Mission Data for the week of November 16 – December 7

As we enter into the season of thanksgiving, I cannot say thank you enough to the amazing parent community we have at Red Hill.The amount of volunteer hours that you have already put into our students’ success is overwhelming.We had our first Art Masters assemblies and now volunteers are supporting our students as they complete their projects.The garden has already had our classes come out for two months being guided through their experience by parent volunteers.Many of Red Hill’s programs would not be able to operate without the volunteers we have.So thank you to those who have volunteered.I want to encourage parents who have not been able to volunteer to come support one of these great programs or others that will take place throughout the year.I know our students thank you as well for the programs they get to experience because of our volunteers.

When students and teacher return from the Thanksgiving Holiday Break, they will find new furniture in each of their classrooms.Tustin Unified has invested in updating classroom furniture throughout all schools to create a flexible learning environment for the 21st century.We are asking our students to be problem solvers in collaborative learning situations, which can be hindered by a traditional desk and chair.The furniture being delivered will allow for flexibility in creating a learning environment that can be utilized in many different configurations to meet the needs of the tasks and projects students are completing.You will also find different forms of seating to allow for student choice and comfort. Teachers and students will be working together to create the best possible learning space for them with the new furniture.
