Dear Loma Families:
My Top Three Moments of the Week
- Learning all about the American flag from the CT Leo’s Club at the Loma assembly.

Seeking School Site Council Members
The School Site Council (SSC) is a group of teachers, parents, and staff, from both CT and Loma, who works with the principal to develop, review and inform decisions and advise on academics, parent engagement, safety and school climate. Please email Karren Zook (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to learn more and get involved.
