Student Tips for Learning

Every week I get to talk and meet with students. Students share the true challenges of learning, which we find are challenges that occur in person and in distance learning. Here are some student tips:

"Do what you are supposed to do, not what you're not supposed to do."1st - Nico

"Keep only the tab open for what you are doing, like no game tabs open." 5th - Bodhi

If you have tips or words of advice, join me for one my meets to share or email me.

News From the Office

Beginning on Jan. 4, 2021, our office manager, dear Ms. Abby Rutherford, is taking on the preteens as the Lawrence Jones Middle School office manager. She will be greatly missed from our community because of her contagious laugh, efficient organization, and fun school spirit. She is part of the CRPUSD family so fortunately we will see her and I know her energy will be perfect for the LJ community. Thank you Abby for being an amazing Seawolf! Once a Seawolf, ALWAYS a Seawolf!


I am happy to share that our new office manager is a familiar face on our site as a parent and a para-educator in the Learning Center. Please welcome Ms. Alicia Lara! She comes to us with a deep understanding of what makes our UELF Community strong and will do a beautiful job of supporting all of you. Thank you for joining the team and for working from your heart!
