Principal's Message

Happy Fall!

Fall is upon us! With the colder temperatures and brisk air, it is finally starting to feel like Fall. Our students have been hard at work making #blanketsforthebrave. In partnership with the Elks Lodge, our students received $500 to purchase materials to make fleece blankets for our men and women who served our country. On November 7th Lecturing Knight Lane Keran will pick up the blankets to deliver to the veterans residing at the Long Beach Veteran's Hospital. I am so proud that our students want to thank our veterans and keep them warm in the upcoming fall and winter months.

The next Coffee with the Principal is November 30th at 8am so come on down and meet me for a cup of coffee and a chat. I'd love to show you how our students are using the STEM lab, show you our new Project Discovery vocational materials or take you for a tour in our newly renovated garden.

Remember that we have Late Start for Esperanza for:

November 6th and December 4th.

There is no school on November 12th, Nov. 19-23 and Winter Break is December 24- January 4th.

And it is never too late to join the PTA! Membership forms can be found in our Office Lobby or if you email me, I can put one in backpack mail. Your support of our PTA is vital and we truly are thankful for our incredible PTA!

Happy Fall, Eagles!
