Message from the Principal

Dear NACP Students and Families,


Happy Friday! I hope you find a moment to enjoy this long weekend with your family. My weekly message will be brief, because I really want you to dive in and enjoy the content of Today's Newsletter. It is packed with information, you will not want to skip any sections! I will mention though, because it is kind of a BIG deal- Our students, teachers and parents/family members helping our students celebrated the 100th day of the School Year this week! Hip, Hip Hooray to all of our NACP Dolphins Teachers and Care Givers!!!


If you haven't heard this today, you are amazing and you are doing a wonderful job.


Sincerely Yours,

-Dr. Guerrero

HOORAY! NACP DOLPHINS ARE 100 DAYS SMARTER THIS SCHOOL YEAR!

This week NACP Dolphins celebrated the 100th Day of the School Year. This is a huge milestone for all students! Please take a moment to celebrate your student, he is 100 days smarter. Your child has had 100 days of learning: reading, writing, typing, spelling, math concepts, art, socializing virtually, engaging in discussions, Zooming, and so much more! Give your student a big hug, high five, pat on the back or all three, they deserve it.


Parents and Teachers a BIG thank you to you too for making this all possible!!

PARENT CENTER NEWS

Big picture
Yesterday, Alma Marquez and Cindy Borbon from Del Sol Group held a Voice Training Workshop for our Spanish speaking parents who want to lend their testimonials about our wonderful school and the services we offer our students and the community. I really appreciate the time that parents took out of their busy schedule to attend this workshop. Ms. Marquez opened up the workshop by asking parents to think about the DREAMS they have for their children. We all have dreams for our children, I invite you to think about those dreams... Ms. Marquez also briefly shared the history of N.E.W. Academy Canoga Park, its name, the founders, the dream! Which is now a reality!


The next training session will be held February 17th at 2:00pm. This session will be in English. See you there!
