University Elementary at La Fiesta

Principal Lunde's Weekly Update

October 12, 2020

This weekend I trekked to Ventura, California to connect with my parents. During the visit, I took a moment to walk through my elementary school. It was a surreal feeling to experience my 5 year old lens through my 47 year old eyes and as a principal of your children. My heart filled with joy and my shoulders felt the true sense of responsibility for your children to have joyful, mind stimulating memories of their time at University. As I looked up to embrace this role, I read,

"Schools and families working together can rise to meet any challenge."

This is us! We are doing this! My intent is to have transparent communication and all of us putting our heart and intellect into our children. Our teachers, support staff, and families want our UELF children to thrive.

Family MAKER Night on WEDNESDAY!

Join us on on Oct. 14 at 5:00pm to 7pm for the Family Maker Night. We will kick-off the night with a Maker Read Aloud. Families can prepare for this event by collecting recyclable goods, like cardboard, plastic containers and items like masking tape, cardstock, straws, popsicle sticks, and paper cups. During the Maker Night, families will work together to build a bridge and document their thinking. Use the Maker Notebook to collect your ideas during this event.

Looking forward to seeing you and "making" with you! Go Seawolves!
