SBAC testing has begun and your children, along with the teachers, have  worked very hard to prepare for these tests. To ensure the student's are ready, we need parents to...
             • Please ensure that your child attends school every day
             • Please do not schedule any appointments prior to noon
             • Ensure your child gets a good night’s rest, at least 8 ½ hours/night
             • Make sure your child has a healthy breakfast before coming to school.  
 
 
 Toyon Elementary School - Proud to be a Leader In Me School
With a school population of approximately 350 students, Toyon is the smallest school in the Berryessa Union School District. Because of our size, we are able to create an intimate community of learners where everyone is accountable to the success of all children.
 
In the last few years, Toyon has seen a resurgence in student achievement and success. The API for the 2012-2013 school year was 824 and it is has increased almost 100 points in five years. There are some great things happening at Toyon and the shift towards a focus on mathematics and techology has been important in this success. Toyon's computer to student ratio will soon be 2 to 1, the lowest of any school in the district. We have 2 full computer labs on campus and a mobile laptop cart of MacBooks. In addition, is the first school in the district to begin implementation of an iPad program. By the end of the 2011-2012 year, we purchased 80 iPads which are used daily in our classrooms. Technology is a tool that can enhance great teaching and Toyon is excited to be on the forefront of this movement.
 
We believe that all students are capable of succeeding in school. From early on, our students understand what it will take to be successful when they learn the school motto: Take care of yourself, take care of others, and take care of our school. The Toyon staff is dedicated to taking care of our kids and we are excited about what the future will hold for all Toyon Tigers!

IN THE NEWS:

Toyon moves towards a focus on S.T.E.M education

Toyon Elementary School recently held its annual Science Night in which the school had a live video-conference with NASA. Students and parents learned about the new Mars rover named Curiosity and were able to ask a NASA scientist questions about space and science. 
In addition to other science workshops and activities throughout the campus, the San Jose Astronomical Association lined up telescopes on campus to view planets, stars, and galaxies. This event is a part of a new vision for Toyon Elementary School in its move towards a focus on S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education.

Toyon already has 2 full computer labs, a mobile  laptop cart, 3 mobile iPad carts, 3 mobile Chrome Book carts and we have partnerships with NASA and other science and math organizations. We are fortunate to have a partnership with a retired Lockheed engineer. We have also partnered with the Silicon Valley Wildlife Center. With a computer to student ratio of 1:1, Toyon is the first school in Berryessa to implement an iPad and AppleTV educational program.

Balance Feels Best
I take care of my body by eating right, exercising. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help other.`
