  • Recap of First Principal's Coffee on Sep 1
    Principal Katherine Rivera hosted the first Coffee with the Principal on Sep 1. She gave an overview of the school's mission and new focus on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). 

    Dr. Em unveiled our new Makery in Room 12 and described the fun imaginative things our students can create in the new space.

    Mackenzie B from Education Outside stopped by to introduce the new outdoor garden program. They are looking for parent volunteers to help work on the garden on Sep 9 anytime between 8AM and 1PM. Snacks will be provided.

    Yesenia L (PTA president) and Caroline C (PTA treasurer) thanked the parents for all their support. But the work is never done as we continue fundraising efforts this year. The ability to donate online and donate monthly are new options.

    Claudia G gave an update on a new program from the police department available to John Gill families. The first round of classes will be conducted in Spanish with another round in English to be announced later.

    Claudia M reviewed the Los Dichos program and the value it brings to our students. It requires only 2 hours of commitment per month. Those interested in volunteering can email
