Principal's Message 2/4-10

“February is the border between winter and spring.” Terri Guillemets

It is February 4, 2019! I look forward to all of the wonderful and exciting things that we will do this month. Please look at the information provided to you in the Panther Paw for monthly activities. This month we celebrate Black History, American Heart, and Children’s Dental Health. I want you to take time to review and rediscover what these very special awareness promotions are all about. Share with your friends and family all that you have learned about these three things.

On a much more serious note, I would like to take this occasion to recognize the passing of the former Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Michelle King the first African American woman to lead the District. She worked for the LAUSD for 33 years and contributed greatly to many children and their families. She was a true educator and model for the educational community she will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and colleagues. This quote is for all strong women leaders in the field of education, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. (Helen Keller)” Simply stated, let’s work together, I encourage you all to do your best and to be the best person that you can be this month!

Respectfully Submitted,

Dr. Miranda L. C. Ra’oof

The Hate You Give (Screening)

Pio Pico students experienced a private screening for the film "The Hate You give" based on the best selling novel by Angie Thomas. Starr Carter is the main character in the novel who is constantly switching between two worlds -- the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what's right.
