A Message from our Principal

Dear Families,

Attendance continues to be of the utmost importance. We are working diligently to help your child master their current grade level skills as well as prepare them for the upcoming year. Please ensure that your child is here every day ready and on time. Every minute counts! SC recognizes the importance of developing strong character within our students. Our staff implements the Character Counts Program and Making Good Choices. The Six Pillars of Character are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Character development of a child is a team effort. We need family and community support in embracing these values and common language as essentials to living a good life. We encourage you to talk to your children about making good choices and playing their part in making San Cayetano a great place to be! February is the month for Caring; please help encourage our students to: be kind. Be compassionate and show they care. Express gratitude. Forgive others. Help people in need. We appreciate your efforts!

Your Partner in Lifelong Learning,

Mimi Renteria

A Message from our Assistant Principal

Dear Families,

One of the most valuable life skills a student can learn is taking the responsibility of arriving at school every day on time. As parents and adults in the workforce, we know the importance of punctuality. As parents/guardians, we are our children’s first and most influential models of this critical life skill that will help our children become more successful adults. Let’s teach our children to always be on time starting now! The whole tone of a child's school day is set in the first part of the day. This is the time when we announce important school news, teachers define the plans/objectives for the day, and instruction begins. Please help support your children in learning habits that will help them be successful at school and throughout life.

Please be aware that beginning on October 1 any student who has three or more tardies for the month will not be eligible for Cheetah of the month or fine dining with the principal.

Thank you,

Dominic Armijo
Assistant to the Principal
