This week's #warriorwednesday is the food service staff at San Antonio Elementary, Coya Wade and Candida Jaquez. Ms. Coyo has worked with the district for 15 years. She started back in 2006 and has not stopped since. She keeps a super clean kitchen and takes a lot of pride in doing so. Our kitchen looks as new today as it did four years ago when it was brand new. Ms. Candida is new to our school this year and we are pleased to have her with us. Ms. C has been with the district for 11 years. In her short time here, she has gotten to know all of our kids and takes very good care of them all. Both ladies cook with their heart and try to make every dish they serve something the kids would truly enjoy. Some of our favorites include: green chile enchiladas with beans, pulled pork sandwiches, lasagna with green beans, baked chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, and of course the Thanksgiving Dinner. We have some pretty amazing ladies working in our kitchen. They both are very hard working and love cooking for our kids. Thank you both!

Because of the national conversation about the controversial CRT (critical race theory) teachings, we wanted to make sure our district position is stated clearly. Any type of race stereotyping shall be prohibited. Our district: • Prohibits teaching that one race is inherently superior to another race • Prohibits teaching that an individual, by virtue of their race, is inherently racist, whether consciously or unconsciously • Prohibits teaching that an individual should be discriminated against or treated differently because of their race • Prohibits teaching that an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by their race • Prohibits teaching that an individual, by virtue of their race, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by others of the same race. • Prohibits teaching that an individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish or any other form of psychological distress on account of their race. We believe what the constitution says, “All men are created equal”. We will always treat all of our students equal. We will never allow for any of our students to be made to feel bad about themselves because of their race or background.
There is a free showing of Inside Out at the Lomas Theater on October 27th. It will start at 6:00pm. There will also be free snacks! Thank you to SCOPE and the Socorro County Juvenile Justice Board for putting on this event!
