Here's what's happening at Glendale cluster schools:
A dedicated group of about two dozen Cerritos parents are working
hard at the school this year, helping teachers in the classroom,
volunteering in the computer lab and school library and taking on a
variety of other jobs as needed.
PTA parents are planning a full slate of activities for Red Ribbon
Week, which begins Monday. As part of the observance, students will
plant hundreds of red, white and blue flower bulbs, an effort that
surely will pay out big dividends in the spring. The school
foundation, meanwhile, is readying plans for its annual fall
reception, to be at the Los Angeles Zoo in November.

Congratulations to fourth-graders Gabriela Castillo and Renee

Ribbon Week observances.

Students in the primary grades are about to begin weekly
instruction in music appreciation, singing, rhythm and note reading
