Principal's Message

Greetings Bunche Bear Parents!

Our staff is ready to open our doors and serve our students in a face-to-face environment. The first day of school is August 18th @8:00a-2:30p. Our goal is to continue to grow our students in every capacity.  Face to face instruction is the only option for instruction, any unforeseen updates will be posted on our website or parentsquare. 

The first day of face-to-face campus instruction is full of so many emotions! We greatly appreciate your patience as we work through protocols and find our groove with procedures and routines. 

It is our mission to run things as normal as possible, and ensure our students feel safe and comfortable at school. Parents are now allowed on campus, but must report to the front office. Only kInder parents will be allowed to walk students to class or enter any classrooms on the 1st day for no more than 10 minutes. If your child arrives after 8:00a, they are to stand behind their cones and staff will greet your students and walk them to where they are supposed to go. 

This year we have 1 teacher per grade level, except 1st grade. If your child’s teacher is a combo class, I have attached the information to this letter. Please identify your child’s teacher below by their grade level:

Kindergarten- Ms. Murphy
Kinder/1stgrade combo- Ms. Khan
1st grade- Ms. Willingham
2nd grade- Ms. West
3rd grade- Mr. Corona
4th grade- Muhammad
5th grade- Mr. Rivas (Sub)
6th grade-Mr. Martinez
7th/8th grade ELA/Soc. Studies-Ms. Dantzler
7th/8th grade Math/Science-Ms. Curlin

Classes will also be posted on the easel outside the front office. 

Communication is key! We all want what is best for our students, that is the Bunche Bear way! Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns @310-898-6120 7:30a-4:00p Monday-Friday to our secretary Ms. Del Real.
