8th grade girls closer

Dear Saklan Parents,

While considered one of the gloomiest months in some parts of the world, February is really a fun month at Saklan.  As the kick-off to our Fun Fridays in February program, today we had Hawaiian Day.  This is a theme that resonates very well with the Saklan community since it is a very popular part of our 7th Grade program.  In fact our students just came back from their week-long visit to Oahu where they were engaged in a multi-facetted study of Evolution and Adaptation, Hawaiian Culture, and the History of World War 2. Our focus on Hawaii was further enhanced with a talk by Captain Marnane, a survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Events scheduled for the rest of the month include Class Theme Day on Friday, February 16th and Pajama Day on Friday, February 23rd. Get ready for your children showing a lot of excitement for the next couple of Fridays, and don’t miss coming to Flag to be part of the action.  Dress appropriately!

Last week the Moraga Rotary inaugurated the opening of the All-Access Playground Project in Moraga Commons.  This two year-long project, with a goal to ensure that all children have access to playground structures, was supported by our students.  Last year we made a donation of $782 raised through a series of bake sales.  I encourage you to visit the playground and while there have a look at the dedication plaque.

Have a great weekend,

Peter
