Principal’s Newsletter November 28

Today Was A Good Day.

Today, I had the pleasure of going down to La Honda to visit the 5th graders.  Parents, I can report that the students are learning so much, and are enjoying themselves immensely.  This year, I went prepared with the right shoes in tow, rain gear, and comfortable clothes.  I had the opportunity to hike with the students, enjoy the garden, and listen to them as they explored and learned about all the wonderful things that nature has to offer us, and the importance of taking care of nature in return.

Upon my return to school, our bake sale to help the fire victims of the Camp Fire was in full swing.  It was reported to me at the end of the day that we raised $280.00 for the cause.  Thanks to our Mrs. Edwards for coordinating, and the students for helping out in making this an amazing way to help out others in need.  

In addition, I have watched as the whole community has stepped up to help families in need during some of their darkest times.  It is hard for any of us to imagine losing everything.  Thank you to Ms. Arai for coordinating this for us, and coordinating with other schools to help out.  Let us all remember these families as we think of how we might give to help out this year.  And, thanks to all of you who are reaching out to help.

Respect the Cones Please

This is just a gentle reminder that if you see cones placed on our parking lots, please be respectful that, unless you’ve been given permission to do so, you should not park there.  The last space in the west parking lot is reserved for two families who won the space at our Spring Auction.  Who knows, if you come to the next Spring Auction, the space could be yours!  Remember, we are all modeling what we expect of our children.  Thank you.
