Head’s Corner

Dear Saklan Community,

Today was our last flag of the school year.  It is amazing how fast this year has gone by, but equally amazing how many wonderful things have happened at Saklan. Our flag was hosted by two Kindergarten students, Arik Lopez and Narayani Chandra, who showed the confidence and courage to speak in public, which is a trademark of Saklan. At flag, we also recognized our student council and gave out student council awards. Our two Co-Presidents, Mikayla Perrin and Kylie Choi, have shown outstanding leadership this year, which is another trademark of Saklan students. A big thank you to our Middle School Dean, Kim Parks, for advising the student council and helping to develop the skills of leadership, community service and collaboration, which we have seen grow stronger in our student body.

Another area where great leadership has been shown is in our Parent Association. The well-attended, well-supported, and well-organized community events this year, such as our stellar Family Fun Night, is due to the efforts of our Parent Association. A big end-of-year thank you to our PA Board, which is made up of:

Co-Presidents: Vivian Ma & Jen Cogen

Secretary: Sandy Lo

Treasurer: Jenny Park-Choi

Communications: Lori Anders

Room Parent Coordinator: Sandy Lo

Next week is our last week of school and on Monday, our students will have fun participating in the Family Group Field Day. This is the last event in our Family Group program and is one that highlights the sense of community and “being at home” which our students feel while they are at school.

Enjoy your weekend!

Peter
