School Year 2023-24
Dear TALB Members,
We are starting another amazing school year! With many new faces and changes to look forward to, we know that you are hard at work creating an inclusive and positive learning environment for our LBUSD students. Many of us welcome our new students with a book or begin our classroom community by sharing a favorite read aloud. It's our way of "setting the stage" for the year to come. Through books we connect with our students ... ALL our students!
“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.” -Maya Angelou
