DYNAMIC COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Dear Haight Community,
I wanted to make you aware of an incident that occurred this morning in front of our school at approximately 8:20am.  First, let me say that fortunately no one was injured and everyone is safe.  A car apparently jumped the curb, crossed the sidewalk and landed on the wood chips and bushes, stopping on the left front portion of our building.  The police, fire department and district staff all responded immediately.  The incident was observed by some students, parents and members of our community and we are providing additional counseling support today for students and staff as needed.   

We appreciate the fast, professional response from staff and first responders and are very grateful that everyone is safe. 

Sincerely,
Tracey Lewis
Principal

Applications Available for Haight Renaming Committee

Community members with a link to Haight Elementary School are encouraged to apply for the school's renaming committee. The committee is being convened in the wake of the discovery that Henry H. Haight, after whom the school was named, made racist comments when he was the governor of California. You can learn more here.  Applications to be on the Renaming Haight Committee can be found here.



The whole month of February, Haight is participating in The Great Kindness Challenge, a proactive and positive kindness initiative that improves school climate and increases students’ awareness of the importance of kindness. The Great Kindness Challenge is devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible on campus. Using the provided checklist of 50 kind acts, students accept the challenge and show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS!  Students will be provided a school edition checklist and they can work independently, in small groups or as a whole class to complete all 50 challenges.  Kindergarten and 1st graders have a simpler TK-1st grade checklist to complete.  We will also be sending home a family edition for you to try at home!  We will kick off the challenge at the February 7th Morning Meeting!  Looking forward to all the positivity peace and kindness!

Parent Information and Help - What is Eureka Math and how can I help my child?

Haight Families!  Do you have questions about our new math program, Eureka?  Want to know more about how to support your child with math the "Eureka Way"??

Alameda Unified is using a new math curriculum called "Eureka Math".  It teaches students K-5 how to understand math at a deeper level and teaches them alternate ways to solve problems. It  looks very different than the way most of us learned math.  

 

There are resources to help families understand Eureka math and learn how to help their child.  

Please click on this link to find examples of Eureka homework for grades K-5 for parents.

Please click on this link to see videos of each Eureka lesson for grades K-5.

Toolbox Learning at School and at Home


Haight teachers and staff have been trained in a social emotional curriculum called Toolbox.  All of our students are learning about the 12 tools that can be used throughout the day and out in the world.  Ask your child about the tools - they can teach you the breathing tool!  

More information can be found here: Toolbox Parent Handout  

In addition Heart-Mind Mindfulness teachers visited all Haight classrooms for a 16-session mindfulness program that taught them how to pay attention, improve concentration, resolve conflicts, and develop empathy.  A perfect companion to our Toolbox Curriculum.
