School Experience Survey

Thank you Parents, Students and Staff for completing the survey!

 

 

 

The Cow came to Tweedy!

  Mobile Dairy Classroom assembly was a success!

     Ruby the Cow and Timothy (a week year old bull) visited Tweedy Elem on January 25th.  Mr. Batista, the Mobile Dairy Classroom Instructor, talked to the Tweedy students about how milk and dairy foods are produced and how they contribute to healthy eating.

They listened attentively and learned about the life of a cow. More than anything the students were excited to have an opportunity to see a real cow and touch Timothy the baby bull. It was an exciting moment for all the students at Tweedy Elem., thanks to the Dairy Health Program and Mr. Batista.

 

What Students Learn in the Mobile Dairy Classroom:

  • The anatomy of a dairy cow
  • How milk goes from a cow to their school/home
  • The agricultural technology used on dairy farms
  • The many different foods made from milk

Dr. Seuss Celebration

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, under the name of Dr. Seuss in 1937. Next came a string of best sellers, including The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. His rhymes and characters are beloved by generations.

Principal's Message

Dear Tweedy Families, 

It is an honor to introduce myself as the principal of Tweedy Elementary School.   I came here with a strong commitment to serve the students of this community in reaching their goal of attending college and becoming a successful adult in our society.   I migrated to the southeast where I received a great public education.  As an educator, my heart is in this community to ensure that our students have the same opportunities that have benefited my family and me. 

I feel fortunate to lead a school that believes in collaboration to maximize student learning.  It is my intention to carry on the work that has already begun to make Tweedy one of the highest performing schools in Southeast Los Angeles. I believe that for us to accomplish our vision, we must build relations and work together as a team.Our competent staff is passionate and committed to educating our children. My goal is to visit at least 25 families over the summer to learn about your unique challenges and expectations.  These conversations will be the beginning toward forming a partnership to increase student achievement.

At Tweedy Elementary School, we will have an “open door” policy to encourage families and community to dialogue, collaborate as we face the challenges before us.   We look forward to your involvement in the improvement of the school and the decision making process.  Together we can create a community of learners and prepare our students for the 21st Century.

Sincerely,

Marcos Hernandez, Principal
