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,


100th Day of School!


On Thursday, February 8th, students in the Hoot Owls, Kindergarten and 1st grade celebrated the completion of 100 days of school so far this year! Parties, games, snacks, and activities all centered around the big number 100.

Transportation Celebration


Last week, the Owlets celebrated the end of their Transportation Unit by bringing their bikes/scooters/trikes to campus. They also got to ride around the block on the Saklan School bus! What a fun day!




Childhood Pearl Harbor Survivor

1st pick square

The entire Middle School was treated to a talk about the Attack on Pearl Harbor by retired Navy Captain and former Commanding Officer of Pearl Harbor, Tom Marnane.  A big part of the talk centered around the impact the event had on him as an 8-year-old child headed to the bus stop when the first attack on the air base at Wheeler Field took place.  His knowledge of the history of the attack, capabilities of the ships and weapons served to answer the questions of many students.  His story of compassion and perseverance is an inspiration and we are very grateful to him, once again, for sharing his experiences with our students!
