The 2016-2017 school year is soon to begin, hence this topic. We hope you are smiling and counting the days. We are!
Summer construction continues with various modifications and upgrades to Parras Middle School. Quite frankly, Parras is looking pretty awesome. If your child attends school there, I’m confident you will be impressed with the last two months of progress. Alta Vista and Tulita received new exterior painting as well. In a few months, we will add a turf field at Birney Elementary. Thank you to the Birney learning community for your patience.
We have some new administrator changes to share:
- Dr. Nicole Wesley, Director of Student Services (former RUHS Principal)
- Mr. Jens Brandt, RUHS Principal (former RUHS Assistant Principal)
- Mr. Bill Dargen, RUHS Assistant Principal (former RUHS teacher)
- Mr. Jonathan Erickson, RUHS Assistant Principal (former Ingenium Schools Administrator)
- Ms. Nancy Ruvalcaba, Washington/Alta Vista Assistant Principal (former Parras teacher)
As a reminder, the first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 31, 2016.
The Board of Education (Anita Avrick, David Witkin, Brad Waller, Brad Serkin, and Michael Christensen) and I welcome you to what is sure to be another highlighy successful year in the finest school district in the South Bay, Redondo Beach Unified School District.
Thank you for your continued support of our RBEF and PTA. You will hear more about both in the weeks ahead.
Steven Keller, Ed.D.
Proud Superintendent of Schools
