Principal's Weekly Message

Hello Playa Families!

Welcome to week 27 and the month of March. This month we celebrate Women’s History Month as we take the time to honor and celebrate the contributions of women in American History. International Women’s Day (March 8). We also celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th

As we enter the spring quarter and second half of the school year, please help remind your children of the importance of keeping a positive attitude. Attitude #1: Watch your words. Words are powerful. Let them know your expectations to speak kindly to one another. Teach them to counter the unkind words with nice ones. Remember KINDNESS always wins! Attitude #2: Accept everyone. Leaving people out on purpose is not being fair or kind. Suggest that your child look for ways to make others feel that they belong or included.  

This message ties in with our character education trait of Fairness. Acts of being fair includes: playing by the rules, taking turns & share with others, listen and have compassion for others, include others and treat a friend how you want to be treated. Character tickets will continue to be rewarded each week to students showing their BEST behavior. Prizes will be awarded on Friday.
