    Dear Loma Families,


    My Top Three Moments of the Week (and Last Week)

    1. Seeing the Adams Family play! I was so impressed by all our talented CT actors! Amazing job, everyone!
    2. Hearing about the 7th grade trip to Yosemite. An enormous “Thank You” to Kate Biagini, Patty Smrt, Trevor Weber, Bob Gallup, Rebecca Carino, and the CT Home and School Club, for making this trip possible. It sounds like it was a huge success!
    3. Filling in for Mrs. Fichthorn in the library! I just love reading to kids and seeing kids read!


    Scoliosis Screening, March 4th

    Stanford Children’s Health Children’s Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center will conduct scoliosis screening for our 5th through 8th grade students on Wednesday, March 4th. The screening takes about 1 minute per students and should have very little effect on the schedule for the day. Please see the attached flyer for more details. If you would prefer that your child does not undergo this screening, the third page of the attached flyer should be completed and returned to your child’s classroom teacher/first period teacher.


    Loma Reminder – Report Cards!

    Report cards will be sent home with Loma students next Wednesday, March 4th. March 10, 11, and 12th are minimum days for Optional Parent Conferences.  Loma students will be dismissed at 12:30. There will be an extended snack time but no lunch – so pack a big snack.  Your kids will arrive home hungry!


    School Registration Information

    Registration is open for students who are new to our district schools and will be joining Loma Prieta Elementary and CT English Middle School in the 2020-21 school year. Returning Student Registration is scheduled to begin in late April.
