Hello Hollygrove Families,

We hope you all had a great week. We know for a great many of you, it has probably been quite a roller coaster at home watching all of the election news. We appreciate your dedication and perseverance you are offering your child at home during these uncertain times.

We would like to thank the community for your understanding as we engaged in our own staff professional development day on Wednesday, November 4th.  Our faculty across the 4 sites came together (on Zoom) to hear an engaging and inspiring talk by author, educator and international key speaker, Angela Maiers. Angela was like a bottle of positivity and offered a battery of online engagement activities. While we had great takeaways from the work we did on Wednesday, we also know that many of our Hollygrove teachers have already been doing many of these researched based best practices that Angela shared. We're grateful for this time and opportunity to continue our growth as educators. We are also so thankful to work with such a talented group of whole-child educators that are thoughtful, curious, dedicated, and caring!

Next, though it's never too late to participate, we know our Annual Giving Drive has come to an end. We want to thank the community for your generous participation and for all you do for Larchmont Charter School. We could not do what we do without the parent support that you all bring. Thank you to Alisa Strathearn and Evan Salama for all of their leadership and to all of the incredible volunteers who stepped up to support the Annual Giving Drive!

Finally, we want to thank all of you in the community who have already signed up and/or donated to support the Thanksgiving Drive that supports Uplift Family Services.  If you are interested in learning more about how the Los Angeles Office of Uplift Families supports the area, please click here.   Eleanor Hong (Josephine, 3rd and Sam, K) has been working hard to coordinate this effort and we are incredibly grateful for her support.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your room parent or to Eleanor directly at eleanorehong@hotmail.com


We do have a couple of reminders about the coming week:

  • Reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Wednesday, 11/11 in honor of Veteran's Day!

  • Breakfast/Lunch Service for this coming week has been moved to THURSDAY, 11/12 from 11am -1 PM. This is also the day/time to drop off donations for the Uplift Family Thanksgiving Basket Drive.

  • LOOP Meeting on Thursday, 11/12 @ 6 PM: Please join our LOOP (Larchmont Organization of Parents) team for our monthly meeting on 11/12 @ 6PM. This month we are talking about the upcoming Virtual World Fair which is going to be a meaningful and fun community event. Join our LOOP chairs, Jason Daley Kennedy and Jessica Hooper, to hear what's on deck for parent volunteering at Hollygrove. We'll send out more information later in the week, but we hope you can join us for some adult time on Thursday. Remember, you can join however you'd like-- camera off, camera on, on mute the whole time...whatever works for you and your schedule!
