TEACHER AND STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK
The teachers and staff extend a warm thank you to the PTO and the parents for a wonderful week of treats. We truly feel appreciated!
NEIGHBORHOOD CLEANUP DAY - THANKS
A big thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday morning, 4/29 to help with the Emmanuel Lutheran/Laurel Hall Neighborhood Cleanup Day! 42 people showed up, consisting of students, parents, teachers, staff, and congregational members. We cleaned up Laurel Canyon, Oxnard and Lankershim. The amount of trash picked up was impressive. Then it was time for pizza and fellowship, and the satisfied feeling of a job well done. Thanks again everyone, you were fantastic! Keep an eye out for the next time we have this event. Tom Reilly
