Dear Del Cerro Families,
Del Cerro staff, students, and parents have enjoyed a successful start to the new school year! Teachers and staff welcomed back our students and their families for another amazing year of learning and friendship.
Our very supportive PTA has already been busy planning fun family and school events for our community and collaborating with our staff on supporting our school and district vision of SV Innovates. We are in the planning stages of creating both an Innovation Lab (iLab) and a MakerSpace for our students. Our vision for the new iLab is to provide a space for students to explore and learn using technology such as Ozobots, Lego WeDo, and VEX robotics. A green screen studio for video creation will be available for classes to use as well. Our MakerSpace will be a separate room for our students to visit. The vision for this space is to have the room stocked with art supplies and items for engineering design challenges. Teachers and students will have resources readily available for them to use to create, build, and experiment. Our PTA sponsored Green Team will be expanding this year to include a compost bin and another planting bed. Last, all of our school community is eager to begin our training in Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS). We look forward to bringing new ideas and activities to Del Cerro to engage, motivate, and support all our students - every day.
Please don't hesitate to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. My door is always open.
Your partner in education,
Mrs. Kristin Thomsen
Principal, Del Cerro Elementary
