Volunteer Reception--our Amazing 9th Grade Students
Top of the Class
The goal of ALL Pacific Law Academy (PLA) Tiger's is to attend a four-year university upon high school graduation. PLA provides all A-G course admission requirements to enter a college or university. Students have small classes, knowledgeable instructors, and tutoring when needed. Extracurricular activities are available. Students at Pacific Law Academy have the best of both worlds, a small learning community with the benefits of large school opportunities.
Back to School Night Schedule
Our annual Back to School Night will be Thursday, August 28th from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for you to meet with your students' teachers; however, if you want to discuss your individual student, you will need to schedule an appointment as this is the teacher's opportunity to inform parents of the academic expectations in each subject area.
Parents will follow their student schedule as follows:
5:00 - 5:30 Opening remarks and information presentation by Ms. Sanderson (PAWS, WASC, Title I)
5:30 - 5:37 Period 1
5:41 - 5:48 Period 2
5:52 - 5:59 Period 3
6:03 - 6:10 Period 4
6:14 - 6:21 Period 6

We look forward to seeing everyone!!!
Cornell Note Strategies-Campus Expectation
What to Wear to Work Wednesday!!
It is the expectation at PLA that every Wednesday, ALL students will come to school "Dressed for Success". This is a tradition on our campus. So...what should your student wear? The best rule of thumb is to have an outfit that one might wear to a job interview. Students are allowed to wear khaki slacks, collared "polo" style shirts, button down shirts, appropriate length skirts, slacks, blouses, etc.
Are you interested in Work Experience?!!
If you have a job, you must also have a Work Permit. Work permits must be obtained at the start of a new job and renewed at the start of each new school year. Current work permits will expire soon and must be renewed before the expiration date. Work Permits issued last school year expire on August 22nd. Work Permits issued during the summer expire on August 15th. See Ms. Yescas, Work Experience Coordinator, as soon as possible to renew your Work Permit.
Students who have a job can enroll in Work Experience Education, an elective course which combines paid employment with classroom instruction. Work Experience students meet with Ms. Yescas, once a week at school and can earn up to 10 credits per semester and a total of 20 credits per year. If you are interested in finding a job, Ms. Yescas can assist you with job leads, creating a resume, and equip you with the skills you need to get and keep a job.
If you would like more information, stop by Stagg’s main office to see Ms. Yescas before school or during lunch.
