    Dear Loma and CT Families,


    My Top 3 Moments of the Week...

    1. Enjoying a dance party at lunch recess with Loma students. I got my Zumba workout!
    2. Seeing our friendly parent volunteers serve Choice Lunches from the new kitchen window in the gym at CT.
    3. Singing a new song with Ms. Lelake at the Friday Assembly. I wish she would teach me to play the ukulele!


    Back to School Night at CT – Tonight!

    Please pick up your child’s class schedule as you enter the CT courtyard promptly at 6:30. We will have a brief all parent meeting in the courtyard and then parents will rotate through each of their children’s classes hearing short presentations from each teacher. This is a parent-only event. Come on time and come early for parking!


    Loma Milk Program

    The milk program began on September 3rd. If you have chosen to buy Choice Lunch for one, two, or three days a week, you will only have to pay for the days your child does NOT receive Choice Lunch. Please note on the form (see below) how many days you would like your child to receive milk with the total amount due payable to Loma Prieta Elementary School District. Milk will be distributed 9/3/19-5/22/20. Please contact Raquel with any questions: r.marin@loma.k12.ca.us
