Welcome Message

Dear Parents and Community Members:
 
Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings peace, joy, and happiness to you and your family.

As we begin our second semester, we will continue to provide the very best instructional program possible to our students. By now, all of you should have received a copy of your child's report card for the first semester. If your child struggled with any specific subject during the first semester, please contact your child's counselor to review all available resources to help your child succeed in school. You may also sign up your child for Saturday School or After School Tutoring program. 
 
Strong parental and community support enhances the quality of education at Pacoima. Please volunteer your time and expertise on our campus and/or, join our PTSA, SSC, ELAC, or SBM committees. We know that your involvement, combined with the efforts of our outstanding faculty, will make this school year a rich and rewarding year for your child.

Best regards,


Simer Garcha, Principal
