**Weekly Update** 10/16/20 Vol. 12

October Spirit!!

Hola Jaguar Families!

Welcome back from the long weekend. I hope that your families are well-rested and have remained safe. Please note that next week, our school will be hosting Spirit Week beginning on Monday. We encourage all students to participate to show off their Jaguar Pride! Below you will find a short video of inspiration.

We just recently completed the schoolwide NWEA assessment last week, which measures the academic performance of our students and identifies the growth areas in which they will need support. We enjoyed a schoolwide 90% success rate of submission and a large part of this is due to the parent partnership that we have established. Thank you for supporting us in this endeavor and reminding our students of the significance of acquiring a strong education. Si Se Puede!

Please call our front office if you have any questions or would like to review your student's academic progress. I would be happy to do so!
