Dear Wildcat Families,
We have so many exciting events coming up! Tomorrow we are hosting the North Lake Tahoe High School Jazz Band for two morning assemblies. Spring make up photos are on Monday morning. Our third grade is hosting a student store as part of their money unit on Wednesday during first recess.
As you know, as per board policy 5111.1, all SBUSD families are required to provide address verification each year. This process will be conducted during a two-week period starting the week of April 28th. You must complete the Annual Verification of Student Address form (to be sent home the week of April 28th) provide copies of the following:
One Document from EACH Column:
Property Tax Statement or Grant Deed
Rental Lease/Contract/Rental Receipt
Please start working on this now so you have the paperwork available during this address verification window. Students who do not provide address verification are at risk of losing their enrollment spot at Washington and will not be placed on a class list for next year until it is complete.
Do you simply love your child’s teacher? Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up May 6th through 10th. One fun thing you can do easily is nominate them for recognition from Scholastic at the following link:
You will need their email (first initial, last name, and sbusdk12.org) and school address: 290 Lighthouse Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93109.
In your Thursday folders, you will receive copies of the district’s tobacco policy. Please review this document.
Congratulations to Wildcat, Amelia Griffin who won the Santa Barbara NewsPress Kids’ Writing Contest. Her “What Summer Means to Me” essay was published on April 10th.
Have a wonderful week!

3rd Grade Student Store Supports Horses!
Open only on April 23
Attention parents and students! Third graders in Ms. Dalton's and Mrs. Yarnell's class are raising money for California Coastal Horse Rescue (CCHR). Students have chosen CCHR as their Service Learning project for this school year. They are hoping you will support this shelter for horses by shopping at their very own "Student Store". This store will be open only one day: Wednesday, April 23, during morning recesses (9:40, 10:00, 10:20 and 10:40) at the picnic tables (in front of the cafeteria). Items to purchase will be healthy snacks, drinks, little toys, books, and doodads. So, bring your change, enjoy a treat, and help out a horse in need. Thank you!
**If you would like to donate baked goods, fruit, or other items to sell, please drop them off at Room 9 by Tuesday, April 22, or earlier. Thank you again for your support!
To learn more please visit: www.calcoastalhorserescue.com or www.facebook.com/californiacoastalhorserescue. CCHR founded in 2000, cares for those horses that no one else will care for. The mission of this Ojai, CA, nonprofit organization is provide sanctuary and rescue abandoned, abused, neglected and slaughter-bound horses, and to pro-vide them with a second chance for a healthy and productive life.
