Congratulations to El Sereno Students & Staff. We have been identified as Reclassification All Stars by LD-east!
We will be recognized for our 2021-2022 reclassification efforts. We achieved one of the highest reclassification rates in the former Local District East. In recognition for our accomplishment we will receive a CONGRATULATORY Banner.
We are proud of our English Language Learners, we are proud of our ELD teachers, and of our school community who have supported us with teaching the ELD standards and language objectives to help support academic speaking, reading, listening, and writing.
Let's work hard to continue reclassifying our ELs for the 2022-2023 school year.
COME SUPPORT OUR AFTER SCHOOL SOCCER PROGRAM. BOYS & GIRLS BATTLE FOR THE JAGUAR WIN.
