*Create an engaging and motivational classroom learning environment
 
*Treat all scholars, parents and colleagues with respect

School Expectations
At Del Mar Elementary School, we have high expectations for each one of our scholars. We unwaveringly believe that if students work hard and to their potential, they can become academically successful. It is our commitment to provide our scholars with everything necessary, academically and socially, to become successful in middle school, high school and, ultimately, college, if that is their choice. This commitment demands a strong partnership with parents. The teachers and staff members of Del Mar will do everything possible to ensure our scholars will be successful. For this challenge, we also need the full and dedicated support of our school families.

Dear Del Mar Families!!!  
The above quotes were in last year’s welcome back letter……..Little did I know how applicable these quotes would be as we live  through a new normal.    The words seem to be prophetic, don’t they?  However, the message remains the same.  A message of hope, joy to be found in every moment, and a way to heal.
Welcome to the new school year.  We will be starting school this year with “Distance Learning”.  This means that your scholar will be learning from home through a variety of offerings. Following is a brief list of supports that we will be providing you with:
 
●       Each student will have receive a Chromebook in order to engage in online teaching and learning
●       Each student will receive daily whole class instruction through Zoom Meetings, Google Classroom, and
         SeeSaw
●       Each student will receive instruction as a part of a small group of students each day
●       Small group instruction will be tailored to meet the learning needs of your child
●       Morning Announcements, that teach about inspiration and connectedness, will be provided daily
 
I hope that your family is managing successfully during these unprecedented times!  I understand that these days continue to have multiple challenges and hurdles.  Please know that we are your extended family and are here to support you in many ways.  We continue to believe that the power and greatness of this place we call school is all about hope, developing personal strength, and believing that there are endless possibilities for us to bring good to our community. 
 
Here at Del Mar, we know that we can  impact the future of all of our scholars.  We will seek to daily empower them to understand that they can always make a positive impact, when they are home and when they someday return to school physically.  “We” will continue to focus on the social-emotional wellness of all of our students.  “We” will continue to lead with love.   “We”will  bring the light of critical thinking to every lesson as we seek to stamp out ignorance. “We” will seek to be a daily model of social justice and will build upon our culture of a  “Growth Mindset”.
 
We are still this amazing place we call school! Although everything looks and feels different, the Del Mar Teaching Community holds an unwavering commitment to support your scholars through every challenge. I am both humbled and proud to be the principal of Del Mar Elementary School. Through careful planning, dedicated  and creative collaboration, the Del Mar staff and community has created a strong distance learning education plan for your children! Please know that I always welcome and benefit from both your involvement and feedback! At the bottom of this letter are the details for accessing your child’s Chromebook and learning materials for the start of the school year.
 
Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Marilyn Rockey, Principal

Queridas familias de Del Mar !!!
Las citas anteriores estaban en la carta de bienvenida del año pasado ...... Poco sabía cómo serían aplicables estas citas a medida que vivimos una nueva normalidad. Las palabras parecen ser proféticas, ¿no? Sin embargo, el mensaje sigue siendo el mismo. Un mensaje de esperanza, alegría en cada momento y una forma de sanar.
Bienvenido al nuevo año escolar. Comenzaremos la escuela este año con "Aprendizaje a distancia". Esto significa que su estudiante aprenderá desde su hogar a través de una variedad de ofertas. A continuación se incluye una breve lista de apoyos que le brindaremos:
 
● Cada estudiante habrá recibido un Chromebook para participar en la enseñanza y el aprendizaje en línea.
● Cada estudiante recibirá instrucción diaria de toda la clase a través de Zoom Meetings, Google Classroom y
   SeeSaw
● Cada estudiante recibirá instrucción como parte de un pequeño grupo de estudiantes cada día.
● La instrucción en grupos pequeños se adaptará para satisfacer las necesidades de aprendizaje de su hijo
● Anuncios diarios, que enseñan sobre la inspiración y la conexión, se proporcionarán diariamente.
 
¡Espero que su familia se maneje con éxito durante estos tiempos sin precedentes! Entiendo que estos días continúan teniendo múltiples desafíos y obstáculos. Sepa que somos su familia extendida y estamos aquí para apoyarlo de muchas maneras. Continuamos creyendo que el poder y la grandeza de este lugar que llamamos escuela se trata de la esperanza, el desarrollo de la fortaleza personal y la creencia de que hay infinitas posibilidades para que podamos traer el bien a nuestra comunidad.
 
Aquí en Del Mar, sabemos que podemos impactar el futuro de todos nuestros académicos. Intentaremos capacitarlos diariamente para que comprendan que siempre pueden tener un impacto positivo, cuando están en casa y cuando algún día regresan físicamente a la escuela. "Nosotros" continuaremos enfocándonos en el bienestar social y emocional de todos nuestros estudiantes. "Nosotros" continuaremos liderando con amor. "Nosotros" llevaremos la luz del pensamiento crítico a cada lección mientras buscamos acabar con la ignorancia. "Nosotros" buscaremos ser un modelo diario de justicia social y construiremos sobre nuestra cultura de una "mentalidad de crecimiento".
 
¡Todavía somos este lugar increíble al que llamamos escuela! Aunque todo se ve y se siente diferente, la Comunidad Docente de Del Mar tiene un compromiso inquebrantable de apoyar a sus estudiantes en cada desafío. Estoy humilde y orgulloso de ser el director de la Escuela Primaria Del Mar. ¡Mediante una planificación cuidadosa, una colaboración dedicada y creativa, el personal y la comunidad de Del Mar han creado un sólido plan de educación a distancia para sus hijos! ¡Tenga en cuenta que siempre agradezco y me beneficio tanto su participación como sus comentarios! Al final de esta carta se encuentran los detalles para acceder al Chromebook de su hijo y a los materiales de aprendizaje para el comienzo del año escolar.
