Pittman School Celebrates a Festival of Honor
Staff and families at Pittman Charter Elementary School celebrated their fifth Annual Festival of Honor last week with dozens of beautifully created “ofrendas” honoring those who have died or special people or ideas.
The event is held every year to serve as a cross cultural bridge on which new ideas and cultural traditions meet to share experiences and honor ancestral roots. Students created special projects under director of Pittman’s art teacher, Allison Savage.
In addition, the Cesar Chavez High School Mariachis performed and neighboring Health Careers Academy joined in the festivities. Take a look at some of the work on display!
Parents Become Parenting Partners
Congratulations to a dozen Pittman Elementary School parents who have graduated from the Parenting Partners Program! The parents, nearly all Spanish-speaking only mothers, participated in a special ceremony last week that fostered bonding among the parents and school leaders. Principal Adrienne Machado conducted the ceremony, in which parents said they had learned better basic parenting practices as well as how to better help their children succeed in school. Parenting Partners is offered in most SUSD elementary schools. Great work Pittman School!
