I hope you and your family have enjoyed some much needed rest and relaxation. The teachers and I have been working hard cleaning the school and planning for what promises to be an amazing 2016-2017 school year! We’ve spent two full weeks planning engaging units of study with colleagues from across the Archdiocese of Los Angeles . I am delighted to be sharing with you some exciting information regarding summer reading lists, school supplies, updates to our school calendar and staff updates. Summer reading lists as well as school supplies are unique to each specific grade level please refer to the grade that your child will be attending next school year for the correct list. These will be sent in a separate email.
In an effort to improve the quality of our teacher professional learning community, we as a faculty, have decided that our time spent together would be more effective on Thursday. This means that students will now be dismissed at 1:00 P.M. on Thursdays. On Fridays, students will be dismissed at 3:00 P.M. We appreciate your understanding and support of our continued learning.
