YMCA P.L.A.Y. AT PASS!
We are very lucky to have YMCA's P.L.A.Y. (Physical Learning Activities for Youth) program with us at Primary Academy. Every Monday morning, all K-2nd students will receive guided physical education instruction for one hour. Parents, please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes and tennis shoes on Mondays. If there any health concerns, please notify your child's teacher. The PLAY program is funded with Student Body money.
BREAKFAST IN CLASSROOM
LAUSD's "Breakfast in the Classroom" program has improved attendance, increased academic performance, and increased student focus. Please help us support your children by making sure your child gets to school on time. Please take note of these guidelines:
First Day of School
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! The first day of school is Tuesday, August 16th. School begins at 7:50am. Returning students will meet on the yard and line up with their room from LAST YEAR. New students will go to the Cafeteria to meet their new teacher.
PASS is Honored with GOLD RIBBON SCHOOL AWARD
California State Schools Superintendent Tom Torlakson awarded Primary Academy for Success with the Gold Ribbon Award for Excellence! Out of 6,000 eligible California elementary schools, 44 LAUSD schools were bestowed the Gold Ribbon. Primary Academy is very proud of all the students, teachers, staff, and parents who helped us achieve this accomplishment. To read more, click this link here.
Campus Beautification Day
A HUGE THANK YOU to all the parents, students, staff, and volunteers who helped clean up our school on Sunday, April 10th! Families showed up to help wash windows, pluck weeds, sweep the ground, and blow away debris! On top of that, a brand new edible gardening area was installed on our yard! The garden will be used for future lessons with classrooms, and students will eventually be able to taste and eat the vegetables that will grow in the garden! To everyone who helped, thank you for all your time and hard work!
