SAUSD FACE Newsletter
And Community Resources : April 15, 2022
Dear SAUSD Community,
Another Winter season has gone by! Welcome to Spring!
I'll start us off this month with a small reflection that Spring offers a chance for warmer weather, as well as new beginnings. Spring is a great time to harness the energy of the season and allow your mindset to move away from dreary Winter into the fresh energy of Spring. The wonders of Spring offer many opportunities for a fresh perspective and renewed energy.
I want to extend gratitude with this new season to our community, community partners, and staff for the unity and support that makes our city unique and resilient. This Spring season remember to take care of the most important person: Yourself! Allow yourself a space to recalibrate, search for support, and build that support network for youR family and yourself. I invite you to look for a partner in our FACE Team! It is always a pleasure to serve you and our community.
Evelyn Kirpichyan, Claudia Tapia, Yuriko Maldonado Rangel, Elisa Briseno Sandoval & Elizabeth Maciel
