Hello Los Paseos Families!

Welcome back to a new and exciting year at Los Paseos Elementary! I hope your summer has been filled with new adventures and special times with family and friends. I’ve always loved summer as a time for reading some good books. I hope you and your children have made time this summer to enjoy books together. I really loved reading “Fish In A Tree” and “Raymie Nightingale” which were both recommended to me by 5th graders last spring. I’ve also been reading several professional books about how we can partner to create an exceptional educational experience for our children. I know as a mom, there’s not much that makes me happier than when my children are excited about going to school. That’s what I hope for every one of our students–that they will feel supported, celebrated, and excited for learning.

Our staff has been busy getting ready to welcome our students on August 16. Summer is a great time for us to clear out the old, and make room for the new. There are some positive changes underway at Los Paseos, including a makeover of our school library, and the addition of a tech lab/maker space. We will start the school year with a kick-off of our Positive Behavior/PAWS Program, a celebration of reading, and a focus for everyone on being a kind and giving member of the Los Paseos community.

We look forward to partnering this year with our Los Paseos families to create many memorable events where we build community, honor one another’s cultures and experiences, and celebrate our learning together!

Happy New Year!

Debbie Stewart
