Loma Ridge Report

A Weekly Newsletter From Mrs. Berumen

Optimistic Household

Last week, Superintendent Walker announced the launch of Optimistic Household, which is part of our ongoing efforts, as a District, to connect our students and families with helpful resources that support learning and social emotional wellbeing at the highest levels for students. Shawn Achor, bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage, speaker and renowned expert in the field of positive psychology, who taught at Harvard, will provide a series of six interactive modules designed only for IUSD families.


To learn more about how you and your family can take advantage of this exciting opportunity, visit iusd.org/OptimisticHousehold. To learn more about Shawn and the neuroscience behind Optimistic Households, watch Shawn’s TED Talk, which is one of the 15 most watched Ted Talks of all time, with more than 22 million views.

As we head into the summer months, this is a way for our students and families to stay connected to our school and to IUSD. Through these helpful modules, our students and families can continue to reinforce the importance of grit, resiliency and adaptability, especially now during these uncertain times. We hope you have a moment to utilize the Optimistic Household modules with your family this summer.

Last Call for Retrieving Personal Items

We had a very successful two days of materials return and retrieval earlier this week. Unfortunately not everyone made it and we still have school property that has not been returned as well as student personal items that have not been retrieved. If you have a textbook or a library book that still needs to be returned to school, you will be receiving a reminder email from your teacher and/or Mrs. Anderson. Please be sure to bring the item(s) to school no later than June 5th. Likewise, if you haven't stopped by to gather your child's belongings, please do so by June 5th. All remaining items will be on tables in front of the office and available for you to pick up between 9:00 and 2:00 Monday-Friday. Anything that is not picked up by June 5th will be discarded. Thank you for your cooperation!

Return of IUSD Tech Equipment

Attention all roadrunners - if you checked out a Chromebook or an iPad from IUSD during EDL, please click here for details about the collection of these devices in early to mid June.

Stay connected by following us on social media and by posting images of your roadrunner with #LRdistancelearning.
