Principal’s Message:

Dear Landels Families,

This week in morning meeting, we continued to celebrate the contributions of Black individuals. We heard a poem by Amanda Gorman called “Talking Gets Us There”. Having conversations about race, racism and the inequities that exist in our country will help all of us build compassion and empathy. 


Valentine’s Day

If your child would like to participate in Valentine’s Day on Monday 2/14, please make sure that they are including everyone in their class AND that they do not bring food. 


We want to hear from you! LCAP meetings and survey

February Better Together Infographic

In the month of February, there is much to celebrate and acknowledge. The Lunar New Year reminds us of the power of rebirth and renewal, while Black History Month gives us the opportunity to recognize the resilience of those on the shoulders we stand, along with the cultural richness of those identifying as Black in America and across the world. Heritage months grant us the opportunity to highlight the history of oppressed groups and their fight towards equality, but renewal and Black excellence transcend just this month. However we celebrate, we are #BetterTogether.
