Monday Message for May 20, 2018

Message from the Director

Dear parents and staff,

Thank you for your love and support at the LACOE vote last week. Even though they voted “no,” this does not mean we are done. Change does not come easily sometimes and it has been made clear, now more than ever, that we need to keep fighting to redesign education. I don’t give up that easily, especially when it’s for something I believe in, strongly.

Friday night’s variety show made it even more clear that our kids need a safe place to be free to think and inspired to lead.

Please join me for Coffee with Kaufman, tomorrow, Monday at ILS at 8:30 a.m.  Let’s talk about our move to Castaic and how we can continue to give our children the education they deserve.

Yours in solidarity,

Mrs. Kaufman
