  • Thank you for turning in paperwork and the donation for our field trip this Friday to the San Buenaventura Mission. We are all set and ready to go! Your child just needs a water bottle and a sack lunch for this day. Please avoid sending the regular lunchbox, so cleanup is easy. Be sure to have your child wear comfy clothing and shoes as we will be doing a lot of walking. I will send home a little reminder sheet on Thursday.

  • Paperwork for the field trip to the San Buenaventura Mission is due ASAP to the classroom.
  • The $15 donation for the trip has to go straight to the WW main office. There is a POWW box located on the wall inside the office. Unfortunately, I cannot take donations from you or your child.  This is a new LAUSD policy.  Donations should be in an envelope clearly marked with student’s name, Mission Field Trip, Room 25, Mrs. Hauser.

We also run laps on most mornings. Although it is  hot outside, students still need to dress appropriately for school. Thank you for your support!
