2014 Blue Ribbon School
La Entrada Middle School was named one of the 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools. Only 337 schools in the United States were recognized with this prestigious award this year, with La Entrada being one of only 25 middle schools being included in this designation.
Founded in 1982, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where academic achievement has significantly improved. La Entrada has been awarded this recognition once before. Congratulations to our students, teachers and families for their efforts.
La Entrada is an inclusive community of dedicated staff, students, and parents engaged in maximizing the academic, social, ethical and physical growth of every student. Our collaborative community embraces the ideals of critical thinking, life-long learning, and global responsibility in a safe and respectful environment.
This year, La Entrada's Expect Respect Club will be leading the Halloween Candy Collection efforts called, "Sweet Sacrifice". Here's how it works:After students trick-or-treat this Friday, look over your candy and decide if you'd like to donate some of it to a good cause. Pack up your Halloween Candy and bring it to school next Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Candy will be collected before school by the Expect Respect Club members.The donated candy will then be shipped off to our military troops to help brighten their day!
So, don't forget, if you would like to donate some of your Halloween Candy to a good cause, please bring it to school next Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday before school and an Expect Respect Club student will collect it from you!
Also, please remember to always Trick-or-Treat with a friend/family member and bring a flashlight. Be safe everyone!
