SEL/CC Survey/Encuesta

Click here for survey: 




Message from Principal Mendoza

Dear parents,


We sent out SEL/CC (Social Emotional Learning/Culture Climate) survey last month. As we had several surveys in the past school year, some families were under impression that they had already completed the SEL/CC survey. We have in total of 3 surveys this school year and the SEL/CC survey is the final and most important one! Please fill out a survey per child. The responses received from this survey will help the SFUSD to determine how to manage resources to help individual schools. So hurry up and go to https://goo.gl/Q5rZht  to help SFUSD to assist us. We are extending the deadline to May 10th so please take 10 minutes to fill out the survey and make sure you click send.   At this point your child and your child’s teacher can win a prize.   Please complete the form that you can find in the Wednesday envelopes and return it to school.


Del Escritorio de Nuestro Director, el Sr. Mendoza

Estimados padres de familia,

El mes pasado enviamos la encuesta SEL/CC (sobre el aprendizaje emocional/ Cultura y Ambiente) Algunas personas creen que ya contestaron esta encuesta y en realidad no ha sido así, lo que pasa es que anteriormente enviamos otras encuestas, en total hemos enviado 3 encuestas diferentes y esta encuesta (SEL/CC )!es la última y más importante! Por favor conteste una por cada estudiante. Las respuestas de esta encuesta ayudaran al SFUSD  a decidir de qué manera  distribuir sus recursos para apoyar a cada una de las escuelas.  Vaya lo antes posible a este link https://goo.gl/Q5rZht  para que ayude al SFUSD a que nos del apoyo adecuado. Hemos extendido la fecha limite al 10 de mayo, por favor dedica 10 minutos de tu tiempo para contestar esta encuesta y asegúrate de hacer clic en enviar. Habiendo hecho esto tu hijo y el maestro de tu hijo pueden ganar premios para esto llena una forma que encontraras en el sobre de los miércoles y regrésala a la escuela.
