Principal's Corner

Falcon Community,


We just ended October, and November is here! November will come and go since we have a week off, Thanksgiving Break from Monday, November 22 to Friday, November 26. December will be Finals review and Finals. Semester One will be coming to the end very soon.


I would like to update you regarding COVID, we had a couple of COVID positive cases this week. I have asked other colleagues around the district, and the number of COVID cases seems to be declining. Nevertheless, Winter is around the corner. Please continue encouraging your students to wear their facemasks, this is truly making a positive difference at our school site.


Regarding academics, we only have six weeks left of school. More than ever we want to emphasize first best instruction, meaning we teach each student in the classroom during class time. However, We will continue to offer Falcon Scholar - after school tutoring Monday to Thursdays from 3:20pm to 5:20pm in the cafeteria. Due to construction, we will only have Saturday Academy some Saturdays. Please click here to read our Saturday flyer.


Regarding Climate and Culture, we just finished our October Spirit week and I was happy to see many students participating. Friday, we invited students to wear their costumes at school; we had a great time! I am proud to inform that our Falcon students not only followed our costume guidelines, but they behaved so good. Thank you!!!


I hope you find our newsletter informative.


Thank you.


Respectfully,


Luis Aparicio

Social Emotional Learning for Students

We continue to nurture, foster, and support our student's social emotional learning on a weekly basis through advisory. See the slides linked below for the latest topic addressed in class and engage your student in a conversation on how they are feeling being back at school and if they understand what it means to be socially aware.
