Dear Carnelian Family,
Happy New Year! We hope that you and your family had a happy and memorable holiday season! We look forward to an ever-improving 2021 and to seeing our students back on campus, in person, as soon as it is safe enough and possible to do so.
As a reminder from last month’s letter, now is a good time to talk with your children about goals, commitments and even resolutions. This process is sometimes easier when we break it down into smaller intervals, such as a one week challenge, or a one month challenge. Either way, we can always strive to break bad habits and construct positive habits when we make a conscious effort to do so. Again, some areas to consider for children are reading goals, giving compliments, making the bed each morning, or other challenges that help them to grow and mature.
As principal of Carnelian, I want to continue to emphasize how much I appreciate hearing from our parents and school community. Your input and feedback helps us to better serve our students. It can help us to focus our efforts, allocate resources, and take steps necessary to continue to strive to improve in all that we do as a school. Please remember that I have an open door policy, and I value the conversations that I have with parents and other stakeholders of our school. This month, I plan on hosting a virtual Coffee With the Principal. It will be an opportunity to meet with parents on Google Meet and to collaborate on ideas to continually improve our school and best serve our students and their families. I will set up a Meet on Friday, January 8th at 9:00 a.m. to chat with our Carnelian parents. A reminder email will go out to share the Meet information.
I want to remind you all that we have an ambitious word count goal at Carnelian. As of today we are at 43,677,986 words as a school. That is 44% of our annual goal of 100,000,000 words. I am very proud of our first seven millionaires: Abigail Mendoza, Stephanie Chorba, Arianna Chorba, Lyla Pinedo, Emily Ellis, Emma Garcia, and Noah Coleman. We may have a couple more by the time you read this, as there are a few students getting very close. Let’s keep up the great work!
Thank you for taking time to stay informed regarding your child’s education. As Helen Keller said, “Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” Thanks so much for partnering with us and supporting us as we do all that we can to enhance the lives of our students.
