Greetings Parents, Students, and Community members,
The 2016-17 school year is underway. We are excited to engage our staff students, families, and community members in the creation of “world class” learning opportunities for all our students. This year we continue to develop our schools and classes such that they guide students in becoming excellent communicators, collaborators, creative and critical thinkers and doers as well as caring citizens, community members, and learners. This focus on developing 21st century practices is built on a foundation of literacy. Along these lines, we are doubling our efforts to assist all our students to develop literacy levels to meet the very high expectations of California standards. Our continued focus on guiding students to become interested and competent readers is at the core of these literacy efforts.
We look forward to each day of the 2016-17 school year and all the opportunities that will be afforded us to grow and learn as a learning organization.
