Principal Lunde's Weekly Update

October 5, 2020

“ When I was a boy and would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” -Mister Rogers

The UELF Team seeks to be the "helpers" in your world and we are thankful to all of you for the praise, the feedback, and the trust of intent. Together we will persevere through this time period and all of us are stronger right now because of it. Did you know that I smile every day because of your children? Last Monday one kindergartener showed me how to lead his class in their morning song, last Tuesday one 1st grader led a group counting 100 jumping jacks, and last Friday one 5th grader let me know it's okay when I was a minute late to Jump & Jive. We are building relationships one connection at a time.

This week I get to see your children engaged in small groups to target language instruction, one class will be reading published writing and another class will be presenting their projects about their cultures. Your children are actively learning and building our community one lesson at a time. It's AMAZING!
