Hello Navajo Buffalos,
I hope this finds you doing well and that you are enjoying the “Fall” feeling in the air.
Fall Festival: The Navajo Fall Festival was a huge success again this school year! I want to thank all of our wonderful PTO for all of their hard work, planning and efforts to help ensure such a great evening for our community.
STEM Camp: Navajo 5th grade students had an excellent week at Tonto Creek STEM camp last week. Students had an excellent educational experience at camp and we hope to continue this as a 5th grade tradition for years to come.
Family Read Day: Did you know that the last Friday of every month, we invite all family members to come in and read with their children for the first 30 minutes of the school day? At Navajo, we value the importance of reading every day and we enjoy having families on campus to help show the importance of this very important lifelong skill. Please mark your calendars for the next family read day on November 22nd. We hope to see you there. Survey: At Navajo, we like to practice our “Growth Mindset” on a daily basis and are always striving to get better. In order to do so, we are asking parents to please take the survey to help give our site and the district feedback: click here
STEAM Accredited: At Navajo we are a STEAM focus school and we are trying to further our STEAM focus on a daily basis. We are very excited that the SUSD governing board has approved for our school to start a 3-year professional development plan through Discovery Education to further that STEAM focus! At the conclusion of the 3 years, our school will become a STEAM accredited school by Advanced ED. We are very grateful for this opportunity and are very excited to get started. If you are interested in learning about what this process entails, we invite you to our Leadership Retreat Event next week. Please see the below link for more details and to sign-up. click here
Enrollment: Can you believe that enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year starts this Friday, November 1st? Please help spread the word about all of the amazing things occurring at our school to any potential new families. We do weekly tours of our campus and our first formal “5-Hive” kinder enrollment event will be on Wednesday, November 13th at 1:00.
Fall Family Cookout: Save the date for our annual Fall Cookout on Tuesday, November 26th. The cookout will be during your child’s regular scheduled lunchtime. We hope to see you all there.
