Bob Quinones, Principal A Message from the Principal ...

The Holiday Season is in full swing. This is always a fun and exciting time of year filled with positivity and joy as we approach the Winter Break and the New Year. The season really kicked off last month with Thanksgiving and our annual Turkey Day Kindergarten Programs, which are always a treat for students and families. Thanks for sharing your “little turkeys” with us.

We have a busy month planned with some semester-ending academic projects, benchmark assessments, fun activities, and Winter Break. Please mark your calendar for these upcoming December events:

Our school Spelling Bee will be held on December 12.

PTO will be hosting a Holiday Shop December 18-22.

We will host our Winter Workshop on December 14. We will focus on the whole child with the whole family for this engaging family night of academics and enrichment. We will also have a special guest as Santa is scheduled to join us.

Our annual Holiday Meal is scheduled for December 21. Join the positive spirit and enjoy the great food.

The last week before break is reserved for music. The 1st grade program is on December 18, our 5th grade band will host a concert on December 19, and our 3rd grade program is December 20. In addition, we have our school-wide sing along on December 22.

In accordance with our annual tradition, December 22 will also be Pajama Day.

Don’t forget that Winter Break begins December 23, with December 22 being an Early Release Day. Classes will resume on Monday, January 8, 2018.

If you are considering a school donation, now is a great time to complete your tuition tax credit. This dollar-for-dollar tax credit can be contributed to schools to promote learning activities such as field trips, assemblies, extracurricular programs, and student events.

As we push into the month of December, we will continue exploring our 7 Mindsets. In particular, we will continue our focus on an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE. This mindset teaches us to value what we have, treasure ourselves, be more grateful, thank it forward, and elevate our perspectives. Since these are important conversations that we have at school, we are asking that you support us by talking about these ideas at home too. Life can be challenging, but we can overcome the hurdles together by persevering with grit and determination. A large part of that is recognizing what we have, being positive, and thanking others for our support and the opportunities that we earn or are given. Thank you for being our partners as we focus on supporting the whole child to develop productive members of our community. As they say…” it takes a village…” We want the whole community for the betterment of our community!


Have a safe and wonderful Holiday Season! We are looking forward to a wonderful start to the New Year when classes resume.
