Moreland Summer Camp June 21-July 30, 2021

Mark your calendars! Camp Moreland is hosting a six week, fun-filled day camp that includes a variety of active, hands-on learning opportunities surrounding engaging and exciting themes. Campers will enjoy activities that vary from week to week and are designed to be age appropriate for all students. Each day our campers will also have designated “brain boost time” where academics will be reviewed. Some of our summer themes include “Artful Antics,” “Full STEAM Ahead,” and “Zoomania”.

Safety is our number one concern at Moreland. Due to COVID-19 and in accordance with the public health department’s recommendations, students will be placed in small groups and will participate in activities only with their assigned group while at camp. Additionally, all staff and students will be required to wear face coverings and follow social distancing protocols throughout the day.

Camp Moreland is open to all Moreland School District students entering grades transitional kindergarten through eighth grade and is a wonderful place for your students to develop long lasting friendships. Summer camp will be held Monday through Friday at Latimer Elementary School located at 4250 Latimer Avenue San Jose, CA. 95130 from 8:00 am-4:00 pm. Online registration will begin on April 26, 2021. To register, go to the Moreland School District website www.moreland.org, then to the “Schools” tab, select “Extended Day/Enrichment Programs” from the drop down menu, and click on “Summer Camp”. For more information, please contact Devon Doneilo at ddoneilo@moreland.org.

State Testing Waived for the 2021 School Year

The U.S. Department of Education approved California’s waiver of accountability, school identification, related reporting requirements for the 2020-21 school year. Therefore, we will not be administering the SBAC or CAST assessments this school year. It is a requirement to assess students, in grades 3-8, using local assessments and provide that information to parents. We will be using and reporting our last round of Study Island benchmark assessment data in ELA and Math. The special education department is working out the assessment details for students who typically take the California Alternative Assessment. Individual scores will be sent home to parents at the end of the school year.

Parent Informational Meeting

Erin’s Law’s law requires schools to implement an age-appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for grades TK-8. Victor Pacini, a survivor of sexual abuse, author and motivational speaker, will be assisting our schools in implementing this mandate. Mr. Pacini’s assembly program, Be Seen and Heard, is developmentally appropriate, interactive, and aligned with learning standards. The assemblies are presented in specific grade level groups to ensure that the message is age appropriate for all students. The focus of the presentation is to teach children basic skills to keep them safe from dangerous or abusive situations. The concepts that will be discussed are:

Distinguishing safe from unsafe touches
Saying “NO”
It’s not the child’s fault if someone touches him or her
Telling a trusted adult
Safety rules at home and school
Safe/unsafe secrets

Students will attend the Zoom assembly in late March. The exact time of the assembly will be shared with you as we get closer to the assembly date. If you choose for your child to not participate in the assembly, there will be an opt out form for you to complete.

To learn more about the content of the assembly, you are invited to attend a parent informational meeting on Thursday, March 10 at 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
