Design and Flight: Aerospace Experience

Students in 5th grade have been engaged in a series of science, technology, enginereing and mathematic (STEM) lessons connected to the field of Aerospace.  Through hands-on projects that incorporated collaboration with peers and the construction of rockets and  wing design, students were assessed on their creative construction of an efficient rocket, succes of their rocket launch without fail and most importantly their ability to collaborate and work as a team. The end of the unit was complimented with an engaging opportunity to meet A-10 pilot Major Greg Krino.  Major Krino knew he wanted to be a pilot when he was in 2nd grade after watching Star Wars.  With the dream of being the next Luke Skywalker, Major Krino attended the Airforce Academy where he learned about flying. His story inspired our students to pursue their dream through their education, choosing the right friends who will be supportive, be a good person in the community and an athlete which promotes their health and happiness.

7/21/16

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is announcing its policy for providing free and reduced-price meals for children served under the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program.

 

Meal applications will be sent to all households with a letter informing parents or guardians of the availability of free and reduced-price meals. To apply, complete one application for all children in the household and submit to the school for processing. Additional copies are available at the school office or you may apply online at http://nmusd.heartlandapps.com.   Households may submit an application at any time during the school year. Information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school officials.

 

Children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals if their household income is less than or equal to the Income Eligibility Guidelines identified below, which will be used to determine eligibility for meal benefits. These guidelines are effective July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017.

 

NMUSD will notify the household of their children’s eligibility for free meals if any household member receives CalFresh, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs), or Food Distribution Program Indian Reservations (FDPIR) benefits. Households will also be notified of any child’s eligibility for free meals if the individual child is categorized as foster, homeless, migrant, runaway, enrolled in an eligible Head Start, or enrolled in an eligible pre-kindergarten class.

 

 

An Application is not required if a household receives the eligibility notice from school officials. Households should contact the school immediately regarding any child in the household not included on the eligibility notice. The household must notify school officials if they choose to decline meal benefits.

 

Households that did not receive the eligibility notice from school officials and would like to apply for meal benefits must submit a complete free and reduced-price application for Newport-Mesa Unified School District to determine a child’s eligibility.

 

Households receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, or FDPIR benefits must include the following on their meal application:

  1. Names of all enrolled children
  2. One case number from any household member
  3. Signature of an adult household member

 

Households with foster, homeless, migrant, or runaway children must include: 

  1. Names of all enrolled children
  2. Indication of individual child’s categorical eligibility status
  3. Signature of an adult household member

 

Households who may qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on income must include:

  1. Names of all household members (children and adults)
  2. Amount, frequency, and source of current income for each household member
  3. The last 4 digits of the Social Security number (SSN) of the adult household member who signs the application or check the box if the adult does not have a SSN
  4. Signature of an adult household member

 

Foster children are eligible for free meals and may be included as a household member of a foster family if the foster family chooses to also apply for the non-foster children. Including foster children as a household member may help the non-foster children in the household qualify for free or reduced-price meal benefits. If the foster family is not eligible for meal benefits, this does not prevent foster children from receiving free meal benefits.

 

Children in households participating in Women, Infants and Children (WIC) may be eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Contact school officials for further information or complete an application for processing.

 

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the family should contact the school. Such changes may make the household eligible for free or reduced-price meals if the household income falls at or below the levels shown above.

 

For up to 30 operating days into the new school year, eligibility from the previous school year will continue within the same school/agency. When the carry-over period ends, unless the household is notified that their children are directly certified or the household submits an application that is approved, the children must pay full price for school meals and the school will not send a reminder or a notice of expired eligibility.

Ms. Susan Astarita, the district’s senior associate superintendent and chief academic officer, has announced her retirement.

Astarita.jpg

“It has been my privilege to work in the Newport Mesa Unified School District for the last 22 years,” Said Astarita. “I’ve enjoyed the focus on teaching and learning, the collegiality and the team atmosphere. I’ve worked with the finest teachers, principals, District staff, Superintendent and Board of Education,” she added.  

 

Ms. Astarita’s 39-year career in public education began as a teacher in the Santa Ana Unified School District where she worked for 17 years, serving as a principal and District-level administrator before joining Newport Mesa Unified School District in 1994.  Most recently she served as the senior associate superintendent and chief academic officer, overseeing overall elementary and secondary education services for the district, which includes early childhood education, curriculum design and implementation, assessments, education technology, college and career education and special projects.

 

Ms. Astarita is looking forward to having time to explore her family history, participate more actively in the local Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Orange County Society of Mayflower Descendants. She enjoys golf and is looking forward to having time to practice and play on a more regular basis.

 

“I would like to congratulate Susan and wish her the best of luck in her retirement,” said Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro. “She has done an exceptional job at focusing recourses and aligning the Education Services Division to better meet the needs of our students and support to our school sites. I truly value and admire her great work and leadership, and will miss her tremendously,” Navarro added.

 

Ms. Astarita’s last day is June 30, 2016. Within the next few weeks an interim senior associate superintendent and chief academic officer will be assigned. The District anticipates filling the vacancy prior to the start of the 2016/17 school year.
