District Things!

Take a survey to support the arts!

Participate in free parent classes!

Parents, we need everyone to take the LCAP survey. If band and color guard is important to you and your child we need your voice represented in the LCAP. At the end of the survey you can comment about supporting band and color guard and making sure it is part of the funding for our district. Without your voice, the district will think that band & color guard isn't a priority. Please take the time to fill out this survey! 

 

Our district offers a series of free classes called "parent academy". Classes are on Monday nights at PACE elementary (located across the street from Bosco HS/behind the Bellflower Aquatic Center off of Bellflower Blvd) from 6-8pm. Click below for the flyer! As a parent myself, these classes sound worth every minute!
