This Week at Placerita 10.6.19

Good Evening Placerita Families!

Tomorrow (Monday) is our one day Fall Break! So Tuesday is the first day of school this week.

We have two weeks left in the first quarter. Please remind your students to double check all their assignments so they will not have to catch up next week.

Thursday October 10th is our Fundraiser day at California Pizza Kitchen. Please plan on going to CPK to support Placerita on Thursday.

Friday is the Museum of Tolerance Field Trip for Team Pacesetters. If your student is on Team Pacetters they will leave right after the beginning of school and should return by the end of the school day.

Just a final note on our afternoon carpool process. Please refrain from making U-Turns during this time. We hold up the line and create dangerous situations for our students. Let’s work together and keep the afternoon safe.

Please check the rest of the Prospector below for more information about things coming up soon.

That’s all for tonight. Have a great week!

Mr. Turner
