Dear Parents, Students, and Guests,
As we approach the middle of the Fall semester, it is time to take a moment and let you know how things are proceeding. Our current enrollment is sitting at over 1100 students, over 100 more students than last year, as word is spreading in the community that great things are happening at Encina.
The end of the 1st quarter was October 12, with Quarter 1 grade reports coming out on or about October 19. Reports will be handed to students AND mailed home. As you review your child’s report card, be sure talk to them about their grades, the factors that may be impacting them, and the plans your child has to maintain and/or improve them. Of course, any questions you may still have after talking the report card over with you child should be directed to his/her teachers. As we proceed through the year, remember that parents can and should always log onto the ParentPortal to stay informed of their children’s grades and attendance. The portal is athttps://swwebapp8.sanjuan.edu/parentportal .
During the week of September 23rd Encina held its first annual Family Literacy Night for grades 6 through 9, followed the week of September 30th when we held our fall Student-Led Conferences. We hope you were able to attend either event, as parent involvement in their children’s academic pursuits is essential to their success. The next round of conferences will be held the week of April 20th. So mark your calendars now to ensure you can attend.
As the 2nd Quarter gets underway, be mindful that we will not have school on November 11th and 12th. Also, during the week of November 25th the school will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The last day of the fall semester is December 20th.
Together, we continue to transform Encina into the school your child deserves. There are many aspects of this work that will require our combined efforts. We will continue to ask for your input, to seek out your help, and to keep you informed, as we work to make Encina a place where parent and community collaboration is not just desired, but necessary.
