Newsletter for November 2019
Parents, Guardians, and General Abbott Community,
Here are some highlights for this November!
Our Associated Student Body (ASB) campaigning is underway with elections taking place the first week of November! Students are hanging posters, “meet and greeting” with constituents, making a speech, which will be aired in History classes throughout the week. Voting takes place on Friday 11/8.
Nightmare on Puberty Street!
Kaiser Permanente’s educational play was an “awkwardly hilarious” take on issues that all students experience trying to deal with their body’s changes and social/family pressures that all teenagers go through. Humorous situations were balanced with serious topics that students were able to relate to. The incredibly talented actors rapped, danced, and broke down these topics in an entertaining way.
We had a very successful Halloween dance on 10/31, in which kids (and teachers) were dressed in some pretty creative costumes! Ms. Bollbach and her leadership students did a great decorating, and Mr. Lau had a great selection of music to keep the kids up and dancing around!
With the help of our generous PTA, Ms. Marconi was able to organize our new student store! The official opening is November 6th, and students can finally cash in their hard earned “Falcon tickets” for Falcon wear, school supplies, and lunch/events with their favorite teachers.
