Dear Parents and Students,

We can’t wait for all of your children to come back to school!   Mrs. Harris and I LOVE making a difference in students’ lives, and for this reason we are so blessed to be able to work with such committed teachers and staff who LOVE this school and the children that come here every day. We are excited to get this year started, we have been planning and preparing all summer long. We have some new things planned for your children that we know will help them achieve academically!

YOU Matter. Your child matters to us as much as they matter to you! It is as simple as that.  Just like you spend time really listening to their dreams, supporting them in their struggles and celebrating their successes, we too want to get to know your child the same way. They MATTER to us! Just like you let your child fail and learn from those failures, we will do the same. We do this because we have HIGH EXPECTATIONS for your child; we believe they can do it if they put their minds to it. We also understand that YOU as a parent also matter. We know we can work as a team to ensure your child has a successful school year. When you read with your child, help them with their homework, talk to them about how to resolve a problem, TEACH them about their culture or family history and LOVE them they know they MATTER to you!

This is the message we want to instill in our students at school. As SME teachers, we believe that they are INCREDIBLE! We hope that our students feel in their hearts that we have faith in their dreams, that we believe they can do anything, no matter what, and that we will provide them with many different opportunities to be creative, to learn, to work, to fail and most of all to SUCCEED! Our goal is to make sure that we continue to help children grow into mountains and not feel like a grain of sand, every single day of school. I will reiterate again, and continue to do so, how lucky I am to work with such talented teachers who support this belief in children and who are as passionate as I am in the belief that our students are wonderful and can achieve!

As we look forward to what is ahead this year, Mrs. Harris and I are motivated by what is to come.  The teachers have been working hard to creating meaningful lessons and activities for your students to do this year. We hope your children come to school this year full of wonderful questions and lots of curiosity about their worlds.

Also, I wanted to share that we were awarded our Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Grant again this year! What this means is that we will provide all children a fresh fruit or vegetable three days a week at school. We hope that this will give them more opportunities to eat healthy and be exposed to nutritious food at school.

We hope that you have been keeping your eyes open for those Back-To-School sales for uniforms. We will have the same uniform for next year (navy blue or white polo shirts, khaki shorts, pants or skirts, blue jeans), so make sure to stock up those nice new shirts that are on sale for $5.00 right now! ALL students like to feel special and have a fresh start to the year with new clothes!

On Friday, August 17th class lists will be posted outside in the front at 3:00pm. You will be able to find out your teacher’s name, go inside to locate the classroom and then walk outside to find the dot you will line up at on Monday morning. PTO will be outside selling school spirit shirts and other school items. School will be open from 3:30- 5:00 PM for this event.


With Respect,

Mrs. Wallace and Mrs. Harris

Queridos Padres de Familia,

Este es el mensaje que queremos inculcarles a nuestros estudiantes en la escuela. ¡Como maestros de SME, creemos que ellos pueden ser INCREÍBLES! ¡Esperamos que nuestros estudiantes sientan en sus corazones que tenemos fe en sus sueños, que creemos que ellos pueden hacer cualquier cosa en la vida, pase lo que pase, y que les proveeremos muchas oportunidades diferentes para ser creativos, aprender, trabajar, fracasar y sobre todo TENER ÉXITO! Nuestro objetivo es asegurarnos de seguir ayudando a nuestros estudiantes en convertirse en montañas y no sentirse como un grano de arena, cada día de la escuela. ¡Reiteraré otra vez, y continuare diciendo, lo afortunada que estoy de trabajar con talentosos maestros que apoyan esta creencia en niños y quiénes son tan apasionados como lo estoy yo en la creencia que nuestros estudiantes son maravillosos y pueden conseguir sus sueno!

Al mirar hacia delante lo que nos depara este año, la Sra. Harris y yo estamos motivadas por lo que esta por venir. Los maestros han estado trabajando muy duro para crear y escribir nuevas lecciones para el desarrollo del lenguaje ingles, que ayudará a su niño/a adquirir el inglés más fácil y más rápido. También comenzamos a aprender sobre las nuevas Normas Fundamentales Comunes, que serán los nuevos objetivos que los estudiantes tendrán que aprender a través del país. Trabajaremos con usted, así le ayudara a familiarizarse con ellos mientras que el año continúa.

También, quiero compartir que nos concedieron nuestras Frutas frescas y Subvención de Verduras otra vez este año! Lo que esto significa es que proveeremos a todos los niños una fruta fresca, cuatro días de la semana en la escuela. Esperamos que esto les dé más oportunidades de comer sano y ser expuesto a la comida nutritiva en la escuela.

Esperamos que usted este en alerta para aquellas ventas de uniformes para el regreso a clases. ¡Tendremos el mismo uniforme para el próximo año, así que abastézcase de aquellas nuevas camisas agradables que son una venta por $5.00  ahora mismo en las tiendas!

Con Respeto,

Sra. Wallace
