We are excited to host our 4th Annual Challenge Day this year on Wednesday, February 28th for our 7th and 8th grade students. 

 

Challenge Day is a fantastic day to help students learn to connect and build self-esteem, address peer pressure and reduce the acceptability of teasing, oppression and all forms of violence.

 

Students, if you are interested in participating, please see Mrs. Myrick in the counseling office to sign up.  Sign-ups are on a first come first serve basis.  

 

We are also looking for 25-30 adult participants; a well-rounded group of community members, school staff, and parents. It is an all day commitment (no coming and going) 8:00 am-3:30 pm.  If you are interested in volunteering on Wednesday, February 28th please email me at MyrickS@cabrillo.k12.ca.us

 

There is more information below regarding Challenge Day and a video attached. 

 

________________________________________________________________________________

 

For millions of young people, bullying, cliques, alienation and even violence have become deeply ingrained in their daily school experience. Challenge Day provides a way for teens to lift themselves and their schools out of this quagmire, and to create a new environment that reflects the change that they want to see in their school.

Challenge Day is a series of games, activities, group discussions, icebreakers and trust-building exercises that lead to transformation. The walls of separation that divide people from one another are broken down, and the participants leave the experience with new levels of respect and communication with their peers, teachers, parents, community and themselves. The program successfully addresses the issues of violence, racism, teasing, stereotypes, tobacco, drugs and alcohol within the context of teen life.

Challenge Day also helps young people learn to connect through powerful, life-changing programs in their schools and communities.Challenge Day programs increase self-esteem, help shift dangerous peer pressure to positive peer support, and reduce the acceptability of teasing, oppression, and all forms of violence. This program inspires youth and communities to Be the Change they wish to see in the world, and challenge others to do the same.

Join us on Wednesday, October 4th

International Walk to School Day

 

International Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, October 4th this year.  It has become part of a larger movement to encourage students all over the world to safely walk, bike, skateboard, or scooter to school as often as possible.

 

Cabrillo Unified students may participate in Walk to School Day on a voluntary basis.  Talk with your parents about the best way to safely participate.

 

If you don’t have a safe route to walk or roll to school, or the distance is too far, consider carpooling or taking public transportation as an alternative to riding in a single-family vehicle.

 

Why Should You Participate?

  • Walking or “rolling” is fun and it increases your independence.
  • Walking or “rolling” helps you get the physical activity you need.
  • Fewer cars on the road helps reduce air pollution and traffic congestion.
 

Acompáñanos este 4 de Octubre al

Día Internacional de Ir Caminado a la Escuela

 

El día Internacional de ir Caminando a la Escuela es este 4 de octubre.  Este día ha llegado a formar parte de un gran movimiento para animar a los estudiantes de todo el mundo a caminar, montar bicicleta, patineta, o patinete lo más frecuente posible.

 

Los estudiantes del Distrito Cabrillo podrán participar de manera voluntaria en el Día para Ir Caminando a la Escuela. Habla con tus padres sobre la manera más segura para participar.

 

Si no existe una ruta segura para caminar o montar a la escuela, o es una distancia larga, considera compartir el automóvil con otra familia o tomar el transporte público como una alternativa para ir a la escuela.

 

¿Por qué deberías participar?

  • Caminar o “montar” es divertido y desarrolla tu independencia.
  • Caminar o “montar” ayuda a que obtengas la actividad física que necesitas.
  • Menos automóviles reducen la contaminación y la congestión vial.

Be Safe & Respectful When Riding SamTrans or District Buses 

 

In an effort to provide safe routes to school for all students, we would like to remind Half Moon Bay High School and Cunha Intermediate students to be respectful when waiting for and riding SamTrans or District buses.  CUSD students are expected to treat all passengers and bus drivers with courtesy and respect. Loud, vulgar or intimidating language or actions will not be tolerated. Everyone has the right to a safe journey to and from school.

 

For your safety and the safety of others, please do the following:

  • When waiting for the bus, stand in a safe area and stay clear of the bus until the door is opened, then board the bus in an orderly manner.
  • Find a seat as quickly as possible, and stay seated while the bus is moving.
  • Be respectful!  Do not annoy, abuse, disturb or attempt to intimidate other passengers.
  • Don’t be loud or use vulgar language, and don’t engage in horseplay or bother any other person inside or outside the bus.
  • For your safety, don’t extend any body parts outside the windows (e.g., head or hands).
  • Keep the aisles and exits clear for safety purposes.
  • When you know your stop is coming up, get your things together.
  • Wait for the bus to stop before getting up to exit, walk to the front, and use the handrail when exiting.

Please remember, by doing your part, your bus driver can stay more focused on getting you to your destination safely.

Dear Parents and HMB Community:

 

Recently at Cunha, and other schools around the country, there has been a lot of discussion surrounding dress code.  In order to fully understand the community and desires of the students we have developed a plan to capture some information.  Cunha students will be participating in a survey that is designed to understand their needs, concerns and wishes as it pertains to the dress code.  After the survey is completed, we will publish the results and make a plan based on student input. We look forward to hearing from our student body on this matter. 

 

Regards,

 

Mr. Feldman  and Mrs. Kuznik

 

Estimados padres y comunidad de HMB:

Recientemente en Cunha, y en otras escuelas alrededor del país, ha habido mucha discusión alrededor del código de vestimenta. Para entender completamente la comunidad y los deseos de los estudiantes hemos desarrollado un plan para capturar alguna información. Los estudiantes de Cunha participarán en una encuesta diseñada para entender sus necesidades, inquietudes y deseos en cuanto al código de vestimenta. Una vez finalizada la encuesta, publicaremos los resultados y elaboraremos un plan basado en las aportaciones de los estudiantes. Esperamos tener noticias de nuestro cuerpo estudiantil sobre este asunto.

Hello parents welcome back to another great year of school.

 

We wanted to remind you that safety is a top priority here at Cunha  and  ask you to be mindful of all of the students in and around the campus.

 

In particular please remember to stop at the stop sign at Kelly and Church and wait for students who are in the crosswalk.

 

Additionally please do not drop off children in the middle of Kelly Street as it is dangerous for them because cars would be swerving to avoid your child and could run into them in the street.

 

Please use the driveway at the far end of campus and remember to pull all the way through to the end of the driveway.

 

Safety is our top priority and we want to make sure that all of the students are safe going to and coming home from school.  This means that bikers and scooter riders should be wearing helmets and being safe so they must follow the traffic laws.

 

One other area we're going to ask for your help;  when picking up your child do not get out of your car and enter the campus. All adults on campus must register at the front office, receive a visitation tag and be properly registered.

 

Finally you may have heard that we've been talking to your children about the three rules for life we've also given them the three-part test for behavior and safety. Make sure to talk to your child and ask them if they can tell you the 3 rules for success and the three-part Cunha Behavior test. If you need to--see the  website for the answers.

 

Welcome back to school please remember to be safe and we will see you around.

*****************************************************************************

Hola padres bienvenidos de nuevo a otro gran año de escuela.

 

Queríamos recordarles que la seguridad es una prioridad aquí en Cunha y les pide que estén atentos a todos los estudiantes en y alrededor del campus.

 

En particular, por favor recuerde parar en la señal de stop en las calles Kelly y Church y esperar a que los estudiantes que están en el paso de peatones.

 

Además, por favor, no deje a los niños en el centro de Kelly Street, ya que es peligroso para ellos porque los coches se desviaría para evitar a su hijo y podría llegar a lastimarlos.

 

Por favor, utilice el camino de entrada al final del campus y recuerde tirar todo el camino hasta el final de la calzada.

 

La seguridad es nuestra máxima prioridad y queremos asegurarnos de que todos los estudiantes estén seguros y vayan a casa de la escuela. Esto significa que los biciclistas y los de patin deben usar cascos y estar seguros y deben seguir las leyes de tránsito.

 

Otra área que vamos a pedir su ayuda; Cuando recoja a su hijo no salga de su coche y entre en el campus. Todos los adultos en el campus deben registrarse en la oficina principal, recibir una etiqueta de visita y estar debidamente registrados.

 

Por último, puede haber escuchado que hemos estado hablando con sus hijos acerca de las tres reglas para la vida que también les hemos dado la prueba de tres partes para el comportamiento y la seguridad. Asegúrese de hablar con su hijo y pregúnteles si pueden decirle las 3 reglas para el éxito y la prueba de comportamiento de Cunha en tres partes. Si usted necesita- vea el nuestro sitio web para las respuestas.

 

Bienvenido a la escuela por favor recuerde estar seguro y le veremos alrededor.

Dear Cunha Families,

 

I am writing with some important news to share with you, the valued members of our wonderful coastside community. It is with mixed emotions that I inform you of my resignation as the principal at Cunha Intermediate School. I am so very honored and grateful to have worked with excellent staff members, smiling and engaged students, committed parents, and involved community members - together we have created an outstanding school and I am extremely proud of our collaborative work over the past three years. Please know that I will continue in my role through the end of June, 2017.

 

The staff at Cunha Intermediate School is an outstanding group of people. I am proud to have worked alongside a dedicated group, focused on making our school a positive and safe place for  our students’ academic, social, and emotional growth. This collaboration has resulted in a focus on the whole student, setting a high standard for students to achieve expectations of being Respectful, Responsible, Positive, and Safe members of our learning community.

 

I absolutely cherish every moment I have spent creating memories with our students, inside and outside the classroom walls. I will truly miss them. I will miss starting my day with smiling faces eager to see what the day holds in store for them. I will miss stopping into classrooms and seeing them engaged in new experiences. I will miss the Staff vs. Student games, Leadership spirit competitions and the Super Bowl, legendary Cunha dances, student clubs, Special Olympics, and seeing our students compete in athletics. I will miss the opportunities to connect with them when their lives are difficult...and nobody knows. I will most certainly miss our stories, our handshakes, our high-fives; I will miss each of these special moments, and so many more, all of which genuinely bring daily joy to my life.

 

Finally, I want to express gratitude to each and every one of you for your support, for entrusting me with your children during a most trying time of their lives. You exemplify the importance of a strong parent community, dedicated to the development and success of all children. I will leave Cunha knowing we have built a strong bond and partnership, ultimately having a positive impact in your child’s life. Cunha Intermediate School is, and will forever be, a very special place - I will miss you all.

 

With warm regards,

 

Jarrett Dooley

Queridas familias de Cunha,

 

Les escribo con una noticia importante para compartir con ustedes, la comunidad que valoramos tanto. Les informo con emociones mixtas que renuncio a mi puesto de Director de la Escuela Intermedia de Cunha. Ha sido un honor y estoy muy agradecido de haber trabajado con un equipo de maestros y personal excelente, estudiantes sonrientes y comprometidos, padres con mucha dedicación, y miembros de la comunidad involucrados en nuestro trabajo - juntos hemos creado una escuela excepcional y estoy muy orgulloso de nuestro trabajo colaborativo sobre los últimos tres años.  Por favor sepa que voy a continuar en mi papel hasta finales de junio de 2017.


 

El personal de la Escuela Intermedia de Cunha es un excelente grupo de personas. Estoy orgulloso de haber trabajado junto a un grupo dedicado, enfocado en hacer de nuestra escuela un lugar positivo y seguro para el crecimiento académico, social y emocional de nuestros estudiantes. Esta colaboración ha resultado en un enfoque en todo el estudiante, estableciendo un alto estándar para que los estudiantes alcancen las expectativas de ser miembros  respetuosos, responsables, positivos y seguros de nuestra comunidad de aprendizaje.

 

Absolutamente atesoro cada momento que he pasado creando recuerdos con nuestros estudiantes, dentro y fuera de las paredes del aula. Realmente los extrañaré. Voy a extrañar comenzar mi día con caras sonrientes ansiosos por ver lo que el día tiene en reserva para ellos. Echaré de menos pararme en las aulas y verlos entablando en nuevas experiencias.  Extrañaré los juegos del personal contra los estudiantes, las competiciones de espíritu de Liderazgo y el Super Bowl, los bailes legendarios de Cunha, los clubs de estudiantes y equipos atléticos.  Extrañaré las oportunidades de conectarme con ellos cuando sus vidas son difíciles… y nadie lo sabe.  Ciertamente extranare nuestras historias, nuestros apretones de mano, nuestros high-fives; extrañare cada uno de estos momentos especiales, y muchos más, todos de los cuales genuinamente traen alegría diaria a mi vida.

 

Por último, quiero expresar mi gratitud a todos y cada uno de ustedes por su apoyo, por confiarme con sus hijos durante el tiempo más difícil de sus vidas. Usted ejemplifica la importancia de una comunidad de padres fuertes, dedicada al desarrollo y éxito de todos los niños. Dejaré este año escolar sabiendo que hemos construido un fuerte vínculo y asociación, que en última instancia tiene un impacto positivo en la vida de su hijo.  La escuela Intermedia de cunha es, y siempre sera un lugar muy especial- los extranaré a todos.

 

Con un cordial saludo,

 

Jarrett Dooley

In August, SamTrans altered the 17 Bus schedule to drop off and pick up students directly at the end of the Lewis Foster Drive sidewalk, rather than having them cross Main during commute times. To do this the bus route has been altered to drive northbound on Main Street, during school hours. This special bus is being called route 18, although it is otherwise the same as 17 from Montara to Moonridge. The updated schedule, which goes into effect on Tuesday, September 6th, is attached.

 The purpose of this survey is to obtain parent perceptions of school climate as they relate to student well-being, opportunities, and learning. The survey is a companion to the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), a comprehensive student health risk and resilience assessment tool (grades 5, 7, 9 & 11) and the California School Climate Survey (CSCS) for staff. All parents should be given the opportunity to participate, regardless of which grades are being surveyed among students.
   · Participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information provided will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, improve student achievement, and reduce health risks that stand as barriers to learning.
   · This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that participating parents/guardians cannot be identified from the data.
   · All questions apply to this school only.
   · The results are for the use of your district. CDE/CHKS will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district. 

Below please find information on accessing the survey for each of your schools.
Your online surveys are active from September 21, 2015 to August 05, 2016 
Schools may access and take surveys anytime during that period.

Parents & Community Members:

 

Hatch Elementary School has invited five university graduates from Spanish speaking countries to work at Hatch and Cunha through Amity Institute’s Intern Exchange Program. The Amity Interns gain teaching experience while sharing their native language and culture with Hatch and Cunha students and the HMB community. Check attached for Amity Bios!

The Amity Interns need housing and meals while they complete their internship here so we are currently seeking Host Families. A Host Family provides a room and meals for five months; and in exchange, the Amity Intern brings another language and culture into the home and the family increases Spanish comprehension and gains a richer perspective on another part of the world.  Many host families and interns develop lifelong relationships continuing to stay in touch and visit one another for years as presented in this video.

 

Host Families:

  • Live on the coast
  • Provide meals and a private bedroom (shared bathroom ok)
  • Host either first (Aug 2016-Jan 2017) or second semester (Jan-Jun 2017)
  • Do not need to speak Spanish
  • Do not need to have children at Hatch or Cunha
  • Do not need to have children living at home

 

If you or anyone you know would like information about hosting an Amity Intern, please contact Stephanie Izzarelli at buzzame@gmail.com for more information. Thank you!

Parents & Students,

 

Cunha’s 2016 CAASPP/SBAC standardized testing schedule has been finalized. All tests will be administered during students’ 1st Period classes (either 1A or 1B) for the entire week of May 9-13. See below for the schedule, or click here.

 

Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 12.37.11 PM.png
 

General Information and Reminders include:

  • There will be no 0 Period during testing week; we understand this results in lost instructional time, but it is best practice to begin school with testing sessions

  • Have your students rested and prepared with a well-balanced breakfast each day of testing

  • Mark your calendars; student attendance during testing week is extremely important

  • Want to check out the test? Take a Practice Test!

  • For more information, check out the SBAC/CAASPP website

Some testing highlights include:

  • Computer Adaptive: Students receive test questions that provide unique information about what they know and can do. A correct answer is followed by a more difficult question, and an incorrect answer is followed by an easier question. This provides a more precise estimate of student understanding.

  • Realistic Context for Tasks: Knowledge is assessed in context—for example, students are asked to select a word of the same meaning to replace a word in a paragraph, rather than to choose a synonym for a word standing alone. In addition, students will need to provide open-ended answers for some questions, rather than selecting from multiple options, and will be asked to write short essays that will need to be scored by hand.

  • No Time Limits: Students can take the time they need to do their best.

If you have questions about the assessments, feel free to contact your student's Counselor. Thank you in advance for supporting your students and Cunha Intermediate School during our testing administration of 2016!
