A message from our principal, Ms. Diana Garcia, Principal

Dear Pacific Families,

 We’re nearing the end of the first quarter, which is hard to believe! Soon, you’ll receive an invitation to sign up and participate in student led conferences to be conducted in the afternoon on Tuesday, Nov. 24th and Wednesday, Nov 25th.  You will be asked to select a 45-minute time frame for the conference and you may arrive any time within that period. Expect to be at school for 45 to 60 minutes. During this time, you and your student will go to each class together. In each class you will talk specifically about your child’s academic progress in that class. Additionally, you will review pieces of your student’s work. It is our goal that you will see your student’s learning in connection with the learning environment of each classroom and you can see how your student’s learning is measured against state and district learning standards. Teachers will be in classrooms to address your questions or join in on your conference.  If you would like an individual conference with the teacher, we ask that you please schedule an appointment.

 We would like to remind you and your student that tutoring is available each lunch hour and after school Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  For more information click here for a full schedule of tutoring available.

Pacific PTSA has 60 members and has a goal of increasing the number of chromebooks available to teachers and students. To date, Pacific has 40 ipads and 133 chrome books in our classrooms. Several of the laptop carts are over 8 years old. When the older devices break down, they will not be repaired by our district, primarily because parts are no longer available.  I am asking all families to get behind our goal of increasing the number of laptops\chromebooks to our school.
