Dear Ladera Families:
Welcome back to all returning families and a big hello to our new incoming families! I hope you had a great summer and are excited for the new 2017/2018 school year.
We have a saying at Ladera that it “takes a village” and we pride ourselves on the relationship the parents, students, teachers and administrators have on contributing to the success of our school. Our mission is to create a positive learning environment with high expectations for all students.
Each year the PTO has a theme and this year’s theme is “Play It Forward”. One of our main goals is to raise money to replace our three playgrounds with safe, fun, interactive and updated playground equipment.
Our annual Membership Drive kicks off on August 24th and will run thru September 29th. All money raised will go directly to student support and academic programs. Your donations pay for enrichment programs such as Multi-tiered support providers, Technology support and personnel, S.T.E.A.M. Lab, Physical Fitness Program, Art, Field trips, Library, After School Programs and so much more.
The PTO plays a critical role at Ladera and every parent is welcome and encouraged to become a PTO Member. By joining the PTO, you demonstrate your support for our teachers, staff and the best possible education for your child.
We invite you to visit our newly designed website at www.laderaleopards.org for more information and calendar of events.
I look forward to working with all of you this coming year. Your time, talents and resources are greatly appreciated.
President, Ladera PTO
