Middle School Band Visit


Mr. White and his band students visited each elementary site today. Their mission was to determine our fifth grade students interest in pursing band as part of their Fillmore Middle School experience. Our Piru students were excited and very interested in what our guests had to say! Many of them were former Piru students. It was a joy to see their continued music appreciation that begun in our Piru Band program.


Piru Christmas Parade

Piru Elementary was very excited to participate in the Piru Christmas Parade. We participated in the parade using our beautiful Christmas sleigh that was built for a Piru Parade about three decades ago. It was refurbished by our Kinder Parent Group. Representing Piru Elementary School at the parade were Mrs. Lanning and Ms. Uribe’s kinder students, and additional Piru students at all levels. Staff participating included Mrs. Lanning, Ms. Uribe, Mrs. Louth, Mr. Raymond, and Principal Diana Vides. Behind our students is our Piru Elementary band comprised of our 4/5th grade students under the direction of Mr. Ben Morey, our Band Teacher.

Apple Leadership and Learning Conference

Piru Technology Leadership Team participated in the Apple Leadership and Learning Conference that was sponsored by Apple. This is a way to continue the work that was brought about by the Apple Connect Ed Grant where students receive one to one devices. We learned so much at the conference and came back inspired. In order to share the learning, we have have had two staff meetings and a full day of training dedicated to imparting the knowledge from the conference to our teachers to further deepen the grant implementation at our school.
