Good Evening Daniel Pearl Sharks, this is Principal Smith with important information related to the upcoming opening of the new school year.
I want to welcome all of our new families and staff, as well as our returning families, to the best little school in the west! Orientation is next week, Tuesday, Aug. 11th for 9th grade and new students, and Wed, Aug 12th for returning students. Orientation takes place from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Please visit www.pearlmagnet.org for all registration documents. Print them and complete them prior to coming to orientation.
Also, go to www.applyforlunch.com, complete your meal application and bring your confirmation page with you to orientation. Computers will be available for families who need assistance with the meal application. Remember, all families should complete the meal application because this has a direct connection to our school funding. If you know you do not qualify, just click the box on the application that indicates this and you will bypass the entire process. Again, please bring your confirmation page that you completed the application.
Students who have IEP’s or 504 Plans are encouraged to bring them to orientation to ensure services begin right away. PE clothes will be sold on both days of orientation in the Student Store/Parent Center, and a set, T-shirt and shorts, will be sold for $25, cash or check.
Last but not least, we need student and parent volunteers to assist with orientation! If you would like to meet the new students and parents, this is a great way to get acquainted! Call the school if you can help us out, 818-654-3775. School opens on Tuesday, August 18th, and it is a Tuesday, so we will be on a shortened day with dismissal at 1:42pm. That’s it for this update, and we’ll see you next week!
