All School Meeting September 21, 2018
For many years, Children’s Community School’s staff has been lucky enough to receive our annual emergency preparedness training from Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Stacy Gerlich. Captain Gerlich is at the top of her field with more than 32 years of service for the City of Los Angeles where she is currently an EMS Battalion Captain.
CCS’ staff is annually trained in CPR and first aid. This year, we also engaged in extensive conversations about all kinds of disaster scenarios. We revisited our school safety policies and made sure each person knows their assigned task in case of an emergency.
The staff is grateful for the important work of Captain Gerlich who also understands the consideration our school gives to the emotional well-being of our students. She supports that mission whole-heartedly and our partnership makes CCS well prepared in case of a disaster.
I am writing to welcome you all back and to share a little bit of news from the summer.
But today, days in advance of their official "start date," who arrived? ALL SIX LEAD TEACHERS
The students are gone; the campus is quiet. Classrooms have lots of half-packed boxes in them and the walls are bare. Campers will be here soon, but this week is about wrapping-up. Or is it?
The BIG party is coming next week: THE GRADUATION SING on Thursday, June 7 at 9 a.m. (join us!).
This week, the parents of CCS will host our annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon. They will take over the kitchen with many, many donated delicious dishes, create a tranquil lunch space, provide the staff with massages, and supervise the students for a short time so that for an afternoon, the adults of CCS are well-fed and cared for. Thank you for thanking us.
On Saturday, April 28, we will host our 12th Annual PanDerby fundraiser from 9 to noon at CCS!
