Mother's Day Celebration: TBD

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming up. Should we do the same as last year and make presentations in the garden. We also gave flowers and hot chocolate with pan dulce. Also classes came to present an or give a card to the moms. Any new ideas?

organization and cleanliness

SCHOOL WIDE

We are working together with Mrs. Sami and the district to take care of our roach problem. Multiple people form the district and extermination people have been on campus to help control the problem. They all have asked that we be very careful not to eat in the classrooms as they believe this is contributing to the problem. I do believe the majority of teachers have students eat snack at recess on the yard so please continue to do that. I will also make sure that after school program is not eating in the classrooms as well.

CLASSROOM

In an effort to declutter the classrooms lets begin to recycle, throw away, or donate unneeded items. I am happy to bring items to the Salvation Army that may not be used by our school but can be used by someone. It will be much easier if we begin to recycle now instead of wait until the end of the year when the bin is filled up. Please let me know if you have any unneeded items I can take to Salvation Army.

The Esperanza Vision and Mission

VISION

Students engage in rigorous, high quality, biliterate academics which prepare them for college and career. Esperanza students and families take responsibility for their learning which allows them to be academically strong in two languages. With a growth mindset, they are unique individuals, who critically think and are determined to succeed. Students show respect for themselves, others and the environment.

MISSION

Through PLC’s teacher are able to plan for mindful and purposeful instruction. Teachers collaborate to implement rigorous instruction, that meets the needs of all students. Teachers engage in peer observations to receive and give constructive feedback. Teachers use data to drive instruction and make clear plans for corrective instruction. We engage the family and community in quarterly meetings to review growth and set goals.
