Going to school is important to me because...


I contribute a lot to my class!

Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

Too many absent students can affect the whole classroom, creating commotion and slowing down instruction.


¡Yo contribuyo mucho a mi clase! Contribuyo...

   Las ausencias pueden afectar a todo el salón de clase si la maestra tiene que reducir la velocidad de aprendizaje para ayudar a los niños a ponerse al día.

   Demasiados estudiantes ausentes pueden afectar todo el salón de clases, creando conmoción y reduciendo el aprendizaje e instrucción.

Welcome to Almond Grove Elementary School

almond grove logo.jpgAt Almond Grove Elementary School, learning is a process that extends to everyone in our community, including students, staff and parents. We have a caring school community where all children and adults feel welcome, respected and are an important component of our school. We work hard to ensure that all students reach their potential by maintaining high expectations and setting high standards to promote academic excellence. Implementation of Common Core State Standards is focusing on preparing students for college and career readiness. Our school is designed to foster a positive school climate based on a caring school community that values diversity and nurtures self-esteem.

Dear Families,                                                                                                                  

We are excited to announce that our school will once again be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge where we will join thousands of schools across the country to create a culture of kindness. Your child is part of a powerful and positive bullying prevention initiative that will lead to more kindness, unity and respect at school and beyond.


During the week of January 22-26th, Almond Grove School will be participating in the 2018 Great Kindness Challenge. This is a week dedicated to performing millions of acts of kindness on campuses nationwide. Support Almond Grove School by helping us to create a safe and caring school environment. Talk to your children about being kind and showing respect to others.


Each class will be participating in our door decorating contest where they will display their class message about kindness. Students will also be making a school wide kindness chain, reading books about kindness, and doing kindness activities.  We also challenge each student to complete the Kindness Checklist by doing such things as smiling at others, inviting a new friend to play, decorating hearts and giving them to others, etc. This is a challenge to see how many acts of kindness each child and adult can participate in during the week. Your child’s teacher will be giving your child the Kindness Checklist.


In culmination of spreading kindness, we will be participating in Pennies for Patients. We invite all students to participate by giving extra coins to go towards the Leukemia Society. More information will be coming home when students receive their individual Pennies for Patients boxes. This collection will begin on January 29th and end on February 15th. This is a great opportunity for students to respond to the needs of others and to learn about empathy and compassion.


Thank you in advance for helping us to create a culture of kindness and compassion in our community and beyond.


With gratitude,


Mrs. Edwards


School Safety Reminder 

School safety is our top priority. Please help us ensure our drop off loop moves safely and efficiently by doing the following:

  • Do not park in the drop off loop
  • Pull as far forward as you can when dropping off students

    (Do not stop by the gate)

  • Drive slowly and cautiously through the lot

The loop is now painted red. We are working closely with the Oakley Police Department to improve student safety. If you park in the red zone, an Oakley Police Department Officer may issue you a ticket.


Thank you for your cooperation to ensure student safety at Almond Grove.
