Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
These are the last few weeks at Repetto School for our eighth graders, many of whom have been at Repetto for the last nine years. We wish them a fond farewell and the best of luck as they transition to high school. We know they will do great things during the next four years and beyond, and will continue to make their Repetto School Family proud.
As the principal of Repetto School, I too will be transitioning to a new and unfounded territory...retirement. I leave Repetto with mixed emotions. It has been such a privilege to be a member of such an outstanding school that it is very difficult to say good-bye. But for everything there is a season, and I leave fully confident that Repetto will continue to soar with the eagles. I leave Repetto in a good place. Test scores are soaring, enrollment is increasing, staff morale is high and parent participation is rising. I pass the baton to Ms. Carin Gasca, who has been Repetto’s assistant principal this past year. Ms. Gasca is an experienced and respected educator who, I am convinced, will continue to move Repetto forward and upward!
I have enjoyed these past three years at Repetto immensely and will miss the amazing group of highly qualified teachers and support staff, the efficient office personnel, the caring yard supervisors, the dedicated and concerned parents and of course, the wonderful students committed to learning. I would like to extend a special thank you to Mrs. Kathy Taggart, Instructional Specialist, who walked with me daily through this journey. I could not have made it without her.
To our current kindergarten through seventh grade students, I wish you a successful end of the school year and an exciting, but also restful summer break. Enjoy this precious time with friends and family. I wish you all blessings and happiness.
~Kathy La Piana, principal

LCAP Expenditures (LCFF Funding)
This school year, our students and parents are reaping the benefits of our LCAP allocation in the following ways:

Permit forms will be sent home to current permit students in early April. Please return completed application to the office no later than May 12th.

California Accountability Model and School Dashboard
The California Accountability Model and School Dashboard is California’s new accountability and continuous improvement system. This system provides information on how local educational agencies and schools are meeting the needs of our state’s diverse student population, based on a concise set of measures. The dashboard takes the place of our school’s past API score and contains reports that display the performance of local educational agencies (LEAs), schools and student group on a set of state and local measures to assist in identifying strengths, weaknesses and areas that need improvement. For more information, go to cde.ca.gov and click on California School Dashboard Reports.
Fresh Start 2017: This free program is for current 8th graders starting high school in August 2017. It is a two-week program (July 17th – 27th) designed to help students transition to high school. Students will learn how to manage stress at home and at school, make decisions and understand conflict resolution, identify school support systems and resources and deal with anxiety, depression and other issues. Call Gateway to Success at (626) 943-3410 to reserve a spot.

Repetto PTA: We regret to inform you that Repetto PTA’s charter has been revoked by the California State PTA until further notice. There were issues with tax filings dating back to 2012 and until these issues are resolved and a new charter has been approved and instated, Repetto PTA cannot conduct any business. Some PTA sponsored events such as the college fair and book fair may be cancelled. However, most of our PTA-subsidized school activities such as field trips and Class of 2016 promotion activities will not be affected. Parent volunteers are working diligently to restore our PTA to normal operations and minimize impacts to programs and activities. We have met with representatives from both the Alhambra Council PTA and 1st District PTA and are confident that these issues can be rectified and our PTA charter can be restored as soon as fall of 2016. Thank you everyone for your patience.
Box Tops for Education - Don’t forget to keep collecting Box Tops for Education. Every Box Top you turn in to the office to raise money for the school.

Attendance Works: show that elementary students with good attendance read well by the end of third grade and middle school students with good attendance pass important courses. The benefits of good attendance continue throughout life: high school students stay on track to graduate, college students earn a degree, and adults have successful jobs. For more information, visit www.attendanceworks.org or speak with Olga Velazquez, Gateway Advisor, in the school office.
Responsible for Safely Getting Your Child to School: Parents need to be extra careful driving around a school zone and to obey fundamental traffic laws. MPPD proactively enforces traffic laws around the school. We encourage parents to use the valet drop off lane. Do NOT stop alongside other cars or double park. Try to drop off on the same side of the street as the school (or remind your child to use the crosswalk). Never have your child dodge traffic or cross between parked cars. Your cooperation will ensure everyone’s safety.
