Sticking the Landing
And so concludes the final full week of the school year. What a tremendous achievement!
Thank you families, students, and staff for an phenomenal year. This year seemed an impossible challenge, but we did it. Together. It's not over yet, though! We still have two more days next week. Monday, June 13th, is a totally normal day. Tuesday, June 14th, however, is the last day of school and a MINIMUM DAY.
With 5th Grade Promotion taking place at 11AM, students in 1st-4th grade will be picked up in the cul de sac. Promotion parking will be in the parking lot near the park entrance. We understand this may cause some additional congestion in the street, so we please ask that you be patient and follow all traffic safety guides' directions. TK and Kinder pickup will be the same as usual.
Yearbooks distributed Monday. Report cards will be handed to students on Tuesday. Any Yearbooks or report cards not picked up next week will be available in the office until Friday. Monday, August 20th, any remaining report cards will be mailed home. Yearbooks will be available for pickup on campus by appointment only.
Students of the YEAR
This week we honored all of our Students of the Week at an awards ceremony Wednesday morning. Four students from each grade level were selected throughout the year to be recognized for excellence in citizenship, effort, growth, and achievement. We are so proud of all our Falcons and look forward to celebrating even more next year.
Congratulations, Students of the week! Thank you for being phenomenal falcons!
Running Club Champions
Our Falcons don't just soar, they run quite a bit too! This year they logged 3,900 total miles. That's the distance from San Diego to Panama City, Panama, like the Panama Canal- a drive that would take 78 hours. Our top runners were recognized at our Wednesday award ceremony. Our goal for next year, 4,000 miles! Let's GO!
