Summer@Saklan Pre-Registration

IMG_7222

In the last four years our Summer@Saklan Program, with a focus on learning, language and laughter, has grown by 165%.  Last year the sessions filled up very quickly and some Saklan School families were not able to get a spot. We anticipate that the demand for the program will be even greater this summer, and thus we have decided to offer you a pre-registration option so that you can lock in a place for your child before the registration opens to the public on January 16th.

The Summer@Saklan Program offers three 3-week long sessions with students divided into Mini-campers (ages 3-5) and Explorers (ages 6-11).   Costs for each session are: Mini-campers  $1100 ($800 half day), Explorers $1300 ($950 half-day).

To secure your spot before the registration opens, please fill in and return a pre-registration form together with a deposit of $100 per child by Friday, January 12th.  These forms are being sent home today with all students in PreK-Grade 5 and are also available at the school office and on Renweb.

The schedule and structure of the sessions is as follows:

Session/Dates                  Mini Campers            Explorers

S1/June 11- 29                   Spanish                         Spanish/Mandarin /Italian

S2/July 2-20                       Mandarin                      Spanish/Mandarin/French

S3/July 23-Aug.10             French                           Japanese/Italian/French

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

Every year, each member of Saklan’s community—families, faculty, and friends—is asked to make a donation to our Annual Giving Fund.  The Annual Giving Fund helps Saklan meet its budgeted needs during the current school year and provide a vibrant place for children to learn and develop.

“Thank you” to our parents, grandparents, teachers and staff, current and former trustees who have donated and pledged to our Annual Giving Fund to date.  We are truly grateful.

We will be finishing our public appeal for this fundraising campaign on Monday, January 22. This means that there are only 2 ½ more weeks remaining to send in your gifts and pledges.
