A Message From Principal Diaz

September 2015

Strathern Families,


The 2015-16 school year is off to a great start. Thank you students, parents, and Strathern staff for making the opening of school a success. This school year Strathern will work on…

  • Enhancing instruction to deliver and help students master the Common Core State Standards.
  • Integrating Technology into instruction so students build a capacity to utilize computers into their learning.
  • Build collaborative practices in our learning so students work in teams to problem solve.
  • Prepare students for 21st Century skills by problem solving, analyzing, and integrating technology.

I look forward to the new school year and the opportunity to work with the great students, parents, and staff at Strathern.  

Banked Time Tuesdays: Just a reminder that every Tuesday dismissal is at 1:23pm. Please remember to pick up your child on time. After 1:23 we do not to have supervision for students Tk-1st grade not enrolled in LA's Best. Parents please remember to safely drop -off and pick up your children. The best practice to ensure safety for all children would be to park your car for arrival and dismissal. We want to have safe year for all students. Please also remember to leave the bus zone free and clear.

Council Meetings

ELAC (English Learner Advisory Council) and SSC (School Site Council) will have Orientations and Elections on September 16, 2015. Please come and participate in your child’s education.

Time: 8:30 am / Location: Parent Center

Meal Applications

Parents please complete a meal application for your child (one per family). You can fill out an application and mail or complete it online. If you require assistance you may see Ms. Moreno or Ms. Robledo in the Parent Center, applyforlunch.com

Parent Involvement

One way to show your child that school is important is to get involved in school activities. One way is to join the school councils and / or PTA . Let your voice be heard and take part in Council meetings once a month. Nominate yourself Wednesday September 16th in the Parent Center!

Healthy Snacks

Parents please assist your child in making healthier choices like fruit, crackers, and water. Please try to stay away from sports drinks, carbonated drinks, Cheetos, and candy. 


Avoid walking alone.

Never take a ride with or walk with a stranger.

If a stranger approaches or attempts to get the child into a vehicle, children should scream and run for help.

Students should use precautionary measures, even while waiting inside of the schoolyard, until parents arrive. Parents and students should maintain good communication about pick-up/drop-off times and locations. Never walk in an isolated area or alley.

Tell students to immediately report anything that makes them feel unsafe or uncomfortable to the police and/or a school staff member.

‚ÄčThank you for your continuos support!


Cynthia Diaz
