Extended Day and Jumpstart Tutoring for qualifying students begins Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2:30-4:00.

Congratulations to Mrs. Nguyen’s class, Room 402, for having 99% attendance the last week of December–way to go! Finney’s overall attendance was 95.3% last week. Be sure to bring your child to school every day on time. Every minute of every day counts!

downloadFinney is honored to partner with the La Jolla Playhouse to bring their Arts Academy program to our students! This grant-funded project places professional teaching artists in schools with classroom teachers to incorporate theatre activities and exercises into existing curriculum.

Finney needs everyone’s help with kindergarten recruitment. Filling up next year’s kindergarten classes early helps ensure that we will have highly qualified teachers for our students at all grade levels. CVESD is offering Kinder Readiness orientations for parents on February 4. Click here for more info.
