Special thanks to everybody on campus. This has been a difficult time for many people and it is heartening how much support we have on campus.

- Desiree Le


I want to thank Liz Seelig, Anna Carter, LaToya Morrison, and Danya Gardner for working with 7th-grade writers during flex and STAAR Party! You all are doing a great job of creating lessons that keep kids engaged. I also want to thank 6th Grade ELA for all of the writing they are doing with students. It makes a huge difference to have students arrive with writing tools in their toolbox. Huge thank you also to all of the teachers who have their students reading and writing about their content. You all Rock!

- Sofie Vastano


Kudos to Mrs. Le for always keeping me in a reflective space and pushing my thinking. Love you!

Kudos to Baeza for allowing the 6th grade World Cultures team to conduct a learning walk in his classroom. We loved your classroom environment and it is obvious that your students respect you and value the relationships you build with them.

Kudos to the 6th grade GLT for being so flexible and open minded through the entire Academic Facilitator process. I appreciate your willingness to do whatever it takes to ensure our students are successful!

HUGE shout out to Mrs. TammyFern for convincing Home Depot/Lowes to donate paint and supplies to the school.
