Community Update

June 2018

From the Superintendent

 

Dear LLESD Community,

 

It's hard to believe the school year is drawing to a close so quickly!

 

As we begin to "wrap up" the school year, we'd like offer a huge thank you to our parent community for all the successful activities/projects that have occurred throughout the school year. We truly appreciate the time and effort you contribute to these activities.

 

Congratulations and thank you to our Las Lomitas Education Foundation for a successful year of fundraising.  The foundation presented a gift to the School Board of $1,915,000.00 at Monday night's Board meeting.  Your donations contribute significantly to the District's General Fund, enabling us to offer enriching programs for all students. Thank you to our PTA's for their tireless work on the students' and the district's behalf. Your volunteer efforts are what make many of our school and district events possible. We encourage you to join the PTA and offer to volunteer for one or more events this next school year.

 

Thank you to our school community for your continued support of our General Obligation Bond Projects. Without your support, we would not have been able to build new classroom buildings. We are excited to inform you that we will be housing students in our new classroom building at La Entrada Middle School as we open the 2018-19 school year. We invite you to attend the Grand Opening celebration on August 28, 2018 at 4:00 pm. We anticipate scheduling the Grand Opening of the new buildings at Las Lomitas Elementary School some time in November 2018 when the second building is finished.

 

During May, all students in grades 3-8 took State assessments (CAASPP) in English/Language Arts and Math.  These online, interactive assessments are designed to provide feedback about how well students are mastering the California Common Core State Standards. If you had a student in one of these grades, you will receive individual student reports about your child's achievement. We expect reports will be sent out in early September once the State releases final results. Please watch for communications relative to this subject from Shannon Potts, Director of Curriculum and Instruction.

 

Lastly, please know that the teachers, staff, site administrators and I care deeply about the experience that each and every child has in our school system.  We also believe that educating children is a partnership involving families. Please let us know if you have questions.

 

Best wishes for a Happy Summer!

 

Sincerely,

 

Lisa Cesario

Superintendent

Students and Staff Cut Hair for Charity!

 

On Thursday, May 31st, five students and two staff members at La Entrada Middle School in Menlo Park gave the gift of hair to those in need.  The students and staff were joined by Sheryle Cattaneo, a stylist from M & Co. Salon in San Carlos, to donate to HairWeShare.org, an organization that creates wigs for adults and children dealing with medically induced hair loss. Each participant donated a minimum of 8 inches of hair, with one student even giving a full 12 inches!  We are so proud of those who donated, they truly embody what it means to be a La Entrada Leopard or a Las Lomitas Lion.

 

Participants:

Isabel Stid

Indiana Oren

Ellie Portugal

Zaerhin Skolak-Magee

Satoko Udagawa (Las Lomitas 3rd grade)

Adrienne Philippe
