Head’s Corner

Dear Saklan Community,

Last Friday marked the end of our second trimester and report cards are being put in the mail today. You will also receive an email today inviting you to sign up for our Parent-Teacher Conferences which are held on March 23 & 24. This year, we will be doing all of conference sign ups online using SignUp Genius. This is a great time to get an update on your child’s academic progress as we move towards the end of the year.


One of the important themes that we have been working on at Saklan has been generosity. This has clearly been embraced by our community at the Saklan Annual Auction, An Evening in Old Hollywood. This was not only a fun event but produced impressive earnings which will help us keep on track with our programs, and give us a tremendous boost in further developing our STEM program. A big thank you to Katy DeBasa, Tony Edwardson, all of the volunteers that worked on the auction, and all of the parents that donated and supported the auction, for a memorable evening. Our Fund-a-Need project was well supported, and we managed to raise over $50,000. As a result, this summer we will be able to renovate our Science Lab and purchase new equipments and materials to enhance STEM at Saklan.

Two exciting dates are on the calendar for March. Our annual concert at the Lesher Center for the Arts is scheduled for March 16th, and Grandparents and Special Friends Day is on March 31st. I look forward to big crowds on these important and fun events.

Have a great weekend,
