Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! As a school community, we are working hard to ensure that your child receives the finest instruction possible. We have high expectations for our students as we push them to higher academic levels. We will continue to initiate early intervention programs in the second semester to address those students who are not meeting grade level standards. Your participation in your child’s education is one of the most important factors in his/her success in school. Please take advantage of the district application Parent Portal. For more information please click on the link at the bottom of the page. Also, all students will receive an academic diary so that they can write down their assignments and be more organized. Please check your child’s academic diary on a regular basis to see if they have homework or assignments to complete. Attend scheduled Parent Conferences to receive updates on your child’s academic progress. Contact your child’s counselor if you feel that your child needs academic help.
Working together we can ensure that your child receives a quality educational experience.

Spectrum News Story on Pacoima Singers:
They have a song in their hearts, trophies on the shelf and a big trip to look forward to. “It’s pretty much a countdown until we leave to Vancouver, Canada," soloist Celeste Ignacio explained, looking at a digital clock in her classroom. The Pacoima Singers are heading north at the end of the week to compete in the Vancouver Heritage Festival and the pressure is high. “Their expectations are way up here for you," Dr. Scott Mandel told the students at a recent rehearsal.
