It is a real pleasure to work for the Adelante Charter School. Adelante students, teachers, staff and families are dedicated to pursuing excellence in two languages. In addition to languages interculturality is present and makes this community established as unique in Santa Barbara County.

Bilingual development is an individual advantage, for the family, the community and the whole United States. Cognitive development is a great advantage for students who are in the process of maintaining their bilingualism and for others who are developing a second language.

Today, knowing two languages is better than having one language. With globalization every resource of the human is a tangible value and the development of two or more languages and culture is an unequaled process.

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to participate in this educational project of excellence in two languages.

In 2017, our resolutions must be focused on continuing to support the academic achievement of your sons and daughters. Our teachers at Adelante Charter School play a very important role as do the different people in the office and those who support school care.  It is a real pleasure to serve as an academic leader and observe how we are progressing in our school.

I would like to inform you that my office is open to listen to you and to learn about your ideas on how to continue to support this First-World Educational Program: Learning in two languages.

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

On your marks, get set, Adelante!

Dear Adelante families, it’s the start of the new school year and we are ready to welcome your children. A new school year where students will be thought that learning is part of life.

I invite you to continue supporting the development of your sons and daughters since every human being can learn.

Some points to keep in mind:

  1. Punctuality. During the last school year we realized that there is a number of families who arrive late to school with their sons and daughters. Please be considerate of your child’s class because every student who arrives late is an interruption to the fluency of the class and your son and daughter also loses valuable minutes when they arrive late.
  2. School uniform. You, as parents, have the responsibility of sending your sons and daughters in school uniform. The teachers, staff, including the office, are not uniform police officers, if they show up without a uniform then I will personally ask them to please be responsible.. Please be aware of the commitment you have with the school and send your children in school uniform.
  3. Traffic. Please remember that the sidewalk that is painted white is a loading zone only for dropping off your children and not for parking. We will be receiving your children at the door of your car to facilitate the entry and exit of cars. The streets were not designed for so much traffic so being cautious when driving is very important.
