Dear Old Adobe Union Students and Families,
We hope that you’ve enjoyed a wonderful, adventure-filled summer break! We have been busy this summer while you have been on vacation, but are eagerly looking forward to your arrival back on our campuses.
Before students arrive on our campuses on Wednesday, August 14th, our teachers and classified staff will already have been hard at work. Besides preparing classrooms by hanging poster paper for bulletin boards and planning engaging lessons, our teachers have been demonstrating their commitment to lifelong learning by attending district professional development training focusing on Science, Language Arts, Math and social-emotional learning. Our classified maintenance staff have been busily cleaning and repairing facilities while our office staff organize mounds of student files and works on class lists. This year will see a change in our student information system as we switch over to Aeries. Look for us to open our online parent portal in this system in the future. It truly takes a dedicated and year-round district staff team to have our schools ready for students come Mid-August.
We believe our district is special, and each year we go the extra mile to prove it. Our community, and our Board of Trustees, has made a commitment to educating the whole child. All of our students receive music, PE, and library time. Over the past couple of years we have made language arts and math a focus, and each school has developed a unique school theme. We challenge our students academically, support them socially, and provide encouragement and guidance to help them grow into the amazing future leaders we know they can be. Parents are our partners in this work with active involvement in the classrooms and special events, as well as ongoing support for the school programs. We urge you to continue involvement, or jump in this coming year if time allows.
Don’t forget, school starts August 14th. Please check our website at oldadobe.org and link to your specific school for school information and the school calendar. We can’t wait to start our new year together!
