Communication

Monthly Newsletter

The school publication, “Panther Pride”, is sent home monthly. This document highlights the events of the previous month and details activities planned for the future. Click here to view the current Newsletter.

The Principal maintains an open-door policy, believing that ongoing communication with students, staff and community is essential. Appointments can be made with teachers before and after school. Some teachers produce a weekly/monthly newsletter-highlighting curriculum. All teachers communicate via homework and weekly assignment sheets.

The Los Paseos web site is maintained.If you have any questions of suggestions, please email the Los Paseos Webmaster

Handbook

Each student has received a handbook that includes important information about our school as well as a Code of Conduct for student expectations. Click here to view the Handbook.

Curriculum Night

An evening early in the school year is dedicated for parents to meet the principal and the staff. A general informational session is held. Parents are then invited to individual classrooms to hear the teacher present curriculum, discipline policy, and classroom expectations. This is an excellent opportunity for adults to interact with and become familiar with what their child will be learning during the school year.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Sharing information on a students’ academic progress is the responsibility of both the parent and the teacher. Conferences are scheduled in November. Additional conferences may be scheduled at any time as needed to discuss student’s academic progress.

Open House

Open House is held in the spring. The purpose of this evening is for families to visit the school and allow the students and staff to share projects, programs and events of the year with parents and friends.

School Visits

Parents are encouraged to help in the classroom, enjoy lunch with their child, or visit the playground. All parents and visitors must register in the office each time they come on campus. Please call the school to make arrangements with individual teachers. Parents are asked not to bring siblings on visits to the classroom.

Progress Report

Progress reports will be sent to parents whose children are not performing satisfactorily before each report card.

Report Cards

Each child will be evaluated in terms of his own ability and achievement as related to grade level standards. Progress is reported to parents at scheduled parent teacher conferences in November and at each trimester on the student report card. Work folders containing representative samples of student’s work will be sent home weekly with the student.

School Facts and Accountability Information

Each year, we share important facts about schools with parents guardians, and the community at large. Early in the fall, we produce Fact Sheets that summarize key facts from the previous school year (the most recent year for which we have complete data). Later in the year, we produce longer reports that provide details about our students, teachers, facilities, financial resources, and educational programs.
