Dear San Miguel Families,

Happy New Year! I hope the winter break afforded you the opportunity to spend quality time with your students and connect with loved ones in meaningful ways. We look forward to your return, Tuesday, January 7th, at 8:00 AM. 

Many thanks to our PTA for hosting the Lil’ Shopper’s Shoppe and the Winter Dance prior to the break. It was wonderful to see our families come out in support of these events. I also want to thank you for your generosity during our December Food Drive. Your donations helped support families at San Miguel, as well as others through the San Diego Food Bank. We hope to continue the spirit of giving as we participate in the Great Kindness Challenge later this month.

As we return from a much needed time of rest, we must diligently care for ourselves and each other during these winter months. Remind students to wash their hands regularly and make sure they get plenty of rest each night. Let’s all try to keep stress to a minimum by practicing the 7 Habits at home, as well as at school. For those who were unable to attend the 7 Habits workshop for families earlier this year, we will be hosting free mini-workshops in the evenings of January 23rd and 30th. Contact our front office for registration information.

January is also a great time for you to give input on how we can best meet the needs of your students. This month, the District English Language Advisory Committee (DELAC) meeting will be held at San Miguel on January 21st. We will also hold Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) information sessions on the evening of January 16th and at our School Site Council meeting on January 21st.  All meetings are open to our entire learning community. Please check our school website for a complete list of event dates and times.

Wishing you a Healthy and Happy 2020! 

Yours in learning,
Mrs. Richmond
