School Experience Survey Begins October 29th
The School Experience Survey has returned. Let us know what you think. Let’s beat every school around us and make sure we have the most parents, staff and students participating in the survey this year! The oldest student in the house will be bringing home instructions to complete the School Experience Survey. Please make some time to fill out the paper survey or the online survey at achieve.lausd.net/schoolexperiencesurvey and input the 10-digit parent code found on the top right corner of the parent letter. Please print your confirmation or return the paper survey to school. When you do, your child’s name will be entered in a prize drawing!

Speaking of Hoop Fest- Please see the E-backpack for the ticket order form and the meal prepay forms. Pre-paid tickets are $12. Tickets will be $15 at the door. Because seating is limited, there will be no tickets sold at the door if the event is sold out via preorder sales. So basically- get your tickets early!
PTA Dine Out update
Finally, the PTA would like to say thank you for attending October’s Dine Out at Sharky’s. We were able to fund raise $128.77, which will be applied to school-wide programs. November’s Dine Out will be at Chick-Fil-A located in Northridge, on Thursday, November 8th from 5-8PM. We look forward to seeing everyone there and thank you once again.
