First-Day of School, in the Summer?

Mike Grein, the Principle, with Adam and the kids

Times have changed since I went to school. My elementary school in Germany did not look like anything the new Cabot Yerxa Elementary School does. Desert landscaping, winding esplanades, appearing more like a junior-college, with a killer vista of the San Jacinto Mountains. A healthy, joyful and save an surroundings for the young  “Cabot Yerxa Explorers” to be taught.

Cabot Yerxa Elementary School, located in Desert Hot Springs, California, serves grades K-5 in the Palm Springs Unified School District and serves about 600-hundred students.

I followed our city councilman Adam Sanchez that sunny Monday morning at 7:30 am. He was taken his grand-children to their first day of school in the middle of the summer. The reason is, Cabot’s is a year-round school and takes a different tack on learning by using multi-track or single-track calendar. Summer’s vacations are eliminated, and students have shorter, more frequent breaks.

Mike Grein, is the Principle and is very respected and loved by his students. He administers the school with a staff of 23 teachers. He was in full swing that morning, managing traffic with a smile and a kind word to the youngsters and their parents.

Adam’s grand-children got breakfast at their very clean school-cafeteria, only fresh fruits, and natural health food on the menu; all food purchases are tracked by staff, for each child. No junk food in this place, the children looked fit and obesity was not visible anywhere.

Cabots Yerxa Schools Mission Statements is:
The faculty and staff of Cabot Yerxa School believe that each child is a unique, valuable individual who is capable of learning and succeeding. We further believe that participation, communication, and cooperation with the home and the community at large are critical for student success in school.

These strategies, while promoting district and state goals for educational development, will facilitate the growth of productive members of a democratic society.
