Principal's Corner

Dear Parents,

The Loomis Basin Education Foundation (LBEF) is in need of volunteers to help unload e-waste from vehicles and dispose of it in e-waste bins on April 25, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The funds generated from the e-waste collected will go into the LBEF general fund, which will then be used to support each school in the LUSD. 

If you are able to help support the schools in the LUSD and LBEF through your participation in the E-Waste Drive, please send an email to bemard@kmtg.com or call (w) 321-4556 and (c) 601-9566. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

Lifetouch will be providing Spring Pictures on Wednesday, April 22nd. Please be on the lookout for the Spring Picture large flyers, which will be sent home on Monday, April 20th. Please review the instructions on the flyer for ordering information, and return the bottom portion for “background selection” on Wednesday morning.

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) will continue next week for 4th and 5th grade students.  The 4th and 5th grade testing window will take place through April 24th. The 3rd and 6th grade testing window will take place from April 27th through May 8th.

We would like to ask for your continued assistance in helping to ensure that students are present during the CAASPP testing windows. Please schedule appointments, trips, and events outside of school hours and/or outside of the scheduled testing windows in order to ensure that students are available for all days of testing.  We want to thank you in advance for your support in this endeavor.
 
Thank you!

 
Sincerely,

Kevin Roche
