PLAYGROUND SAFETY NOTICE
For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.
I hope that this message finds you relaxed and refreshed and that you are all enjoying your well-deserved Spring Break, As I reflect on this past third quarter . . there were many, many things to celebrate. Our WASC visitation went well . . with our visiting committee validating our TEAMs hard work by matching their areas for growth with our school wide areas for growth. The 20+ months that we spent to prepare for our TEAMs first Accreditation allowed each of us to learn about the operations and systems that are in place . . . the process also allowed us to identify areas for growth that we will focus on and address in our 2018-2019 revised Academic Plan.
Another success to celebrate was our STEM WEEK. This was our 3rd STEM FEST and it was a huge success thanks to each and every one of you . . . working as a TEAM to support and connect classroom content knowledge with real-work, inquiry-based, hands-on, project-based learning. Each grade level did an excellent job at bringing the NGSS and CCSS to life. I enjoyed walking through your grade level presentation and enjoyed my time in your grade level classrooms. STEM WEEK is turning into something unique . . each grade level is really embedding this opportunity to prepare our students for the 21st century and by developing the whole child.
The 4th quarter is quickly upon us. There are grade level assessments (SBA and HSA Science) . . 5th grade KAMP excursion, 5th grade promotion ceremonies, pasta night, our annual Color Run, and many,.many other activities that are planned.
All of you are truly appreciated!
