Principal's Message

Dear Field Families,

Thank you to our small but strong group of volunteers who cleaned up our garden beds on Saturday. Most of the garden is now ready for our students to start planting our fall and winter crops.

On Saturday, Oct. 17, the carpet in our library will be cleaned which means everything has to be moved out in the next few days. This is going to happen in stages throughout the week so I am asking all parents to remain out of the library unless you have to speak with Ms. April, our LEARNs Coordinator. Ms. April will also be relocated during the week.

I hope you got a chance to see our beautiful Tree of Life display at the Light Bringer stop during Pasadena Art Night last Friday. Thank you to our talented parents who guided the students in its creation.

On Thursday morning, our school will participate in the California Great Shake Out Earthquake Drill. If you see emergency vehicles at our school on Thursday morning, please do not be alarmed. Fire Departments often stop at schools to monitor the drills.

Please don't forget there is no school on Friday, Oct. 16, to allow more opportunities for Parent/Teacher Conferences.

Thank you for your continued support,
Ria Apodaca
