Placerita Jr. High School - November 4, 2019
This Week at Placerita 11.4.19
Welcome to Week Three of Quarter Two!
Placerita's annual Operation Gratitude Candy Drive will run from 11/1-11/6. Please have your students bring your leftover Halloween candy to your Team Leaders to donate candy to our troops overseas through Operation Gratitude. Thanks for your help!
Our Dodgeball tournament begins on Monday at brunch and goes throughout the month.
Counselors will be out in classrooms all week rolling out new information on Xello which is taking the place of Naviance as the future planning instrument that students will use all through high school.
Our Step-it-up rewards day celebration is on Tuesday this week. Students who qualified will be participating in the event. There is a list of eligible students on the window outside the admin office. Also refer to Jamie's email for more information.
We will also have some extra people on campus on Tuesday with a LACOE training taking place in Tanner Hall.
Wednesday is the Day for Principal-for-a-Day. It is different this year in that we will be having a breakfast with the group and then coming to school for the morning. So you will see us out and around campus on Wednesday morning.
Our Earthquake drill is on Thursday morning. It will be similar to the fire drill but with a few ore details. Adam will be sending out more information with those details.
Our Healthy Choices presentation for seventh grade parents is this Thursday at 6:30 PM in Tanner Hall. This presentation will preview our Healthy Choices Curriculum from the District that will be presented in the Spring in both Science and PE classes.
Just an early reminder that there will be no school next Monday for Veterans Day on 11/11.
Let's have a great week.
