Hello Santanas,

We would like to inform parents of a great resource for students. Paper is an academic support tool that students have access to through the district. This tool provides free individual tutoring for students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Parents are invited to a free seminar to learn about the ways Paper supports student learning. Find out more information and sign up here!

Here is information for 8th grade parents regarding promotion. Please know that what we are doing for our 8th graders is not simply a “Drive Through” promotion, but a full celebration!

We would love to have families participate by decorating their cars. Once on campus, families will be directed to several stations where they will have their photo taken of the family members inside the car. Students will be dropped off at the stage area were they will receive their promotion certificates as they walk on the stage, pose for a picture with Santiago administrators and Charter Board members, have professional photos taken while on stage, and then exit the stage to return to their family car.

We will have our teachers, band, cheerleaders,  and ASB students and staff celebrating them along the route to the stage. We did this last year and many of our return families liked it better than the traditional promotion that was done in the past. Please save the date for Friday, June 11 from 8am-12pm. We will share furthur details as we move closer to the event.

As always thank you for your support. We hope that you have a safe and awesome rest of the week Santanas. See you in virtual advisory tomorrow!

Thank you, 

Santiago Staff



Hola Santanas, 

Queremos informarles de un buen recurso para nuestras familias. Paper es una herramienta de apoyo académico a la que su estudiante tiene acceso a través del distrito. Esta herramienta proporciona tutoría individual gratuita para los estudiantes las 24 horas del día, los siete días de la semana. Ofrecen a los padres un seminario gratuito para aprender más sobre las formas en que Paper apoya el aprendizaje de sus estudiantes. Use este enlace para registrarse: https://pages.paper.co/es-us/presentaciones-para-padres-o-representantes#scroll-to-form

Aquí tenemos más información para nuestras familias de estudiantes de 8o grado.  Para nuestra promoción, lo que estamos haciendo por nuestros estudiantes de octavo grado no es simplemente una promoción de "Drive thru", sino una celebración completa.

Nos encantaría que las familias decoren sus autos, serán dirigidas a varias estaciones donde podrán tomarse una foto de la familia dentro del auto ... dejar a los estudiantes en el área del escenario donde los estudiantes recibirán su certificado de promoción, mientras caminan por el escenario, se tomarán una foto con los administradores y miembros de la junta directiva, se toman fotos profesionales mientras están en el escenario y luego salen del escenario para regresar con su familia en el automóvil.

Tendremos maestros, nuestra banda, nuestras porristas y nuestros estudiantes y personal de ASB celebrándolos a lo largo del camino hacia el escenario. Hicimos esto el año pasado y a muchas de nuestras familias que regresaron les gustó más que la promoción tradicional que hemos hecho en el pasado. Por favor, reserve la fecha para el viernes 11 de junio de 8 a.m. a 12 p.m. Recibiremos más detalles a medida que nos acerquemos al evento.

¡Como siempre, gracias por su apoyo, esperamos que tengan un resto de la semana segura y fabulosa, Santanas! Los vemos en sus clase virtuales de advisory mañana.
