Dear Families,

Happy Friday! We had another wonderful morning performance during this first week of Black History Month of our Honoring the Dream series with Suma’s class, Susan’s class, and Jessica/Luis’ class. You can view their performances here.

I’m thinking today of Janus, the Roman god of transitions, with her two faces – one looking backward and one looking forward. We are almost at our half-way point for the school year. What a few months it has been! I am continually impressed how our students have been learning and engaging at school, and how our teachers and staff have been working tirelessly to support them — especially in the midst of this ongoing pandemic. Progress reports will be going out in the next couple of weeks, and I encourage you to use these helpful tools as guides to how we can look forward. What progress can we make, together, between now and June?

A few other quick updates:

  • There will be no school from February 21-25 due to mid-winter break.
  • You can view this week’s Chancellor’s letter for families here.
  • Please message me on Bloomz if your child, or anyone in your household, tests positive for COVID, or if your child is exposed to a COVID-positive person outside of school, so that I may offer personalized guidance. 

Enjoy your weekend!
