Gratitude: WEEK 3

Happy Sunday Buccaneers!


Can you believe we have 23 days before the end of this semester!


First and foremost, we would like to congratulate our students who reached Captain, First Mate, and Quartermaster status on the last progress report. We are so very proud of you!!!!


We, the SOM staff, are here to root for each and every one of our Buccaneer Scholars to finish strong! Students, please make sure you are showing up to class, being actively present, engaging in discussion, turning in assignments, and checking your grades to ensure you are not staying behind. The administration, our counselors, and our resource teachers will be meeting with all of our students to conduct our second PEP (personal education plans) meetings. We will be meeting through our PE classes on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. We cannot wait to see you!!!


We had a very successful Second Parent Progress Report Meeting last Friday. We had over 67 parents participate. Thank you for your participation and your suggestions. I also want to thank Ms. Duran, Mr. Olivera, Dr. Barker, Ms. Parreñas, Mr. Garnica-Mendoza, and Ms. Santana for joining us and sharing their stories and advise. We are a community and need to work together to help our Buccaneer Scholars attain academic and social-emotional success.


Finally, these next couple of weeks will be very busy. We continue with our Performance Tasks and will be getting ready for our End of Course assessments.


May we have an amazing week!
