Principal

 
Dear Family and Friends,
Welcome to 2017! We are excited to begin a new year and to continue the work we began in the fall to actualize our vision and mission. We truly want everyone in our learning community to feel KNOWN, CREATIVE, INSPIRED, CHALLENGED, SUPPORTED, RESPECTED, and EMPOWERED. Our mission continues to be to do whatever it takes to prepare our students for college, career and citizenship. We are a wonderfully diverse school community rich in language, tradition and cultural knowledge. Our diversity is our strength!
 
Family engagement is critical for our student success. There is so much research that supports the intentional involvement of families in the education of their child and the academic progress that child experiences. There are three important questions every family member should ask and know the answer to be truly involved. The three questions are the following:
 
1. What three things should my child know by the end of the year?
2. What does my child know now?
3. What actions can I do at home to support the learning?
 
If you don’t know the answer to these questions, we need to do a better job at communicating with you. Feel free to ask your child’s teacher these specific questions as well. Unless you know the answers to these questions, it is difficult to really partner with us in moving your child forward academically and socially. Our goal is to make sure you have this information and to listen and learn from you the best ways to support your child here at school. You are your child’s first teacher and your knowledge about your child is very important to us.
 
There are other ways to be involved in our school. There is a newly founded Parent and Teacher Association (PTA). The president is Michelle McGee, the parent of a current 6th grader. She is actively looking for new members and parents to take on a leadership role. The PTA is a national organization and provides opportunities for parents to network, fund raise and support the goals of the school. You have seen the PTA in action if you have visited on Fridays and smelled the delicious popcorn. Popcorn Fridays are one way the PTA raises funds to support things like art projects and field trips that otherwise would not be affordable. Information about how to contact Michelle and to join the PTA is available in our office.
 
In addition to the PTA, our Assistant Principal Brian Tinsley and White Center CDA host a Parent Breakfast Club the third Thursday of the month. Join other parents for pancakes or breakfast burritos and conversation that is relevant and important to parents. The Parent Breakfast Club is held in our Focus Center.
 
We are forming a robust volunteer program. Currently we have parents that volunteer in classrooms, in the cafeteria and on the playground. Please come talk with me or Brian Tinsley if you are interested in volunteering at school. There are many ways to contribute and your children think it’s really “cool” to have you there.
 
I wish you and your family the best for 2017. We are honored to work with your students and look forward to a productive rest of the school year!
Sincerely,
Lisa Escobar, Directora

  • Learn About School Schedule Decisions

    Making a decision about weather-related school closures is always difficult, because so many different situations have to be considered. We do our very best to balance the many interests at stake, but we recognize that no matter what decision we make, it will not please everyone.
