October 20, 2016 @ 10:20AM, Great ShakeOut Drill

At 10:20AM this morning TEAM Charter School participated in “The Great ShakeOut”, which we participated in last year as well. By doing so students, faculty, and staff had the opportunity to practice our regular earthquake drill, with the added excitement of knowing millions around the globe, in all sectors, not just education, were also taking the opportunity to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On" at the same time.  This global effort makes this the largest earthquake drill ever! 

As a school we do drills monthly to reinforce safety practices to ensure we are as prepared as possible.  We hope that our TEAM families and others in the community are also prepared in the event an earthquake or other emergency were to occur.

Build Community.

All of us at TEAM Charter are extremely excited and honored to serve your child. We have a great new facility, beautiful classrooms, and amazing staff that are dedicated to the education and development of our students.
 
This is a school that was built as a response to the crisis in our community today.
 
I am sure, as parents, we worry about how we keep our children safe. I have a two year-old daughter and I realize that the only way she can be safe is that the children around her are safe from gangs, drugs, and destructive behavior.
 
It means that in today’s world, in order to ensure the safety of your child, it is not enough to love your child alone. It also means you have to love someone else’s child almost as much.
