Eagle students as they jog or walk in the Fun Run.
Students will run or walk laps around a
make-shift track on the school's field.
How do we raise money?

obtains pledges and donations in support
of his/her Fun Run efforts. Sponsors may sign up to

$25. Sponsors can make pledges on-line or by using
the attached pledge form.

Day of the Child (Dia de los Ninos) April 28


Day of the Child Flyer


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.

Every child is special, through Día, Ron Nunn School's ELAC has a vision to...
* Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories and libraries.


* Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child's home language and culture.


* Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.



We are asking for students to share about their culture or unique personal qualities on April 28. Students can dress in their cultural attire, write or share stories or poems about their family traditions or favorite things that represent who they are. We will have students share at the CPR Assemblies that day. Students can also bring a book to participate in the Book Exchange at Snack Recess!

FAQ's - English

FAQ's - Spanish

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. 


Thank You for your Generosity! 


We were able to donate over 1,950 items to the Brentwood Regional Community Chest! 


Mrs. Blanch's class donated 373 items and 20 toys to this program.  They earned donuts with Mrs. Wallace!  We also had breakfast with the top donors from each class on Friday.  Thank you again for your support!







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.  


Ron Nunn Students Celebrate with the Highest Attendance Rate in BUSD for the 4th Month in a Row!


Mrs. Wallace dressed up as Santa's helper and distributed candy canes to every student on Friday as a recognition of their dedication to coming to school every day on time.  Ron Nunn School recently earned the highest attendance rate in the district again for the fourth month.  Thank you to the families for making school attendance a priority.  This is also a wonderful testament to the welcoming culture of learning created by our staff and families at Ron Nunn School.  Mrs. Wallace is very proud of our Ron Nunn Eagles!

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%

Our current school attendance goal is 97.4%.  We are striving for consistent attendance every day!  
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.
