Avocado is Moving #GatorForward

The Gator Nation is off to a positive start of the 2015-2016 school year. The staff is focused and determined to give our students the best possible education here at Avocado Elementary School. We are committed to successfully implementing a school wide blended learning environment, expanding our growth mindset, and implementing our new writing program, all while in our unique open-space setting. Our staff members have set clear expectations for our students’ growth, and we are excited to track the progress we make from now to the Spring trimester.

Thank you to Dr. Miyashiro and Board President Slagle for making time in your busy schedules to come see the start of what will prove to be a year of amazing growth for the Gator Nation. Watch out, the Gators are on the move! #gatorforward

Have a terrific year, Cajon Valley Union School District!

Fuerte Falcons Soar in 2015

The Falcons started the 2015-16 by having the staff continue developing strong team relationships. We worked together to envision what the Fuerte of tomorrow may look like so that we can strive to actualize it today. We set our course for this school year by continuing to strengthen our understanding of common core state standards, deepening our writing skills by using the Lucy Calkins writing program school wide, and continue to implement blended learning strategies into our daily routine. We also look forward to introducing our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to robotics this year. The Fuerte of tomorrow is taking shape and we are excited to see our Falcons soar!
