Congratulations to: Staff of the Month - Addy Pasol and Faculty of the Month - Marites Galamgam

Saber Community,

As we continue to push forward, it is important to initially ground ourselves in data so we firmly know where our strength and growth areas are. After careful analysis of our assessment data, it has been determined that our school-wide focus will be on speaking and listening with precision and fluency. We would like all of our stakeholders to help support and develop this very critical skill that is essential in the ongoing quest to become college and career ready.

To be able to speak and listen with precision and fluency, one must be fully prepared to thoughtfully and eloquently convey a message -- which means determining what information is critical, developing a coherent message, and being bold enough to ask essential questions of yourself and others. This is the only way to ensure that every aspect is covered. Precision often is the only difference that distinguishes good from great and we want our students to clearly exhibit that next level of cognition that sets them apart from the rest.

So please join us as we push our students, your children, the next generation Sabers to be critical thinkers and analyzers. I am confident that it is time and effort well spent and will result in young adults we all can be proud of.

Jon Henry Lee
Principal

Cars Parking Along The Side of North Road Must Be Parallel Parked

1. HPD will begin next week ticketing ALL PEOPLE WHO DO NOT PARALLEL PARK their cars along the side of North Road. All the signs along the road indicate that vehicles are required to parallel park. Currently everyone parks in a 45 degree angle which is ILLEGAL.

2. HPD informed me that the 45 degree parking format prevents pedestrians, and people with disabilities who use a cart, from safely traversing along the side of the road. Right now they are forced to go on the road which becomes a safety consideration.

3. HPD - Do not park in front of the double gate that is across A building. You will be towed at owner's expense.
