Ways your shopping can "Give Back" to LP
On Oct. 22, your child participated in “Tools of the Heart” a 50-minute assembly program for elementary students. This program taught our students a few communications tools they could use to help express themselves both at school and at home.
Parents, in our assembly, we learned two “tools” to help us use our powerful voices:
The “I” Message is used when you need or want to say something to someone and you don’t know how to say it. It could be used when a friend hurt your feelings or when you’re feeling angry or sad. An “I” Message is used when you want the other person to really hear you.
The “Clean Up” is used when you need or want to apologize to someone and you don’t know what to say. It could be when you hurt someone’s feelings or when you did something you knew you weren’t supposed to do. We all make mistakes and messes; this tool is to clean them up.
Using these tools takes some practice. At home make sure to practice the “I” Message and the “Clean Up” during meals, with brothers and sisters or whenever the need arises.
Every School Day Counts!
Attend Today, Achieve for a Lifetime!
The Moraga School District has partnered with the Contra Costa County of Education in an effort to boost student attendance by addressing chronic absences. Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. Students can also suffer academically if they miss 10% of school days. This can be just one day every two weeks and can happen before you know it. Good attendance will help children do well in elementary school and beyond. “Attend today, achieve for a lifetime!”

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. This wouldn't happen without the support of all our LP families.
Please donate, pledge or set up your payment plan today! www.moragaeducation.org
Panther Pacers Running Club
Every Wednesday Morning
Get your students to school a little earlier on Wednesday to participate in our Panther Pacers Running Club.
How do I sign up my student? No sign 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.
