Director's Update - Tony Oddo

Dear Choices Family:

The school year is now one-half over, and from the indications, I have seen and heard, so far, so good! Just think, seniors – only five months until graduation!

First-semester report cards will be mailed the 3rd week of February. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns for teachers or staff, any one of us can be reached by email or voicemail. Check the lists at
http://choicescharter.org/who-we-are/our-staff/.

Spring semester will bring two week-long breaks:
President’s Week – February 19 – 23
Spring Break – March 26 – 30

Also, spring will bring back state-mandated testing. Remember, as a small school, every student counts! As we explained during your orientation meetings, all students are expected to participate in state testing. Just one or two students can make a big difference!

As a Personalized Learning Public Charter School, we want to make your experience a good one. If you have any questions or concern, please call or email me to discuss it.

Lastly – we love our families! Please make sure your friends and neighbors know about Choices Charter School!

Sincerely


Tony Oddo, Director

Choices Charter School is planning a Minute-to-Win-It event on March 7 from 11:30 to 12:30 in the MP room. Students can compete with friends and Choices staff to beat the clock in ten challenges that will be fun for participants of all ages and abilities. This will be an enjoyable change of pace for everyone and a chance to make new friends and perhaps win some prizes! This free event will be open to everyone, but please sign up in advance with Mrs. Gollos in the computer lab.

The Sacramento Speaker Series provides students the opportunity to hear motivational lectures from some of today’s most powerful speakers. Through the Share the Vision outreach program our school is provided with the opportunity to attend these events free of charge. Upcoming speakers are T. V. personality George Takei Television; Author Doris Kearns Goodwin; Astronaut Captain Scott Kelly;  Lawyer and Author Bryan Stevenson; Former Prime Minister  of Israeli Ehud Barak and Journalist Chris Wallace.

Here are some thoughts that were given by Choices staff in regards to the speaker series…

Mrs. Moore encourages students to attend the series because of the opportunity to “explore different perspectives and find inspiration through their lectures.” She hopes that these opportunities enable students to “expand their minds and learn something new.”

Ms. Antos encourages students to attend these events so that they can be “exposed to new topics and do something new.”

The next Speaker Series is with Bryan Stevenson on Feb. 21st.  We hope to see you there! If you’re interested in attending, please contact Mrs. Moore in Room 10.
