Lanai Weekly: January 25, 2016

Principal’s Message:

Dear Parents,

The annual School Experience Survey from LAUSD is going home this week. Please take this survey to share what you think about your and your child’s experiences at Lanai Road.  Students in grades 3-5 and all staff will also be taking the survey. You may take the hard copy of the survey or take it online at http://achieve.lausd.net/schoolexperiencesurvey.  If you have multiple children at the school, you will only be receiving one  hard copy of the survey.  We appreciate your feedback!  All surveys must be submitted by February 11, 2016.  Please return all hard copies of the survey to your child’s teacher.  Thank you!

Mr. Hansen
