8/18 Principal's Community Update

08.18.22 - Greene Principal's Community Update

Dear Greene Families,

I hope this message finds you well.  I would like to tell you what a joy it has been to work with our students. They are amazing young people who I truly enjoy speaking with and getting to know. I love seeing all of the smiles as I walk around campus.  As I observe the various groups of friends sitting together at lunch or visiting in the halls, I can see the wonderful connection they have with one another.  

In an effort to build on this successful start, I would ask parents to reinforce three ideas with our students:

  1. Please please please always bring your ID to school. Student IDs are essential to everything we do on campus. Students need their ID to:

    Get FREE brunch and lunch provided by PAUSD
    1. Students who do not have their ID are asked to go to the office to get a temporary copy. 

    2. Students with IDs help expedite brunch and lunch service. 

    3. Check out books from the library

    4. Participate and attend school-sponsored activities. 


  1. Continue to keep Greene green: pick up your trash after brunch and lunch

  2. Be safe getting to school.

    1. Walk safely: 

      1. It's always best to walk on sidewalks or paths and cross at street corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.

    2. Bike Safely:


      2. Go With the Traffic Flow

      3. Obey All Traffic Laws

      4. Yield to Traffic When Appropriate

      5. Be Predictable

      6. Stay Alert at All Times

      7. Look Before Turning

I want to thank you for supporting our efforts by continuing to reinforce these 3 ideas with our students.
