Superintendent's Newsletter

August/September 2022

The new school year is off to a smooth and wonderful start! We are excited to work in partnership with you to Engage, Educate, and Empower your child to be compassionate leaders and problem solvers in our school community and beyond! Together we can live our mission as a school community by ensuring our children are loved, seen and heard each and every day. Send them off to school with a hug and affirmation. With your help, be it words of encouragement to focus and try their best in school, to ensuring your students are practicing skills and reading at home everyday for 20-30 minutes, we can accelerate their learning growth to master the standards they are expected to achieve. By engaging and educating our students they will be empowered to be the creative and collaborative problem solvers and critical thinkers we need to make our school community an inclusive and kind learning and growing space for all.


Please join our community wide challenge this year to have all parents commit to volunteering/participating in 15-20 hours of school events. This includes attending school meetings such as Cafecitos, Parent Academic Nights, Conferences, and Special School Events.

We are excited to invite parent volunteers back to campus! One of the key indicators of a school's success is parent participation! Stay tuned for more information on how to take the pledge to volunteer/participate in 15-20 hours this school year (that's only 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours a month!) in school related activities that will support your child's academic and social emotional growth!


In partnership-

Mrs. Mourtos, Superintendent
