Welcome to Week Five

Thanks again for all your work in preparing for Back-to-School Night. We had a great turn out of parents and they had a great evening. Your rooms looked fantastic and you all did a great job presenting Placerita to our parents.


This is the fifth week and the final week before the first progress report is out next week. I will be reminding students that we need to work on being caught up this week. We are settling into the quarter and we are focusing on student achievement for all. Let's dive into our content and see where it takes us!

Sharon stopped by for a visit!
