Promesa Family Update
Dear New and Returning Promesa Families,
We are so excited to welcome your children and you to the Promesa community in August! Year one was such a beautiful experience for our team in so many ways - we met some of the most incredible, funny, kind, and joyful students; we created strong partnerships with our families who have helped us co-build and co-design Promesa along the way; and we created memories that will last us a lifetime.
As we get ready for year two at Promesa, we are spending this summer reflecting on areas in which we wish to grow and improve as we work towards building a better school year after year.
We will continue to send updates your way this summer and will be using this platform (Smore) so that you can easily access past versions of our newsletters. In this newsletter, you can find links to our calendar, uniform policy, and sample schedules, as well as additional contact information for our team. We will be sending out additional information about transportation needs and afterschool care in early July.
We hope that your children and your families are having a wonderful summer and cannot wait to see you all again in just under two months!
With love and gratitude,
Virtual Learning Options in the 2021-22 School Year
Click here for our 2021-22 calendar! Meet the teacher events will be on August 10th and 11th, with all students returning back to school on Monday, August 16th.
We've reviewed all of the survey data and created a uniform policy for next year that we believe aligns with the needs and feedback from our founding families. Note that Fridays will be free dress days next year.
We will be sending out Monday-Friday schedules for each class later in July. All grade levels will have two recesses daily and a variety of specials classes including music, art, PE, library, and Spanish weekly.
If you haven't done so already, join other founding families on our Founding Family Facebook group! You can also connect directly with our Family Advisory Council (FAC) by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
