This Week at Placerita

I would like to begin by Congratulating our Track and Field Team for being Champions for the 13th year in a row! Thanks to all the students that worked so hard and the parents that encouraged them and all the extra effort over the past few weeks. That is an incredibly long streak and it is amazing that we have kept it going. We have an incredible group of coaches that have worked throughout the year to keep the Miners at the top!

We have some important information about the 8th Grade Bash... Please remind students or be aware if they ask questions.

8th Grade Bash Details:

  • - Tuesday June 4th from 2:45-5:15pm

  • - Tickets are on sale this week only in the Assistant Principals office. Must have ID card, cash only please. NO AT THE DOOR TICKET SALES!

Mon/Tues 5/20 & 5/21 - $10

Wed/Thurs 5/22 & 5/23 - $12

Friday 5/24 (LAST DAY!!!) - $15

We have plans next year to bring back Drama Club and work on developing a musical theatre production. If you have students that are interested share the link with them. This link was already shared with the parents yesterday.


ALSO VERY IMPORTANT - The window is now open for Online Registration for next year!

See the letter below from the District Tech Department on how to get started. Feel free to remind your students that this has to be completed before you can start school next year.

Everyone has the ability to get ready for next year right now. This does not mean that we will not send out a packet and students have to come in the summer. We will still have summer check in for photos and there will be a packet but it will be much smaller. Eighth grade parents can do the same thing to be ready for Hart in the fall if they have not started already. Please see the instructional letters attached for specific directions so you can be knowledgeable if student ask questions.. We will have regular reminders so we can get everyone complete as soon as possible.
