6th Grade Culmination
Our sixth grade culmination will be held on Thursday, June 10th at 9:00 am in the auditorium. Due to limited space, students have been provided tickets to invite up to four guest. Guest will not be allowed entry onto the campus without a ticket. Children 3 years of age and under do no require a ticket to be admitted to the culmination, however they must sit on an adult's lap and may not occupy a seat.
Report Cards will be distributed to the students on Friday, June 10th. Children that are absent on the last day of school will get their report card sent home via mail.
Please notify the office if you are moving out of the area or if your child is not returning to 156th Street Elementary next year so that we can prepare your child's transfer form by June 10th. It is very important that we get an accurate count of returning students in order to plan for classes for next year. Thank you for your cooperation.
The school office will be closed June 25th - July 22nd, for summer vacation and will reopen for new student registration on July 25, 2016. The first day of school will be Tuesday, August 16th. Please understand that per LAUSD policy, students that do not show up on the first day of schools due to family vacations, out of town, illness, etc. are considered absent. A note must be sent with your son/daughter on their first day back to school explaining the reason for their absence(s).
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) & Kindergarten pre-registration packets are now available in the main office for enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year. Eligible kindergarten students are those who reach their 5th birthday on or before September 1st. Students who turn 5 years old between September 2nd and December 2nd will not be eligible for the general kindergarten class but will have the option of attending a Transitional Kindergarten Program. Please come in to pick up a packet and make an appointment.
Lost and Found
Please label your child's belongings. The lost and found rack is
available in the auditorium for parent inspection throughout the year.
All unclaimed items will be packaged and donated to charity
by June 10th.
Please Call Before Noon
If you have a message for your child's teacher or would like to pick up your child's homework due to an absence, please call the school before noon. Teachers check their mailbox during their lunchtime and this will ensure that the message gets delivered timely and also minimizes classroom interruptions. Thanks!
During the warm weather, let's continue to be mindful of the school policy around appropriate school attire. Students should come to school looking clean, neat, and ready to learn. Please do not send student to school in beach attire, including midriff/halter tops or tops/dresses with thin spaghetti straps. Skirts and shorts hems should be at a suitable length for school. A general guide is that skirts and shorts should extend to or below the students' fingertips when their arms are held to their sides. Shoes should be safe for outdoor play and physical education, no open toe sandals or heels.
Cell Phone Policy
Students may not use cell phones during the school day and they must be turned off. Cell phones should be kept either in their backpacks or in a closed pocket until after school. Phones that are taken out or turned on during the school day will be confiscated and must be picked up in the Main Office by a parent/guardian at dismissal time. After school, children enrolled in the Youth Services or Youth Development Program must ask a supervising adult for permission to use the phone. The school is not responsible for damage, lost or stolen cell phones.
