Fieldwork kicking in again

Director's notes April 16, 2014

Hi all,

Lottery went well last week; will have approximately 18-20 new families in the fall. If any of you have changes in next year's enrollment, please let me know as soon as you can.

Big week for fieldwork: 7th and 8th grade crews in the Bay Area – one crew is visiting science/genetics labs while the other is working at a food shelter, visiting a school and museum while studying rights and discrimination; 4th/5th grade crews rock climbing at Donner Summit; 1st grade crew visiting a farm in Grass Valley; and this in addition to weekly Library visits and swimming instruction. Many, many thanks to all parents helping make this happen.

Lost and Found is overflowing. We will have a “fashion show” at next Friday's Community Meeting. After that remaining clothes will be donated.

Due to popular demand, PTC is putting in another SELS t-shirt order. Contact Jenna Shropshire directly, prepay is required ($10/shirt). Sizes run a little small. jennifer.shropshire@avil.la Please have orders in to Jenna by Wed of next week, April 23. (You can drop off payment in the Office)

WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY:



On top of all the teaching and learning, I'm struck by the joy in the faces of all the children as they go about their quest for knowledge. Thanks to all the courageous and energetic people who had the vision to make this school a reality. With all the challenges the world faces today and predictions of disaster, these committed teachers/staff, these engaged families, and these beautiful children are a beacon of hope.


SELS embodies everything that I feel is important in my child's education and I am so grateful that she has the opportunity to learn in such an enriching environment. Teaching our children how to think and how to treat others is critical to their future success. I am thankful every single day for all the wonderful staff at SELS.


What an amazing place. It has been everything for my son that I had hoped he could experience in school. Great teacher, stimulating learning environment, and a deeply caring and nurturing place.


I am grateful that my child is encouraged to interpret concepts and think about how they apply to his life, not just memorize and repeat material. I love that SELS asks kids to think about who they are and how they contribute to the community, locally and globally.


I greatly appreciate that SELS is a heart-centered school that teaches ethics and values along with academics. That approach makes SELS a unique and special place.


I appreciate all the teachers and staff and their responsiveness. I also appreciate all the work the staff are doing to help the kids figure out how to fill each other's buckets!


Our son is bubbling over with excitement for learning. This environment is gifting him with life long skills to succeed. We are so thankful for this school.


All the Adults and students challenge each other the THINK!


SELS is amazing in the way they teach topics hands on and allow the children to learn in practical settings. We couldn't be happier seeing our son flourish so much! Thank you.


I am very grateful to the SELS staff for offering my 5th grader their hearts, as well as their knowledge. Better yet, they make learning fun and adventurous! My youngster is THRIVING at your wonderful school!!


We are thankful for many wonderful ideals and principles at SELS, but what really brings those into reality is the caring, hard-working teachers and staff. We wouldn't have thought that someone else would care as much about the whole education of our daughter as much as we do, but there is a whole team of such people at SELS.


I am so thankful that my 5th grade daughter is a member and student of this beautiful community and school. She is receiving a fantastic education with hands on learning, caring, understanding, creative, out of the box thinking and intuitive teachers. She feels included, important, confident and is growing tons in her knowledge and place in this wonderful community. Thank you SELS for being an amazing part of my daughter's education and Life!


I truly appreciate all the staff, students, parents and families at SELS. It is these people that make SELS so wonderful.
This has become a new 'family" for us!


I am so grateful for the amazing staff; they are the most amazing guides. It is an inspiration to watch them help our children learn and grow into thoughtful, independent, productive human beings!
