    Dear Loma Families,


    My Top Three Moments of the Week

    1. Checking out all the 100th Day of School festivities around Loma. We are all 100 days smarter!
    2. Talking to kids about their Talent Show acts. We are so lucky that Mrs. Riccomini is volunteering to organize this awesome event this year!
    3. Seeing an absolutely beautiful purple cauliflower grown by Mrs. Zanotto’s class in our very own Loma garden.

    Tonight, is the 8th Grade Welcome Night, the Electives Faire, and the LEAD Information Sessionat Los Gatos High School. It will be a big night with hundreds of current, local 8th grade students and their parents coming to LGHS to learn about the innovative programs and curricular offerings open to them as freshmen at LGHS. 


    LGHS asks that parents accompany and escort their children to the different events on tonight. The LEAD Information Session starts at 5pm in the LGHS D-Wing Building, the Electives Faire will be in different classrooms throughout campus starting at 5:30pm, and the 8th Grade Welcome Night is at 7pm in the Large Gym. There will be maps available for the Electives Faire outside the Music/D-Wing Building. Some of our Leadership students will be available to help students and parents find their way around. Parking is limited, so families should plan in advance for transportation and parking.
