PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Greetings Families, 


As conferences are projected to begin the week of November 2nd, please be on the lookout for information from your child’s teacher for a virtual conference sign-up. I continue to be impressed by the grit displayed by students and staff on a daily basis. Thank you for your continued support during your child’s educational journey.


I am happy to relay that the LGUSD free breakfast and lunch program has been extended through June 2021. It is to our collective benefit to have as many participants as possible. Increased participation allows us to expand and upgrade our menu and ingredients. Team LGUSD views this as a great opportunity to improve our Food Service program to ensure sustainable success. Finding creative solutions to increase participation remains a continued goal. A few ideas include specialized tasting menus on Fridays to sample new menu items and a coordination of deliveries to align with material distribution days and/or picture day. 

 
Your ideas and feedback would be warmly welcomed! Please join the LGUSD Menu Planning/Wellness Committee on October 28 to discuss new ideas!

In the meantime, please consider joining for complimentary for meal distributions Monday through Friday in the drive-thru at Fisher Middle School and Roberts Road. Breakfast is available at 8:00 A.M. and lunch from 12:00-1:30 P.M.  


I hope to see many of our Cool Cat students this Friday at our second virtual community event of the school year, “Happy Birds”. Finally, please save the date for our PICTURE DAY which is scheduled for Wednesday, October 28th. Here is a peek at the schedule for your planning:

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Kind regards, 
Jenna Mittleman
