President’s Weekly Message
Good Monday morning to you, 25th, 2019—
This is going to be a short week as far as classes go, because we will be starting our Spring break this week. Starting on Thursday, March 28th, there will be no classes. The break will extend through Friday April 5th. Classes will resume on Saturday April 6th. Once again NO CLASSES between March 28th and April 5th.
CESAR CHAVEZ HOLIDAY
Now while there will be no classes, the college will remain open for services except for Monday April 1st which is the Cesar Chavez holiday. So if you want to visit the Bridges to Success office to enroll, or you have a need for student services, we will be open except for Monday, April 1st. Just no classes.
We want to remind you on Tuesdays we have resumed our Food Pantry partnership with the St. Francis Center. Every Tuesday from 10:30am to 12:30pm we are offering free fresh produce, food items and drinks to any student who brings his or her student ID card. In addition, there will be a representative from WIC, if you have any questions. We hope as many of you as possible take advantage of this program. Remember to bring a bag.
AB 705: NEW PATHWAY FOR ENGLISH AND MATH
The major coming changes in our math and English class sequences is based on Assembly Bill (AB) 705. The changes may be confusing to some of you, so here are several videos to explain the innovation. Take a little time, to view the videos and learn more about the state-wide and LATTC efforts to move you toward completion.
In addition, English department faculty member George Blake has put together several videos meant to help students access the department instructors and other services. Take a look at them.
“FIND SOMETHING FOR YOU” (UMOJA)
“WE WANT TO SEE YOU BE BRAVE” (English Dept. Welcome)
I want to give you an early heads-up on this year’s LATTC Job Expo. Now is the time to get your resume prepared so you can engage the 80 employers who attend. Mark your calendars.
LARS BURKHARDT MEMORIAL
I’m sure many of you remember him on campus. Sadly, LATTC sheriff’s office Lars Burkhardt recently passed away after a lengthy battle with an aggressive cancer. We will celebrate his life at a gathering on campus on Thursday April 4th in TE101. It will begin at 9:00am.
Please enjoy the upcoming time off, so get that homework done early. I hope you get to spend time with the ones you love and find some relaxation. Remember our offices will be open if you have any questions or need some support.
