Head’s Corner

Dear Saklan Community,

We’ve come to the last act of the 2016 academic year and it’s hard to believe that this event filled year has come to an end. The final act has been the superlative rendition of Seussical KIDS by our Grades 3 to 5 students this morning. Thank you again Mrs. Chaffey and all the teachers and staff that helped, for creating the stage and the enthusiasm. Ending our year with such a showing of talent and passion is a fitting way to sum up the Saklan experience and underscore our mission of thinking creatively, acting compassionately, and living courageously.


With the start of 2017, we will continue our school-wide discussions around creating a vision for the future of Saklan. This will take place as a round table discussion on January 6th at 9:00AM. Another important event in January is our Town Hall meeting on January 27th. It will be at 9:00AM right after Flag. Please make sure you put this date on your calendar as there will be a full agenda of important announcements and news that will interest the entire community.

As I reflect on the year 2016, I am pleased to affirm that each student has tried his or her best and has moved a little closer to reaching his or her full potential. I am very proud of them all. I’d also like to thank each of you for your contribution to our community. It’s the people of Saklan that make it such a special place and I appreciate your support and positive energy. I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful break together and I wish you many blessings in the coming New Year.

Have a great holiday!
