Quote of the Week

"We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own."
-Cesar Chavez

Chavez Service Day: Wednesday

  • Plans should be finalized for your Wednesday Service Project by Tuesday afternoon.
  • Please plan a mini-lesson on Cesar Chavez and/or your area of service to teach before you begin.
  • Plan out the details of your project. What will students be doing doing the service time? How many volunteers do you need? What materials do you need to complete the project?
  • Please talk to Danielle and/or Suzanne if you have any remaining material needs. If we do not have it on site, please purchase what you need (it is too late to order). I will do my best to reimburse for reasonable costs. It is critical that we are planned out with all the materials we need to make the day run smoothly.
  • Invite parents and other volunteers to help you with your project, to help clean, organize, or restore areas of the school.
  • Plan a closing circle about service and what we learned from the experience.

Recess Line-up Procedure

  • Students should line up 5 minutes early. If the procedure is done correctly, they can return to playing for the remaining 3-4 minutes.

April Calendar

  • Please read the attached monthly Calendar to plan ahead for April events
  • The next SSC meeting is on Friday, April 11, at 8:45 a.m.
  • The Spring Reading Festival has been postponed to Saturday, April 26

Core Value of the Week

  • I show service. I make my community a better place.
  • Demuestro servicio. Hago de mi comunidad un lugar mejor.
