Welcome back!  We hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving Holiday with your families.  As we return from break and get back into the swing of things, please remember to work on being at school on time each day, and remember to follow the traffic rules to keep everyone safe. 

Sixth Grade Homeroom Teacher
I am delighted to announce that we have hired Mr. Cesar Ayon-Morales as our new middle school Social Studies and Religion teacher and Sixth Grade Homeroom teacher. He has been observing in the classes and will formally take over today. 
Mr. Morales holds a BA in History from California State East Bay. He has worked with students in a variety of settings, although this will be his first teaching job in the Diocese of Oakland.  Please join us in welcoming him to our St. Leander family.
