Panther P.R.I.D.E. ...Catch it!
"When a gifted team dedicates itself to unselfish trust and combines instinct with boldness and effort, it is ready to climb."
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! La Pluma stands with a committed staff and community to provide academic-rich, arts-rich experiences! Our mission at La Pluma is to inspire students to think critically, learn cooperatively, and to lead and care about others. Thank you for teaming up with our staff and students to provide a well-balanced learning opportunity for our students.
The 2013-2014 school year found us exploring the new SBAC assessment and the beginning implementation of the new Common Core State Standards. Our API remains at 873 and we are so proud of our continuous gains over the past four years. We are excited about the rise in student achievement, but more importantly we are thrilled about how we will continue to build partnerships within our community and work to make learning a meaningful experience for our students!
We not only have a community of parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and other family member support, but we also enjoy our partnership with La Mirada High School, Biola University, as well as the many "former" students and parents that volunteer to support student achievement. We hope you'll join us and catch the Panther P.R.I.D.E. where students and staff will be walking the Common Core path teaching Perseverance, Responsibility, Independence, Determination, and striving toward Excellence! Thank you for joining us in this team effort to make every minute matter for our students!
