Our Vision

We all contribute to an interdependent, green community that promotes creativity, rigor and a growth mindset in preparing students for success.


School Messenger

Did you know that you have control of how you receive messages from Los Cerritos via School Messenger? Some families enjoy the recorded phone calls, but others prefer texts or emails instead. If you'd like to change your preferences, please click below to open my locker, which contains directions for doing so through your ParentVUE account. We want you to stay informed about current events, but in the way that best works for you.

We're looking forward to an AN AMAZING ADVENTURE this year. Life is a Journey and Learning is our Adventure Together, so get your passports to new ideas ready! It's almost time to take off... All aboard!!

Important Dates:

Sept 12th - ELAC and Q & A with the Principal at 9:15 AM

Sept 20th - Back to School Night at 5:30 PM (Minimum Day Dismissal)

Oct 18-26th - Book Fair

Oct 21st - Fall Fun Run

Oct 24-28th - Red Ribbon Week

Oct 28th - Trunk or Treat at Los Cerritos

Nov 1-8th - Elementary Parent Conferences (Minimum Day Dismissal)



Please check out our new uniform guidelines! Go to the menu above and select "Schedule/Uniforms," then "Uniform Policy" to see the changes. The teachers all voted with input from parents, and we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The most notable changes are that we will allow use of dark blue jeans (with no rips or marks) as bottoms, navy leggings (as long as the shirt worn with it is finger tip length) as bottoms, and we have lifted the restriction limiting the color of accessories (such as socks, tights, and hair bows/ties). These changes should make shopping easier for parents, and life a little more comfortable for our kids. On the other hand, one thing we're going to start tightening up on is the color of outerwear that we allow. Sweaters and sweatshirts will need to be navy blue or red, with no logo, or with Los Cerritos artwork. Winter jackets and raincoats of any color will be allowed over a navy or red sweater, but only while students are outside on the playground.

Parent VUE

Parent VUE:  A New Website for Parents (Un Nuevo sitio web para padres)
Parent VUE is a website that allows parents to view their children’s current and historical information, including daily attendance, grades, report cards, test scores, discipline, graduation status, preparation for college and more.  It is also a one-stop location for links to other parent services including School Loop and MySchoolBucks (School meal accounts).

With one simple activation, parents can view information on all of their children, from elementary school to high school.  Parents also will be able to update emergency card information electronically.

Weekly website challenge

Did you know the school website is full of fun and useful information?  

Check out our bell schedule, what school events are happening, PTA information, tips from the Green Team.

We are having a weekly raffle for the students.  They can look on the website, answer one or two questions and enter online for a chance to win a free popsicle at our Wednesday or Friday fruit popsicle sales.


Last week we kicked this green challenge off with flyers, but to stay with our green theme we've gone paperless! Search our website to answer the questions below and email them to roadrunner@lbschools.net by Friday, June 3rd, and one lucky student will win a delicious all fruit pop!

Our first winner, on May 27th, was Aidan from Mr. Zapata's class!! Congrats Aidan :-)

New Website navigation

We would like to make our school website a useful tool for parents and students.  Please note that we have changed the location of some of our information. Our calendar is now synced and appears on the homepage, PTA page and calendar page.

For parent information see the Resource page.

Take some time and click on each tab to see where different information is. 

Feedback on how to make this website more helpful please feel free to contact the school office.

Keep in Touch with Schoolloop

For texts and emails please make sure to sign up for Schoolloop. This is not an automatic notification you mush see Michael, the school Secretary, to be on the notification list.  

Schoolloop allows you to:

  • Receive school bulletins
  • Receive notices from the Principal, PTA and school
  • Notifies you of school events (picture day, minimum days, etc.)

To reduce cost and paper waste much of the school information now goes out electronically.
