BASKETBALL COACH NEEDED!
SRTMS is in need of a boys’ basketball coach for our middle school basketball team. The team competes in the Camarillo Independent Sports League (CISL). The time commitment would be three to four hours a week, depending on practice and game schedules. If you are interested, please let Mr. Borchard know ASAP. We would like to have tryouts right after winter break, and there are a number of pieces of paperwork that must be completed before the season starts.
MONTHLY SCHOOL TOUR
SRTMS is conducting general school tours for students and families considering attending SRTMS. The tour will showcase the school and what families need to do to become part of SRTMS. Tours will run approximately 45 minutes. Appointments are required and no drop-ins will be allowed. Please click here for the schedule of school tours and contact information to schedule your tour. SRTMS Tours occur on the third Tuesday of each month.
We are always trying to improve communication. We are surveying parents regarding the most effective forms of communication. The survey will be up until 12/21. Please click here to take the survey - we want to hear from you. Our goal is to be strategic and targeted with our communication, so you are aware of the happenings of the school without being overwhelmed.
In 1975-76, the Principal/6th grade teacher, Mr. Fred Cecil, started what has since become a tradition at Santa Rosa School. He and his class made “Stained Glass Windows” and put them up in the Auditorium. The lights were left on at night so parents and valley residents could enjoy them. In 1979, Mr. Joe D’Andrea and his 6th graders added to the windows. In 1984, Mrs. Bev Hays and her class of 8th graders also made some new ones. Over the years they had become rather shabby and we were afraid they might not stand up to another year of usage, so Mrs. Lupe Franco, who was an instructional aide for many years, refurbished and laminated them. Mr. Hatland, principal in 1997, in keeping with the tradition, decided to expand the windows to the office and many students made new windows.
Mr. Fred Cecil, originator of the windows, his wife, and three of their children were killed in a car crash in August of 1979. Our Auditorium bears his name as a memorial. In part to pay tribute to him, the school placed the windows in the Auditorium each holiday season. We are pleased that we are able to carry on this tradition since many people who live in Santa Rosa Valley and the many that pass by the school on their way to and from work, have called or come in to express to us their pleasure in seeing the lighted windows. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
QUARTERLY FINANCIAL REPORT
Have you ever asked: Where does the money we donate to the school go? If so, the new Quarterly Financial Report will help to answer that question. It provides you detailed information about the revenues and expenditures of the Donation account. The goal of the report is to inform parents, so they understand that all donated funds are used for the betterment of all students.
Volunteers are key to the success of students at SRTMS! Your support as a volunteer benefits our school community in a myriad of ways, and it also sends a message to children that you place a high value on the process of education. We thank you in advance for sharing your time, energy and talents. Please click here for the Volunteer Handbook that includes all the requirements and paperwork needed to become a volunteer. This year, we are requiring parents to sign an acknowledgment that they have read and understood all the volunteer requirements.
PEANUT/TREE NUT FREE CLASSROOMS
In an effort to be accessible to parents and community members who have an interest in knowing more about the schools in Pleasant Valley School District, we are pleased to announce that all schools will be offering monthly tours. Visitors will meet the Principal and see the campus in action. They will also be given information regarding Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, registration and any highlights for that particular school. Tour dates have been arranged so that there is only one school running a tour at that given time. Tours will run approximately 45 minutes.
