Day of the Child (Dia de los Ninos) April 28
Día, is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. Día is also known as El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day). Día happens year-round, since sharing good books with children should take place every day. On April 30, libraries, community partners and families have extra special celebrations to mark the Día year.

Measure B Dollars at Work at Ron Nunn School!
Over break, our parking lot entrance along Central Blvd. was expanded, allowing two cars to legally enter the parking lot at Ron Nunn School. The right lane is strictly for pick up/drop off in the rolling loop and the second right turn lane is for entering our parking lot to park your vehicle. The exit remains the same, with exit at the west end of the parking lot. Thank you to the district for prioritizing Measure B funding, BUSD Maintenance and Operations, and Swisher Construction for this improvement in the flow of traffic at Ron Nunn School. Thank you to the teachers and parents of our Ron Nunn FAcilities committee who advocated for this improvement to help with traffic, loop flow and safety.

Leave your Mark on Ron Nunn
If you missed out on buying a commemorative brick last year, you are in luck! Our Mary's Garden Brick Fundraiser has been extended to August 31st. Bricks are 4" x 8" and cost $85.
Buddy Bench- A Friendly Idea
Ron Nunn School's Bella and Sophia thought that they would like a Buddy Bench at Ron Nunn School. They said the Buddy Bench will allow for students that did not have friends or those that wanted to make new friends to have a way of doing so. The way it works is if you want to make a new friend or are feeling lonely, sit on the buddy bench. All students, especially those on Buddy Patrol, will come and ask you to play or talk with that student. It is a way for Ron Nunn Eagles to continue to spread kindness even on the playground. It has been a great success in the first month of inception. Way to show Cooperation, Participation, and Respect Eagles!
25th Anniversary Student Celebration a Great Success!
On Friday, May 13th we celebrated with our students 25 years of Educational Excellence. There were student performances, Eagle Jog A Thon hosted by the Parent's Club, Hot Dog lunch donated by our Brentwood Rotary Club, as well as various activities and stations including a DJ donated by Keith Fox. Students had a blast. We appreciate all of the volunteers that made this event a success!
Every School Day Counts! Ron Nunn School Attendance Goal: 97.4%
