Intra-District Transfers – The SMUSD’s Student Services department and DPS have spent the last three weeks working on intra-district transfers. There has been an increased complexity to the puzzle with over 600 transfer requests and DPS opening at 3 different sites. Over the next two weeks, Student Services will be processing transfers (approvals and denials) and mailing them home. Thank you for you patience.
GATE and Honors Classes – DPS will have both GATE and honors classes. Students may be assessed for GATE in third grade, with the program starting in fourth grade (district-wide standard). For sixth grade, the amount of honors classes depends on the amount of students who qualify.
PTO Meeting – The next PTO meeting is scheduled for May 7th at 5:30 p.m. at the SMUSD District Office. All PTO meetings are open to the public. Hope to see you there.
K-6 Opening – DPS will officially open as a K-6 for the 2015-2016 school year and transition to a K-8 over the next two years.
As of last Monday, all of the walls are vertical. You can now start to see the design of the campus. The large open space to the west will be the play fields and one of the parking lots.

Just when you thought the Country Fair couldn’t get any better.. SEES is back with even bigger and better food, games, and attractions!
This year they have over 30 games, hand led pony rides, petting zoo, dozens of arts & crafts, and rides to satisfy the most daring of daredevils. You can take a spin inside one of the giant Land Zorb balls (human hamster balls) for an experience you won’t soon forget! Leave room in your day to have a bite to eat… with over 10 food vendors to choose from: it may take a while to decide. Hit the main stage for local San Marcos artists to perform and grade level performances. Rock the campus and come sing a solo, or with your kiddos at the Karaoke stage. Have a caricature drawn or stop by the photo booth to have something to remember the day by…it will be one for the memory books.
The Country Fair is open to the public and admission is free. Tickets can be purchased to buy food and participate in the attractions. This is a SEES PTO sponsored event.
There is still time to sponsor a booth, game or ride. All you have to do is donate and “Put your name on it!! ” You don’t have to work the booth and/or game. Gather your friends , families, and businesses. They are excited to feature the Community Members that help them help the kids and teachers. Some of the most popular sponsorships are still available:
All proceeds from the Country Fair go to Music, Art, Science, Technology and Teacher Aides.
Pay it Forward…Volunteer!
The Country Fair draws over 5,000 people from San Elijo Hills and surrounding areas, and the school needs your help. Please help them by signing up for a shift or two the day of the fair. With one week until the big event they are still in need of 187 volunteers for shifts. Most of the volunteers needed is for the games.
