Just a few reminders:

Please drive safely in our parking lots and around our school:

There are two lanes in our parking lots. Drop off and pick up ONLY in the outer lane. The inside lane is for those parking or driving thru. Please do not drop your children off in this lane.

* Please do not park on Center Drive in the morning or afternoon as it blocks those trying to enter the parking lot.

*For safety reasons, please do not allow children to walk thru cars. Use the crosswalk in our front parking lot.

Lost and Found: Please be sure to write your child's name on their sweaters, jackets, lunch bags, and water bottles. Our collection has started.

Please help us to limit classroom interruptions by helping your child remember their water bottles, lunch, school supplies, etc. Birthday treats are okay

We appreciate your support.

We are an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school, teaching students the importance of being prepared to further their education after high school, from the time they enter TK or Kindergarten.

Wear your college shirt every Monday.

Help your child succeed in school and build a habit of good attendance. Stay home when sick. Plan vacations around the school calendar.

Remember to call our absence line by 9:00 a.m. when your child is absent. 714-538-9710 or email
