Our Students Matter!  Previously known as the Spirit Drive, in recent years, funding for our school has become more than “extras.”

Our status as a Charter kept us from losing funding for existing programs, but there are essential items the District does not provide for, including but not limited to:

  • Workbooks – $2,000
  • Student Agendas – $1,500
  • PE Program – $13,000
  • Field Trips – $6,000
  • School Equipment – $4,500
  • Technology – $4,000
  • Assemblies – $2,500
  • Library Books – $500

A donation of $200 per year, easily broken down into 4 donations of $50 every other month, keeps those essentials for each student.  Donations are tax deductible as we are now a non-profit organization, and are easily made through our website or by filling out our donation form (click here).  Your teachers and parents ask you to please consider giving as generously as you can so each child may have the tools they need.

School Safety – Closed Campus


Enforcement of our Closed Campus Policy maintains the safety and security of our students, staff, and visitors.  School safety was deemed enough of an issue that LAUSD funds two security staff members for each school, and local police patrols and traffic enforcement have been increased.   Fortunately, any safety events on our campus have been handled without incident.

We ask you to please be the example, not the exception.  As a reminder -

1.  Non-students may not enter our campus without going through the office

  • before school
  • during school
  • after the gates are closed 1 hour after dismissal

2.  Non-students must sign in and wear a visitor sticker while on campus

3.  School gates are not to be opened unless by authorized staff (i.e. custodial, YMCA, or office staff).  This includes all teachers, staff, parents and students.

4.  The Staff Parking Lot is for staff only.  Drop off and pick up is not permitted at any time

5.  The Kindergarten Gate is for the use of Kindergarten Students only.  Adults must sign in at the office in order to enter campus.

6.  All students are released only to identified individuals on the student’s Emergency Card.

After School RULES


Per the District’s policy, after school, the yard is open ONLY TO STUDENTS SECOND THROUGH FIFTH GRADES.  Kindergartners and first graders MAY NOT be on campus after school, even with an older sibling, for their safety.  The Youth Services division of the LAUSD (Beyond The Bell)  provides one coach to monitor the entire yard after school. The Youth Services program is an open-campus program, which means that students do not need to sign-out to leave the campus.  Students are free to leave the campus, so please speak to your child regularly regarding your expectations of him/her walking home, going to a friend’s house, or staying on campus to wait for you.  Preplan with your children and communicate with them every morning about that day’s after school plan for everyone’s safety!
