📸✨ Embracing Family Partnerships ✨📚

As September is in full swing and preparations for Back to School Nights are underway, we are also embarking on something special. 💪💼 This week, school leaders and family engagement champions from across school networks in Oakland, in collaboration with FIA, unveiled an exciting vision for family engagement deeply rooted in our value of Home-School Partnership.

🌟 Leveraging our collective strengths as educators and community leaders, we are on a mission to redefine how families are involved in our students' academic journey and future success by fostering an equal home-school partnership. Areli Porras-Pozos, working alongside FIA, introduced us to the "Creative Hustle" framework inspired by the Stanford d.school guide, Creative Hustle, which emphasizes bridging personal strengths to goals through principles, people, and practices.

💬 Check out snapshots from Thursday's Family Engagement PLC Retreat, where our incredible coordinators and family engagement teams explored these principles and norms to ensure that our key stakeholders are fully aligned and supported on this exciting journey. 🤝📚

🏆 Celebrating Exceptional Achievements and Belonging 🎉

At the end of each month, our students shine in a spotlight of recognition! 🌟 Awards like Student of the Month and Citizenship Awards honor their outstanding contributions.

But recently, we went beyond to honor remarkable individuals within our community! 🔥 Viveca Ycoy-Walton, a dedicated parent leader at Cox Academy and our Dean of Culture at Lazear Charter Academy, received the Rachel Willis-Henry Parent Leader of the Year award. 🏅

And let's not forget Larissa Adam, a true educational powerhouse! 🌟 With a rich history as a teacher, principal, superintendent, and now our very own CEO at Education for Change Oakland Public Schools, she was presented with the Dirk Tillotson Education Advocate of the Year award at a special ceremony. 🙌🏾

But that's not all! 🌟 We're thrilled to announce that two more outstanding members of our community, Lillian Hsu and Christian Martinez, co-founders of Latitude High School, were honored with the prestigious Jefferson Award for their exceptional public service and innovative leadership. 🏆

Why ceremonies, you ask? 🤔 Ceremonies are more than just moments of recognition; they're a reflection of our values, a reminder of our shared mission, and a celebration of belonging. 🤝

Join us in applauding these incredible achievements and stay tuned for more ceremonies that unite and inspire us! 🎊

El Kínder Transicional puede ser confuso de entender como padre.

¿Es Kinder? 🤔
¿es preescolar? 🧐

Para resumir, TK tiende un puente entre el preescolar y Kindergarten. Da a los estudiantes el regalo de tiempo que le ayudará a construir una base sólida para el éxito escolar futuro.

Tanto es así que para el año escolar 25/26 todos los niños de 4 años en el estado de California calificarán para inscribirse en un programa de Kínder Transicional (TK).

¡DM "4 años de edad" para aprender si su niño/a califica este año escolar en el programa de TK en EFC! 👩‍👩‍👧👨‍👩‍👧👩‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👨‍👧‍👧👨‍👨‍👦‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Here are some helpful guidelines we follow and encourage you to use if you wish to speak to your children further.

Flexible seating = happy reading!

Flexible seating is implemented across many classrooms in EFC. It creates an environment of belonging and connection.

Through flexible seating students can feel empowered by having choice and control over their environment. Many flexible seating options stimulate students' sense of touch. This type of stimulation can help children focus and process information.

Choice, belonging, comfort, and flexibility. A comfortable student is a focused, and productive student.
