Albert Einstein Middle School Principal Garrett Kirkland visited Jiangman, China, this summer to establish an information exchange and student exchange program with three schools.
The information exchange will operate in two forms, Kirkland says. “Our students will be able to extend their learning on subjects such as the railroad construction,” he says. “For example, we know that Chinese workers had a rough time in America building railroads. We don’t know how the money they earned benefited their families and communities in China.”
The start of school is just around the corner — classes for SCUSD students resume on Tuesday, September 2.
With less than two weeks to go, many families of incoming seventh graders have yet to bring their child’s immunization record to school. State law requires incoming seventh graders to provide proof of receiving the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) booster before being allowed to attend school.
Don’t risk your child missing classes. Bring your record to school now.
