End-of-year message

Hello, Eagles. Happy Saturday! This is a summary message of the 2020-21 school year! Time flies! This message has five parts: self-care, celebrations, special events, school-wide end-of-year Webinar, and appreciation.

On August 3, 2020, we shared this self-care tip: See attached for six ideas for self-care from Local District Central’s https://achieve.lausd.net/site/Default.aspx?PageID=12511, such as getting 7-8 hours of sleep.  We shared this quote from Parker Palmer, “Self-care is never a selfish act—it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others.” During this school year, we’ve made it a habit to remind you to take care of yourself, each other, and this place. In what ways are you doing good for you? Maybe grab a sip or two of water, stretch, take a couple of deep breaths, or walk around for the next three minutes of this call?

  1. Celebrations:
    1. Congratulations to our retirees: Mr. Howard Bodner, Ms. Anna Levitsky, and Mr. Paul Pontrelli! We are thankful for your love and service!
