The Lion's Share

September 2019

Message from the Principal:

Happy September!!


August was a busy month of establishing routines, fostering relationships and working out the issues with new schedules/programs.


As a staff, the teachers at Settler's Point used the half day on August 28 to learn about a social and emotional learning curriculum called Sanford Harmony. This curriculum was donated by National University. This PreK-6th grade program prioritizes establishing authentic connections between people by celebrating similarities, appreciating diversity, promoting empathy, and building a solid community. The staff was very excited to receive the training and curriculum materials.


During September we look forward to lower temperatures (fingers crossed). PTSO and Dads' Club are up and running on all cylinders. PTSO will meet on Thursday, September 5 at 3:15 and Dads' Club will be meeting on Tuesday, September 10 at 7:00 at SoCal Tacos. We hope to see you there as these are a great way to get involved and support the school, while meeting new people.
