Quarter 3 Report Cards

Please make sure you have signed and returned your student's quarter 3 report card. Thank you!
If you have any further questions or concerns about how your student is doing, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can email me anytime or call the school and leave a message for me to call you back. 

Our Earth Day Project:
We learned about the three R's (reduce, reuse, and recycle). The students had to write about what they can do to help the earth (picking up trash, planting trees, using both sides of a piece of paper, etc.).  

Field Trip to Tanaka Farms!

Our class is taking a field trip to Tanaka Farms in Irvine on Monday, October 29th! If you haven't returned your field trip form, please send it back with your student as soon as possible. I already have one parent volunteer coming with us on the field trip. All parents are welcome to attend but must transport themselves and pay for their own admission, which would be $7. We plan on arriving at 10am and leaving at 1pm. The students are very excited for this fun learning experience!  

Home Language Survey

Please fill out and return the Home Language Survey as soon as possible! They were sent home with your student on Monday. Please let me know if you would like another copy. The surveys must be turned in by this Friday, September 21st. Thank you! 

Friday Folders

I will be sending a blue folder home with your student every Friday. This folder will contain important announcements about our class and/or the school, work your student has completed throughout the week, and any forms you may need to sign or fill out. Please take any flyers or student work out of the folder and keep those at home. The only papers I need back are the ones that you need to sign or fill out. Students need to bring their Friday Folders back to school every Monday! Thank you! 

 
About Ms. Bowen
 
Education and Experience:
I graduated from Concordia University of Irvine in Spring 2016 with my Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree in Child Development. I moved on to be a student teacher in Kindergarten and 4th grade classrooms, as well as a day-to-day and long term substitute teacher for all elementary grade levels. Throughout my experiences, I witnessed the substantial amount of progress students made socially and academically. This further solidified my passion for working with a young student population because I was so proud of their transformations.
