A Message from the Principal

  • cassie Dear Apollo Families:
    It is with great enthusiasm that I officially welcome you, your student(s) and family to the 2020-2021 school year at Apollo school.

    There's no question that this year feels very different, with our students and families connecting remotely, but whether they are in our classrooms - or learning from home - you will find a sense of family unparalleled in other elementary schools. Our diversity makes us strong, and it’s that diversity that makes Apollo such a special place to be.

    Please know that it takes much more than just our staff to enable success for our students; it takes a partnership between school and home. We encourage you to get involved in any and every way that you can this year.

    Don’t hesitate to contact me as the year progresses. It’s going to be an amazing year at Apollo!
    Your Partner in Education,

    Cassandra Schwartz

    Estimadas familias de Apolo,

    Es con gran entusiasmo que oficialmente les doy la bienvenida, a su estudiante(s) y a su familia para el año escolar 2020-2021 en la escuela Apolo.

    No hay duda de que este año se siente muy diferente, con nuestros estudiantes y familias que se conectan de forma remota, pero ya sea en nuestras aulas - o aprendiendo desde casa - usted encontrara una sensación de familia incomparable a otras escuelas primarias. Nuestra diversidad nos hace fuertes, y es esa misma diversidad que hace Apolo un lugar tan especial.

    Por favor, sepa que se necesita mucho más que nuestro personal para posibilitar el éxito de nuestros estudiantes; se necesita una colaboración entre la escuela y el hogar. Les animamos a participar en cualesquiera y en todos los sentidos posibles este año escolar.

    No dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo a lo largo del año. Va a ser un año increíble en Apolo!

    Su socio en la Educación,

    Cassandra Schwartz
