Scholarly Dress Expectations - January 6, 2020
As discussed in August at the Orientations and Back To School Night, Scholarly dress is the expectation for Gompers Students.
I am saddened that the number of students not in the daily scholarly dress expectations is increasing. LBUSD is a uniform district for students in grades K-8, since 1994.
Please ensure your student(s) are in scholarly dress each day as they walk through the "gates of success".
National Giving Day is 12/3...Help us reach our "goals' by supporting PROJECT Shepherd...supporting our community in need
