Off & Pickup Reminders!
As we come back from our vacation, it is also a good time to review a few things about
morning and afternoon car procedures. Please review the following with your children and
anyone who may be involved in their transportation to and from school:
Three cars should let children out at one time. Students should not get out in carline
beyond the orange markers and should never walk unattended through the parking
Drivers should stay in their cars. If a child needs help unloading, please park in the
parking lot so no one is feeling rushed.
Do not drop off students at the corner of Chapel Dr. and Holly Dr. (next to the tree).
Please remember that we do not own the parking lot on the opposite side of Chapel
Dr. so please keep children out of the parking lot, planters, and walls.
Drivers should line up no sooner than 2:35pm.
Drivers should form a double line that merges into one line past the garages.
Pull as far up as possible throughout the carline process.
Students should never be asked to meet their ride at the corner of Chapel Dr. and
Thanks again for your support and help in keeping our traffic moving smoothly and keeping
our children safe. I know that the process can sometimes be slower than we like, but there is
nothing more important or any appointment so pressing that we should ever jeopardize the
safety of our students.
Note: As you have seen by now, our front gate is fully operational.
While it is open during our high traffic times, it is locked the rest of the day and during the Extended Day Program.
You will need to call the EDP phone in order to get in after hours.
In case you lost it, the number for the EDP phone is 805.469.1072.
Be welcome to call a few minutes before you arrive so we can have your children packed up and waiting for you
without even having to get out of your car!
Hola, yo soy la señora Fede
The Spanish program at Saint Mary Magdalen School begins in Kindergarten where students learn many concepts including colors, basic numbers and days of the week, as well as songs, games and traditions like
Navidad, Dia de Reyes and Carnaval.
The program continues through 8th
grade where students work with conversations, translations and conjugations of verbs in the present, past and future tense.
Elementary Grades K-4th has weekly Spanish lessons. The program for 5-8th grade includes two hours per week of Spanish instruction.
I created a set of practical workbooks based on the National Standards for Learning a Second Language.
The goal of our program is to teach the language, the culture and to give our students the ability to develop the necessary tools to be successful in high school Spanish.
