ANNOUNCEMENTS Dia de los Muertos/Fall Festival – Saturday, November 3 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Join us for this signature Edison event! Conferences – Make sure you have signed up for a Parent-Teacher Conference Nov. 6-9th. These conferences are an important way to see how your child has been doing this fall and to make a plan to make sure they are on track to meet academic and social/ emotional growth goals by the end of the year. Tuesday, November 6 is a pupil free day and November 7, 8, 9 are early dismissal days to allow for conference appointments. Site Council Nominations – We are still looking for nominations of parents to serve on Site Council. There are two vacancies and training is provided. Meetings are once per month from 4:00-6:00 pm. Please consider nominating yourself for one of these important positions. Nomination Forms are included again this week. Halloween Parade – Wed., October 31; 9:00 am Edison field – Please let your child’s teacher know if you would like an alternate activity for your child. Remember, no masks that obscure vision, no props that look like weapons or which could be a hazard in a crowded parade. Make sure your child has a change of clothes for the rest of the day.

Sibling Preference for 2019-20 TK and K Applications are due November 2. Applications to claim a sibling preference for Seaside Preschool are due November 15. See Yoly immediately for an application.

Building the Dia de los Muertos Altars – If you can spare some time the morning or afternoon of Friday, November 2, come and help build the classroom altars. Contact your room rep for specific times. Volunteers are still needed for set up, booths, and clean up.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: ELECTION DAY: A GREAT TEACHING OPPORTUNITY This coming Tuesday, November 6 is election day in the United States. While we teach civics as part of your child’s curriculum at school, please consider using the fact that we have a pupil free day on November 6 to give your child some hands-on civics education. Civics is the study of the rights and duties of citizenship. All our students need to understand how the system works – whether they are currently citizens or may become citizens someday. One of the best ways to familiarize children with the process of voting is to share it with them. When I was a child, my parents woke me up early and took me to the polls with them before they went to work. My parents discussed the issues with us as they marked their sample ballots. I grew up to be a voter in part because my parents were voters. But I also vote because our Constitution initially did not allow women, people of color, native peoples, or people without property to vote and because it has been a long and dogged struggle (continuing today) to gain the right for all citizens to vote. There are many things that we vote on each year that affect us all. For example: whether our schools have enough resources; if we have laws that promote affordable housing; what wage and labor laws will be; the extent to which we protect the environment, uphold civil rights, or create fair elections; how high taxes will be and which groups will be taxed most heavily; what sort of laws and policies will govern immigration and refugees; how we will count people in the Census, etc. And, in each election cycle, voters choose candidates who share their beliefs and can convert these ideas into laws. Whether these are candidates for school board, city council, mayors, governors, representatives to state or federal government, judges, and even the President – they all work for us. And the way that we hire or fire them is by showing up to vote. If you think that a few votes don’t matter, think again! Many critical decisions are made by a small minority of people who actually register and show up to vote. This year many contests will be decided by just a few votes. In the mid-term elections, for example, usually only 40% of registered voters actually exercise their privilege and cast a ballot. And nearly a quarter of citizens who are eligible to vote, don’t register or vote. Why don’t we all use a little bit of children’s pupil free day on Election Day to build their knowledge about civic participation and create the next generation of active and engaged voters! ¡Su voto es su voz! / Your vote is your voice!

Día de los Muertos/Festival de Otoño- el sábado, 3 de noviembre de 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. ¡Acompáñenos para este evento tradicional de Edison! Conferencias - Asegúrense de apuntarse para una Conferencia para Padres y Maestros del 6 a 9 de noviembre. Estas conferencias son una manera importante de ver cómo su hijo/a ha estado progresando este otoño y para hacer un plan para asegurar que sigan al paso para lograr las metas académicas y de crecimiento social/emocional para el fin de año. El martes, 6 de noviembre es un día libre de estudiantes y el 7, 8 y 9 de noviembre son días de salida temprana para permitir tiempo para las citas de conferencias. Nominaciones del Concilio Escolar - Todavía estamos buscando nominaciones de padres para servir en el Concilio Escolar. Hay dos vacantes y se provee entrenamiento. Las reuniones son una vez por mes de 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Por favor considere nominarse a usted mismo par uno de estos puestos importantes. Las formas de nominaciones se incluyeron en este paquete de nuevo. Desfile de Halloween – miércoles, 31 de octubre; 9:00 am en el patio de Edison – por favor avísele al maestro/a de su hijo/a si prefiere una actividad alterna para su hijo/a. Acuérdense, no máscaras que cubren la vista, no objetos como armas o que pueden ser peligrosos en un desfile congestionado. Asegúrese de que su hijo/a tenga un cambio de ropa para el resto del día. Preferencia de Hermanitos 2019-20 – Las solicitudes para TK y K deben ser entregadas a más tardar el 2 de noviembre. Para recibir la preferencia de hermanitos en el Preescolar Seaside deben ser entregadas antes del 15 de noviembre. Hablen con Yoly inmediatamente. Construir los Altares del Día de los Muertos – Si pueden compartir algo de tiempo en la mañana o en la tarde el viernes, 2 de noviembre, vengan y ayuden a construir los altares de sus salones. Comuníquense con los representantes de su salón para tiempos específicos. Todavía se necesitan voluntarios para la preparación, puestos y limpieza.

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: DÍA DE ELECCIONES: UNA GRAN OPORTUNIDAD DE ENSEÑANZA Este mi martes, 6 de noviembre es el día de elecciones en los Estados Unidos. Aunque enseñamos cívica como parte del curso de estudios en la escuela, por favor consideren usar el hecho de que tenemos un día libre de estudiantes el 6 de noviembre para darle a su hijo/a una educación cívica. La cívica es el estudio de los derechos y responsabilidades de la ciudadanía. Todos nuestros estudiantes necesitan comprender cómo el sistema funciona – ya sea que son ciudadanos o puedan ser ciudadanos algún día. Una de las mejores maneras de familiarizar a los niños con el proceso de votar es compartiéndolo con ellos. Cuando yo era una niña, mis padres me despertaban temprano y me llevaban a las taquillas con ellos antes de irse a trabajar. Mis padres discutían los temas con nosotros mientras marcaban las boletas de muestra. Yo crecí a ser votante en parte porque mis padres fueron votantes. Pero yo también voto porque nuestra Constitución inicialmente no permitía que mujeres, personas de color, personas nativas ni personas sin propiedades votaran y porque ha sido una batalla larga y frustrante (continuando hoy) para ganar el derecho para que todos los ciudadanos voten. Hay muchas cosas por las cuales votar cada año que nos afectan a todos. Por ejemplo: si nuestras escuelas tienen suficientes recursos; si tenemos leyes que promueven viviendas a precios razonables; cuales leyes de salario y labor tendremos; la extremidad a la cual proteger el ambiente, mantener derechos civiles, o crear elecciones justas; qué tan altos serán los impuestos y cuales grupos pagarán lo máximo en impuestos; qué tipo de leyes y pólizas gobernarán la inmigración y refugios; cómo se contará la gente en el censo, etc. Y, en cada ciclo de elecciones, los votantes eligen candidatos quienes comparten sus creencias y pueden convertir estas ideas a leyes. Si los candidatos son para la mesa directiva escolar, concilio de la ciudad, alcaldes, gobernadores, representantes del estado o gobierno federal, jueces, y hasta el Presidente – ellos trabajan para nosotros. Y la manera en la cual los contratamos o los despedimos es presentándonos para votar. ¡Si ustedes creen que unos cuantos votos no importan, piensen de nuevo! Muchas decisiones críticas son tomadas por una pequeña menoría de personas quienes actualmente se registran y se presentan para votar. Este año muchos concursos serán decididos por tan solo algunos cuantos votos. En las elecciones de medio plazo, por ejemplo, normalmente solamente el 40% de los votantes registrados ejercitan su privilegio y entregan su boleta. Y casi una cuarta parte de los ciudadanos quienes son elegibles para votar, no se registran ni votan. ¡Por qué no usamos todos un poco del día libre de estudiantes el Día de Elecciones para crear su conocimiento sobre participación cívica y creamos la siguiente generación de votantes activos e involucrados! ¡Su voto es su voz!

Healthy Serving Ideas- Pears: 

Cut a pear in half and remove the core. Fill the center of each half with all-natural peanut butter or low fat yogurt. Sprinkle with granola and cinnamon for a healthy snack.  Add sliced pears to spinach salads.  Enjoy a whole pear for an afternoon snack.  Talk with your child about fruits and vegetables that are in season. Find a recipe and make it together. For more ideas visit: www.calpear.com. Produce Tips:  Choose pears that look colorful and fresh with no bruises or holes.  Test for ripeness by pressing gently near the stem. If it feels soft, it is ready to eat.  To ripen a pear, place on countertop, in a bowl, or in a paper bag. If placed near apples, pears will ripen more quickly.  Store ripe pears in the refrigerator.  To keep sliced pears from turning brown, dip them into a mixture of one tablespoon 100% apple juice and one cup water.
