Principal's Newsletter 3/5/18

Principal’s Message

  • There are 13 more weeks of classes in this school year. The students are growing academically and socially. It is a pleasure to witness their growth, and to hear them articulate their learning in two languages. It’s easiest to see in our SEAL classrooms (grades K-3) when students lead their parents through a tour of the classroom at the end of each unit. Not only can the students provide detailed information about complex concepts, but they can explain it in whichever language their parents speak! ‘Pretty impressive!
  • We have two big events this month: the STEM Fair and the Adelante Auction. I encourage all families to participate in both- they are wonderful opportunities to get together and strengthen our community!

We are planning an exciting evening of hands-on activities of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). This is a fantastic way to get students engaged about these topics, and to engage with the community!  But we need volunteers to make it happen. All levels of participation and background welcomed.
