From Principal Montes
The parent–teacher conferences in November were a huge success! This is a partnership and together we make the difference in the lives of your children. Not only did we have a successful conference period, we have been fortunate to have Kaiser Permanente Anti-Bullying workshops in our 3rd -5th grade classrooms. The PEACE SIGNS workshop arms students with strategies to solve conflicts peacefully. It also inspires students and their loved ones to respect others and seek help when needed. Artist/Educators use role-play to explore these steps with students in bully situations. After completing the workshop, students learn the PEACE Signs Stoplight Solution conflict resolution model, empathy, respect, and how to identify feelings and the importance of seeing help form trusted adults.
The month of December brings with it the wonder of the holiday season. As we start to experience more winter-like weather, excitement grows. This is a month that is filled with learning and anticipation. We hope that you are all able to participate in our Holiday Craft Night on December 13th starting at 6 pm. Come enjoy the student entertainment and the delicious food provided by our families.
On behalf of the Almaden faculty and staff, we wish all of our students and families a happy holiday season. We hope that 2014 brings continued good health and much happiness to everyone.

Reading Day (below): This is the first of several School-wide Reading Days this year! Every student from Kindergarten through 5th grade read to a buddy from another class and was able to share a favorite book. We love reading!
Thank You Dads!
What a day we had on Tuesday, September 10th when 50+ Dads brought their child to school. It was great to see everyone smiling and having fun! Dads were making bookmarks with their children in order to promote literacy all while enjoy donuts and warm coffee
Thanks to Ms. Shelley Alberti and PTA for their brilliant idea and help with Dads and Doughnuts! Also, much gratitude to Starbucks for providing the delicious coffee!!
