District Preschool/ETK Advisory Committee, DPAC, is designed for parents of preschool and extended kindergarten children. At DPAC meetings, information is shared regarding the PS/ETK programs, our goals, assessments and developmental expectations. It is in these meetings that parents learn how the PS/ETK programs align to the State Standards for kindergarten and why either a PS or ETK program will prepare their child(ren) for kindergarten. It is my hope that parents will share their thoughts and ideas about how to make our preschool program more inclusive while building family involvement and quality. Additionally, we might organize some optional low-cost family activities/excursions that support learning for the entire family. The DPAC meetings will be held virtually or in Longfellow's Parent Center, Room 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on October 21, December 16, Febdruary 24, and April 21. Principals have asked the school-site community liaisons to invite at least one interested participant from each of the Azusa Unified School District preschool sites.
English Language Advisory Committee
This committee is composed of parents whose children speak another language other than English as their first language. This committee is designed to allow parents to give advice and input into the programs we currently have or need to incorporate at Longfellow Elementary to help their children be as successful as possible while learning a new language ( English).
Any parent/caregiver is welcome to attend these meetings; however, as we select a chairperson for this committee, he/she must have a child enrolled/designated as an English Learner.
Be a parent volunteer!
Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to volunteer in the classroom and attend field trips. Parents/guardians who wish to attend field trips must be fingerprinted as arranged through the Azusa Unified School District and clearance verified before attendance on a field trip is granted. No exceptions will be made. Parents/guardians who volunteer develop a stronger bond with their child and are more enlightened about how their child is developing.
Milestones matter! Track your child’s milestones from age 2 months to 5 years with CDC’s easy-to-use illustrated checklists; get tips from CDC for encouraging your child’s development; and find out what to do if you are ever concerned about how your child is developing.
From birth to age 5, your child should reach milestones in how he or she plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves. Photos and videos in this app illustrate each milestone and make tracking them for your child easy and fun!
