Salt Creek Chess Champions!

Did you know that we have an amazing After School Chess Club at Salt Creek?  Our After School Chess Club hosts chess tournaments where kids from all over San Diego County compete with each other.   At one recent tournament, there were more than 100 kids competing for first place and the Grand Championship trophy.  In order to win the Grand Championship trophy, a student must win 4 first place trophies in their division.  This is very hard to accomplish, and only two kids have done so this school year—both of them from Salk Creek Elementary!!!

Andre Nuñez won the Grand Championship Trophy for the Kindergarten to 2ndgrade division, while Vinson Nguyen won the Grand Championship Trophy for the 3rdto 6thgrades.

Congratulations boys!  We are so proud of you!

Optimist Award Winner – David Mosquiera


Congratulations to 6th grader David Mosquiera for being selected to receive the prestigious Optimist Award.  Here  are some words from his teacher,  Mrs. Fallon:

David is an impressive young man who is respected by his peers, conscientious, and polite.  David is one of those students who will go out of his way to help other students and adults.  He showed patience and a positive attitude when we hosted guests from China and he served as an ambassador. He was patient while trying to communicate with our guests.  As a leading Safety Patrol member he demonstrates dedication, leadership, and responsibility.  When it comes to academics, David strives for excellence each and every day. I am confident that in the future he will achieve whatever he sets as his goal in life.

His dedication and compassion to help others does not end at school.  After school David volunteers his time by building homes for needy families in Mexico. His nonstop commitment to give of himself to benefit others is just one more example of his stellar character.

I have been fortunate to be David’s teacher this year.  Thank you for your positive attitude all year and your great sense of humor.  Thank you to David’s family for your continuous support and efforts to raise such a fine young man.
