TY to Mrs. Bohren and Mr. Vann for creating our Virtual Talent Show, displayed on the school website.
TY to the so many who contributed a picture/message to our students. They’re displayed at the end of the talent show. Awesome! Check it out! And thanks again. Filled my heart!
TY to the many who have prepared and/or distributed student belongings and report cards. I received many compliments from parents to teachers, staff, our entire school for keeping things going and for providing for families.
Condolences: to Mr. Ken, as his mother passed away on Friday. He may be off for a few days caring for his father and the family.
Staff on Campus:
Michael and Jammie will be on campus from 9am-3pm T, W, Th this week and for the first two weeks of June. Robbie will be on campus by 10:30 M, Fs. Any changes will be communicated.
Distribution this week for K, 3, 4, 6. I just want to be sure that it’s been made clear there are two choices. 1. Admin is more than happy to distribute the materials. Teachers are not required to be on campus. 2. Teachers may participate in the distribution. I will restate this to families in my connect-ed that some teachers will not be able to make it, so they will say remote-goodbyes ( but do that before your distribution day so families are aware ).
Production and delivery are delayed. They will likely not arrive this week. I will be communicating this to families, that pick up will need to be hopefully in June ( maybe July ).
Student software programs
District-wide programs will remain open until July 24. They will shut down for the final week in July to prepare for the new school year. I have a few teachers set up to monitor student use and motivate students to keep it up. – Amplify, iRead, myON, Dreambox. I will check on Reading Counts, Moby Max. Any others?

Good evening Ansel Adams Families,
It’s time we begin the conclusion of this school year and begin considering the next. Here are some key announcements: Please listen carefully. This will also be posted our school website.
1.Students have the opportunity to pick up their belongings and their report card. Drive-thru times are from 10am to 12pm. Turn in any text books you have, but keep your chromebook for summer use. Students’ bags will be prepared on the following dates.
Wed, May 20: 1st and 5th grades
Thurs, May 21: 2nd grade
Tues, May 26: Kinder Promotion
Wed, May 27: 3rd and 4th grades
Thurs, May 28: 6th grade Promotion
If you are unable at this time, we will have open office time on May 29 and June 3. Any material not retrieved will be kept for students when we return to school.
2. If you do attend this drive thru opportunity please adhere to the following procedures for the sake of everyone’s safety.
1. Stay in your vehicle.
2. Provide us with a note card that has your child’s name and teacher’s name on it.
3. Wear a mask
3. Some teachers will not be able to attend the drive-thru. They will be communicating their good bye’s and wrapping up the year with students during distance learning. Some teachers will be able to attend the drive-thru. As difficult as it may be, it is very important for staff and students to keep the social distance. We’ll need to save our hugs for a bit later! Also, Kinder and 6th grade drive thru will include their promotion certificate.
4. I want to wish those who will no longer be with Ansel Adams a fond farewell. 3rd gr teacher, Mrs. Tejeda as she is moving to another school. Congratulations to retiring staff members; Ms. Mary, our school cafeteria manager, Ms. Lori Penney, our secretary, Ms. Hudlin, our school nurse, Mr. Hurley our 6th grade teacher, and Mrs. Pawlowski, our Kindergarten teacher. Warm good byes to our 6th graders as they promote to middle school. And lastly, students who may be attending other schools next year. We wish you all the best.
5. We will continue to monitor the answering machine and will have an open office hour on June 3 and 10 from 10am to 12noon. Please visit our school website for all information; staff email addresses, 7th grade information, Mr. Coughlin’s Monday morning Ansel Adams News videos, and our soon-to-be Talent Show Video!
6. We don’t yet know how and when our next school year will begin. Keep an eye and ear out for Lodi USD messages. I will surely be in touch as well! Stay well, and we look forward to waving to you as you drive –thru in the next couple of weeks.

Today is an important day: April 1 — Census Day — the reference day for the 2020 Census.This day is used to determine who is counted and where in the 2020 Census. Help us spread the message that everyone should be counted where they live and sleep most of the time as of today, April 1, and everyone who usually lives and sleeps in their household should be included in their count. Visit: my2020census.gov for easy access to the Census Questionnaire. It's quick and easy. The questionnaire will only take about 10 minutes to complete.
These days it's more important than ever to ensure that everyone counts, especially our hardest to count populations, to ensure availability and access to critical services. An estimated five percent of kids under the age of 5 were not counted in the 2010 Census, the highest of any age group. For every child missed by the Census, about $2,000 a year in federal program funding is lost, resulting in a loss to important programs and services that support children and families.
So, let’s keep kids talking, reading, singing, drawing and playing, by helping to ensure that ALL KIDS COUNT! Visit allkidscountsjc.com for more information.

April 2, 2020 Lodi USD:
Based on the recommendation from our County Superintendent of Schools and information from the State Superintendent of Schools and Governor, our District will remain closed through the end of the 2019-20 school year.
The health of our students, staff and community are of the utmost importance and it is vital that we ensure we are all doing our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
We know this is upsetting and we share your disappointment that we will not be able to end this school year as planned.
Our community relies on our schools to educate our children. Even though schools are closed, we will continue to provide education through remote learning. Our teachers and staff have done a tremendous job navigating this unprecedented time, and we are committed to continuing to support our students.
As the California Department of Education provides more guidance on this situation, our District will continue to develop remote teaching and learning activities for the rest of the school year.
We know there are still questions from staff and families. We will provide more details as they become available.
We appreciate the continued support and understanding from our families.
Cathy Nichols-Washer, Superintendent
I know that parents have questions regarding how to register your new student(s) who have moved into our area and also those who have students entering Kindergarten for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Since our office is closed, there are two options to register your student(s). Wednesday’s from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm registration packets are available to pick up at the school site on a drive-through basis. In addition you also have the option to register new students remotely on the webpage.
In both cases the required documents are as follows:
Residential Verification (preferably within 30 days)
You will need to either provide a scanned copy or take a picture of each page and email these to me at:
If you need help with completing and submitting the required documents, please leave us a message at the school’s answering machine at 209-953-9601 and we will have someone call you back to assist you.
I miss you all and hope to see you soon!!!!
