Dear Loma and CT Families,
My Top Three Moments of the Week
- Admiring the new mural at CT. Thanks to Ms. O’Dea and her team of industrious 8th graders for adding their artistic touch to our school!
- Watching Ms. Krueer’s 2nd grade class learn a line dance with Ms. Lelake! I am so impressed by how quickly they picked up those fancy moves!
- Talking to Mr. Thompson’s 6th graders about their “Passion Projects.” Whether it be reptile adoptions, butterfly gardens, or fundraising for athletic supplies, these kids have some awesome ideas!

Loma Prieta School Site Council Presents: Screenagers The Next Chapter and Screenagers
In March, The Loma Prieta School Site Council is excited to host 2 great movie nights at the Loma Prieta Forum. First is The Next Chapter on Thursday, 3/5/2020 @ 7p.m. and then Screenagers on Thursday, 3/19/2020 @ 7p.m. Although The Next Chapter is a follow up to Screenagers, they are each stand alone movies so you do not need to have seen Screenagers beforehand. The Next Chaptercovers different strategies for dealing with the "screen" related stress, anxiety and depression that is affecting our youth. Screenagersgives a comprehensive look at the effects of screen time on our youth.
- Seating is limited to 200 people per showing, so get your tickets fast! Tickets can be purchased at the following link:
- Each movie is suitable for kids age 10 and up.
- Each movie runs for just over an hour.
- CT students will get to see Screenagers at school the same week that we will be screening it for the community so attending the movie as a CT parent will be a great way to open the dialogue at home surrounding screen time.
