It is hard to believe that the end of the school year has arrived! 10 months have passed very quickly!
The year’s end always brings with it a tremendous sense of accomplishment. Our students have enjoyed another fabulous year. They have excelled in so many fields it is impossible to list them all. I have attended many celebration events and have listened in awe as their achievements have been described. These achievements have been in their academic studies, music, the arts to name just a few and we are justly proud of them. Of course, we should not forget the tremendous amount of learning which has taken place during the year. Throughout all of these activities our students have demonstrated great character!
To our fifth grade graduates – congratulations on your achievement. The Sherman Oaks staff wish you all the best as you move to your new middle school. If this is your last child to leave Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter, the staff would like to thank you for your support and for the guidance that you have provided for your child(ren). We look forward to hearing from the graduates in the future and we hope that each of them will have gained a firm foundation for their education while at Sherman Oaks.
I would like to thank the members of our Student Council who did a wonderful job this past school year. Their input into the organization and life of the school is extremely important to us and I would encourage students to consider putting themselves forward for election to become class representatives.
Next year we will see a number of staff changes at Sherman Oaks. I would like to take this opportunity to bid farewell to Ms. LeVantine, Ms. Guinn, Ms. Wheeler, Ms. Wagner and Ms. Le. They will all be greatly missed by students and colleagues. We thank them for their contributions to teaching and learning at SOEC.
For those families who will be returning in August, school will begin on Tuesday, August 20.
On behalf of the staff, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy summer.
