Sherman Oaks Parents/Guardians,

Together with our teachers, staff and Assistant Principal, Pablo Viramontes, I want to welcome our students and school community back to Sherman Oaks.  I hope all of our families had a fun summer where great experiences were had and lasting memories made.  Sherman Oaks is ready to welcome our students back to engage in meaningful learning experiences and continue to move toward reaching our goal of becoming bilingual and biliterate.  Our enthusiastic and committed teachers have been working during the summer in planning sessions, attending professional development, and getting our classrooms ready.  I am confident that together we will have a productive and enriching 2018 – 2019 school year!

As newer members to the Sherman Oaks community, Mr. Viramontes and I have been reviewing information, listening to feedback and learning of the great things our school has to offer.  It is evident to us that the culture of the school is centered around our students’ well-being and we value that.  Our work will continue to focus on the development of Professional Learning Communities (PLC) for our teachers, strengthening of our dual immersion program, and ensuring that all of our students learn our essential standards.  Certainly, a safe and supportive school environment, as well as providing social-emotional support, is at the core of our work.

Our school will be stronger with the support of its community.  We invite you to take advantage of the opportunities to support our students’ learning and experiences.  I look forward to meeting you and working with you this academic year. 

Please contact our office if you have any questions or need additional information.

Sincerely,

Marco A. Chavez,

Principal
