The staff and I welcome you to Albert Schweitzer School, home of the Wildcats! We are a pride of strength and kindness; our work as educators are much more purposeful and productive when we collaborate together than individually. This is especially important during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges upon us are many, but we will resolve these challenges through communication and decision-making among our stakeholders. We are a neighborhood that encompasses community best stated by Coretta Scott King: “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate action of its members.”
Teachers have spent endless hours developing a curriculum based on the academic essential standards for distance learning that students can access through technology along with materials and resources that support their learning. Integrated in their planning are activities that support the social/emotional component for your child. We want to minimize any barriers our families are experiencing so students feel successful as learners. Please communicate with teachers via Seesaw, Dojo, email or phone when you have questions and/or concerns about your child’s education.
Please participate in our PTA which organizes a number of school and family events. Although our campus is closed because of COVID 19, PTA continues to meet and plan events to support their organization as in restaurant nights, which you can view on our website: https://www.sanjuan.edu/schweitzer .
Other ways parents can become involve is by becoming members of our English Learner Advisory Committee, Superintendent Parent Advisory Committee, or School Site Council. If interested please contact me.
My priority is to ensure all stakeholders: teachers, staff, parents, students have a voice and that voice is heard. During these unprecedented times it is important concerns and suggestions are shared by communicating with each other with the ultimate outcome of a safe environment for the students and their success in school.
As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at school. Thank, you!
