2 P E the Place to BE Page 2 of 7 It is great to see everyone back from summer vacation healthy and happy. We are excited about our PE program at San Jose. We will begin in September, Being Fit Matters which is Pinellas County s required physical fitness assessment. Students will be measured on their abdominal strength, flexibility, cardio endurance, arm strength, height and weight. A report will be sent home after the pre and post assessments. This comprehensive report will indicate where the student scored on the healthy fitness zone as well as information for improvement. You can find more information on the Pinellas County Schools website as well as on the San Jose website under Physical Education. All Children s Hospital with the Safe Routes to School program will be coming to our school the week of September 21 st. This includes a special emphasis on bike and pedestrian safety. On Wednesday of that week they will hold a bike rally for 3 rd graders during their PE times. Other assemblies and classroom instruction will take place during that week too. October is our Healthy Heart month when we focus on heart facts. We will be having our American Heart Association s Jump Rope for Heart event. The funds that our school raises go to the American Heart Association for research and education. November we may try to participate in the Elk s Hoop Shoot which is a basketball free throw contest for our 3 rd 5 th graders. Our annual San Jose Spring Fling takes place in March and our Water field days are held toward the end of May. Throughout the year we will be participating in Fuel Up To Play 60 activities. More information about that program will be coming soon. We remind parents that students need to wear tennis shoes on their PE days. If your child needs to be excused from activity, please send in a note for that day. If your student will be restricted from activity for an extended period of time please send a note from your doctor. We look forward to a great year with our students in PE class. If you have any questions or concerns please Mr. Mueller at or Mrs. Stevens at or call the school office at GUIDANCE News Laura Bickler, Counselor Welcome back to an exciting year here at San Jose Elementary school! Here at San Jose we pride ourselves on having a positive learning environment and helping students to feel special while they are here. The beginning of school is an adjustment for students, parents and teachers. It is a time when consistent routine is needed in order to have academic success. It is important for everyone to let children know just how important education is. We can all do this by letting students know that school is their very important job and with that comes responsibility. Having students get into a consistent study routine, having good attendance at school and being on time will help your child feel more successful. Helping your child find a quiet study space at home with pencils, paper and any other items needed will also help them stay on a schedule. It is also important for them to have breaks every 20 minutes to help them stay motivated. During the month of September we will be celebrating peace week. The students and teachers will participate in activities which encourage peacefulness among their classmates. This is to help students from all cultures to feel welcome and accepted. I am excited to get this year started and I am available for any counseling related concerns. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at or by

4 Hello San Jose Families!! My name is Bridget Harper. I have been a San Jose parent for nine years and my last little ones moved on to middle school last year. I have always been active here at the school as a volunteer in the classrooms and was sad to think of leaving here. Lucky for me, I didn t have to stay away long I started working in the lunchroom last year as the lunch lady extraordinaire and will now be stepping into a new role as Family and Community Liaison. I am excited to begin my new journey here and I can t wait to begin helping you and your children make San Jose great! San Jose is so incredibly grateful for the generous financial support & in-kind donations from our families, community organizations and business partners. Working together allows us opportunities to give our students the very best of everything. Thanks to you, San Jose is proud to continue its tradition of teaching excellence!

Thank you to Ele Fox and the Kiwanis Club of Dunedin for the ongoing support of our Student of the Month programs!! Mentoring is as simple as Spending time with a student here at San Jose usually done during lunchtime. You could enjoy a little one on one time outside sitting at the picnic tables, eating, talking and laughing. A visit can be once a week, once a month, or whatever works best for you and the student. Having a mentor helps students boost their selfconfidence simply by sharing news they may be excited about or fears they may have. Turn lunch time into Mentor Time Bring your sandwich, share your morning and make a difference! If you are interested in being a mentor, please contact Bridget Harper at Help Wanted! We are always looking for parents, friends, family and community members who want to lend a hand.

6 San Jose Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures San Jose is working hard to keep you and your children safe. We understand that you, as adults are capable of watching for traffic and crossing safely. But how would your child handle the same situation without you? Cars and buses can t see little ones the way they can see us. While you are on school property and surrounding streets, please follow a few safety guidelines that we have put in place. School hours are 8:35am to 2:35pm and all children can have a free breakfast starting at 8:05am. Please know that there are no teachers and staff on duty before this time and we ask that you not drop your child off before 8:05. Students that come to school later than 8:35am must go to the office to receive a pass in order to be allowed into class. If you would like to walk your child onto campus or into breakfast, please park in our upper parking lot that you can enter from San Helen Drive. If you park in this lot, you MUST walk your child across the bus circle and into the patio area. Students are NOT allowed to walk alone in the parent /visitor parking. If you park and walk them across, you can say your good-byes in the picnic garden and know that they are in safe hands here at school. If they need to be walked to class, we have safety patrols and ready to lend a hand. IF you do not want to get out of your car to drop off or pick up, please drive around and use the car circle entrance off of San Jose Drive. The car circle is a quick and easy way to drop off and pick up your child. When picking up in the car circle, you need to display a Student Pick Up card in your car window in order to speed up the process and ensure that your child is entering the correct vehicle. If you do not have this card, they are available in the front office. IMPORTANT Do NOT park and walk your child to class from the car circle!! Safety News Thank you parents for helping keep our children safe by following the rules. We must continue to be mindful of speed limits in and around the school area. Most streets in our neighborhood have a speed limit of 15mph. Please slow down for the safety of our children walking or biking to and from school. If you are driving through a SCHOOL ZONE and the lights are blinking, SLOW DOWN to 15mph. We have crossing guards at several intersections and we ask that you have your child be sure to cross with the cross guards WATER BOTTLES, METAL OF EVERY KIND & PAPER = $$$$ for San Jose San Jose is proud to be a GREEN school! We recycle here at the school in the classrooms and around the campus. We ask that you help us by bringing in your recyclables for us to make a difference. Our plastics, metal and paper are all hauled away by different companies In doing so, not only are we working together to make huge impact in our community and keeping all the recyclable materials out of landfills, but we are generating $$$$$ for San Jose!! Thank you to all for helping us by making the effort to recycle your metals, papers and plastic water bottles here at San Jose.
