Dear Families, this is your last robocall for the school year! On behalf of our staff, I want to wish you a restful, fun, adventurous summer! Please know that our office will be open until June 16th. Our invitation only zoo themed summer school runs from June 12-July 17th with no school July 4th. Kids care for LT students will be at
Miwok so that our custodians can do needed maintenance work on our building over the summer. A notice went home providing information about the Old Adobe School District summer food program that will feed children 0-18 years old for free. Please note that these meals will be at Miwok, not La Tercera. Please visit the Old Adobe School District website for more information.
Every summer I think about Luther Burbank, one of our most famous Sonoma County residents, who developed over 800 strains and varieties of plants in his lifetime and whose house you can visit in downtown Santa Rosa. We strive at La Tercera to educate the whole child. Summer is also a time to discover the world and learn in the beauty of our natural world. Here is Luther Burbank’s advice on education;
“Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb. Brooks to wade, water lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets; and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of education.” ― Luther Burbank
I hope to see you out and about this summer. Fondly, Mrs. Hodge
