It is a sincere honor and privilege to welcome you to our academy. We are very excited about beginning our sixth year as a No Excuses University Preparatory Academy. NEU coupled with our focus on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) will prepare our children for college and career readiness. We continue our professional relationship with the California Science Center. This partnership, in its second year, supports the staff in designing inquiry based science and engineering lessons around the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and are integrated throughout the curriculum.
This past year our students won many awards. It was our first year competing in the Southern California Science Olympiad. Our Elementary division received a Bronze medal, and our Middle School division placed fifth in the Elastic Launch Glider event. Additionally, our “Botball” robotics team placed fourth and were awarded the coveted “Judges Choice” award. We look forward to continuing to program Vex and Lego robots, design using 3D printers, Laser Cutters, and code beginning in kinder and first grade.
I am so proud of the work that is taking place at Telesis. The hard work of the staff, the students, parents, and the support of our community has earned us the title of California Gold Ribbon School, and the Title I Academic Achievement Award. Our entire staff is committed in providing an outstanding educational environment that addresses the needs of every child. We also believe that students who learn and develop outstanding character traits will go further and achieve more in life.
Telesis is home to many wonderful families who make education a priority and support our school in so many ways. It is our hope and desire that you will also connect with our community and make it your own.
So I thank you for choosing Telesis as your place of learning and we all look forward to an awesome 2016-2017 school year!
