Spanish Students Supporting SEED
I teach Spanish at The College Preparatory School, an independent high school in Oakland. Over the years I've been taking my advanced students to elementary schools in Oakland to help in the classrooms or do projects with the kids. My students are very serious and love to help and practice their Spanish with children. I was wondering if your school would be interested in having a group of students to come to a bilingual class a few times during the year and do some activities with your students.
Please let me know if you would like to explore further this possibility.

Recess Pick Up
I am noticing that we tend to have students getting into minor altercations as they are waiting to be picked up by you after recess. In order to minimize these types of minor incidents, please pick up your classroom in a timely manner.
I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
