We are delighted and very pleased to welcome Leizel Legaspi as the first grade class teacher. 
 
Liezel T. Legaspi earned her B.A. in Classical Studies from California State University, Long Beach.  After graduating, she worked full-time in sales and tutored in the evenings.  Realizing that she found more happiness working with children, she changed career paths and pursued education.  She fulfilled all requirements for a Site Supervisor Permit in Early Childhood Education, and also completed a Latin internship at John F. Kennedy High School.  In her search for her niche, she found Golden Valley.

On the first Saturday in May, two eighth grade classes not only marked the arrival of spring by dressing in white, weaving flower headdresses, and dancing with bright ribbons around a maypole, but also marked and celebrated their long-standing community here at Golden Valley River School. Usually there is just one maypole and one eighth grade class dancing.  However, this year, the River School was fortunate to have two maypoles, one for each graduating eighth grade class, to celebrate, dance, and weave around in front of the school’s community.

On Tuesday, December 13th at 7:35pm, the San Juan Unified School District approved the charter renewal petition for the Orchard School. Two years ago the district staff did not recommend approval and so Orchard was given only two years as a compromise to prove itself. That changed on Tuesday night when the superintendent and staff recommended a five-year renewal and the board put it on its consent agenda. It was a unanimous vote!
