The state has moved the age date for next years Kinder students and beyond to 5 years old by September 1, of their enrollment year (EC Section 48000[a]). At this time FCUSD has not developed a protocol to address students who turn 5 after this date.

Please make certain you include a proof of residency, (ie. current utility bill or rental contract), packets are incomplete without this information and will not be accepted. Fifth grade students will be receiving a letter of intent to return to Cordova Gardens for 6th grade.

Congratulations to Mario Bacanowa, the Cordova Gardens 2013-2014, Spelling Bee champion. Mario faced stiff competition and was almost bounced from the challenge when he mis-spelled a word, however he received a reprieve when his challengers also missed a word in the same round. Great work by all 43 initial participants and the 22 spellers who made the oral version of the Spelling Bee.
