From: Rhonda Perry, Principal
The month of November was filled with so much to be thankful for here at Salk. We are thankful to have a supportive and active parent community lead by our tireless PA president, John Lo. All of you have helped us organize so that we can get to know each other better and celebrate by putting together some wonderful events, including our International Night (the food was delicious and the company was even better)! And, so many parents are serving the school by being class parents; attending Executive Board, Parent Association and School Leadership Team meetings; as well as simply pitching in to help on trips and with merchandise sales. We simply cannot thank you enough for this support. I hope you know that every little bit that you do helps! It was so wonderful to meet so many of you during Open School week and parent teacher conferences. Teachers had a brutal schedule of conferences, but we enjoyed meeting you and learning more about your children. We look forward to continuing to work with you to set goals to ensure your child’s success. Thank you to those of you who stopped by to share your insights about Salk during Open School week . My sense is that your visits to classrooms this week and interactions with teachers gave you an even better perspective on what we believe about teaching and learning. Overwhelmingly, the feedback was that you feel you chose well. I cannot think of a better compliment than having so many of you feel good about your decision to have your child journey through his/her middle school years with us!. We thank you deeply for entrusting us with your heart! Happy Thanksgiving!
