Weekly Otter Bulletin


Do you have a loved one you want to surprise for their birthday, an anniversary or just to tell them you love and miss them? Consider surprising them with their own Otter-Romp. A nest of cute otters and colorful flowers will decorate their front yard for a day and be sure to put a smile on their face. We are still taking reservations for March and beyond. To reserve an Otter-Romp or to receive more information, please contact us at shoalcreekfoundation@gmail.com


St. Patrick’s Day Candy Bar Bingo

On March 13 we will be having another Bingo event in the school parking lot. We will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day during this event, so everyone is invited to wear green. Participants are being asked to stay with their cars and park in every other parking spot, so we can adhere to physical distancing.

Learning Support Services is excited to share with our community that we are currently going through a pilot process for adopting a new K- 5 History Social Studies curriculum for our elementary schools. PUSD is piloting two State Board approved publishers, Studies Weekly and Teacher Curriculum Institute (TCI).  The pilot team includes 20 individuals from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, school sites and experiences, which includes teachers, a Library Media Technician, principals and parents/guardians.  


 We are also actively aligning our pilot process to PUSD’s  Racial Equity and Inclusion Plan, which can be found on PUSD’s Home Website,  to ensure there is racial, gender, and orientation diversity and a variety of perspectives so that our students see themselves in the curriculum.  We feel it is important to have conversations with community members on the pilot process and provide access to review the two pilot resources.  


Learning Support Services will be hosting two community forums for parents and community members to attend. These will be Zoom sessions that will offer a brief outline of the CA Framework and Standards, overview of the pilot process, provide access to review the materials, and allow for a Q & A session.

The dates are:


Tuesday, March 16  from 5:00-6:00 OR Thursday March 18 from 6:00-7:00. If you would like an invitation to this Zoom session please, RSVP to the session you wish to attend.  If you are unable to attend and wish to review the resources or have a question, please submit your request by clicking this link to share your information and we will email you the steps to gain access to the materials. 


Learning Support Services  looks forward to collaborating with our PUSD Elementary School parent/guardian community.
