    Words of Welcome from New Principal Darlene Martin

    Hi Everyone!  Thanks for your warm welcome. I look forward to working with each of you to ensure your child gets the quality education s/he deserves.  In this first two weeks I have observed all of our classrooms and can attest to the hard work to develop the routines that lead to a successful school year: community circles, independent reading, small group work and student-teacher conferencing.  As we move forward we will support students by teaching skills for academic conversation and using data to understand student strengths and areas of growth.  Of course what makes for a positive school experience for students goes beyond the classroom.   I am pleased to see how eager students are to participate in morning meeting and recite the Peacebuilder pledge.  They have also told me what other things they would like including a basketball team, no bullying and more leadership opportunities.  I will be working to provide these opportunities for them.  Here’s a “high five” to peace and learning, -D

    Palabras de bienvenida de la nueva directora Darlene Martin

    ¡Hola a todos! Gracias por su cálida bienvenida. Espero poder trabajar con cada uno de ustedes para garantizar que sus hijos reciban la educación de calidad que se merecen. Durante estas dos primeras semanas, he observado todos nuestros salones de clases y puedo dar fe del duro trabajo realizado para desarrollar las rutinas que nos conduzcan a un año escolar exitoso: círculos comunitarios, lecturas independientes, grupos de trabajo reducidos y charlas entre estudiantes y maestros. Conforme avancemos, apoyaremos a los estudiantes mediante la enseñanza de habilidades para la comunicación académica, y utilizando datos para comprender las fortalezas y las áreas de crecimiento de los estudiantes. Por supuesto, lo que hace que la escuela sea una experiencia positiva para los estudiantes va más allá del aula. Me complace ver cómo los estudiantes se muestran ansiosos por participar en las reuniones de la mañana y recitar el compromiso por la paz. Ellos también me han hablado sobre qué otras cosas les gustaría, incluyendo un equipo de baloncesto, que no haya acoso y más oportunidades de liderazgo. Voy a estar trabajando para ofrecerles a ellos estas oportunidades. “Choquen esos cinco” por la paz y el aprendizaje. -D
