A Message from the Principal
The 2016-17 school year has begun and we are so thrilled to have all of our students back to school for the year! We are planning for a great year of education and growth this year at Reese!
We do have three new additions to our teaching staff to introduce to you at this time:
Ms. Munoz – 1st grade, Room 20
Ms. Smith – 3rd grade, Room 23
Ms. Shepherd – 6th grade, Room 14.
Additionally, we have had some other teachers making a shift in their positions for this year:
Ms. Bono – from 2/3 combo to 2nd grade, Room 19
Ms. Hardwick – from 6th to 3rd grade, Room 26
Mr. Yip – from 6th to 5th grade, Room 31
Ms. Martinez – from 5th to 6th grade, Room 16
This year we are introducing a new English Language Arts curriculum (“Journeys”) in our LUSD district. This adoption promises a greater alignment to the Common Core Standards which guide our teaching. We hope that Journeys will facilitate further growth in our students on the Smarter Balanced Assessments at the end of the year.
Thank you for your support in our task of educating your children this year. We appreciate anytime that parents can encourage students to follow expectations and procedures to make their educational experience safer and more productive.
Mr. Odell, Principal
