    Dear Loma and CT Families,

     

    My Top 3 Moments of the Week...

     

    1. Watching the 5th graders practice their Thriller Dance with Ms. Lelake.
    2. Talking with kids about their creative costume ideas. We are all getting excited for Halloween!
    3. Finding the power back on at school this morning. Hurray! Thanks to our dedicated facilities staff for keeping the generator going over the past couple of days!

     

    Halloween Festivities

    Loma will celebrate Halloween with our annual Halloween Parade. Parents and families are welcome to join the fun on the Loma blacktop, October 31st starting at 8:45am.

     

    CT student will have a Halloween costume pageant and contest followed by special Halloween activities starting at 11:30am.

     

    Remember no weapons or gore allowed at school. 

     

    Halloween is a minimum day with a 12:30 dismissal time. 

     

    Parking Considerations for Thursday

    Tomorrow we will have extra cars on campus for the morning Halloween costume parade at Loma.  Please use extra caution when driving through the parking lot to drop off your student.  If you are parking and walking in with your child, please use extra care, and use the marked crosswalks. 

     

    The lower baseball field will be open for extra parking.  If you park on the north campus side of the road, please watch for Building Blocks Preschool families, and use the crosswalk to move to the south campus.

     

    Pedestrians and Drivers:  Please be aware that we are in the time of year when the sun hits drivers in the eyes and can temporarily blind drivers who are coming up the entry driveway to our campus! 

     

    Loma Volunteers/Parents

    We love having you come and volunteer in your child’s classroom, but please remember to check in the front office with Raquel before going into the classroom. In case of an emergency, it’s important to have everyone accounted for. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

     

     

    Sincerely,

    Karren Zook, Principal

     

    LOMA HSC NEWS

    Thank You!

    Your Loma HSC would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all that supported BooBash on Saturday!

    In the spirit of transparency, we would also like to share that we raised a record breaking $3,049 that will all go towards all the areas seen in attached illustration for our kids and teachers needs that are not covered by any government funding.

     

    Again.... Thanks to those who helped set up and tear down, who donated baked goods and/or your time supervising a station or two or simply just thank you for coming out to have some food from the trucks and socialized with your neighbors.

     

    We cannot thank you all enough for making this a huge success for the record books; we couldn't have done it without your help and participation.
