Flynn's Commitment to Students and Families

 

Our Vision:

We strive to provide unconditional love and commitment to each

child.

students.

Our Mission is to Prepare Young People in Three Key Areas:

Passion for Learning and Innovation: 

We develop leaders by encouraging creative, reflective and innovative knowledge-seekers.  

Social Justice:

We work collaboratively to meet the diverse needs of our community

in a just and equitable way. 

Community

We celebrate diversity and encourage acceptance for all people by modeling empathy, respect and non-violence. 

Principal's Message August 2016

Hello Families,

Thanks to the support of teachers, Flynn staff, families and our wonderful students, we had a wonderful kick off to school.

We welcome back our beloved veteran teachers, our office staff, custodians, health, social emotional staff, paraprofessionals, after-school support, and we welcome new teachers. 

 

We have some updates with your children’s teacher. In Kindergarten Spanish, we have Ymilul Bates, a veteran teacher joining us from BVHM. In second grade we have Ms. Adrienne Ferreboued. In third grade, Ms. Megan Alexander will be starting during Ms. Joi’s maternity leave. Congratulations to Ms. Joi on her new daughter. Also in third grade, we have Mrs. Megan McDonnell. In third grade Spanish, Ms. Maggie Hayton, and Ms. Karina Hwang.  In 4th grade English, Mr. Alexander DiCicco, and in 4th grade Spanish, we have Ms. Gabriela López, and in 5th grade English, we have Ms. Angelica Rodríguez. We welcome our Literacy coach, Ms. Rose Lockwood-Holden. Our PE teacher is Mr. Kaleb Sullen, and our new librarian is Ms. Kathy Isbister. New paras are Chelsea Arteaga, Natalie Woodward, and Ryan Haas. We have a new RSP teacher, Ms. Rebecca Chung. We welcome Ms. Cathy Sherman back as a SOAR teacher.

 

Congratulations are in order to staff that have moved to new positions. Ms. K has taken on second grade English, and Ms. Jackie Hernandez is our new Academic Response to Intervention teacher. She will be supporting students who need intervention support to access the curriculum. Mr. Andrew will be a special education content specialist working with Flynn and other sites. Mr. Jake will be a Teacher on Special Assignment in the district. Ms. Law will be a PE teacher. Ms. Shoule is taking a well-deserved sabbatical.

 

For those from the Flynn Community working in other locations, Thank you all of you for the love and dedication you have shown to Flynn students and the community. I am honored to have worked with all of you.

This year will be a wonderful new opportunity. We are starting the year with well-stocked classrooms and teacher training. Our teachers and staff members received PAX training over the summer. PAX is a new way of setting expectations and rewarding good behavior through fun games. This will create safer schools and classrooms. More information about PAX will be provided in the upcoming Wednesday folder. 

We will continue to have district PE and the Playworks program back with us! Thanks to the PTA for supporting us with Playworks, garden, and technology. Playworks is supporting us with recess consulting. We have some new procedures in place for the new school year. During lunch recess we are splitting the recess yards for safety. We are using the fields for different games, sometimes kickball, sometimes other games, but we are mixing it up so that recess can continue to surprise us with fun.

Thank you for your support!
