I have been part of the LdV team since 2011. In my 15 years of teaching I have had the pleasure of teaching Kindergarten, 1st and 4th grades. I grew up here in San Diego. When I'm not here at school, I like to spend time with my husband and two children. I volunteer with my daughter's Girl Scout Troop. We might see you around town at the Zoo sometime!

Field Trip Tomorrow/ bring a lunch!
We are still going on our field trip tomorrow. Please dress your child for being outside in the cold, they will not be in the rain, but will be learning semi-outdoors. Please have them wear clothes that will keep them warm and dry.
Please pack a sack/lunch. We will not be at school during their lunch time.
If your child did not turn in their permission slip, they will be in another classroom while we are gone. They will rejoin our class, as soon as we return.
4 volunteers for field trip
We need 4 volunteers for our field trip next week, Tuesday, January 15th from 8am-12:00pm. Please let me know if you can help us!
Field Trip- January 15!
I'm so excited that we were able to schedule a last minute field trip to Olivewood Gardens in National City. Our students will be learning about growing and cooking healthy food, as well as a little about how plants grow and how we use plants.
Your child will need to return 3 items by this Monday:
1. Permission Slip
2. Olivewood gardens Waiver
3. Donation of $5 for Field Trip and Bus
*ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE PERMISSION SLIP AND WAIVER SIGNED IN ORDER TO ATTEND!!!!
We will also need 4 people to chaperone our trip. Please let me know if you can attend with us. You must be cleared through the office as a volunteer.
Student led sign ups begin today
Today you will find a sign up sheet in your child's folder for you to choose your 1st and 2nd choice of conference date and time. Please return it as soon as possible to ensure you get your preferred time slot.
Happy Holidays! I hope you are excited to see tonight's performance, they have been practicing for weeks. Please drop off your student at our room between 5-5:15pm and pick them up there after the performance is over. This will ensure everyone's safety and that we don't lose anyone. I have bandanas they can borrow for the night if you don't have one at home. I just ask that you please return them before leaving school. Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend the performance tonight. My own daughter will be performing in the Nutcracker, Downtown at the Civic Theater and I will be attending her performance. I have already told the children, and I am confident that my 1st graders will do great tonight. Mrs. Ferguson will be leading the 1st graders in their song. She will be accepting them in the classroom tonight as well.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
