Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,


We want to thank all of you that attended our Veterans Day Celebration at our school this past week. Our first graders did an amazing job singing and we thank our wonderful music teacher, Mr. Vargas for preparing our students for the program. This Friday, November 19 we are hosting our Grandparents Luncheon for all our families who RSVP’s for the event. Please remember to bring exact change ($5.00) to pay for the lunch. Our cafeteria staff will not have change and we appreciate you being prepared with the amount of money you will need for our guests on this day.


In closing we want to thank you for your continued support in making sure that your child is wearing a facemask to school each day. We want to keep everyone at our school safe and we need to work together to make this happen. Also, we ask that you to take the time to speak to your child about the importance of keeping their hands to themselves at all times. This is something that we have been working on and will continue to work on for the purpose of ensuring student safety and respect for each other’s personal space.


We wish you and your family a Blessed Thanksgiving Holiday. If you are traveling, please be safe and remember to enjoy our time with loved ones. Our last day of school before Thanksgiving Break is Friday, November 19 and we will resume classes on Monday, November 29.


Respectfully,


Cynthia Gomez

Principal
