I received a note from Jayme that the services for her mom will be on Saturday, March 2nd at 10:00 AM at Santa Clarita United Methodist Church on Bouquet Canyon Rd. If you would like to contribute to gift cards to help with meals let me know.

I hope everyone had a good four-day weekend. Hopefully we got some rest and are ready to jump into the week.

This Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 PM and at 6:00 PM there is a District Driven LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) meeting at Placerita in Tanner Hall. We would love to see several staff members there. There will be staff from all around the District discussing ideas and options for District funding for the next three years. Former Placerita Principal Jan Daisher will be facilitating the meeting. If you would like to have input, please plan on attending. If you would like more info about LCAP you can go to the California Department of Education Website at the following URL.


This Tuesday also begins our ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessments for California) Testing for our students that are English Learners. Testing will occur all four days this week. Adam has worked out a schedule and Room assignments. See files below.

Just as a reminder ...

Adam placed rosters of your 1st period EL students (highlighted) in your mailboxes on Friday. Please pick these up before 1st period on Tuesday.

Additionally, several of you received small student reminders paper clipped to your roster. These were created for 1st period teachers who may have students that are off team, or elective and PE teachers. Please pass these reminders to the given students at the beginning of 1st period.

As a reminder, please try to send all of your roster EL students to their assigned testing locations by 8:15.

We have a Faculty Meeting on Wednesday at 2:45 in the Library. DFY in SCV has a Meeting in Tanner Hall at 2:45 on Thursday. We also have an ASB Brunch activity scheduled for Friday. See Flyer below.
