This Week at Placerita 10.13.19

Happy Monday Placerita Staff!


Thanks for your support for the crazy day last Friday with the fires and cancelling school. We only had three students show up for school which was really good out of almost 1100.


We are working on rescheduling the Pacesetters field trip that was cancelled on Friday. We will let you know as soon as we have a new date.


Welcome to the last week of the First Quarter! I know that’s hard to believe but we are here.


We have our first Placerita Parent Organization Breakfast Meeting this Tuesday Morning right after Drop-off in Tanner Hall. You may see a few extra parents around at the beginning of school.


There is a Faculty Meeting on Wednesday at 2:45 in the Library. If you have an Agenda item let me know sometime on Monday and we will see if we can include it.


We also have an ELAC (English Learner Advisory Committee) meeting this Thursday Night at 6:00 PM in Tanner Hall.


This Friday is our first Miner Munchies of the year. Please come to the Library at Brunch to Munch!


This Friday (3-5 PM) is also our Fall Festival! Encourage your students to attend. It will be a fun afternoon. Thanks to those of you who are participating in the Dunk Tank or chaperoning the afternoon!


Let's have a great week.
