Return to School Preparations

OK, I admit it.  The headline was clickbait.  But now that I have your attention...   

Behind the scenes, LAUSD is putting together plans for how in-person school will look - with a big emphasis, of course, on safety.  Teachers, schools and the district have all been looking closely at their portions of the puzzle.

While I can't say when the date is for in-person learning, I am fairly comfortable making this prediction:  

Teachers will have needs that will not be fulfilled by the school district.  It will be up to parents to quickly and responsively supply classrooms for our children.  

Of course you know where this is leading... for those who are in a position to do so, please support your teachers, KAMPA and the PTA as fund raising pitches come.

Shameless plug: If you are feeling generous right now, you can donate 24/7/365 on the website.  

Short Musical Update

Big Thank You to the parents and Kennedy High School volunteers who will be helping us edit the videos, and the parents who will be organizing your classrooms!  When the time comes, please read their instructions carefully, as this will be a BIG undertaking. 

True story from this past week: a Kester Magnet alum, who is about to receive her Masters Degree, recalled the dance moves Ms. Steury taught her in 3rd grade.  The children really do remember all the singing and dancing!
