Welcome Message

Dear Parents and Students:
As this semester winds down and we enter the busiest time of the school year, I want to take a moment to extend my greetings and best wishes to you. Our school will be closed from December 19, 2016 to January 6, 2017 for Winter Break. I hope you will enjoy this break and spend sometime with your family and friends.
Parents, if your child struggled with any specific subject during the first semester, please use this time to make sure that he/she catches up with that subject. There are many free online resources that students can use to independently learn specific study skill or subject. Some of the most used online resources are: Khan Academy, PatrickJMT, Read Theory, NEWSELA, HowStuffWorks, NOVA, etc.
I, on behalf of Pacoima faculty, would like to say thank you to all our students who are motivated and enthusiastic about learning, and inspire us to do our best. Also, thank you parents for your amazing support and partnership with us to provide the best learning opportunities to our students. Thank you for all that you do, and I wish you all a very happy holiday season!!
Best regards,

Simer Garcha, Principal
