Career Day at Piru!


We were proud to have our first Career Day at Piru Elementary School. Our counselors worked collaboratively to bring a variety of professionals to share their path to their career, highlights of their duties, and their personal rewards in career choice. We had a college representatives, military personnel, district technician, district nurse, district chef, Emergency Medical Technician, game warden, police officer, engineer and principal. The students truly enjoyed the presentations. We appreciate all of our guests participation!


4th Grade Field Trip To Santa Cruz Island

Our fourth graders had the amazing experience of attending Santa Cruz Island again this year. Would like to send out a big thanks to the National Forest Foundation for granting us the Every Kid in the Park Grant. This year's adventure was incredibly filled with dolphin and whale citings as part of the boat ride then interactions with the island fox, scrub jay and plant species native to the island. Park rangers were very attentive and taught our students so much about the island way of life.


Josh the Otter Visits Piru!

We had the pleasure of receiving a visit from Josh The Otter, Dr. Palazuelos, and the Fillmore Rotary Club. Josh's message was delivered by Dr. Palazuelos via the book Josh The Otter. Josh wanted to educate students on water safety in preparation for summer months. After enjoying the book, students recited the Josh The Otter Water Safety Pledge with all our guests. It was a very memorable experience for our TK and K students, teachers, staff, and parents!

Piru Kindness Initiative

To finish off the school year we launched our Piru Kindness Initiative. The initiative was debuted at an assembly to define what it means to be kind, set expectations, and announce rewards. As part of the initiative, students will get kindness tokens. Those tokens will be rewarded with Otter Pops each Friday. At the same assembly we announced our Video Truck Contract where students need to earn points with their good behavior to be able to attend the fun event in June.
