Fish Friends and the East Bay Parks and Recreation Visits Ron Nunn

 

The Mobile Fish Tank visited RNS and taught our TK-5th grade students all about various environmental science topics such as: food chains, fresh water fish, conservation and safety of our creeks, delta, and oceans, as well as health and nutrition.  This was an engaging assembly for each grade level.  Thank you to our Fish Friends at EB Parks and Mrs. Volta's class!




 

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.  

 





 

Adonal Foyle visits Ron Nunn School!  
Some Ron Nunn students were given an early Christmas present when Adonal Foyle, former NBA Golden State Warrior basketball star, visited their class.  He came to our school to read his book, Too Tall Foyle to our students.  Mr. Foyle gave each student in Room 15 and 17 a signed copy of his book and encouraged all students to read over the break.  Thank you Adonal Foyle for sharing your journey to being a professional basketball player and author with our students!  



 

School Attendance Is the Key to Success
Your child’s attendance is directly related to their academic success at school. Tardiness to school causes your child to miss instruction and disrupts the rest of the class. It is nearly impossible to replace the key first instruction that a child misses when he/she is absent. Additionally, Brentwood Union School District receives a significant portion of its funding based upon student attendance. The district will only receive funding when children are in school. Students absent from school for any reason will not receive funding. It is critical that your child attend school regularly and be on time for class every day. 

 

Going Somewhere? Site Based Independent Study
If your family is planning to leave for 5-20 days, resulting in your child missing school, your child is eligible for Site-Based Independent Study (SBIS). While there is no substitute for being in the classroom setting, SBIS provides your child the necessary work to keep pace with what their peers are doing in class. It also counts as an excused absence and the school receives funding as if your child was actually in school. Please inform your child’s teacher or notify the office early if you plan to have your child out for a period of 5-20 days. 

 

 

Caroling at Summerset- A Joyful Noise!

 

December 14th was an amazing night of spreading good cheer with our Summerset neighbors.  Our Ron Nunn School led by the KC Club sang carols throughout Summerset.  We ended the evening at the Clubhouse where the Summerset 1 board presented our school with $1500.  What a blessing to be in partnership with our neighbors!! It is always such a positive joyful night for all involved.  Thank you to Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Wirkus for continuing to lead this amazing program.  

 

 



 

Winterfest- Holidays Around the World

A Tremendous Success!

 

Thank you to the Ron Nunn Parent's Club and all volunteers who assisted in making this event a success!  This evening celebrated various cultural traditions from China, Africa, Mexico, United Kingdom, Germany, and India.  We had a fashion show, Santa visits, letters to our Troops and Santa as well as a raffle of baskets and teacher treasures.  This event was a wonderful community building time.  Thank you to those that donated financially and in time to making this a special evening.

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!

Every School Day Counts!  Ron Nunn School Attendance Goal: 97.4%

 

In 2016-17 our attendance rate was 96.6%  That resulted in a loss of $146,414.52 in Ron Nunn School Funding.   It also resulted in a great loss of instruction for many children!  


Did You Know?  
•    Attendance Gaps lead to Achievement Gaps!
•    Good attendance in Pre K & K builds academic & social skills for the future
•    Kids who are chronically absent (miss 18 + days) in Pre K & K have only 18% chance to be proficient readers in 3rd Grade. 
•    Kids who miss 10 days in K and 1st grade have 35% chance to be proficient reader in 3rd grade.   
•    75% of students who are chronically absent (miss 18 + days) in 6th grade will dropout of high school.
•    School Attendance is Habit Forming!
•    When you come to school on time, your day starts smooth, your classroom routine is smooth and your day starts off better.  
•    You can learn more when you are not stressed in the morning.
•    Start good habits at home like waking up with alarm, same routine, eat breakfast,  and your day will go better

Brentwood School District Wellness Guidelines state:
Due to allergy concerns, it is strongly recommended to use only commercially prepared food items (ingredients are listed on packaging).

For everyone's safety, it is a school expectation that any treats for birthday or holiday celebrations for students include only commercially prepared items with ingredients listed on the package. 

Our School recommends alternatives to food for holiday celebrations including learning games or other activities to celebrate students.

Thank you for your cooperation in this effort.  Our goal is to keep all students safe and model healthy food choices.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Wallace.
