Dear Parents:
Thank you for taking time and attending our Parent-Teacher Conferences.  As a school community, we are working hard to ensure that your child receives the best educational opportunities possible. We have high expectations for our students as we push them to higher academic levels. We will continue to initiate early intervention programs to address those students who are not making adequate progress throughout the year.
On a separate note, I can’t believe it is November already and we are entering the holiday season! I wish a very happy Thanksgiving to all our Pacoima families. I would also like to take this time to reflect on our many blessings.  At Pacoima, we are grateful for the kind people in our lives who love and support us so that our students believe, achieve and succeed.
Thank you,
Simer Garcha, Principal
