At this time of year I like to stop and reflect on our Neil Armstrong Family. We are truly thankful for our parent support at home and in school as well as our dedicated staff who care about and support our kids academically and socially.
Thank you for your GENEROUS donations to our Neil Armstrong Toy drive. It is overwhelming to see students, staff and parents bring in armfuls of toys all week. It will make such a difference to children at our sister school in Pittsburg.
We have such a strong community of volunteers who spend a great deal of their time here at school working with students, teaching art lessons, providing reading intervention, working on the grounds, hanging pictures, stuffing Tuesday Folders and being here when we need them. Our students thrive because they have support at home and at school.
We have an amazing group of parents in our Academic Booster Eagle Fund. I hope you can find some time to join us at our dinner on February 24TH, 6:00 pm at the San Ramon Community Center. Perhaps you can stop by one of our booster meetings or a PTA meeting. The meetings are filled with friendly people who only there to support our kids, teachers, and parent community. Our PTA is one of the hardest working groups I have ever come across and they do it with a smile. We look forward to continuing the school year with all our technology in place raised courtesy of our Academic Boosters because of their efforts our students will engage in 21st Century learning.
Our staff members continue to attend workshops about the standards and their implementation. We will be focusing on critical thinking and how students can present their knowledge in creative and engaging ways. This is an exciting time in education.
Neil Armstrong is committed to children and their academic and social wellbeing. We hold high expectations in our teaching and learning, placing high importance on student engagement though creativity, curiosity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration. Character development plays a key role in our student’s education. We focus on respect, empathy, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness and citizenship.
