• Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome to Los Medanos Elementary School, the only Title 1 Academic Achievement Award winning school in the county for 2006. We are very proud of that honor and proud of the accomplishments that made it possible. I hope you enjoyed a wonderful and restful summer vacation. I would like to extend a particularly warm welcome to students new to Los Medanos this school year.

    This year our staff of dedicated, knowledgeable teachers will create an environment rich with academic challenges and activities designed to support your child as they learn and grow mentally, physically and socially. Our goal is to guide our students, while validating their cultures, as they develop into future citizens who will enter our community and enrich it by their presence.

    It is important that we develop a partnership that encourages each student to achieve to his or her highest ability. As a partner in your child's education, we ask you to become involved this year by attending our parent meetings and workshops, special performances, by visiting your child's classroom, and through the coordination of our parent volunteer program. Your support and involvement helps to create students who are interested and enthusiastic about learning.

    In order for Los Medanos to create a safe and effective learning environment it is important that parents and students understand the responsibilities and expectations for all students who attend our school.

    Thank you and here's to another award winning school year, filled with exciting learning adventures!
