    Trait of the Month: Compassion/Compasion

    The sun is setting and it's getting chilly, but Bear is not home and his friends are wondering if Bear has lost his way.

    Well friends don't let friends stay lost, so out into the cold march all the usual suspects. Wren, Owl and Raven take to the skies while Badger, Mole, and Mouse search on the ground. Pretty soon Bear is found, and once he's back in his cave, he feels quite safe with his friends all around.

    Welcome to James PB Duffy, School #12!

     
     
     
     
     
     NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
     Happy New Year and Winter Greetings to our Families and Friends of School 12. The winter snow is here and so is the opportunity to reflect on what makes our learning community so unique. School 12 supports over 900 children and three special programs: HOLA Dual Language Immersion Program, Integrated Autism Spectrum Program, and an enriched general education program that provides students with opportunities for Academic Challenge and Enrichment and Academic Intervention Services. We have an expansive number of ensembles and offerings for musical studies, a fabulous visual arts program, and an after-school program that is designed to support our English Language Learners and children with an incarcerated loved one beginning in February. Over the past few months, Hurricane Maria impacted our school family in many ways. Our students learned the power of community organization as they raised funds to assist our neighbors as they work to restore electricity and water and repair damaged infrastructure in Puerto Rico. That also means that School 12 is receiving many of the over 400 new families who are arriving (to date) in Rochester who are seeking refuge in the United States. We warmly welcome our new students and families and are working hard to ensure that we can provide the services and supports they need. We have many blessings to be grateful for, and I am proud of our team and the service they are providing to our newest families. I wish everyone a safe and healthy New Year!

    NOTA DE LA DIRECTORA
     
    Feliz año nuevo y saludos de invierno a nuestras familias y amigos de la escuela 12. La nieve invernal está aquí y también la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre lo que hace que nuestra comunidad de aprendizaje sea única. School 12 apoya a más de 900 niños y tres programas especiales: HOLA Programa de Inmersión en Dos Idiomas, Programa de Espectro Autista Integrado, y un programa de educación general enriquecido que brinda a los estudiantes oportunidades para el Desafío Académico y Enriquecimiento y Servicios de Intervención Académica. Tenemos un gran número de conjuntos y ofrendas para estudios musicales, un fabuloso programa de artes visuales y un programa extracurricular diseñado para apoyar a nuestros estudiantes del idioma inglés y a los niños con un ser querido encarcelado a partir de febrero. En los últimos meses, el huracán María afectó a nuestra familia escolar de muchas maneras. Nuestros estudiantes aprendieron el poder de la organización comunitaria mientras recaudaban fondos para ayudar a nuestros vecinos mientras trabajan para restaurar la electricidad y el agua y reparar la infraestructura dañada en Puerto Rico. Eso también significa que la escuela 12 está recibiendo muchas de las más de 400 nuevas familias que están llegando (hasta la fecha) a Rochester que buscan refugio en los Estados Unidos. Damos una calurosa bienvenida a nuestros nuevos estudiantes y familias y estamos trabajando arduamente para garantizar que podamos brindar los servicios y apoyos que necesitan. Tenemos muchas bendiciones por las cuales estar agradecidos y estoy orgulloso de nuestro equipo y del servicio que brindan a nuestras familias más nuevas. ¡Les deseo a todos un nuevo año seguro y saludable!
