If you are interested in volunteering, please see Yazmin Cruz, our Community Representative,  in the main office.  

Volunteers are needed for: 

  • Drop and Go Valet Program
  • Breakfast in the Classroom

If you can give 30 minutes one or two days a week from 7:45-8:15 we could really use your help.

Remember you must complete an application in the main office and have a current TB test. All volunteers must have a current Volunteer Application on file in the office along with proof of a current TB test (within 6 months of volunteering).  The TB test is good for 4 years.   Any volunteer who works more than 16 hours a week must have a Live Scan completed through LAUSD.


The Drop and Go zone will be located on 247th St. The zone will be clearly marked with orange cones. To enter the zone you must approach the school from Narbonne Ave. We are asking that the Moon Ave. gate be for pedestrian traffic only.

For this program to be successful we need your cooperation. Please make sure to remember:


  • This is for your child's safety so please be patient
  • Have backpacks ready
  • Have your child sitting on the right passenger side of the vehicle
  • Say your goodbyes before you enter the Drop and Go Zone
  • Never let your child exit your vehicle outside of the zone

All LAUSD schools are participating in the annual School Experience Survey.  One parent survey was printed for each family and given to the oldest child in the family for the parent/ guardian to complete.  Parents may also complete the survey online.

Go to: http://schoolsurvey.lausd.net 

You will be asked to enter a ten digit ID located on the paper copy of the survey. 

If you do not have the 10-digit code, do the following:

  • Enter "0000" followed by your child's 6-digit birthdate.  For example, if your child was born November 2, 2007, enter "0000110207" and click "Next"
  • On the next page, select "Lomita Math/Science Magnet School" from the drop-down list and click "Next" to begin the survey
  • After you click "Submit", if possible print the last page.  The paper you print verifies the survey was complete.

We encourage parents to complete the survey and return it to their child's teacher by Friday, March 27, 2015.  Complete and tear off below verifying you completed the survey and return it to your child's teacher.  The survey can be completed using Smart Phones.

Students whose parent/guardian completes the survey will receive a special treat from the teacher.

Thank you for your time.




Dear Parents, page1image7008 page1image7168

     March is a very busy month. Please check the calendar of upcoming events below (read below) and make sure to check your child’s backpack for flyers, listen to our Connect Ed phone messages, check our website and read our emails. We invite you all to attend our annual Open House and Science Fair on March 17th. Our Open House event will start at 6:00 p.m. with the teachers’ opening of their classroom doors as well as the auditorium opening for your visitation to our Science Fair. You will have the flexibility of visiting the auditorium and the classrooms any time between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m.

     We are continuing our series of Common Core State Standards Parent Workshops. Our third session is scheduled for March 25th at 6pm and the topic will be Math. Parents of all grade levels are welcome at this workshop since we will have a general session followed by grade level specific break-out sessions. Please be aware that this evening of learning is for adults only, no children will be admitted.

     All students in grades 3-5 will be taking the new Standards Based Assessment in April and May so please become as knowledgeable as possible about it by attending our workshops and going online to http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp where you can find not only practice tests but can link to other sources of information. Since this assessment must be taken on a computer or iPad, only 4-5 classes will be testing at one time. All third graders will test in the Computer Lab while 4th and 5th graders will test in their own classrooms using iPads. Please be aware that on testing days, students will be expected to eat breakfast before the morning bell rings (the old fashin way) so they may start taking the test as soon as possible after they enter the classroom. This way, they will all have sufficient time each day of testing to complete a section, or as much of a section as possible. The test is not timed so students will have the amount of time they need to complete each section.

Our last Early Dismissal Tuesday will be March 24th so please make sure to mark your calendars to pick up your child at 2:40pm every day of the week beginning the week of April 7th.

I wish your children and your family a wonderful and restful spring break.
