Panther P.R.I.D.E. ...Catch it!
"When a gifted team dedicates itself to unselfish trust and combines instinct with boldness and effort, it is ready to climb."
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! La Pluma stands with a committed staff and community to provide academic-rich, arts-rich experiences! Our mission at La Pluma is to inspire students to think, care, lead, and learn cooperatively in order to develop a lifelong spirit of learning. Thank you for teaming up with our staff and students to provide a well-balanced education and well-rounded students!
The 2012-2013 school year found us once again reaching new heights! Our students grew another 11 points this past school year bringing our API to 873! That's the way to be Panthers! We are excited about the rise in student achievement, but more importantly we are thrilled about how we will continue to build partnerships within our community and work to make learning a meaningful experience for our students!
We not only have a community of parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and other family member support, but we also enjoy our partnership with La Mirada High School, Biola University, as well as the many "former" students and parents that volunteer to support student achievement. We hope you'll join us and catch the Panther P.R.I.D.E. where students will be diving into the new Common Core standards with Perseverance, Responsibility, Independence, Determination, and striving toward Excellence! Thank you for joining us in this team effort to make every minute matter for our students!
