Assistant Principal's Corner

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Dr. Martin Luther King Day is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of January. It celebrates the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., an influential American civil rights leader. People across the country honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the three day weekend. Dr. King was most well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation on public transport and for racial equality in the United States. Peace, freedom, and equality are all keywords to describe Dr. King's journey for people to be treated equally and he relayed that message in his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

ATTENDANCE

Thank you for supporting our students with engagement and participation. Research has shown that absences negatively impact a student’s education and reduce

opportunities for success in school. As such, the District will monitor online participation on a

daily basis and communicate with you if your child is absent from their online learning sessions.

In addition, we will proactively work with you to identify and resolve any barriers to your child’s

Participation. Please alert your teacher or call the Office if your student is our sick or can’t log for connectivity reason.

Our Dolphins have 3 major responosibilites: engage in learning, complete assignments on time, and stay in touch with teachers.

Parents can help too by:

*Establishing a routine for bed time and for the morning for your child

*Checking on your child’s attendance regularly (ParentVue)

*Encouraging your child to log in to CANVAS account, participate and engage unless he/she is truly sick

*Calling the school and provide notes when your child is absent

*Communicate with your teacher or Office to report any technology problems.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let us be active and take care of ourselves. Here are you few things you can for self-care:


  1. Take a walk, run explore, and relax

  2. Watch a funny movie

  3. Make a list of what are you grateful for.

  4. Help someone and show them that you care

  5. Write a list of things you are grateful for
