SA Prep Families,  

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama

Let us continue to learn about, and celebrate the black leaders of the past while emulating their courage and bravery to do what's right. 


Be safe, wash your hands, and wear a mask.

COVID, Dashboard

As of 02/08
Ready for Success, Daily Attendance 

Champions should be logged in or at school everyday by 7:45 AM. The class will start promptly at 8:00 am. Attendance is a major part of our school funding and allows us the opportunity to provide more for our champions. Also, when champions are in class they are learning.
Academic  Update
 
Per TEA, Texas schools will continue to take the STAAR test in grades 3 and up at the end of this academic year. STAAR tests will be one of the many things that show your child's academic progress and achievement this year. All testing will take place IN-PERSON per TEA requirements. Specific testing dates will be communicated as we get closer to the Spring, but we wanted to share that no at-home testing will be available

Staff Spotlight 
This week's Staff Spotlight is Ms. Deni, our Operations Specialist!
Deni Avelar graduated with a B.A. in International Studies and a minor in Spanish from The University of West Florida. As a young scholar, Deni always felt like it was her duty to give back to her community and make the path of education more accessible to underrepresented scholars, which propelled her to pursue a career in education. Ms. Avelar also serves as the Treasurer to the Hispanic Women's Network of Texas, and in her spare time, she likes to go out and discover local restaurants. 
1. I practiced Taekwondo for two years. 
2. I grew up in Destin, Florida

5. I love macaroons.

School Safety 

San Antonio Prep considers the health and well-being of our students and staff to be of the utmost importance.

We will continue to practice our COVID screenings, mask wearing, outdoor breaks, social distancing when possible and frequent sanitizing. We also have a day and night crew to support with deep cleaning. We also: 

  • Limit class sizes to a max of 18 students (3 per table) 
  • Staggered breaks
  • All meals in the classroom (including breakfast) 
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
