Hello Le Conte Families!
We have been busy preparing for the 2017-2018 school year! We are excited to meet our new incoming students and to welcome back our fabulous returning students. We have many exciting new opportunities for all our students and are committed to working hard to make sure we continue on the high achieving path we are on.
We are in the third year of our new Le Conte Center for Enriched Studies Magnet, and the conversion of the name and theme of our existing magnet to HEAT which stands for Health, Engineering, Applied Science, and Technology. We will continue to update and improve our new Project Lead the Way “Lab” that will have new computers to support a new science/engineering curriculum. Our Physical Education Carol White Grant will continue to support our fitness goals, and of course we will have new testing accountabilities that align with the Common Core Standards. It is a great deal to take on, but we are up for the challenge!
In addition to these opportunities, there are new culmination requirements for our students. Beginning with the culminating class of 2017, students must earn points in their core classes, and PE, by receiving a “C” or better. Students must earn 21 points out of the possible 30 points to be eligible for a Certificate of Completion. More information is available through our counseling office.
We will also be continuing our partnerships with Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood, and Paramount Studios which will bring new resources, support us with technology, buses for field trips, student attendance incentives, and most importantly, free tutoring for students who need some support with their studies. Of course our after school LACER program continues to be a vital source of enriching opportunities in sports, art, music, and academic support for our students.
We ask all our parents to participate in your child’s education by attending our Back to School Night, Open House, and conference opportunity events. Please also check our website for the calendar and updated information.
Here we go!!
