UPDATE ON ACCELERATION DAYS

Los Angeles Unified Board of Education approved a revised Instructional Calendar for the 2022-23 school year. The revised calendar includes optional Acceleration Days, which will be held on Dec. 19-20, 2022 and April 3-4, 2023. Acceleration Days are designed to help address learning loss associated with the pandemic by providing additional instruction and enrichment opportunities for students. Numerous studies have shown that additional learning time leads to increased academic achievement. These extra days provide students the opportunity to gain personalized support and focus on areas for improvement and enrichment. Furthermore, their placement during transition times provides an opportunity for analysis of formative data that allows for identification of the students who stand to benefit most. With the revised Instructional Calendar, Oct. 19, Dec. 7, March 15 and April 19 become required (not optional) days of school, and the 2022-23 school year for students will now end on June 9, 2023. Winter Recess remains scheduled for Dec. 19, 2022 through Jan. 6, 2023, and the second semester will still commence on Jan. 9, 2023.


THE GREAT SHAKEOUT 2022

The safety and welfare of our students and staff are our highest priority. To provide our school an opportunity to practice emergency response procedures, our district Superintendent has asked all students and staff to participate in a District-wide emergency preparedness drill on Thursday, October 20, 2022. Please be advised that students will be dismissed at the regular time on this day. If you have any concerns and/or questions, please feel free to call our main office for more information.


OCTOBER KINDNESS CHALLENGE

Every class will be launching the October Kindness Challenge to promote the Making Caring Common program throughout the school. The Kindness Challenge begins this Monday, October 17. Teachers will pass out a calendar to each student to track their acts of kindness on and off campus. More information will be provided the classroom teachers.
