The Week at a Glance


There is not much to update this week, so I will add a lot from last week. I am very proud of our students who participated in the Unified Sports program this week. I shed a couple of tears of joy and great pride. It reminds me what education is all about -- the kids! Here are some things to remember:

Let's do this Eastlake Middle School. It's officially a sprint to end. Finish strong.

Our Students!

Math Field Day

Our students did a great job competing against all types of math wizards. I was impressed with their knowledge and sportsmanship. SOM were gracious hosts! Thanks Mr. Ulle for coaching them up. Did you know that 8 out of every 5 students do not know fractions that well? But our kids do! Congratulations to the following:

Nike Woehl - 2nd place Mad Hatter 7

Unified Sports

Our students mixed it up in a nice game of soccer. I was so moved by our students and they worked together for a common goal. Our team takes on BVM this week. Please root them on!

Cyber Security Team

Way to go team! Our team finished in second place and brought home a nice prize. Thanks Steve Doyle for helping out!

Padres and the Weather!

A number of our students had a great opportunity to learn about the weather along with the padres. I am no meteorologist, but I think the forecast for Padres Baseball looks like cloudy with a chance of no pitching and no hitting. It's still early though!

Your Legacy

Step Into Your Purpose

This weekend I had a chance to see Michael Jr. If you remember, I presented this piece at the beginning of the year. I wanted to share it with you again as we start thinking about our new mission and goals for next year. Shine on!
