Dear Panther Students and Families,
Greetings! I trust that your summer was full of exciting books, sunshine, and special moments with family and friends. As we embark on the 2017-2018 school year, I am thrilled to be joining Los Paseos as Interim Principal. I can’t wait to meet the students and families that I’ve heard so many good things about. Mrs. Mittleman speaks very highly of the Los Paseos community, and I trust that we will have a rewarding year together!
Also this year, we are gaining a few other new staff members. Mrs. Tina Tabuchi will be teaching Transitional Kindergarten , Miss Kendall Knutsen will be joining Team 1st Grade, and Miss Courtney Clampett will be joining Team 3rd Grade. Each of us is looking forward to settling in and making Los Paseos our home.
In preparation for the school year, staff members have been participating in a wide range of professional development opportunities to ultimately enhance your child’s educational experience. Morgan Hill Unified recently adopted a new English Language Arts and English Language Development curriculum titled “Wonders”. This curriculum is built on the California Framework and the California Common Core State Standards. Through connected pathways, intentional instruction. and inspiring content, we have a collective responsibility to prepare ALL students for college and career in the 21st century. Panther staff members are committed to making this transitional year a smooth sail!
I know that Los Paseos will continue to be a place where students thrive. With core academic instruction, enrichments, interventions, and social emotional supports, we take great pride in having a “Whole Child” approach to your child’s education. Remember, we believe that communication is key to us staying afloat! Please take the time to review our PAWSitive Behavior Expectations Matrix and join our efforts in promoting a safe and caring climate. Be sure to ask your child how they are contributing to the PAWSitively Panther spirit at school!
As we sail our journey, remember that working together is the key to our success. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher, our amazing office staff, or myself. I look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on August 30, 2017, at 6:00 P.M.
Please review the PAWSitive Behavior Expectations Matrix and join our efforts in promoting a safe and caring climate. Be sure to ask your child how they are contributing to the PAWSitively Panther spirit at school! Please review our “ABC’s” vision and mission statement:
We know that all students can achieve their personal best through PAWS expectations of being peaceful, aware, wise and safe on campus.
We believe that all students can make positive contributions to society and it is our moral imperative to tap into each individual’s potential.
We cultivate 21st century skills and encourage our students to persevere.
