Sierra Hills School
NOVEMBER 10, 2014
Please remember there is no school on November 10th and 11th to honor
our Veterans
Principal’s Message:
Dear Sierra Hills Families,
Thank you for coming to our book fair and family night. It shows so much support for your
children and their school. I personally enjoyed the cookies, coloring, great selection of books,
and time with our parents and students. Thank you to all of our parent volunteers!
This is the last week of the first trimester. Parent conferences are occurring over these next few
weeks and I want to remind all parents and guardians about the importance of these conferences.
The information the teachers provide at the conferences is valuable so please be sure to attend at
your designated time. Feel free to come with a few questions written down, but remember that
teachers have to stick to their conference schedule in order to meet with everyone. As always,
thanks for your support and assistance.
Parents please remember as the mornings get darker and chillier it is still vital that students be at
their classroom doors by 8:13. We start instruction right away and students who are even a few
minutes late miss important information and the efforts to catch them up can result in disjointed
learning for all students. Play yards and the library are open by 7:45 in the morning with
supervision. We’ll see you all bright, early, and ready for a great day of school!

BUS PASS UPDATING TIME:
If you purchased a bus pass for only the first trimester, the pass needs to be updated for
the second trimester. This means if your child’s bus pass has a “1” sticker, this pass
must be updated in order to be valid for the second trimester. Starting Monday,
November 3rd bus drivers will be collecting all bus passes that have a #1 sticker on
them, indicating 1st trimester. Once they have received payment for the 2nd trimester,
(and or 2nd and 3rd trimester), the appropriate sticker will be attached to the bus pass
and the bus pass will be returned to the student. Payment is due no later than Friday,
November 14th. If payment is not received by Wednesday, November 19th your
child will not be able to ride the bus. Please feel free to contact Business
Services with any questions, at 530-878-2606.
PICK UP BUTTER BRAIDS WEDNESDAY (11/12) AFTER SCHOOL!
TK & Kindergarten only – Wednesday & Thursday, November 19 & 20 are minimum
days (11:15 dismissal) for TK and Kindergarten only for parent conferences. There
will be no afternoon bus transportation.
Due to low donations the can drive will continue through November
21st. Mrs. Moe will be out at the kiss n drop collecting cans in the
morning on Friday, November 14th and Friday, November 21st.
Community Food Drive
Our annual food drive runs through November 14. Please keep those cans coming in
as all the food collected helps families in our own community. The Meadow Vista
Friendly Neighbors will distribute the donations in December.
Any packaged or boxed foods that you are able to contribute
to the food drive will be appreciated. We do use the support
of KCRA’s “Kids Can” food drive boxes and advertisements,
but we emphasize that all of the food we collect stays in our
community. Thank you for any contributions you are able to
make. See flyer attached for a list of acceptable donations.

Hi from the yearbook committee!
Due to circumstances last Tuesday we were not able to get any photos of sports
day for our Spirit Week page in the yearbook. If you took any pictures of your
child (or even better, your child and their friends) and wouldn't mind sharing
them to possibly be in the yearbook, we would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks! Jen Garcia ([email protected])
You may have noticed that we have new Visitor badges at SHS thanks to the PTC!
The security of our campus and safety of your student is one of our top priorities.
If you accidentally forget to return a badge, please return it to the office or send
it with your student to return.
