school lunch menu!
Beginning February 5th, students may choose between the regular school lunch menu offering and a cold lunch option. Each day of the week will have a different cold option for the month.
Take a look at the new menu. The second choice is on the very top.
Teachers will be taking lunch count with this option included.
This option is available for grades 1-5. If this pilot is successful, we will extend it to kindergarten.

Principal's Message

Do you ever watch your child and wonder if other kids act the same way?  Do you worry that you are the only ones struggling with math or reading or generally getting along with your kids?  
 
It is a great idea to join one of our Love and Logic Parenting groups!  These opportunities are so validating for parents with children of any age.  Parenting is a tough job but it can be made a little easier when you have other parents for support.  Love and Logic classes happen three times a year and last for 8 weeks.  Contact the school office for information.
 
Now if you would rather read more words of wisdom, here they are:
 
During the middle years of your youngster's childhood, many changes will oc­cur within the family. Your child is more independent than before, better able to care for herself, and more capable of contributing to chores and other household responsibilities. Most families discover that routines can be established, and in many ways life seems more settled. However, youngsters still need parental supervision and guidance.
 
During the middle childhood years, parents have two tasks that are espe­cially important. The first is learning to allow and encourage your child to en­ter the new world of school and friends alone. The second is learning to be parents at a distance. Once children enter school, parents spend less than half as much time with them as they did before. Parents thus need to be more efficient, more vigilant, and still very much involved in their children's lives in or­der to monitor, guide, and support them effectively.

School assumes a central role in your youngster's life when she reaches the age of five or six, drawing much of her attention and energy away from the family unit. Her elementary-school years can become a time of enormous satisfaction and excitement. As she learns to read and master other academic skills, she will develop a love of learning and a pride in her achievements. This can con­tribute to her self-esteem, not only because of her accomplishments in the classroom but also as she separates successfully from the home environment. In the process her teacher can become a source of support and an important role model in her life.
 
For some children, however, school may cause frustration and stress. Learn­ing disabilities can interfere with the joy of learning. Poor study habits and/or a lack of motivation can create academic difficulties. Sometimes youngsters may have a poor relationship with their teachers, or they may experience sep­aration anxiety that can interfere with their school attendance.
 
To make your own child's education as positive and productive as possible, closely monitor her academic progress and social adjustment, and get to know her teacher. Discuss with your child what she is learning in the classroom and how she feels about school. Encourage her to demonstrate her newly learned skills and to practice them with you. Supervise your child's homework (but don't do it for her), and make sure she is preparing herself well for tests. Limit the amount of television she watches and encourage her to read, write, and ex­press herself creatively through hobbies and sports. If she (or her teacher) re­ports any problem areas, communicate openly with school personnel, and try to figure out how best to help your youngster overcome her difficulties. Con­sult your pediatrician for suggestions to help solve these problems.
