Principal Garcia's Summer Update

August 3, 2023

Torey J. Sabatini School

Dear Families:

I hope the first month of summer was filled with making memories and family fun time! I have enjoyed the slower speed of July which allowed me to spend time with my family and friends, vacation in Sardinia, Italy, read lots of books, and I am beginning to learn to crochet.

It is hard to believe that in just another month we will be opening our doors for the students to return. We have been busy at TJS planning and preparing for the new school year. I have been meeting often with central office administration, district administrators, as well as with interim Superintendent, Dr. Johanna Ruberto, to ensure a positive start to the new school year.

Please review this mid-summer update and you can expect to receive additional information from me about the 2023-2024 school year on Thursday, August 24, 2023.

Enjoy the remainder of August!


Ms. Ileana Garcia

Torey J. Sabatini Principal
