Luis Valdez Leadership Academy


Fall back

Dear Lions,

Can you believe that the school year is 1/3 over? We have five weeks of classes before the end of the semester! It was great to see so much motivation and momentum at the end of the grading period. It is important to keep that energy up so that you can finish the semester strong. Aim for A's and B's, so that your transcript shows a strong GPA, which will make your road to graduation and college application process smoother.

On Monday, we will have a team of visitors on site from the East Side Union High School District. As a charter school, the school district visits us yearly to see how we are doing and make sure we are following our own policies and providing high quality instruction to our students. It is important to be in class, stay focused, use the cell phone hotel and engage in learning, just like you normally would.

Congratulations to Ms. Torres Advisory for winning the college door competition. Shout out to Mr. Viri's Advisory for coming in a close second. Thank you to all the Advisories who made fantastic doors and showed options for colleges in California.

Soccer tryouts are this week. They are late in the evening, so if you are trying out, make sure that you are getting home and getting to rest so that you are not late to school the next day. Tryouts are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 8-10pm. Basketball conditioning will be Monday and Tuesday from 4-5pm.

Seniors- you are close to the application deadline for UCs and CSUs. If you need support, please ask your advisor, Mr. Martinez or me. We are here to help you get your applications submitted and your essays polished for UCs. You got this.

There is no school on Thursday for Veteran's Day. Friday will be a Monday schedule. Don't forget to change your clocks this weekend- we gain an hour of sleep!

In community,

Ms. Silb
