A reminder about Uniforms & Morning Drop-Off procedures:
  
Just a quick reminder that the length of all shorts, skorts, skirts and jumpers
should be from the top of the knee to no higher than 4" above the knee. Many uniforms
have hems that can be let down or feel free to visit our TLC closet.

Cars should pull up to the crosswalk for student drop off and not allow students to exit their car past the rectory. Students should always be with an adult when walking in the parking lot. Our first bell rings at 7:55am and that is a great goal time for students to be on campus. This allows them the time to unpack and chat with their friends before the day starts. Coming from a family of four children separated by only five years, I know that getting everyone dressed and in the car can be a big task so there is a five-minute grace period before students are marked tardy at 8:00am. This also allows for things that are out of our control such as the timing of the light at Ventura Blvd. or a backup of cars in the line. If you plan on arriving by 7:55am, your children will still be here on time even if there is a bit of a backup.

Take Note: As you have seen by now, our front gate is fully operational. 
While it is open during our high traffic times, it is locked the rest of the day and during the Extended Day Program. 
You will need to call the EDP phone in order to get in after hours.
In case you lost it, the number for the EDP phone is
805.469.1072
Be welcome to call a few minutes before you arrive so we can have your children packed up and waiting for you 
without even having to get out of your car! 

¡Bienvenidos! Hola, yo soy la señora Fede

The Spanish program at Saint Mary Magdalen School begins in Kindergarten where students learn many concepts including colors, basic numbers and days of the week, as well as songs, games and traditions like Navidad, Dia de Reyes and Carnaval.

The program continues through 8th grade where students work with conversations, translations and conjugations of verbs in the present, past and future tense. Elementary Grades K-4th has weekly Spanish lessons. The program for 5-8th grade includes two hours per week of Spanish instruction.

I created a set of practical workbooks based on the National Standards for Learning a Second Language. The goal of our program is to teach the language, the culture and to give our students the ability to develop the necessary tools to be successful in high school Spanish.

Carpool & Parking Procedures:
 
CARPOOL: Parents, please do not form a carpool line prior to 2:30 p.m. (1:45 on Wednesday and 11:55 on minimum days)
 
At 2:30 p.m. you may begin to form a double carpool line in front of the chapel sacristy.
Please do not pull forward past the sacristy until directed by a school staff member. 
Cars leaving the parish center should be able to exit with ease.
 
Also, please do not talk on your cell phone or leave your cars unattended in the carpool line.

 
RESERVED PARKING: Just a reminder - There are 2 reserved parking spaces on campus. These reserved spots were purchased by families at the Pennies from Heaven auction.
Please do not park in these spots at anytime, day or night - not even for one minute!
 
This one minute rule also applies to the 5 designated priest spots in front of the rectory and the faculty parking spots on Chapel Drive.  Thank you for your assistance with this!

EXTENDED CARE & SPORTS: Please make sure that if you are picking up students from the Extended Day Program or sports practice that you park only in marked stalls. Do not park in red fire lanes or in spots that are not marked. We need to keep the traffic lanes clear for vehicles passing through after school hours.
