Dear Parents,

Happy March! As many of you are aware, I will be out on maternity leave when the baby comes in March through the early part of May. During my absence, Mr. Joe Nardo, retired LVUSD Assistant Superintendent, will serve as acting principal. Mr. Nardo actually began his career in LVUSD as a teacher at A.E. Wright. He has served as principal of A.E. Wright and Lindero before moving to the District Office to serve as a Coordinator of Curriculum, Director of Special Education and Pupil Services, Director of Secondary Education, and Assistant Superintendent of Education. Since his retirement from LVUSD, Mr. Nardo has been active in the education world and has served as a staff developer, university supervisor, adjunct faculty member, and consultant for California Lutheran University, Concordia University, and Pivot Learning Partners. We welcome Mr. Nardo and look forward to benefitting from his experience. Should you need to speak to Mr. Nardo during my absence, please contact Mrs. Johnson, office manager, at 818-880-4614 ext. 221.

Your student’s five week progress report is now available on AERIES. If there is not a grade listed for a specific subject, this means that as of the end of the marking period, your student earned a grade of “C” or better. The next marking period (10 week progress report) will end on March 27.

While we are hopeful for more rain this month, typically by the end of March the cold disperses and students start to wear shorts and tank tops again. As you get ready to discard your student’s outgrown winter clothes and buy new spring/summer clothes, please be sure to keep the A.E. Wright Dress Code in mind.

The counseling office is working with Our House Grief Support Center to provide grief counseling to students who have lost a loved one within the last two years. If your child has lost someone significant in their life, please contact your child’s counselor (818-80-4614 ext. 289) to see if the group counseling sessions would be a good fit for your child. For more information, visit www.ourhouse-grief.org.

Please make sure you have the following dates on your calendar:

March 3           Assembly – Shawn Harper (Special Bell Schedule)

March 11         PFC Meeting, 9:00am

March 12         Early Release Day, 1:10pm Dismissal

7th Grade Parents: Medieval Market is March 12! Please make sure you review the information sheet that was sent home with your student about due dates, set-up requirements, and items that should be brought to the market. It is highly recommended that you drop off Medieval Market paraphernalia in the gym between 3:30-6:00pm on March 11 to avoid traffic congestion on Thursday. Please make sure your student’s name is marked on all items brought for the market. On March 12, it is also recommended that your student arrive early to school as all materials for the market must be out on the basketball courts in the correct location by 8:45am. Students may NOT set-up their booths before school.  Students will attend their 1st period classes, and at the end of first period, they will be dismissed to the basketball courts to set up. The market is open to parents from 11:20am-12:25 pm. Special thanks to Waste Management for donating recycling and waste containers for the event!

8th Grade Parents: This month is an important month for your student as he/she will be making decisions about what classes to take next year at the high school. I strongly encourage you to read the 2015-2016 Introduction to High School Handbook and the 2015-2016 Course Catalog (the handbook and catalog can also be found on either high school web page). If you have a specific question about your student or want advice for which courses to take, go to one of the drop-in meetings scheduled at the high school and speak to a high school counselor. The high school counselors are the ones who are best equipped to answer questions about the different academic, elective, and sport options that will be available to your student. The high school counselors will be visiting A.E. Wright on March 9 to explain course offerings for the freshman year. They will be coming back on March 30 to meet individually with your student to review your student’s course selections. If your 8th grade student will not be attending a LVUSD high school, please contact the Counseling Office as soon as possible.

To help you and your student navigate the transition from 8th to 9th grade, your student’s future high school has set up the following events:
