This Week at Placerita 12.2.19

We are back for the last three weeks of the second quarter before we have Winter Break. These three weeks will pass very quickly and there are a lot of Holiday activities that will be taking place in between now and then.


Please remind your students that our tickets for the Winter Formal Dance are only on sale this week! The dance will take place at Placerita on December 13 from 5:00-7:00 PM. The theme is a night in Paris. There will be food, fun and dancing. Tomorrow and Tuesday Tickets are $10. Tuesday and Wednesday tickets are $12. Friday is the last day for ticket sales and tickets will be $15. There will be no sales at the door. ASB has done a great job organizing this and it will be another fun event.


Our Holiday Band Concert will be Tuesday Evening at 7:00 PM at the Hart Auditorium. Please join us for an evening of Holiday music.


There is a Leadership Team meeting on Wednesday at 2:45 in Room 44.


This Friday at Brunch is our Student of the Month Brunch. Yes it is already here!


This Saturday the Hart of the Holidays Dance Show is at Hart High in the Auditorium and begins at 6:00 PM. There are many Dance companies participating in this event including our Placerita Dancers!


If you have requests for the Placerita Foundation get them to Janice by Wednesday afternoon. We are meeting on Friday.


There will be a hearing screening by District Nurse staff on Wednesday morning in Tanner Hall. So... you will hear alpha called out like we regularly do during that time.


If you are ordering anything for the winter holidays from Amazon please support the Placertia Foundation by ordering through smile.amazon.com and select Placerita Foundation as your Charity to support.
