Sunday Minute – December 9, 2018
Good evening families, this is Mrs. Stevens, with this week’s Sunday Minute!
Thank you to the parents, families and friends who attended our Holiday Program. Your support and smiling faces were a blessing. Thank you to our staff for all of your hard work in making this year’s Holiday program a success.
PTA 5th Grade Committee Donut Day 12/13
Don’t miss out on pre-ordering your Krispy Kreme donuts this Thursday, December 13th. They make a great treat for the workplace or family. See the ebackpack for the preorder form, and please be reminded that before school purchases cannot be sent on campus with students. Thank you.
MINIMUM DAY Friday 12/14
Parents, please mark your calendars and make 12:33PM pick up arrangements for this Friday- our last day of school before Winter Break. Friday, December 14th is a MINIMUM Day and school will be dismissed at 12:33PM. Students will be eager to start their Winter Break, please pick up your children at 12:33PM.
Talks of Possible Strike
Many have asked if it’s true that there may be a teacher strike soon after Winter Break, and if our teachers are planning to participate. Our teachers work hard every day to help our students reach their full potential, and every day they are here they give 110%. Unfortunately, L.A. Unified and the United Teachers Los Angeles union have not come to an agreement on a new contract. Therefore, yes, it is highly likely that teachers may take strike action soon after Winter break. If so, school will remain open, and although teachers will be striking, your child’s safety will remain the top priority of any staff and/or volunteers choosing to be here during that time. Again, our teachers work hard, I appreciate them greatly, and I hope that everything works out for the best. Please feel free to contact me via email (Josephine.firstname.lastname@example.org) with other concerns or questions.
That’s it for this week’s news from school! Have a tigerrific evening!
