Dear Saturn Families and Community:
Welcome to the 2018- 2019 school year! I hope you enjoyed a summer vacation filled with fun and exciting memories with your loved ones. We were thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing.
Personally, I am grateful and elated to continue this journey with you as your Principal. I look forward to maintaining a strong relationship with all of you in the upcoming year. As we enter this new school year, I want to let you know that our staff will be engaging in instructional conversations around having a growth mindset, both for themselves and all students. We believe that every person in this building should always be growing and learning.
I want to personally invite you to attend our Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, September 11 from 4:30 PM-7 PM. This will be a great time to strengthen our Saturn community, meet teachers and other families, and learn about the upcoming school year. We’ll begin the evening in the auditorium with all parents. CHILDREN ARE NOT TO ATTEND; please make child care arrangements for your household. After the meeting you’ll have the opportunity to visit with teachers at each grade-level. Our school goal is to see 100% of our families at this event. I hope to see each of you at this important event!
Lastly, I am very excited to announce that we will now have a MAGNET CENTER at Saturn! Our focus for the magnet is Arts and Media Integration using Project Based Learning. This fall families around the LAUSD can apply to attend our school. The magnet will actually open up for business next school year, 2019-2020. We will host a meeting to share the plans for the transition to a magnet center and the instructional program. Our Faculty and staff are very supportive of the magnet and they look forward to this new addition!
As always, please feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.
