Dear Parents - The 6th grade teachers invite you to join Matsumoto students and staff as we celebrate the promotion of the 6th grade students with a parade through the campus. On June 13th at 10:30am, the 6th graders will parade past their applauding former, teachers, and fellow classmates. Parents are invited to gather on the blacktop near the tetherball courts and stage where the parade will end. Dr. Nguyen will be addressing the 6th graders, staff, and families at the end of the parade in a closing ceremony. We will have sign-out tables for those parents who wish to sign their child out of school early and continue the celebration with their families. We look forward to sharing this tradition and celebrating the students on the last day of school. If you have any questions, please email your child's teacher.

Please follow all neighborhood driving and pedestrian laws. Make sure you walk with your child when crossing the street at the crosswalk. Teach your child good safety habits. For those parents wishing to drop-off and pick-up their child by car, we ask assistance in maintaining a safe parking lot. The traffic through the parking lot will be limited to the following: On Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 1:50-2:00pm, the parking lot is for Kindergarten pick-up traffic only. After 2:00pm, the parking lot is open to Grades 1-6 pick-up traffic. On Thursdays, from 12:20-12:30pm, the parking lot is for Kindergarten pick-up traffic only. After 12:30pm, the parking lot is open to Grades 1-6 pick-up traffic. Please be advised that parking and waiting at the curb will be prohibited as it impedes the flow of traffic.

To promote school safety, Matsumoto had added Pedestrian Walking Flags and Holders. The flags are used at school intersections to help keep children safe as they walk to school. When a student holds a Pedestrian Crosswalk Flag as they use a crosswalk, they are making surrounding cars aware of their presence and giving them the confidence to safely walk to school. Please discuss the proper use of the pedestrian walking flags and holders with your children. Thank you!

May's ABC Book: In "Recess Queen", by Alexis O'Neill, Mean Jean, the "recess queen", rules the playground with an iron fist. No one dares cross her path for fear of being hit, punched, or kicked. One day, a new girl shows up on the playground and catches Mean Jean completely off guard. Katie Sue is not the least bit intimidated by Mean Jean. Katie Sue actually invites Jean to join in a jump rope game! In no time, Jean and Katie Sue become friends. As a caring adult, here are steps you can use to help youth in emotionally charged conflicts: 1) Empower students to use their skills as UPstanders to create a safe and caring climate on the school playground. 2) Practice using conflict resolution skills. 3) Use the ABC student toolbox of techniques practiced all year in our ABC Lessons. 4) Demonstrate a connection between student's online and face to face community.
