Del Mar News                     April 4, 2018 
                                                                         
 
Dear Del Mar Community,
 
Last week we were honored to host our area's elected Congressman, Jared Huffman. Many of our 8th grade students directly shared the legislation they had written during trimester 2 in their history class. Mr. Huffman made himself available to hear more directly from our students. I was incredibly proud of our students; they were thoughtful and articulate in asking challenging questions of him.
 
Open House Invite:  Del Mar Open House is Thursday, April 19th from 6:30-8:00.  I look forward to seeing you and celebrating your students' work.
 
Reminder: Please join me tomorrow morning from 8:30-9:30 for a Principal's chat in our library. I will be reviewing our staff's work around grading practices and want to hear from parents about our reports cards and student led conferences.
 
I hope you all enjoy your time off during Spring break!
 
Sincerely,
Brian Lynch
