Principal’s Message ~ Oficina de la Directora
From our Principal,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at SMG! I hope that you all had a wonderful and restful summer! We are looking forward to a new year at our Environmental Science Academy filled with tons of learning, environmental science experiments and projects, adventures, and new memories that will last a lifetime! Our Environmental Science Academy welcomes our new assistant principal, Nathan Winchell, and our teachers: Jaime Cervantes, Melissa Molina and Nubia Fernandez (DIME), and Michele Deering and Jennifer Page (Middle School). We also want to welcome Karina Avila, who will be our psychologist, and Rosemarie Austin, who will be our additional part time resource specialist. She will be working with Mrs. Brooks, who this year will be in charge of our resource program.
This year, we will continue to provide our students with hands-on activities and project based learning that will help them prepare for the 21st century work force. Our professional learning community will continue designing lessons that facilitate collaboration, communication, and creativity in the classroom, reinforcing leadership skills in our children. As a school, we will continue working on PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support). In addition, SMG students will continue to work on reinforcing the six pillars of character: responsibility, caring, respect, trustworthiness, and fairness. Please support us at home with our monthly values.
We look forward to fantastic school year, and thank you for choosing San Martin/Gwinn as your home.
