For the third year in a row, the PTA for Los Berros Visual and Performing Arts Academy submitted a float for the Lompoc Christmas Parade. The festivities actually began on Thursday night in front of the school. The Valla family brought a flat bed trailer complete with a huge red sleigh and christmas tree to the school. The volunteers, which included students, parents, staff and other family members began the process of decorating our beautiful sleigh.
Although we didn't win any trophies this year we had a great time and the students learned valuable lessons on team work and having fun with our school community.
The 2018-2019 School of Choice Open Enrollment period is now open. Completed applications must be returned to the district office no later than January 16th. For your convenience you may pick up forms in the front office or download the form from www.lusd.org, click on "forms", "parents" scroll down to school of choice form. Once completed you may return to our office or return to Central Attendance at the district office.
If your student will be new to our school or moving to 7th grade and you would like them to attend a school other than their home school you must complete a new form and turn in before 1/16/18.
Does your child turn 5 AFTER December 2nd? Are you interested in placing them on our Pre T/K waiting list? Do you live outside of our attendance area? Then you also must complete a School of Choice application and turn in by the January Deadline.
Further questions can be directed to the school office at 805-742-2350.
The research is clear. Homework at the elementary level has minimal to no effect on student learning. Positive family interactions and home reading are, however, research-based ways of supporting student learning. This year Los Berros continues to encourage home reading, but there will not be regular written homework assignments given at any grade-level.
