A Message From Ms. Loy, Principal

Dear Hacienda families,

Welcome back from our February Winter break! I hope that you all were able to enjoy some relaxing time off with family and friends. As I write this March newsletter, I am reflecting on February…

February brought forth an abundance of prospective Hacienda families, who joined our sensational group of volunteers as they led the way through our amazing school. A special thank you to all of those who generously offered their time and knowledge of Hacienda as tour leaders. And thank you to our teachers, for welcoming these potentially new families as they peeked into your classrooms. I know that they were thoroughly impressed with the wonderful instruction and learning that they saw as they walked through your doors.

Our new board trustee, Paymon Zarghami, paid a visit to Hacienda on Friday, February 6th. We sat down to chat about our school, and then visited several classrooms, our science lab and outdoor classroom, and our music room. Mr. Zarghami asked many questions, and was WOWED by our school. He will be sure to visit us again soon (and he has a full calendar of our events to choose from).

The Spring conference window runs from March 2-13th. Your child’s teacher will contact you if a conference is needed. March 12th and March 13th, Thursday and Friday, are early release days. School is out at 1:06. Report cards will be sent home during the conference window.

Well, folks, it’s hard to believe that March is here, and Spring is right around the corner. That means Spring Fling, Earth Day, and so many reasons to celebrate!  Remember, daylight saving time begins on March 8th, so “Spring” your clocks forward one hour, and enjoy the extra hour of sunshine.

Warm regards,

Carmen Loy
