Ms. Maria Talavera

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Holy Family Grade School.  I am so delighted to have your children in my classroom this year, and I look forward to sharing the school year together with him/her.  As a teacher, I will work towards creating an educational partnership with you and your child that will foster determination, and a passion for knowledge.  In addition to this, my commitment as an educator will be to provide a nurturing and challenging educational environment that will ensure his/her academic success in the field of Technology.

Since attendance and appropriate behavior at school are crucial to the learning process, it is imperative that your son/daughter attend school every day as a mature and responsible student.  During the first week of school, I will work together with the students to establish all Computer Lab rules, which will of course include Netiquette.

Our partnership will ensure that our common goal to have your child reach his/her full potential and meet all NETS standards will be realized.  As one of our SLE’s states, “A student of Holy Family Grade School is technologically literate.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of you in advance for both your support and partnership in the upcoming school year.  This year our theme will be HONESTY.  It is important to do our very best, and always with integrity. I look forward to an exciting year filled with learning.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.

Honesty is the foundation for trust; you can’t have one without the other.
