FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS The 2014-2015 school year is racing to an end – with celebrations – year-end picnics in the park and breakfasts, the graduation of our immersion seniors and the promotion of our fifth graders. This time of year is the ending of the K-12 Immersion experience for our graduating seniors and the beginning of their next stage on the journey to adulthood. Each year Edison hosts an Immersion Seniors Graduation Celebration here on campus. Saturday we welcomed back the Edison 5th grade class of 2008 and it was wonderful to reconnect with these young adults who were so dear to us as children, to applaud their perseverance, and hear where they are headed next. It’s equally lovely to see their families again and celebrate the children’s accomplishments together. Teachers from all three schools attend hand out Immersion Medallions and California State Seals of Biliteracy, and award some scholarships from the Edison PTA. These celebrations feel like family reunions and they are truly the day when it is so clear that we are 3 Schools, 2 Languages, and 1 Program! Wednesday evening we’ll celebrate the accomplishments of our current 5th graders as they promote to 6th grade. It’s bittersweet to say goodbye to these 78 children and their families, but we send them on well-prepared for middle school. If they’re anything like their predecessors, many will be back to volunteer at Festival de Otoño, to attend the Valentine’s Dance, and to perform community service hours with the elementary school students. And we’ll await their return in seven years as they graduate from high school as the class of 2022! We’re already beginning work for 2015-2016 school year – enrolling new Kindergartners, packing up the school for summer cleaning, working on summer professional development opportunities for teachers, and putting together schedules and calendars of events. If you’re looking forward to seeing your child’s class assignment on Wednesday, August 19, please be aware that we can’t post student names on class lists until any needed inter-district permits have been obtained and any changes in address are documented. If you’ve moved and need to bring in proof of a new address or if you’ve moved out of district and need to get an inter-district permit, please do your very best to bring your information current before the end of the year. If you have a new Kindergartner and live outside SMMUSD, make sure you have your permit filed before the first day of school. Permits are generally a simple matter and Yoly can help you (call 310 828-0335, ext. 61-307). See you in August! Kindergarten Picnic Sunday, August 17

El año escolar del 2014 – 2015 va de carrera a su fin – con celebraciones – picnic de fin de año en el parque y desayunos, la graduación de nuestros estudiantes de inmersión del 12º grado y la promoción de nuestros estudiantes de 5º grado. Este tiempo del año es el fin de la experiencia de Inmersión de K – 12 para nuestros estudiantes en el 12º grado y el comienzo de la siguiente etapa en la jornada hacia ser adultos. Cada año Edison anfitriona una Celebración de Graduación para los Estudiantes del 12º grado de Inmersión aquí en Edison. El sábado les dimos la bienvenida de nuevo a los estudiantes del 5º grado del año 2008 y fue tan maravilloso reconectar con estos jóvenes adultos quienes fueron muy queridos por nosotros de niños, para aplaudir su perseverancia, y escuchar hacia a dónde siguen. Es igualmente lindo ver a las familias de nuevo y celebrar los logros de los niños juntos. Maestros de las tres escuelas asistieron y repartieron Medallones de Inmersión y Cellos de Doble Alfabetismo del Estado de California, y presentaron algunas becas de la PTA de Edison. ¡Estas celebraciones se sienten como reuniones familiares y son realmente el día cuando es tan claro que somos 3 Escuelas, 2 Idiomas, y 1programa! El miércoles por la noche celebraremos los logros de nuestros estudiantes presentes en el 5º grado mientras son promovidos al 6º grado. Es agridulce decirles adiós a estos 78 niños y a sus familias, pero los mandamos bien preparados para la escuela media. Si son parecidos a sus predecesores, muchos regresarán a ser voluntarios en el Festival de Otoño, asistir al Baile de San Valentín, y a dar horas de servicio comunitario con los estudiantes en la escuela primario. ¡Y esperaremos su regreso en siete años cuando se gradúen de la preparatoria como la clase del 2022! Ya estamos comenzando el trabajo para el año escolar del 2015 – 2016 – registrando a nuevos estudiantes para el Kindergarten, empacando la escuela para la limpieza del verano, trabajando en oportunidades de desarrollo profesional para los maestros para el verano, y coordinando horarios y calendarios de eventos. Si ustedes están anticipando ver las asignaciones de clases de sus hijos el min anticipando ver las asignaciones de clases de sus hijos el miércoles, 19 de agosto, por favor tengan en mente que no podemos poner los nombres de los estudiantes en ninguna lista hasta que cualquier permiso de inter-distrito sea conseguido y cualquier cambio de dirección sea documentado. Si ustedes se mudaron y necesitan traer pruebas de una nueva residencia o si se han mudado fuera del distrito y necesitan conseguir un permiso de inter-distrito, por favor hagan lo mejor para traer su información presente antes del fin de año. Si tienen un estudiante nuevo para el Kindergarten y viven fuera de SMMUSD, asegúrense de tener su permiso archivado antes del primer día de clases. Los permisos generalmente son simples y Yoly les puede ayudar (llamen al 310 828-0335, extensión 61-307). ¡Nos vemos en agosto!
