2019-2020 Kindergarten Registration

School

Kindergarten registration will be on Tuesday, February 19th from 4-6 pm. Please be sure to do the Pre-enrollment process on the Davis Joint Unified School District website. ALL students must be pre-enrolled before they come to registration.

Enrollment Steps for NEW Students (EFFECTIVE FEB 12, 2019- or possibly sooner if we are ready): Note: If your information day is prior to the launch on the 12th, you will tell parents that they may pre-enroll beginning on the launch date. Remind them they should not use cell phones or ipads! 

1. Complete Pre-Enrollment Online (this replaces the filling out of the registration form that was formerly entered into Q manually by school staff) and print out the completion document.

2. Gather DJUSD Required Registration Documents (these will ALL be listed and spelled out on the district website) and Report to your Neighborhood or Choice School to Be Officially Enrolled. Note: If ANY parent comes to you, and they live outside of Davis or outside your attendance area, you must not officially enroll them. They must wait for an interdistrict approval (to bring to you) or enroll initially at their neighborhood school (until and Intra is approved).

3. Complete Online Re-Enrollment (you will receive instructions and a pin/password by email)

If you have any questions please contact Vanessa Soriano at vysoriano@djusd.net or call the Birch Lane Office at 530-757-5395.

February is Picture Book Month

CastleFebruary is a favorite month at Birch Lane because it is Love A Picture Book Month, where students from all grades celebrate picture books! 
The theme this year is Read Happily Ever After.
Have your children read picture books, fill out their punch cards, and get entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card at the Spring Book Fair. 
As the kids fill out their cards, watch the library transform to a magical place where all can Read Happily Ever After!
T-shirts with this year's theme can be purchased at the library. 
Love a Picture Book Family Night will be Wednesday, March 6, 6:30-8 PM.
Check out the Facebook page "Thank You Birch Lane Elementary" for updates from the library and photos from past years picture book celebrations!
Last year, Birch Lane students read 39,165 books in February! How many will they read this year?

Principal's Message

Welcome back Birch Lane community. We are very excited to begin a new school year and look forward to seeing you Wednesday August 29. The first few weeks of school are busy in and around the campus so please be safe, and when possible use the alternative entry points to the school such as the bike paths or the rear entrance to the school.

We encourage you to connect with your child’s teacher in the first few days of school so we can best serve and support every child.

Our PTA is an integral part of our school community, please join and support our art and garden programs, school safety (crossing guards, recess supervision), field trips, and much more!

Our school takes the safety and well being of all students as a primary focus. Our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) is our framework for celebrations, explicit instruction of behaviors to all students, guidelines for Restorative Practices, and Social Emotional Learning skills. Thanks to our School Board our counselor, Susie Carrell, will be here every day supporting our children.

We look forward to seeing you and have a wonderful beginning to our school year!
