Dear Ararat Charter School Families,

On behalf of ACS, I want to wish all of you a Happy New Year!  We are confident that with your support, our students will continue to thrive. We encourage you to continue to have your children read on a daily basis. Itís important for students to visit the local library in order to promote their reading literacy. Another way to promote your childís literacy is by visiting a local bookstore and purchasing books of his/her interest. In addition, we want to focus on making connections to reading in real life settings. There are various locations such as the grocery store that contain reading text that students can read as they visit. This will in turn help students understand that reading has a purpose and will also help promote their reading fluency.

We would like to invite all of you to our upcoming College and Career Fair which will take place on Friday, January 22, 2016. If you plan to attend, please allow sufficient time for signing in at the main office. You will report to your childís classroom for presentations on various careers.

To increase our home/school communication, we encourage you to take part in the Parent Involvement Committee. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Friday, January 29, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. at our Slymar campus. Come to join with other parents in a collaborative manner to build relationships and to hear ideas and suggestions that will help improve our school. 

We also have an upcoming parent workshop on January 20, 2016 which you can gain important information English Learners and CELDT (California English Language Development Test).
