St. Odilia School is off and running! We are very excited about the new year, and our students are ready to learn while having fun. Many of our programs will feature the latest technology which will prepare students for the future. Students in Transitional Kinder, Kindergarten, and 8th grade were able to attend early orientation last week to prepare for the new year. This year, we are happy to announce the latest implementation in the primary grades includes departmentalization. Students in grades 1 through 5 will now have the support of several different teachers just like middle school. We would also like to give a big warm welcome to Ms. Myra Menendez, our new 6th grade middle school teacher. Ms. Menendez brings a huge amount of teaching experience to our school, and she is a wonderful addition to our faculty. By the way, she is a UCLA graduate, go Bruins! Included in our Science program this year is computer coding for grades 1 through 8, so parents get ready for animation created by your children! We would also like to give a big round of applause to our new students; you are now officially St. Odilia Lions!
