Home Sweet Home is a Great Place for Learning

“Homework” might not be one of the most welcomed words in a student’s vocabulary, but it’s a necessity of their learning process. Homework helps reinforce material and skills that are taught in class, introduce material for future lessons and teach students how to apply learned skills to new or multiple subjects.

La Paloma Central is Joining the Kindness Corridor!

On November 6th & 7th, volunteers will create a 10 ft. x 10 ft. mosaic tile mural on campus.

The Kindness Corridor is a network of tile and mirror public art projects that symbolize community connection and the commitment to practicing kindness. Throughout Tucson, artists, students and community members have collaborated to create beautiful kindness themed murals that celebrate the philosophy of Ben’s Bells. Ben’s Bells was born out of a tragedy in Tucson but now inspires kindness and kindness education nationwide.

A special letter to LPA Central Parents from Superintendent

Dear Parents,

We know you have options when it comes to your child’s education, and I want to thank you for partnering with us. We truly value our students and parents and believe that all children have the ability to be successful both in and outside our school.

Giving our teachers a pat on the back

If you ask your child what makes him or her successful at our school, he or she will probably tell you about our excellent teachers. What students take away from a successful education usually centers around a strong connection with teachers who inspire them to achieve their dreams.

Teach and Enrich: Our plan to utilize Beyond Textbooks

This year, La Paloma is proud to begin using Beyond Textbooks. As Common Core standards are further implemented across the state, we are rising to meet the challenge. We want to help our students succeed by introducing this innovative program.

La Paloma Tackle football has started!

Monday thru Wednesday – 5:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Getting ready for the new school year

I don’t know about you, but I am already a little tired of seeing and hearing the back-to-school hype on TV and the radio. It’s true that school resumes at La Paloma Academy on Thursday, July 31st, so it is time to start getting geared up for your children to resume their educations.

It’s my belief that a key to preparations for starting a new school year should be getting your children organized prior to the start of school. I know that the teachers and staff at La Paloma Academy are in the midst of getting organized, as well for the start of the new school year.

The La Paloma Advantage

We are always looking for ways in which to improve academic achievement, especially in the areas of reading and mathematics. According to recent research, programs that were designed to enhance social and emotional support among children also improved academic performance.
