Weekly Update for Week of October 23, 2017
Greetings Loyola Families,
   This is Dr. Smith with your weekly updates.
            First Thank you to all families who came out to support our students by attending the Viva Loyola! Performance. The show was fantastic!
If you were unable to attend the Coffee with the Principal here are the highlights: I reviewed the New Report Card your child will be receiving in 4 weeks. I shared the areas of academic focus based on the New Common Core Standards. I shared the type of questions you may want to ask the classroom teacher in regards to specific support your child may need to continue to support their academic development.  Next we discussed the College and Career Vision Boards I’m asking all students and families to create. If you aren’t sure what it should look like please ask your child to share with you the directions distributed a few weeks ago. We also have a copy of the directions on the Parent Resource tab on the web site.  Finally Ms. Shipley reminded us of our need to attend school daily. Daily attendance can make a huge academic shift in a child’s life.
We have an exciting week ahead of us and we hope you will join us for all the upcoming events.
Upcoming Events for this week

We hope you will join us for our October events.
If you are unsure of the Magnet School System and have questions about navigating through the LAUSD Magnet schools please consider contacting Mrs. Beck-Southers our Magnet Coordinator at Loyola Village or you may speak to me as well. Understanding how to navigate through the Magnet system will allow you to make an informed decision regarding your child’s education.
Every  Monday is School Spirit Wear day, Tuesday dismissal is 1:33pm,every Wednesday look in your child’s notebook for any School to Home Correspondence and every Friday is College Awareness day.  That’s all for now.  Have a Fabulous Week!
