April is “Public Schools Month”
The Temple City Unified School District and the Temple City High Twelve Club proudly co-sponsor the District’s 16th Annual Public Schools Recognition Night on April 20, 2009 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., at Memoli Hall on the campus of Longden Elementary School.
Students attending each of the District’s seven schools will receive awards presented by the Temple City High Twelve Club. Award winners, their families, and invited guests will enjoy a light dinner at 6:00 p.m. The community is invited to attend the Awards Ceremony beginning at 7:00 p.m.
America’s public schools have traditionally had the responsibility for instilling a love of learning in our children and teaching them the skills to pursue satisfying, productive lives. Public schools also cultivate in children a love of freedom and an appreciation of the benefits of living in a democratic society. Public schools play a key role in helping children learn about the richness of cultural diversity – the interweave of people from all nations – which gives our society its strength and flexibility.
The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of California founded Public Schools Month in 1920 to celebrate the contributions made by public schools to the American way of life. In light of the fundamental service our public schools have provided over the years in helping millions of young Americans find success, and striving to continue high academic achievement in the future, it is fitting that this year’s theme for Public Schools Month is “Today is the beginning of a better tomorrow”.
Please join the Board of Education, the Temple City High Twelve Club, and District Administration in celebrating Public Schools Month! The District encourages parents and community members to take a few minutes to share a special “thank you” to acknowledge staff members at children’s school sites. As a team, classroom teachers, principals, and support staff work together to provide children with successful educational experiences.
Parents and community members are also invited and encouraged to attend upcoming Open House events at:
Longden Elementary School April 1, 2009
Oak Avenue Intermediate School April 2, 2009
Emperor Elementary School April 22, 2009
