Hello and welcome all of our new and returning families to Laguna Road School for the 2010-11 school year, and to the first issue of our on-line PTA newsette. We hope all of you had an enjoyable and restful summer vacation. The school year began with the count of students at 623. We look forward to an exciting successful school year. There have been a few staff changes since last year. We are pleased to welcome and introduce these new staff members:
Ms. Penny Endicott, 1st grade teacher
Mrs. Jennifer Kim-Lee, K&1 grade teacher
We are also fortunate to have six associate teachers from California State University, Fullerton with us the first semester.
Ms. Amanda Albright with Mrs. Green, Kindergarten
Mr. James Hoa with Mrs. Lawson, Grade 2
Ms. Jessica Williams with Mrs.Jurgensen/Mrs. Nguyen, Grade 1
Ms. April Young with Mrs. Ann Nicholes, Grade 2
Ms. Kim Klippel with Mrs. Wilson, Grade 5
Ms. Liz Holcomb with Mrs. Winthrop, Grade 3
Also, we have a student teacher from BIOLA University, LaMirada, with us the first semester.
Ms. Kamden Guy with Mrs. Frutchey, Grade 3
A special thanks to Mrs. Nivie Jhawar, our fabulous PTA President, the PTA Executive Board, and the Hospitality Committee for the marvelous "Welcome Back Staff Luncheon." The luncheon was terrific and a great way to start the year.
Reminder - This year our sixth grade students will need to raise $407 per student to attend the Outdoor Science School (OSS) and end of the year activities. They need ALL our support for their fundraisers. Individual sixth grade students can be designated to receive monies earned from the fundraisers for OSS.
A welcome back to school message would not be complete without a reminder to motorists of the adjustments we must all make. Those school crosswalks and white loading and unloading zones will be filled with cars and kids. Our crossing guards and traffic guards should be given a bit more courtesy. Please follow all the curb markings and the directions of our staff crossing guards. This year the white zones will be extended all the way to the MPR.
The safety of our students is a TOP priority.
REMINDER: Per Information for Parents 2010-11 school year handbook. Regarding Site Supervision. Supervision of students on school property is available 15 minute before the school day officially begins and 15 minutes after the school day officially ends. Please do not send, drop off or have your child present at the school site prior to or after the stated school hours, as the Fullerton School District cannot assume any liability for the students' safety.
Best wishes for a successful school year!
