Welcome Message

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,
Allow me to take this opportunity to thank the students and parents who participated in last year's LAUSD Sharing Brings Hope Campaign. Our students and staff have been very generous over the years during the District's Consolidated Charitable Campaign. Last year, Pacoima Middle School raised $3000 for various charities.

On behalf of our students and families and in the continuing tradition of our Panther Pride, I am asking for your support for the 2014 LAUSD Sharing Brings Hope Campaign. This year's campaign continues to consolidate all of our District's fundraising efforts to a single annual appeal.

Please consider giving during the Sharing Brings Hope Campaign. No amount is too
small because together, sharing does bring hope. Again, thank you to everyone who
has donated in the past. Your gifts help to make a difference in the lives of thousands of
families. By working together, we can make our communities a better place to live for
everyone.

Sincerely,
Marcy Hamm, Principal
