Happy Friday Serra High!
The photo above was taken on Wednesday. We want to congratulate our first co-ed Tennis Team for winning and becoming League Champions! It was an amazing opportunity to be able to watch them. When under enormous pressure our team remain composed and steadfast in their purpose. I was in awe of them. Tonight I will be at Lacrosse while Elizabeth will be at Basketball.
It's Teacher Appreciation week and if you didn't know there is still time to send an email to you child's teacher and thank them for all they have done this year! On our end we provided them little goodies everyday to say thank you.
We had a great Principal Coffee this morning and a TON of information was given out. Please view the presentation here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1vXniyD-zpVCH2cuSgY8clz1nVWHMwnNS-0gNodHoTxA/edit?usp=sharing
Survey: Serra High Needs Your Help! in conjunction with Walden University
Serra high heard of a survey Walden University is conducting to do a research study on the impact of COVID-19 on working parents. I do believe that many of us fall into the category of "working parents" and I am hoping you'll take 15 minutes to complete my survey. Please share widely with Serra colleagues and beyond!
Impact of COVID 19 on Working Parents <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OnlineLearningWorking> Please check your boosters/Class of's at the bottom as many things are going on that you can participate in that also helps the school!
