Liberty gives back to a friend in need with Change for Cynthia As fifth-grader Cynthia Aguirre battles cancer, her friends at Liberty Elementary School are doing what they can to help. Each and every student at Liberty, from Pre-K-6th grade gave what they could during the “Change for Cynthia” fundraising campaign and on Friday, Cynthia’s classmates presented her grandparents with a check for nearly $5,000.00. Students mowed lawns, washed dishes, donated their allowances and sacrificed their piggy banks to help. Click the headline above to read more about this incredible story.
In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.
