Busy Few Weeks Leading into Finals!


Hello Rattler Nation!

We had a great Principal’s Coffee. If you missed it, here is the link:


Elizabeth Ward. Associate Principal on Loan to Kate Sessions Elementary

Liz Ward has been selected as the INTERIM Principal at Sessions Elementary as they search for a new principal. This will probably be for a few months. She is very excited, and I know her energy will be excellent for the littles. She loved working with the younger students over the summer when she was an acting Principal for summer school in the cluster. We wish her well for a few months. She is ready!

Luckily we have an Administrator ready to step in and cover the workload, which is highly qualified. YY Liew has been a coach for a decade–3 sports– and is well-known and respected by students and parents. He came to us from SouthBay this year as a teacher. We are excited, and so is he.

Here is a photo and website about him, and you can contact

 him at [email protected]
