Hi La Cumbre Community,

Over the past week, we celebrated Veterans' Day on Wednesday, honored 15 students as Very Improved Performers at the Assistance League luncheon, and we sent 60 students and 5 teachers to UCLA for a tour of the campus and to the UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl as part of the "I'm Going to College" outreach program from UCLA. Attached are some pictures from the game. Unfortunately, UCLA lost 31 - 27, but everyone had a great time.

Please help your student to find time to read. This is required daily, and we are seeing too many students on the Missing Work List for AR. Every students is required to read every day. We appreciate your help and support.

Movie Night at La Cumbre  - This coming Friday, November 20 - For the whole family. $5 gets you unlimited popcorn and drinks. This fundraiser is sponsored by the New York/DC trip. This is a great way to start your Thanksgiving break!

Reminder: Chaucer's Book Fair to benefit the La Cumbre Library on Wednesday from 7 - 9. It's a great time to get your holiday gifts or gift certificates. AVID will host a bake sale. Loreto Plaza.
Rotary to Recognize Teacher Nichole Caiazza - Congratulations!!
La Cumbre Junior High teacher Nicole Caiazza has been selected for a Rotary Club Teacher Recognition Award. Each year since 1986, the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara honors a Santa Barbara or Hope School District special education teacher, secondary school teacher, and an elementary school teacher within its membership area. She will be recognized at a noon luncheon scheduled on Friday, December 11, 2015, at the Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara. The Rotary will present her with a plaque along with a check made out to La Cumbre Junior High School.

This month's Spirit Activity for students vs. staff will be the 3 legged race. If the students can beat the staff 2 out of 3 heats, they will be awarded with no homework for a week (except for reading). The fun starts at 11:45 on Friday on the track field, and you are welcome to attend and cheer. These monthly activities encourage students to work together and support each other. It also allows them to interact with staff outside of the classroom to increase connectedness to school.

Reminder: No school during the week of November 23 - 27 for the Thanksgiving break. Please make sure your students are supervised.
