TGIF (That Girl Is Funny)

My Weekly Friday Message 2/7/2020

Dear Stellar Families,


We had an incredible week at Stellar. Walden West came on Wednesday to give the future campers the down low. I allowed the 4th grade students to sit in on the presentation to get them excited about next year and they were VERY excited... (sorry, not sorry) 


Speaking of Walden West:  The walk a thon paperwork went home on Tuesday (I was out on Monday) Start asking your friends and neighbors to sponsor your child for our Science Camp fundraiser. They may not be going to Science Camp this year, but they either went last year or are going to be attending in the not so distant future. We have created a Science Camp fund to pay for the chartered bus that we use each year and your 2nd/3rd/4th grader is paying it forward. Our 7th and 8th graders benefitted from this fund last year, so they are giving back to their community. It's a giving circle!  Prizes are awarded for most laps completed and most money collected.


We had our first visitor's day of the new year this week. We had 5 very hopeful families looking for answers and solutions in attendance. You would likely recognize yourselves in each of them. One family has already filled out the paperwork and wants to move ahead ASAP.  We try and work very hard to be the light at the end of that tunnel. Those who take the leap are rarely disappointed in the results. It is a challenge - everyday. We are small but mighty; we got this.


Under the category of fun: The Tech Museum and radio station KDFC have partnered up for a Kids Discovery Day at the Tech in San Jose. It's free and it looks fun. So if you have Sunday, February 23 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm open, check it out... Here's the link to the event. Tech Fun
