Principal's Notes:

Principal DawsDear Marina Families,

It was another incredible week with our students... but it seems to quickly be leading toward summer which I always find special for everyone and also sad in that we miss the kids and their incredible energy.

We have track events going on and I will be posting a track schedule shortly. 

The eighth graders will be given their directions for a letter to the principal as part of the promotion process.  These will be given to them next week by their English teachers and will be due by May 3.  I love reading these letters and understanding the many things that are important to our students.

Have a great weekend.

Ginny Daws

Coming up:

8th grade parents: graduation photos were delivered during social studies.  Students need to pay or return the photos to their social studies teachers.

8th grade end of year activities letters went home in language arts classes and includes information about Great America, the dinner dance and promotion.

In faculty news:

  • Ms. Scott, Language Arts teacher, has returned from maternity leave.
  • Ms. Lamb, our head counselor, has returned and will be taking over the 8th grade counseling duties.  
  • Ms. Araujo, 8th grade counselor, has taken a personal leave through the end of the year.
  • Ms. Trina Ponce will continue as the 7th grade counselor.
  • Ms. Ma, our Cantonese teacher, has also taken a leave through the end of the year due to health reasons.

We are in the beginning stages of planning for our May Carnival which will be amazing as we will have a number of new activities.  Anyone who would like to help, please contact Matt Helmenstine.
