Happy Friday, Las Positas Lions~

I hope you enjoy the last weekend before starting an exciting school year.

We are proud to say that our community is recognizing our wonderful work at Las Positas and currently our enrollment is full for TK - 4th. We are taking waitlists at this point. We still have a few spots left in the 5th grade.

At Las Positas, an IB PYP World School, we celebrate and highlight an IB learner profile each month. For the month of August, we will be celebrating the learner profile "principled."

Principled: "We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences."

Please, recognize your child when you find them doing this by saying, "Great work being principled, you":

  • "showed integrity when..."
  • "diligently carried out tasks when..."
  • "followed directions through to the end when..."
  • "were dependable and conscientious with the expectation of..."
  • "actively sought responsibilities when..."
