Hello Tiger Families; 
 
Welcome April !!!

We are entering our final sprint of the year with only 44 school days left. June 11 is the last day of instruction.
 
Get ready for an extraordinary event - a solar eclipse is coming! This rare astronomical event is a great opportunity for students to explore science, space, and the wonders of the natural world.
 
 On April 8, 2024, the moon will perfectly align between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow upon our planet. The next total solar eclipse visible from the United States won't happen until 2044. 
 
The solar eclipse is an exhilarating phenomenon where the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, partially or completely obscuring the Sun’s light. The estimated time for the eclipse to begin is 10:06am and will end at approximately 12:22pm. 
 
Our school will be operating on the regular schedule, and our staff will be discussing the eclipse with the students. It is crucial to remember not to look directly at the sun during the eclipse without protective eyewear to avoid permanent eye damage.

For safety reasons, we will not have an outdoor recess. All classes will have an indoor recess unless teachers have specific planned activities for students and students have glasses. 
 
As we move into Spring, state testing is just around the corner for our third, fourth and fifth grade students. Students will be testing the week of May 6 - May 10. During the week that your child is testing, make certain that your son/daughter rests properly each night, arrives for school on time, and is not distracted at home.  Our teachers are scheduling a parent meeting for April 17th, during which you'll receive further details.

Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter is now enrolling for the 2024-2025 school year. Registration forms can be picked up at the main office Monday thru Friday between the hours of 9am-3pm. 
To enroll in Kindergarten your child must be 5 by September 1 of the current school year. To enroll in UTK your child must turn 5 between September 2, 2023 and September 1, 2024 of the current school year.  
 
Lost and Found Alert!!!!
Our lost and found is growing by the day. If your child is missing anything please have them check the lost and found. We will be bagging it up and donating the clothing the weekend of April 20th. 
 
Be an Attendance Hero!
The month of April has 20 days of instruction. Parental involvement is a key influence on a student’s school attendance and parents can help encourage even reluctant students to attend. When parents are committed to making school attendance a priority, children will come to understand the importance of education. Try to avoid taking additional days off during the school year to ensure that your child does not miss out on academic enrichment activities. Equally important is making sure that your student arrives at school on time. Please make sure your student is in school by 7:55a.m.
Attendance makes all the difference...
Send your student to school every day!

WHAT'S NEW???

2022-2026 LAUSD STRATEGIC PLAN: READY FOR THE WORLD
For the next four years, Los Angeles Unified will focus on a singular goal: ensure ALL our students graduate READY FOR THE WORLD – to thrive in college, career, and life. This Strategic Plan represents a promise to our entire Los Angeles Unified community that we will achieve this goal. With this plan, we are establishing a new, inspiring vision on how we can improve student achievement and close opportunity gaps. We believe that by outlining a singular goal, and a vision for achieving this goal, we can ensure that everyone who is a part of Los Angeles Unified will be able to support and uplift our district together.
 
Our singular goal: ensure ALL our students graduate READY FOR THE WORLD – to thrive in college, career, and life.
 
Through a robust listening and engagement effort capturing diverse voices from across the District, we have established a shared vision of what student success looks like and what being ready for the world means; this plan will serve as a roadmap outlining all of the steps we will take to realize this vision. This plan is designed to inform actions that can be taken at the school site, through the district office, and in our communities to drive student success and move toward our singular goal, creating alignment across the District on the ways we can best serve our students and our school communities.
 
We acknowledge that the last two years have been difficult for our students, staff, and families – the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us in many ways and forced us to rethink how we provide for our students.
And while we will continue to respond to the impact of a pandemic still present in our communities, this plan will allow us to elevate the ways in which we have adapted positively to serve our students and highlight the promising practices we will institute to carry us forward. We will capture the urgency of our current moment and work together to transform into a stronger, more inclusive, and more responsive district.
