School Happenings!

August/September 2022-2023 School Year

Principal's Message

Dear Eagle Families,

We will be wrapping up August very soon. It is hard to believe how fast the days are going. Our eagles are working very hard as there are many assessments happening during this time of year. These tests help our fantastic staff know in which areas our students are excelling and where they may need further support.

Our arrival and dismissal have been going very smoothly. Thank you for helping us move the line. Our eagles are the best. They are eager to get in our beautiful building and get their day started. Please, rest assured, that we have several staff members in every hallway greeting your students and making sure they get to their classroom. If you have not been assigned a number for dismissal, please reach out to our front office staff and we will gladly help you.

I am including some information about the specific drills that we practice. Every month, we focus on a different drill. It is so important that our students understand why we practice and what each one means. Our teachers will be discussing them in detail and administration will discuss them on announcements. I am providing some information on the types of drills and emergencies so that you can continue these discussions at home. We can work together to ensure that we provide a safe learning environment and community. Please know that the safety of everyone in our building is extremely important to us. If you have any questions at all please contact us.

We have our Open House event this Thursday, September 1st, at 6:00-7:00pm. We will start in the cafeteria with our PTA meeting and then you will be able to visit your child's classrooms. Please be on the lookout for information about our PTA membership and tamale sale. Our PTA is extremely supportive of our campus. They are an amazing group that provide celebrations and incentives for our children. Please support them.

With much respect,

Laura Perales, Proud Los Encinos Principal

Emergencies and Drills

These are the drills and emergencies that all CCISD campuses practice. We will participate in practice drills every month. This is in addition to our fire drills we already do every month. When there is an event that is not a drill, communication will go out timely in multiple forms.

Thank you families for ensuring your child arrives to school on time. Students need to be in their classroom by 7:50 a.m.

* Here between 7:30-7:50 a.m. "I am on TIME!"

* Here between 7:51-8:05 a.m. "I am TARDY!"

Here after 8:06 p.m. "I am here partial day"


What is Empathy?

Empathy is the ability to be aware of, understand, and be sensitive to another person’s feelings. Instead of focusing how these feelings impact ourselves, empathy motivates us to focus on others and respond with care and compassion.

Los Encinos Parent Involvement

Research states, no matter the child's income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, attend school regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school. -Responsive Classroom
