Message from Ms. Arias Principal
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited to welcome all of our students
back and look forward to another successful year.
I want to reiterate our commitment to academic excellence, innovative practices,
school safety and inclusive excellence. We are proud of our achievements and grateful
for all your support.
Join me in welcoming our new Assistant Principal, Ms. Cheena Burt to Nightingale. Ms.
Burt comes to us from Schoop Elementary, and is very excited to join our family.
I also want to welcome the following staff members to Nightingale:
Mrs. Genesis Romo-DL Teacher
Ms. Maja Bulk-4th Grade Teacher
Ms. Catherine Caetano-4th Grade Teacher
Ms. Amanda Leihman-5th Grade Math Teacher

As you know coming to school on time each and every day is essential for every student.
Towards this end, we are providing incentives for attendance every single month. We
will be giving raffle tickets to students with more than 967° attendance each month. If
the student is in school every day for the month they will receive 3 raffle tickets. If
they have 1 absence for the month they will receive 2 raffle tickets and if they have 2
absences per month they will receive 1 raffle ticket. If any student is absent more than
2 days in any given month they will not be eligible for the raffle drawing for that month
but we encourage them to try again next month.
There are also additional prizes, incentives and events that will be occurring throughout
the school year. Only students who achieve 967° attendance will be eligible for these
Please consider taking part in our Parent Mentor Program. This program is
instrumental to our student success. If interested please reach out to Mrs. Figueroa
Open House will take place on September 10th. Flyers will be sent home next week with
all the details. I hope everyone Joins us for Open House.
