Del Mar Elementary School "A Cell Phone Free Zone"!
Due to the distraction from learning, as well as cyber bullying that cell phones cause, Del Mar Scholars are expected to NOT have or use cell phones during school hours. The school office can provide students with access to a phone. If a student has a cell phone with them it will be taken to the office and will remain there until the child's parents pick it up.

“Excellence is never an accident.  It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives-choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”………..Aristotle

Dear Del Mar Families!!!

Welcome!!! I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and the journey that we will embark upon together!Together, we will continue to develop a culture of Growth Mindset.  Growth Mindset is an attitude towards learning.  We believe that every student can be successful given the tools to develop confidence in their efforts. New research shows that the brain is really like a muscle!!  When you lift things that are heavy, and practice doing this, your muscles begin to develop more and grow.   Your brain does the same thing!  It changes and becomes stronger as you use it!!  In fact, scientists can now show through video and ultra-sound that the brain actually grows as you learn new things!  

Let’s think about how babies grow and develop.  From the day that they are born, they are hearing a very busy world around them! They are trying, with their brains, to make sense of all the noise and language.  Eventually they figure out the language of their parents.  They do this through the practice of listening, observing, and thinking.  Their brains begin to change and grow as they practice learning.   This is why we focus on and praise effort!  We do not think that babies are of low intelligence because they cannot talk.  We think that they just cannot talk YET!  It is the same with all students.

As a school we will:   

  • Provide your scholar with a rigorous and engaging learning experience.

  • Provide any needed additional support that your scholar needs to be successful.

  • Ensure that your scholar is positively connected to Del Mar.

  • Teach your scholar how to learn, give their greatest efforts, and grow their intelligence.

To make this year academically successful, parents and guardians need to:

  • Stay informed through our website and school/classroom newsletters.

  • Call or email with any concerns or questions.

  • Get involved by participating in school activities.

  • Volunteer and become a part of the Del Mar Home and School Club.                                                                                                                                (Details regarding this are in the attached letter!!!!!)

Guarantees of academic success are built upon your scholar:

  • Being at school every day, on time, with a healthy breakfast in their bellies.  Consistent practice over time is how people learn best.

  • Having an early bedtime.

  • Giving 100% of positive energy and effort every day!  Smart is not something you are-it is something you become through effort.

  • Trying their hardest when they experience challenges.

  • Believing that they have the capacity to do great things!

I am both humbled and proud to be the principal of Del Mar Elementary School. Through careful planning, dedicated  and creative collaboration, and an unwavering commitment to support our scholars through every challenge, the Del Mar staff and community has created a learning environment in which our scholars thrive!   

Please know that I always welcome and benefit from both your involvement and feedback!

Sincerely,

"La excelencia nunca es un accidente. Siempre es el resultado de la intención alta, el esfuerzo sincero y la ejecución inteligente; Representa la sabia elección de muchas alternativas: la elección, no la casualidad, determina tu destino. "......... ..Aristóteles

Estimadas familias de Del Mar,

¡¡¡Bienvenido!!! ¡Estoy deseando que llegue el próximo año escolar y el viaje que emprenderemos juntos!

Juntos, continuaremos desarrollando una cultura de mentalidad de crecimiento. La mentalidad de crecimiento es una actitud hacia el aprendizaje. Creemos que cada estudiante puede tener éxito dado las herramientas para desarrollar la confianza en sus esfuerzos. Nueva investigación muestra que el cerebro es realmente como un músculo! Cuando levanta cosas pesadas y practica haciendo esto, sus músculos comienzan a desarrollarse más y crecen. ¡Tu cerebro hace lo mismo! ¡Cambia y se hace más fuerte mientras que usted lo utiliza !! De hecho, los científicos ahora pueden mostrar a través de video y ultra-sonido que el cerebro realmente crece a medida que aprenden cosas nuevas!

Pensemos en cómo crecen y se desarrollan los bebés. ¡Desde el día en que nacen, están escuchando un mundo muy ocupado a su alrededor! Ellos están intentando, con sus cerebros, dar sentido a todo el ruido y el lenguaje. Eventualmente, se dan cuenta del lenguaje de sus padres. Lo hacen mediante la práctica de escuchar, observar y pensar. Sus cerebros empiezan a cambiar y crecer a medida que practican el aprendizaje.

Esta es la razón por la que nos centramos en el esfuerzo y la alabanza! No pensamos que los bebés son de baja inteligencia porque no pueden hablar. ¡Pensamos que no pueden hablar TODAVÍA! Es lo mismo con todos los estudiantes.

Como escuela vamos a:

  • Proporcione a su erudito una experiencia de aprendizaje rigurosa y atractiva.

  • Proporcione cualquier apoyo adicional necesario que su becario necesite para tener éxito.

  • Asegúrese de que su becario está conectado positivamente con Del Mar.

  • Enseñe a su erudito cómo aprender, dar sus mayores esfuerzos, y hacer crecer su inteligencia.

Para que este año tenga éxito académico, los padres y tutores deben:

  • Manténgase informado a través de nuestro sitio web y los boletines de la escuela / salón de clases.

  • Llame o envíe un correo electrónico con cualquier inquietud o pregunta.

  • Participa participando en las actividades escolares.

  • Voluntarios y se convierten en una parte del club del hogar y de la escuela de Del Mar. (Detalles sobre esto están en la carta adjunta !!!!!)

Las garantías de éxito académico se basan en su becario:

  • Estar en la escuela todos los días, a tiempo, con un desayuno saludable en sus vientres. La práctica consistente en el tiempo es cómo la gente aprende mejor.

  • Tener una temprana hora de acostarse.

  • ¡Dando el 100% de la energía y del esfuerzo positivos cada día! Inteligente no es algo que eres, es algo que te conviertes en el esfuerzo.

  • Intentando su más duro cuando experimentan desafíos.

  • Creyendo que tienen la capacidad de hacer grandes cosas!

Estoy muy orgullosa de ser la directora de la Escuela Primaria Del Mar. A través de una cuidadosa planificación, colaboración dedicada y creativa, y un compromiso inquebrantable para apoyar a nuestros eruditos a través de cada desafío, el personal y la comunidad de Del Mar ha creado un ambiente de aprendizaje en el que nuestros eruditos prosperan!

¡Por favor, sepa que siempre me da la bienvenida y me beneficio tanto de su participación como de sus comentarios!

Atentamente, Marilyn Rockey, Directora
