Leopard Pride News
It's a great day to be a Leopard!
First Graders set their SIGHTS high!
At the beginning of the year, Mr. De Santiago, Mr. Wells, and the first grade teachers challenged each of the first grade students to learn 1,000 sight words. Sight words are critical to reading not only because they are used so frequently, but also because many of them cannot easily be sounded out or illustrated. More than 50 students achieved this goal, and were able to be Principal for a day as their reward.
Nine of these students received a special treat and came to visit Mr. Smith and go to lunch with Mr. De Santiago. We are happy to celebrate these students who know 1,000 sight words in English AND 1,000 sight words in Spanish!
Congratulations to Genesis Reyes Montoya, Genesis Manriquez, Vanessa Morquecho, Itzel martinez, Fernanda Garcia, Maivry Montgomery, Angel Sierra, Alejandro Moreno, and Rafael Saenz!
The entire first grade was challenged to meet 100,000 sight words, which they blew out of the water reaching 140,000 and earning a splash day!

He challenged the students in several ways.
1. Find success through effort.
2. The difference between people who succeed and fail is successful people don't settle for the minimum effort. They learn from their mistakes.
3. Impact others. A quote from one of his mentor states “If you impact one person today, you will influence a hundred tomorrow.”
4. Find something and strive for it. Set a goal.
