LETTERS LADERA ELEMENTARY A WONDERFUL SCHOOL.

This is in response to the July 11 Board of Education meeting at the Conejo Valley Unified School District regarding the boundary change affecting Lang Ranch and Ladera Elementary schools. I would just like to share my feelings with those individuals who expressed their disappointment regarding this boundary change.

I am in my fifth year as a Ladera Elementary School parent who would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new students due to the recent boundary change and would like to share with you a few positive things Ladera has to offer. Ladera families are more than just schoolmates, room volunteers, PTA members, teachers and administrators. We are a family, cohesive in our goal of quality education and dedicated to building happy, moral children.

The principal and teaching staff are hard-working, warm, caring individuals who are unbending in their pursuit of academic excellence while developing positive self-esteem and emotional well-being in all students. These are people who take the time to return your calls (sometimes at 9 p.m. if necessary), or speak to you before or after school, or just say hi and inquire about the well-being of your children, years after they have left their classroom.

Ladera is truly blessed with a great office staff. You can enter the Ladera office any time of day under any circumstance and you'll be greeted with a warm smile and an eagerness to help. At any evening or after-school event you will find the wonderful staff helping out or interacting with the kids and parents.

Ladera parents are active participants in their children's education and are proud members of a hard-working, dedicated PTA.

I am proud to call myself a Ladera parent.
