PTC News - March 2024

March 2024


 


 

Principal's Corner


Hello Dragon Families,


We hope your first official report card of the year was informative and helpful in reporting your child’s progress. It is important to acknowledge a student’s successes as well as supporting them with identifying and working on those areas that could use more development. Our teachers work so hard on administering assessments in groups as well as individual settings to collect “hard data” that informs what they report to you. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to your teacher or me to clarify anything.


Approaching your child’s learning from a growth perspective can also be helpful when discussing your child’s progress with them. Make sure you recognize their strengths and assets as you guide them toward working on those areas which they need more work. Everyone has a learning edge and it’s critical that we share our own with our students as we help them intentionally identify skills they need to improve.


In other news, our site bond committee recently met with our 19-Six Architectural Design firm and district facilities leadership to identify critical areas in need of improvement with regard to our facilities. Bond Measure L, which was passed in November 2022 with over 71% voter approval, will help fund future improvements to our entire roof as well as Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning in the interior learning spaces for Rooms 13-18. We understand the challenges in those areas of our school which have not been modernized and are in need of short/long-term improvements. We will continue to work with our facilities team to make it happen. We are also grateful for the recent work that has been accomplished thus far!


Warmest regards,

Thien Hua - Principal
