Announcement from Mrs. Huffines

Dear Sierra Families,

As our school year comes to a close, I want to take a moment to thank our staff, students, and families, for a wonderful and productive year. Together, we have accomplished so much! We celebrated our final Rachel’s Challenge activity this week with the entire school holding our RC chain as it stretched around the playground. We’ve grown as an IB school and had a successful IB program evaluation. Many of our 4-6 classes are celebrating their 40 Book Challenge this week and we’ve had numerous student performances through plays, concerts, and our fabulous 6th grade IB Exhibition. A HUGE thank you to our PTC team and all the parents who’ve supported our fund-raisers, which in turn support IB at Sierra, as well as numerous instructional projects.

On that note, I’d like to announce that I have accepted a new position. Beginning July 1, I will become the new Director of Elementary Programs for Rocklin Unified School District. While this is an exciting new role for me, it is bittersweet, as leaving my Sierra family will be hard. I am confident however, that my successor will walk into a successful and supportive school community poised to take our IB program and our students to the next level.

With appreciation and respect,

Karen Huffines
