6th Grade Students To Visit Correia Middle Jan. 30th

Dear Parents/Guardians of 6th grade students:


On Tuesday, January 30, 2018, the sixth grade students will take a walking field trip to Correia Middle School for a tour.  Students will report to their first period class. After attendance, students will walk with their assigned teacher-chaperone to Correia along a predetermined route.  The San Diego Police Department will escort us to Correia and block off streets so students and staff can safely travel the 1.4 mile walk.  A permission slip was distributed to your child. Your child must turn in this permission slip to his/her first period teacher to be eligible to go on the walking field trip to Correia Middle. Permission slips must be returned by Friday, January 26th.  Students who do not turn in their permission slip will stay at Dana Middle while the sixth grade teachers and students visit Correia.


Parents are encouraged to attend the tour. We would appreciate your support chaperoning our students as they walk to and from the Correia campus. Once at Correia, parents will participate in a parent orientation while students participate in a campus tour.  If you are interested in walking with your child to Correia, please email Joey Lepetri at jlepetri@sandi.net.  


School tours at Correia are offered every Tuesday throughout the month of March .  Because they are student-run, the tours are given during ASB class which is from 10:45 – 11:45 a.m. School tours are open to anyone. Please arrive at 10:40 because the tour begins promptly at 10:45 a.m.


After the visit, Correia counselors will visit Dana and provide information about Correia electives. At that time, they will give your child an elective card to take home.  Please talk with your child about the elective classes offered and help him or her select the top four options.  Many students do not receive their first choice due to scheduling conflicts so it is very important you and your child spend time reading about each elective and the requirements (some electives require a teacher recommendation and application).  Elective cards are turned in to your child’s English teacher by February 14th.


We are excited to offer this opportunity to our students.
