Principal Dunn Update. January 3, 2021
Posted on 01/03/2021
2021, a New Year for CCE!
My wish is that this Principal Update finds you and your family healthy and safe! There is a sense of hopeful optimism and prospect associated with this year, anticipating that 2021 will grant us a positive invitation for a safe journey towards recovery and renewal.

And, while our school community has maintained admirable resilience and support this past year, our country and state are still very much weathering a surge in Covid-19 cases. So, I’d like to recognize again many of our parents and staff members who are, and know, the courageous professionals and community partners in healthcare, public first responders and the essential workers who are critical to maintaining the wellbeing and safe infrastructures for us right now. As of January 2, 2021, the State of California has extended the Stay Home Order for the Greater Sacramento Region.

In these weeks ahead, let’s do our best to keep ourselves, our loved ones and neighbors safe. I am eager to reconnect with you, our teachers and students very soon. I’d also like to pass on a fun, creative Writing Exercise to you, your families, friends or networks. I used to do this activity as a teacher during our first day of school in the new year: Write six words (or a six-word sentence) that describes your hope for 2021. Give it a try, it will warm hearts :)
