  • Wishing All A Great Summer

    Posted by Mike Swize, Ed.D. on 6/2/2023

    As we close out the 2022-23 school year I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy summer break and hope all of our students, families and community members have the opportunity to spend some time relaxing, reflecting and rejuvenating as we prepare for the start of our next school year on August 9. 


    While some of our students will be home or vacationing with their families or working summer jobs, many will be participating in District programs for part of their summer break. We have summer school to assist students who are needing extra assistance or credit recovery. We also have our Expanded Learning Summer Enrichment Camp for elementary and middle school students that runs from June 13 to 30 and will include a full state of fun activities including field trips to our local Aziz Farms, San Diego Wild Animal Park and Long Beach Aquarium. And 125 of our incoming first through seventh graders will be participating in “Camp Broadway 2023” and perform in “Jukebox America” on the final day on June 30. 


    The month of July provides the opportunity for all of our students and some of our staff to rest and recharge as we prepare for the launch of our next school year. At the same time, many of our staff members work throughout the summer to make sure everything is ready when our students are back in their classrooms. Our maintenance and operations staff which includes our grounds crews, painters, electricians and many others are busy working on repairs and renovations, and all of our central office staff is working to prepare for a brand new school year. 


    We are looking forward to forging ahead in our mission to provide an anti-racist and anti-discriminatory learning community that creates safe learning spaces where all students, staff and families are welcomed, included and respected. To that end we will be continuing and expanding the work we have been doing during the past two years with goals focused on student achievement, safe environments, leadership development and accountability. We will be sharing more about this vital work as we launch the next school year and extend an invitation to our fall equity conference that we hope you will consider attending.


    It’s been a great school year, and I couldn’t be more proud of the stellar achievements of our students and the dedication of our entire staff who work tirelessly to do what’s best for our students. I also want to thank all of our families and community members for their continued support and partnership in this work because it takes all of us working together to achieve optimal results. 


    Enjoy your summer!


    See you next month!
