Dear Saklan Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope you have had a restful and enjoyable time with your family and friends.   After two weeks of relaxation, it is great to be back at Saklan and start 2018 with renewed energy and enthusiasm.  Our faculty and staff started the year with a professional development day on January 2nd.  Our day was spent learning about and reviewing First Aid and CPR skills.  Maintaining a safe and healthy environment is an important part of our strategic plan at Saklan, and having every teacher and staff member trained in dealing with accidents in a competent and efficient manner is critical to ensuring the safety and well-being of our students.

This year we have designated the first Friday of every moth as Saklan Spirit Day. On Spirit Day we encourage all students to wear their Saklan t-shirts and sweatshirts and show their school spirit. This morning we had a very enjoyable Flag during which our Student Council led the entire student body in practicing our school cheer.  The cheer was created for our participation in the Walnut Creek Twilight Parade and is probably the reason why this year Saklan won first place in the category of ‘Educational Institution.’  Here is how the cheers goes:

Well I don’t know but I’ve been told,

Saklan kids are good as gold!

When work gets tough, we don’t fold,

Cause we’ve got grit that makes us bold!

Gimme an s! (S)

Gimme an a! (A)

Gimme a k! (K)

Gimme an l! (L)

Gimme an a! (A)

Gimme an n! (N)

What does that spell?  SAKLAN!

Have a great weekend and cheers!!

Peter
