Back to School: Porter Ranch Style

PRNC Board Members Becky Leveque and Sue Hammarlund spent Friday, January 8 walking Northridge Middle School and Sunny Brae Elementary to see how the preparations were coming along for our students to go back to school on Tuesday, after getting to visit the campuses on Monday. This is Sue's report:

The school relocation is an amazing thing to see. Due to my 38 years of teaching in LAUSD, I was a little apprehensive about how the transfer would work out. On Friday, Becky Leveque and I went to see how things were progressing.

We were amazed at how fast and well the transistion has occurred. Space for both schools was carved out of existing campuses. The classrooms which are all new and shiny looked great. The kids will come to school and find their own desk just how it was left, bright and shiny.

I was so impressed by how all LAUSD employees worked to create a new school for the children. All of the logistics and educational personal worked together to make this happen. They had no VACATION, except for Christmas day.

When you send your child to the new schools tell them that this is an exciting adventure that they can tell their other friends about. They are involved in a unique experience. It could almost be called the Miracle of Porter Ranch.  Out of the mess we have experienced, this is a glowing light.

We all owe a great deal of thanks to both Mary Melvin and Victoria Littlejohn for making so.
