December 2014

Time is flying at School 12!  The holidays and our big winter break are three weeks away (12/22-1/4/15)!



I am most thankful for the incredible instruction I am seeing in each classroom!

Our teachers continue to push themselves to a higher standard of instruction that continues to challenge our students to learn! I wish all families could see what I see on a daily basis in our classrooms! At our superintendent day’s retreat, one theme of comments from most of our staff was how much knowledge our students remember from last year! We see evidence of success in the common core standards at School 12!  We hope you saw that evidence in your student’s report card!

Many thanks to the generous School # 12 community for their contributions of time, talent and resources this season. Our students, PTA and staff supported 34 families with Thanksgiving food boxes and Mrs. Pugliese's 6th grade class raised over $200 for veterans in our community. Miss Ortiz and Mr. Ruderman’s 3rd grade Hola class prepared and preformed an awesome play based on a folk tale from Puerto Rico for our Hispanic Celebration! The School # 12 green team which encourages recycling is up and running at our new building!

Over 130 students are involved in our fall clubs, including Zumba, cooking, storytelling, yoga, theatre, Latin Dance, robotics and basketball. Our Mighty Ducks basketball team just won their first game! We are so proud! Check out our school calendar for the next home game  on the 12/18  to come support our fine team!

Mark you calendars for some upcoming School #12 events.  Our music teachers are working hard to prepare our fantastic Holiday Concert on December 17th at 6pm! This concert never fails to amaze its audience!  Family exercise events are quickly approaching with January 17th- ice skating and February 7th-sledding and newly introduced family Chili Cook-Off! January is not complete without our awe-inspiring Arts Festival on January 29th! All these great events are ways to connect with other school families and celebrate our wonderful School 12 community!

From all the staff at School 12, we wish you happy and heartwarming holidays with your family!
