Have a Great Week!

We had a successful, and stormy first week back at school! I loved reconnecting with our students and hearing all about Winter Break adventures. Our teachers had classroom meetings to check in with students and ensure a successful transition back into the routine of school, and hit the ground running getting everyone excited for learning.

PL Cluster Parents are invited to attend a free informational presentation on January 11th from 5-7 PM. Andrew McPeak - co-author of Generation Z Unfiltered will share practical ways to help the most anxious generation of students navigate stress. See below for an excerpt from the presentation:

From school assignments and soccer practice, to school shootings and social media; today's kids are stressed out. For more than a decade, rising levels of anxiety and depression have led Generation Z into what today's psychologists call an "anxiety epidemic." In this timely session, we will uncover the greatest sources of stress for Generation Z and provide practical insights and proven techniques for helping them beat stress and take ownership of their life.

The event will be held at the PLNU Center located in Liberty Station. The first 200 families will receive a free copy of the book. This free event is sponsored by various parent association groups in the Point Loma cluster.

New Student Passwords

On January 10, the district will be resetting the passwords for ALL of our students. This is a precautionary measure due to the recent security breach. Please be patient with us as we cannot print the new password handouts until this process is complete.
