  • A Message from Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Lynch


    February 6, 2019 

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    Kindness and Connectedness Activities:
    Our elementary students participated in the Great Kindness Challenge last week. Students engaged in many acts of kindness ranging from good deeds to writing thank you notes. I was very touched to receive thank you notes and posters from Mr. Davis’s 4th grade students! Families can continue to participate in kindness activities at home.
    Del Mar 6th graders learned how to ensure all students feel connected to school and each other through Start with Hello, a program provided by Sandy Hook Promise. Students learned the signs of isolation and strategies to include those who may feel left out.
    This important letter to parents has been shared with RUSD by Tehniat Cheema, a Novato School District principal. The thoughts and recommendations reflected in this letter are equally beneficial to families in our community.
    Tools to Address Words and Actions That Discriminate:
    I will always be grateful that my daughter was afforded the opportunity of attending richly diverse schools growing up. This enabled her to gain knowledge and an appreciation for people of different cultures and races. Even though she had this experience, I would always seek out books that provided her a larger view of the world than what she saw in her school and our neighborhood. Books that helped her to better understand herself, her classmates and children around the world greatly contributed to her development of empathy, fairness, and a strong respect and value for differences. 
    This week’s resource is an extensive list of recommended books that help teach children about the rich cultures that can be found in their community around the world.
    Kind regards,
    Nancy Lynch, Ed.D.
