This Week's Highlights: Multicultural Festival, District Track Meet, and a BIG THANK YOU

Wow! What an amazing Multicultural Festival we had last week. THANK YOU to everyone who came to see all the wonderful things our students are doing. The art display and the students singing was FANTASTIC! Did you notice the international flags our students created? A big thank you to Mrs. Willmering who worked with our students to prepare the environment for our families!

The Track Meet was such a fun event. THANK YOU to everyone who showed up to cheer on our Coyotes! Awesome job to the athletes and coaches from all 6 schools!

A BIG THANK YOU to our PTO and our School Community for spoiling all of our teachers & staff this week. Because of you, our Staff Members were celebrated and honored. There were community members who donated to the PTO, made door signs, sent flowers, made cards, and sent words of thanks! Due to your generous donations to the PTO this year, the PTO was able to host breakfast, lunch, snacks and coffee, hold a raffle for prizes and give a swag bag to every staff member this week. We are so blessed to work in partnership with you for the success of our learners!

State Testing & iReady Diagnostic Testing this Month

It is helpful if our students come to school with plenty of rest, a good breakfast, and a positive attitude.

  • Encourage your child to simply do his/her best
  • The night before the test – When possible, try to spend a relaxing evening at home. It is important for your child to get a good night’s sleep.
  • Start the day off right – Wake up on time so your child does not feel rushed. Keep the mornings positive and have your child eat a good breakfast.

Here is a digital link to the information.

Since the beginning of the 2022-23 academic year, the partnership between SDCOE and Computers2Kids has provided over 1300 refurbished computers to San Diego families in need. We hope your families are able to benefit from this event.

Parking & Drive-Thru Loop Information

Everyone should TURN RIGHT ONLY out of both loops. No double parking to wait for a student to be picked up.

During morning drop-off drivers need to pull ALL THE WAY FORWARD. This especially impacts families trying to drop off students at the Kindergarten gate. Please do not stop at the Kinder gate if there is room to pull all the way forward. Additionally, please do not park before 3:00pm on the Kinder side as our TK and K parents need room to pull forward.
