It has been my distinct pleasure to join the Santiago Faculty as new principal for the 2015-16 school year. Our outstanding teachers have earned a tremendous reputation in our community by leading the way in providing innovative teaching and learning opportunities. Our teachers were hard at work this summer attending an assortment of new trainings and are ready to share their engaging lessons with our students as they continue to take their teaching to the next level.
How can you help your child get off to a great start? Remember to arrive to school early, provide a good learning environment for homework to be completed each day, and ask your child questions about their hopes for this school year/daily homework but also ask about their future hopes for College and Career. Helping students make positive connections to their future dreams can increase their daily motivation and effort. Closely monitor and talk with your child each day and contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about their learning progress.
Advanced Science and Math Programs!
This year we have new Innovative Programs set to begin. Our wonderful Science teachers will be offering a leading edge Science program that integrates innovative practices, including the use of Robotics via Project Lead the Way curriculum. We are also pleased to announce an increased number of accelerated Honor classes in the area of Math, which will allow some students the choice to complete Algebra 1 while attending Santiago.
More Technology in student’s hands!
We are pleased to share that we are expanding our one-on-one device program to include all 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th graders (future plans will include 4th graders). All 5th graders are set to receive a device (chrome book or iPad) to be used as a 21st century learning tool.
Santiago’s PTA welcomes your membership and needs your support as they once again aim to bring in the best that Southern California has to offer in the way of meaningful events and learning opportunities that help our students to develop as well rounded scholars.
I hope you are able to come meet the new Principal at one of the upcoming ‘Coffee Chat’ meetings on 9/08/15 at 8:30am or 9/10/15 at 6pm
