Common Core Standards


The state of California has changed how public schools are funded.  The Local Control Funding Formula (LFCC) aims to streamline the funding process.  To ensure strong accountability each school district in the state of California will write a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  An essential part of the LCAP is parent and community feedback and input.

Please check out the following links for additional information:

Dismissal 3:00 PM


Parents must pick up children by 3:00 PM.   Please help keep our children safe by picking them up from school on time.  Children are not allowed to wait on the playground, up near the school sign, or anywhere near the street. Children must wait inside the parking area in front of the school office.  We know the drive through line is long but, parking on the streets near the school and walking onto campus to meet your child is much faster. This also saves gas and allows us to get some exercise.

Cornerstone Cornerstone

We are excited to introduce Year 3 of the Project Cornerstone Asset Building Champion (ABC) program at our school.  Below is a description of what this wonderful program is all about!

Who: Our entire community of students, parents, and teachers are benefiting from this program.

What: This parent volunteer reading program aims to build the developmental assets—positive relationships, opportunities, values, and skills - that provide a foundation for a healthy, successful future for ALL our youth.

When and Where: Each month a new book will be read by a parent volunteer to your student’s classroom.  A lesson focusing on the above mentioned important building blocks of healthy youth development will be introduced.  Ways in which you can incorporate the lesson at home will be described in this newsletter.

Why: The more assets youth have, the more likely they are to succeed socially and academically.  To learn more about the developmental assets and Project Cornerstone, visit

How: We need an army of caring adults to make this program successful.  Please contact your school’s ABC leaders for more information about how you can be one of these caring adults.

When you “catch” kids modeling positive behaviors…Notice, Name it, and Celebrate it!

ABC Book of the Month

This Month’s ABC book: Friends to the End for Kids: The True Value of Friendship by Bradley Trevor Greive uses engaging photos of animals to illustrate how to make friends, keep friends, and the importance of friends.

Goals of lesson:

  • To help all students learn how to respect each other and to develop stronger interpersonal skills.
  • To have students explore ways to be UPstanders both online and in our face-to-face world.

To reinforce this lesson at home:

  • Share some stories about your own friendships.
  • Here are some questions you can discuss with your child:
    • What do you like most about your friends?
    • How do they bring out the best in you?
    • How do you bring out the best in them?
    • How do you show your friends that you care about them?
    • How do your friends handle conflict when it arises?

When you “catch” kids modeling positive behaviors…Notice, Name it, and Celebrate it!

News from Ms. Robin


The Thanksgiving break is perfect opportunity to take your children in  
for routine physical exams, dental visits, vision check –ups or  
immunization boosters. Healthy children learn better!  Call to make an  
appointment now so you can use the time off from school to take your  
child in for these vital appointments.    Don't forget to have fun  
with your child - take a walk  - ride a bike - throw a ball around -  
play a game.  Take a few moments each day to let your child know they  
are special.


News from Ms. Robin

All medications (including over the counter) given in school must have both a doctor’s prescription and parent’s written permission in order for the school personnel to dispense medications.  Medication release forms, are to be filled out by the parent or guardian, and can be picked up in the office.  All medications must be brought to the office.

News from Ms. Robin

Got Tdap?

Parents of 6th graders - you will need to provide documentation that your child had a Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot given on or after 7 years old.  Our goal is to have ALL 6th grade students provide this documentation before the end of May.  If you haven’t done so already, check your child’s immunization record or call your physician to find out when they last had a Tdap vaccination. Once the shot is completed, bring in the immunization record to your child’s school they attend NOW so we can document that the requirement has been completed. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SUMMER TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT.

New Registration

Welcome To Norwood Creek.

The office is open from 8 AM to 12 PM for new registration.

Please bring the following items:

-Birth Certificate or Passport

-Shot record

-3 pieces of address verification, for example: Drivers license and 2 other pieces

If you are enrolling from outside of Santa Clara County your child will also need a TB test.

Parent Portal

Please take some time to review your emergency contacts and phone numbers on parent portal over break.  When we have the most up to day information we are better able to communicate with our families.  Thank you for your ongoing support with this.
