Dear Commander Community,
Monday is Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a day for us to recognize and celebrate the impact and influence Indigenous Peoples have had on our country throughout history. See President Biden’s Presidential Proclamation of Indigenous Peoples’ Day HERE.
Parents, we need your help with teaching our students to create healthy habits when using technology. Encourage your student to unplug from their cell phones and their Chromebooks at night; and, store their devices in an area away from where they sleep. Additionally, refrain from calling and texting your child during the school day. Our teachers are working hard to engage our students in relevant and rigorous learning experiences; and, it causes a significant disruption when students are on their phones and express that they must talk to their parent/guardian. If there is an emergency and you need to contact your child right away, call our main office and we will get you connected asap.
Wednesday is Super Test Day! All students will have an opportunity to get on track or stay on track. Students will receive an email from Gayla Power with their testing location. All students should arrive by 7:20 am and head to their testing location by 7:25 am. See below for details:
Congratulations to Kimberly Quiroga and Melanie Barba-Favela as the winners of our T-shirt contest, we will submit these designs to our clothing vendor and t-shirts will be available soon for sale in the main hall.
REMINDER: There is no school for students on Friday 10/15 for a Teacher Conference Exchange Day and no school for students on Monday 10/18 for Teacher Professional Learning.
