We, the students, teachers, parents, administrators, staff and community of Juan Crespi, recognize that education is a cooperative endeavor and that all of us must play an active role in order to achieve success.
As an educational community, we are dedicated to reaching our full potential, and we believe that learning requires self-esteem, personal effort, mutual respect, a safe and orderly environment, adequate resources and clear goals.
Together we work to develop a rigorous curriculum, a variety of school activities, and a network of support services so that all students may achieve academic and personal success as they prepare to become lifelong learners and productive citizens in our democratic society.

Good evening Stars, this is Mr. Fleischman.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful break with time for reflection, family, and community gatherings. I am looking forward to seeing everyone back at school this week.
This week we will have our Advocacy schedule on Tuesday rather than Monday due to a study trip that will have a handful of teachers and staff off campus on Monday.
Reminder that we have two weeks remaining in the first semester. Friday, January 18 will be the last day of the marking period.
That’s all for this week. Thank you, have a great holiday, Work hard and be kind. and GO STARS!
Buenas tardes Stars, soy Sophia con un mensaje del director.
Espero que todos hayan tenido un maravilloso descanso con tiempo para la reflexión, la familia y las visitas. Estoy deseando verlos a todos de vuelta en la escuela esta semana.
Esta semana tendremos nuestro programa de Advocacy el martes en lugar del lunes debido a un viaje de estudio que tendrá algunos maestros y personal fuera del campus el lunes.
Les recordamos de que tenemos dos semanas restantes en el primer semestre. El viernes 18 de enero será el último día para marcar los grados.
Esto es todo por esta semana, gracias, tengan una gran noche, trabajen duro y sean amables y Go Stars!

We live in a democratic nation, sometimes the person you like doesn't win or someone you fear does win. The good thing about our system is that no one rules forever and there will always be another election. For some of you, you will have the chance to vote in the next election. Educate yourself and make a wise and informed decision.
But bigotry and bullying are not democratic values.
I, and your teachers, and everyone at Crespi stand with our Muslim students, our Latino students, our African American students, and our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students. Our immigrant students, and your families. Everyone who feels threatened or afraid right now. We love you and we will protect you. Anyone that wants to deport you or your family will have to go through me first. I stand with you and I support you.
Young women, you deserve to be treated with respect and dignity at all times. Nothing else is acceptable. And young men this is your responsibility. I want you to look to your teachers, coaches, your fathers, your uncles, pastors and other men in your life who treat women with respect and dignity. I will continue to do everything that I can to be a great example to you with regard to how a true man treats all women with respect and dignity.
Be not afraid, be prepared. Be not timid, be informed. Be not defeated, be inspired to work harder, to read more, to engage in conversation and dialogue, to work with your allies toward a better future for yourself, your family, and your country. Education is now more important than it has ever been as it represents your opportunity to seize power and self-determination.
I have heard stories from around the country of threats toward students in schools since the election. This did not surprise me. I was surprised to hear that here at Crespi Latino students were being told that they would be deported now. I have also heard that White students have been told that it is their fault that Donald Trump was elected. However you feel about national politics, the answer is not to attack or insult one another here at school. Hate cannot stamp out hate, only love can do that. If you would like to have a safe space to speak about how you are feeling since the election, I will be in the drama room today during both lunches and we can talk then.
I will leave you with a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He said, "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." This is not the end of our story, but a moment on the arc toward justice for all.
