LCTA PTA eROAR, September 14, 2020

Congratulations to us all on surviving the first week of VirtualPLUS+ ! This is no small feat, and it was, and continues to be, a truly collaborative effort. 

As we adjust to the new rhythm of things, let us also gently adjust our expectations. Expectations of ourselves, our children, our teachers ... of everyone.  I find that it helps me to keep reminding myself that I am doing the best I can; that we are all doing the best we can. I also remind myself that with time things will become smoother and easier. Our community is a strong one and with some patience, we will figure this out together!

A Message from the 360 Inclusion Committee: Hispanic Heritage Awareness Month

September is Hispanic Heritage Awareness Month, which officially begins TOMORROW, September 15th. The 15th was selected because it marks the independence days of five Latin American countries - Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.  Did you know that Sonia Sotomayor, who was confirmed in 2009, is the first Hispanic person to serve as a Justice of the United States Supreme Court?

The 360 Inclusion Committee is focusing on actionable items and discussion topics that offer a perspective of the diverse voices of LCTA. Please note these engaging new initiatives:
