Principal Coffee Chat.jpg

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”  -Helen Keller

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to invite you to join me at a monthly “Principal Coffee Chat”, where we can have an informal discussion about our school.  It will be a good opportunity for me to share our school’s goals for the year, collaboratively plan for upcoming events, and/or address questions or concerns you might have.  The meetings will begin at 8:15 in the Fine Arts Room (119).  Below are the meeting dates for the 2013-2014 school year.  I look forward to seeing you there.
 

In partnership with you,

Mrs. Raquel Kusunoki

Some students have also written, edited and published their own videos. If you explore their personal websites you may able to find some of these gems. In the mean time feel free to enjoy our first video project as group: What's Your Sentence? And feel free to share your sentence in the comment section of the video. 

Drop Off / Pick Up Zones Safety

Safe School Zone.jpg

We would like to remind all drivers about some safeguards when transporting students to and from Weller Elementary School to help ensure the safety of our students, staff, and motorists:
 

DROP OFF/PICK UP ZONES

  • Always pull to the far right and as far forward as possible in the designated drop off areas (closest to the Learning Lab) when picking up or dropping off your student/s to help minimize traffic on Boulder Street.  

  • Please park your vehicle either at the Multi-Purpose Parking Lot or the Office parking lot, but never leave your car unattended in the drop off/pick up zone as it block all incoming traffic.

  • Speed limit inside Weller Elementary School parking lot is 5 MPH.
     

Together, we will need to increase safety measures in the best interests of our students when going to and from school.  As always, thank you for your continued support.
