Moving Bodies- Operations & Logistics
From the Superintendent
Date: June 7
Host school: Sequoia
Invited schools: Glenview, Garfield, Fruitvale
One of my priorities with the district is to engage and get connected with our employees. It is very important to me to hear from you regarding those opportunities that are most important to you and for me to be able to communicate my vision for the district. To accomplish this, I will be hosting a voluntary school site Faculty Focus Visit. The meeting is open to teachers & staff from Sequoia, Glenview, Garfield, and Fruitvale.
Below is a draft agenda for the meeting:
4:00-4:05pm Welcome by Host Principals
4:05-4:30pm Superintendent's Pathways to Excellence Plan, Recognition & Shout Outs
I look forward to engaging with you! If you have any questions about the meeting, please reach out to my assistant, Aiyana Mourtos at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thursday, May 12th is Safe Routes to School Day!
Get out your bikes because Safe Routes to School Day is right around the corner! Glenview will have the smoothie bike, coffee, and bagels to enjoy at the beginning of school as students, parents, and teachers bike into work.
Safe Routes to School is a comprehensive, proven approach to getting more kids walking and biking safely to school. It gives kids and parents skills, encouragement, and inspiration through a range of activities, events, and lessons, while also addressing local pedestrian and personal safety concerns.
Please let your students know to bring their bikes on Thursday, May 12th. Fliers will also be handed out to each class to help remind students of this upcoming event! And if you have a bike, please consider riding in yourself -- even if just part of the way. No doubt the students will love seeing their favorite teachers cruising in on a bicycle!
