Introducing Writer's Workshop

Information will be shared about the components of the Writer's Workshop model, analyze how students will work in narrative, opinion and informational genres as they access the Common Core Standards, and learn about the benefits of a balanced literacy program. The presentation is presented by Leslie Nash and Marika Paez Wiesen from the West Coast Literacy Workshop.
Panther Pacers Running Club
Coming to a Field Near You!
Get your students to school a little earlier on Wednesday to participate in our Panther Pacers Running Club. Your efforts and theirs will pay off. You will see your student make great progress in their running and fitness while enjoying the time in the morning with their friends.
How do I sign up my student? No signing up is needed. Your student is already a member of our club. Every student at LP is automatically signed-up. All you have to do is come to the lower field (Willow Spring Field) by Camino Ricardo at 8:05am!
Can I run with my student? Absolutely. We encourage siblings and parents to participate. Make Panther Pacers part of your family's morning routine!
Do I have to run?
No. Students can walk or run at their own pace. It's a great way to start the day and catch up with friends!
When does it start?
Next Wednesday, October 1st at 8:05 am. Students will be released to line-up at 8:20 am.
What if it rains or the field is muddy?
Panther Pacers will be cancelled for that day. We will post cancellations only on our LP home page by 7:45 that morning. Please do not call the office to ask.

Moraga Education Foundation
Every LP Student, Every Day
Thanks to the success of last year's campaign and the generosity of our fabulous MEF donors, the Moraga School District will receive $1,500,000 in funding from MEF for personnel and programs this school year. Every LP student benefits every day from MEF funding.
This year, MEF will pay for the following at LP: Librarian, Computer Teacher, the new K-8 Writing Program, Reading Tutors, Music Teachers, Art Teachers, PE Teachers, Teachers' Aides, Curriculum Instruction Specialists (in Math and ELA), and Kids' Connection.
