Generosity: WEEK 3

Happy Sunday Buccaneers!


We have made it to the last week of our Fall Semester. Finals will be administered, a survey will be given, students will get opportunities to work on our second STEAM challenge, grades will be turned in, and other amazing virtual activities have been planned. This will be a busy week for our staff and for our students.


These are not easy times; however, having a Team of students, parents, and staff that is willing to work collaboratively is a true gift. I am honored to work with all of you.


We will be having parent meetings this Thursday: we will host a seventh grade parent meeting at 4:00 pm and an eighth grade parent meeting at 5:00 pm. You can find the link to both our our meetings below. The administrative team will be providing updates regarding our district's plan for second semester and disseminating information about summer school, grading policy updates, and listening to feedback from our community members. We hope you will be able to join us.


May this week be fabulous: full of learning, discovery, rigor, and joy.


Mrs. Julissa Gracias
