A Message From The Principal ...

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test is almost upon us. This is an extremely important test that your son or daughter needs to do their very best on.  It is one of the measures that the State and District uses to determine how well your child is doing in school. Please talk to your son/daughter about how it is critical that he or she do their best on the SBAC.


Parent Conferences have recently taken place.  In February we began our intervention classes for students who need help academically.  If you feel your son or daughter continues to struggle in the classroom, please do not wait to contact his or her teacher so you can discuss how to help your child and receive additional help.


Should you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to come by my office or call me (323) 262-6382. If you need to reach me after 4:30 you can email me at:


Parent Compact- Parents Compacts will be mailed home this month. Please take the time to review it with your child.


School Parking Lot - Students are not to come onto campus in the morning, or leave to go home in the afternoon through the school parking lot. This is unsafe as cars are continually coming in and out of the parking lot. 


School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support- We want to remind you that our DFP team meets once a month to discuss school wide rules and discipline issues. Please see Ms. Campos or Dr. Escobar if you would like to be a member for the team. Flyer will follow.


College Spirit Fridays- Students are allowed to wear college & Marianna Spirit T- shirts every Friday.


Hot Beverages- As the weather is wet and cold; I want to remind parents that Students are not allowed to bring hot beverages to school.In order to avoid burn injuries, please have your child drink their hot beverages before they arrived to school.


Box Tops- We continue to collect Box Tops to raise money for our school. The forms are available for pick up in the office.


Uniforms- We appreciate your support with school-wide uniforms. The students look great and it helps them to focus on what its important - EDUCATION. Our uniform vendor, Alvaro 625-536-5556 is at the front of the school every other Monday.


Discipline Foundation Policy Committee - We have great students at Marianna Avenue! Very few of our students are referred to me because they are not following the rules. As a reminder, our Discipline Committee meets once a month to discuss any issues that may arise regarding our positive school discipline. We need your help parents. If you would like to be part of this committee, please contact the office.
