Greetings from Dr. Garcia

October 5, 2019

It's hard to believe we are already a week into October! October is a busy month with Teacher Record Day, Fall Break, Parent Teacher Conferences and the District's Showcase of Schools. We hope that you are able to participate in Parent Teacher Conferences and are able to use Fall Break to spend time with your families.

Our learner attribute for October is reflective. Now is a great time to encourage your scholar to reflect on first quarter. What has been learned? What growth has occurred? What are areas for improvement? Being reflective encourages us all to slow down and to think critically about our lives and the world around us.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and we will see your scholars on Monday!
