Dear Old Adobe Union School District Parents, April 7, 2015
Welcome back from spring break. Since my last letter at winter break Old Adobe Union has continued its efforts to improve every facet of your child’s experience in our schools. This has included daily work in the classrooms, planning for school programming next year, facilities, food, and more. Here are a few of the highlights:
Math Facts Challenge!
I am excited to announce the second Superintendent’s Challenge of the 2014-2015 school year! In the fall we challenged all of our students to read more, and with your support they rose to the challenge. OAUSD students have recorded over 200,000,000 words read in the Accelerated Reader system, meaning that they not only read the books, but also passed a comprehension quiz on the material. Sites followed up the Superintendent’s Challenge with their own site based challenges and independent reading will continue all year. For the second Superintendent’s Challenge we will focus on automaticity with the math facts.
As part of our ongoing effort to support health and well being of our students, staff, and community, the Old Adobe Union School District has pursued a solar energy alternative to meet energy needs across the district. We are thrilled that Sun, Light, and Power and SolEd Benefit Corporation have partnered to submit a proposal that is projected to save Old Adobe Union over $2,000,000 over the next 25 years, with no upfront costs to the district. If fully implemented, a high percentage of the energy used by Old Adobe Union would be covered by these new, on site, solar installations.
