    Quote of the week: “You must do the things you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt


    Welcome Back

    We are gearing up for another great year at Camino Pablo. I was lucky enough to enjoy Tahoe with friends and family for ten days in July. I hope your family was able to make some memories too. 


    Thursday is the first official day teachers are back at work. However, many of our teachers have been hard at work since early August. Thursday and Friday teachers will take part in all day professional development. During these days teachers will collaborate around topics such as around Reader’s and Writer’s workshop, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and training on our new K-2nd phonics adoption.  On Monday teachers will be hard at work in their classrooms. 


    Class Placement: On Monday, August 20 after 4:00 you will receive your child’s class placement via email. It is important you understand that the CP staff have worked for many hours to build balanced classes. We know you will support us with an enthusiastic response to your child’s classroom assignment. Your attitude goes a long way in making for a successful year.
