Principal's Message

Hello Field Families,

Thank you to everyone who came to our Moon Festival! There was so much happiness felt throughout the event and I truly appreciate all of the volunteers who put their time into making the festival such a success. Well done!

On Tuesday, September 29, we will have a special visit from Dr. Mimi Met, an independent consultant who works with language programs and teacher development. She worked with our staff and parents last year and we are very happy to have her return to Pasadena. During this visit, she will only work with the staff, but we will try to schedule a parent workshop with her in the future.

We are also excited about our visit from our Chinese sister school, Huangchenggen Elementary School, on October 6. The visiting students and teachers will participate in various classroom activities with our students. We hope this will be beneficial cultural exchange for all.

I have to end this message with a sad note. This Wednesday will be the last day at Field for our dear Office Manager, Ms. Vickie. She will start at a new elementary school on Thursday. She has been at Field for 11 years. During this time, she has assisted in the transitions of the school and has always been willing to support our kids. We are very sad to see her go.

We will be without an Office Manager for a few weeks, but I have requested temporary support. I would ask all the parents to help out during this transition by making sure all students come to school on time and are picked up on time. Also, please communicate any special daily messages with your child's teacher.

Thank you for your support,
Ria Apodaca
