Consider what programs and activities you think would be helpful to bring to our students. You can include interventions, bilingual books, workshops for parents (please tell us what kinds of workshops), or any other ideas you would like.  We appreciate and value your feedback.  You may complete the paper copy enclosed, and then drop it off at the office, or send pictures of your completed forms to LFlores@mylusd.org.   You may also complete the form electronically by scanning the code below.
