Rosalba Martinez, Principal
I hope that this letter finds you well! It is the start of
the 2nd Six Weeks and we have held two different events. Our first
event was a “Grandparents’ Day Open House”. We welcomed nearly 300 Abuelitos
and families to the classrooms so that they could spend quality time with their
grandchildren. It was delightful to see grandparents engage in activities such
as finger-painting, drawing, reading and studying science lessons.
Another equally successful event was our “Doughnuts with
Dads”. Dads were thanked for participating and for playing a significant role
in their child’s education. Each classroom teacher gave out 3 invitations for
parents and we will do something similar for the upcoming “Muffins with Moms”
tentatively scheduled for November.
In other news, I have included the dates for athletic events
this month. You are invited to see our unicorns in action as they participate
in Volleyball and Flag Football. Great job coaches, students and parents.
Parents, have you been frustrated with the traffic around
the school at dismissal time? Yes, I have received a few concerns from parents
about the length of time to pick up their children and about vehicles parking
in wrong areas. Since we dismiss approximately 800 students within 10 minutes
of each other, I ask that you be patient and courteous with everyone around you
and make it safe for everyone!
Thank you for all your support.
