“It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love is put in the giving.”
― Mother Teresa
With bells ringing and banners waving, our students and school staff proudly marched their way to the local post office where our seniors mailed their college personal statements, marking a major milestone in their college prep process. The College March is an inspiring symbol of the idea that every student, regardless of background or circumstance, can be prepared to thrive at a high-quality institution of higher learning. It is a powerful tradition at our charter school that helps establish a college bound culture. The march also works to motivate our freshmen, sophomores and juniors by showing them where we expect them to be in a few years with hard work and dedication.
Celebrating Our Scholars: Academic Achievement Awards
We celebrate our scholars who demonstrated academic excellence at end of first academic quarter. The practice of student recognition and honoring students for outstanding achievement and have risen to high academic expectations has been an ongoing tradition at our charter school.
Renaissance Music Scholars Christmas Concert
Our Renaissance Music Scholars performed songs while our students celebrated the season with delicious desserts that were shared by their peers.
Celebrating a Spirit of Gratitude
The Parent Advisory Council celebrate the season with a beautiful Christmas luncheon for our scholars. It is an annual tradition at our charter school to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with a Gratitude Luncheon with their peers. Our parents donate the food and scholars bring in a dish or dessert to share with their classmates. This season of celebration allows our scholars to reflect on what they are thankful for and the achievements they have made.
At the Staff luncheon, students presented on Christmas traditions in different Spanish speaking countries. At the end of the presentation, the staff were invited to try some traditional holiday foods prepared by the student.
