October 2014

1)    October 4, 2014, a group of 30 employees and community members joined us in our Walk, Knock, and Talk. We talked to voters in our community about the override and the programs it supports. Visit our override page for more information.

2)    Union is excited to announce the implementation of our ParentVue portal. Union families will now have access to their student’s grades, attendance, and grade book status through the district parent academic information link located on the district office website. October Top HappeningsParents will be getting their username and password from your student’s teacher at parent-teacher conferences. 

3)    The West Valley View visited the Dos Rios campus on Tuesday to do a feature on the 21st Century grant that was awarded to Dos Rios this year. The 21st Century grant is a $500,000 grant to promote after school activities and tutoring for students.

New Carpet for Kindergarten

Mrs. Stephanie Sisson, kindergarten teacher at Dos Rios Elementary, was awarded a beautiful classroom carpet from DonorsChoose. Mrs. Sisson wrote an essay that described how useful an area carpet is in a kindergarten classroom. Her request was approved and posted on their website. Friends, family, anonymous donors, and several foundations including the Bill & Gloria Gates Foundation made financial contributions to purchase the new classroom carpet. Mrs. Sisson and her students are in the process of writing thank you notes to each donor that made this wonderful opportunity possible!
