Sonya CardenasDear Parents,
I would like to welcome you to Carvajal Early Childhood Education Center.  We are starting our 9th year as a Head Start Center.  This is my 7th year as the principal of this wonderful school.  We have 25 amazing teachers with a wealth of experience and 40 paraprofessionals who support the work of educating and keeping the children safe and happy.

We are committed to providing an exciting learning experiences for your child.  The teacher and staff are trained extensively to work with young learners.  Learning is fun at Carvajal.  Everyday is unique and special.   We have several enrichment activities throughout the year, i.e. Health Fairs, Math and Literacy Nights, Grandparents’ Dance, plays, science fairs, etc.     I am proud to say that Carvajal has an amazing parent involvement program.  Parents are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer at school.    

This year we will start our Dual Language program in eight classrooms.  Dual Language Education, which has over 30 years of research, demonstrates long term success.  By middle school, the native Spanish and Engish speakers will be fluent speakers, readers and writers in both languages.  We are the model for this program in an ECE setting; this is an exciting endeavor for Carvajal!

Our Carvajal Vision Statement states, “Through purpose, passion and persistence, we at Carvajal will instill a love of learning and high achievement for all stakeholders.”  These words are meant to inspire our work as educators.

We will have a “Meet the Teacher” on Friday, August 11th from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.  This would be an excellent time for your child to meet his teacher and see the classroom.  Teachers will share drop off and pick-up information at this time.   The first day of school is Monday, August 14, 2017.  The doors open at 7:00 a.m. and the tardy bell rings at 7:30 a.m.  

The 2017-18 school year is going to be awesome!
