July 26, 2021
Dear Mandela Community,

Although in some ways it feels like summer is in full swing, we are also a few days away from reconvening and then welcoming your students into our space once again. 

Here are a few logistical details as our summer break comes to a close:


New Student Orientation:

Where

Mandela International Magnet School

1604 Agua Fria

Date

Wednesday, August 4

Time

11am, 12pm, 1pm

Please select a time by clicking on this link

Target Audience

Students who are new to Mandela International Magnet School or who have never set foot on campus.


On-campus learning:

Please remember that all instruction will take place on campus for the 2021-2022 school year.  We have not heard new guidance from PED yet, so we will assume that masks will be required until told otherwise.  Should you need an online school for your student, Desert Sage Academy is a K-12 online environment within SFPS.

Registration:

If you have not registered yet with Santa Fe, please do so ASAP within the SFPS portal.  Here is the link.

Bell Schedule:

Attached is our 2021-2022 bell schedule.  Please note the start time of 8:40, meaning the first bell is at 8:35.  Busses will run at 2:15 on Tuesdays and all students will return home.  On all other days, release time is at 3:40 and busses will run at that time.

Lunch:

Lunch will be provided free of charge for all students within SFPS in the 2021-2022 school year.  We will be taking a lunch count to get an accurate number for the nutrition department and we discourage wasting food.

Drop Off / Pick Up:
Please use this map to plan your drop off and pick up.  It is illegal to take a left turn off of Agua Fria when facing west and SFPD often monitors this during school hours.  Please remember that you must be facing north to drop your student off at MIMS.  Please do not turn into the teacher parking lot which is on the north side of our building.


Materials / Supply List: 

Technology:  

Technology must be picked up at the technology warehouse off of Camino Carlos Rey.  The address is 2516 Camino Carlos Rey.

Activities/Parking Fees:

Activity fees are $25 per student, cover costs of replacing technology equipment onsite, and provide each student with an identification and lanyard.

Parking fees are $25 per student and students will receive a parking pass that must be displayed to park in the student parking lot on the south side of the Mandela Campus.  Students may not park in the teacher parking lot.

Payment can be made to Ms. Malinowski by cash or check in the front office.

New Staff:

I am excited to welcome several new members to our Mandela Community!  Briefly, they are:

  • Mr. Christian Loredo, who will teach Spanish in the MYP Language B department
  • Ms. Norah Tullman-Kaltenbah, who will be teaching MYP Individuals and Societies
  • Mr. Allie Farnlof, returning to Mandela International Magnet School after several years away in Special Education and Gifted
  • Ms. Jennifer Finley-McGill, who will work part-time as our licensed librarian
  • Dr. Kathryn Klein, who comes on board as a part-time SPED / Gifted teacher.

As I reflect on our last year and think of the next, I am brought to remembrance of our namesake, Nelson Mandela. In his time in prison, Mandela continued his work as an activist and even mentored other prisoners in his desire to instill change.  Our last year was very difficult.  However, our staff continued and will continue on, knowing that we will stay encouraged, focused, and genuinely happy to do the noble by the experience we possess, the passion we hold for education, and the belief that youth are the key to our collective future work with kids.  I am looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year with you all!

Warmly,


Randy Grillo
Principal / Head Learner

Estimada comunidad de Mandela,
Aunque parece que todavía es verano, también estamos a unos pocos días de regresar a la escuela y darles a sus estudiantes la bienvenida a nuestro espacio una vez más.
He aquí unos detalles para los siguientes días:

Dónde

Mandela International Magnet School

Fecha

miércoles, 4 de agosto

Hora

11am, 12pm, 1pm

Favor de seleccionar una hora con este enlace  

Target Audience

Alumnos nuevos a Mandela o alumnos que nunca han estado en el plantel.


Aprendizaje en el plantel:

Favor de recordar que toda instrucción tomará lugar en el plantel de la escuela durante el año escolar 2021-2022.  No hemos escuchado nuevas noticias del Departamento de Educación así que planearemos que los alumnos usarán mascarillas hasta que nos digan algo diferente.  Si necesitan una escuela en línea para su estudiante, Desert Sage Academy es una escuela K-12 en línea dentro de SFPS.

Registración:

Si todavía no se ha registrado, favor de hacerlo en este enlace lo más pronto possible. 

Horario de clases: 

Adjunto está nuestro horario de clases.  Favor de notar la hora de comenzar a las 8:40 y la primera campana a las 8:35.  Los camiones serán a las 3:40 todos los días menos los martes.  Los martes los camiones serán a las 2:15pm y todos los alumnos regresarán a casa a esa hora. Favor de dejar y recoger a sus alumnos a tiempo.

Comida:

El lonche/comida se dará gratuitamente para todos los alumnos en SFPS durante el año escolar 2021-2022.  Tomaremos un conteo para no desperdiciar comida y asegurar que hay suficiente.  

Dejar/Recoger a los Alumnos:
Favor de utilizar este croquis para planear dónde dejar y recoger a sus estudiantes.  No se permite doblar a la izquierda saliendo de Agua Fría si va rumbo al oeste y muchas veces hay patrulla allí.  Además, no se permite utilizar el estacionamiento de maestros (en el lado norte del edificio). 



Lisa de materiales

Tecnología:

Se tiene que recoger su tecnología en la bodega saliendo de Camino Carlos Rey después de registrarse y antes del primer día de clases.  La dirección es 2516 Camino Carlos Rey.

Cuota de actividades/estacionamiento:

La cuota de actividades son $25 por alumno y cubren los costes del reemplazo de tecnología en el plantel y provee la identificación para el alumno.

La cuota del estacionamiento estudiantil son $25 por alumno y los alumnos recibirán un pase de estacionamiento que se tiene que plasmar en su auto para usar el estacionamiento en el lado sur del edificio.  No se permite estacionar en el estacionamiento de maestros en el lado norte del edificio.  Se puede pagar con efectivo o cheque con la Sra. Malinowski en la oficina de Mandela.

Nuevos Maestros:

Ayúdenme a dar la bienvenida a algunos nuevos maestros en nuestra comunidad.  Brevemente son:

  • Sr. Christian Loredo, maestro de Español en el Programa de Años Intermedios
  • Sra. Norah Tullman-Kaltenbach, maestra de Individuos y Sociedades en el PAI
  • Sr. Allie Farnlof, regresa a Mandela International Magnet School después de algunos años, maestro de Educación Especial/Gifted
  • Sra. Jennifer Finley-McGill, biblioteca licenciada
  • Dra. Kathryn Klein, maestra de tiempo parcial en Educación Especial/Gifted


Pensando en el año pasado y este próximo, me hace recordar a nuestro homónimo, Nelson Mandela.  Durante sus años más difíciles, siguió su trabajo como activista y tutor / ejemplo para otros en su deseo de hacer cambio.  Nuestro año pasado fue muy difícil.  Sin embargo, nuestros maestros y personnel siguieron y seguirán trabajando mucho, sabiendo que por la experiencia que tenemos la pasión que poseemos para la educación pública y nuestra creencia que la juventud es clave para nuestro futuro colectivo, nos mantendremos animados, enfocados y felices para hacer el trabajo noble con los jóvenes.  ¡Espero ansiosamente el año escolar 2021-2022 con todos ustedes!

Con afecto,


Randy Grillo
Director

Peachjar Flyer Distribution


Our district wants families to know about valuable programs and resources in the community. To facilitate delivery of this information, approved community organizations can send their flyers home to families digitally through Peachjar.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.

● Visit www.peachjar.com
● Register as a Program Provider (account type)
● Upload your flyer for approval

Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office for approval. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to parents and posted on each school’s web flyerboard for your selected duration of time. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
