Mission

Dear La Luz Parents and Families,   

This year has been a very successful year for La Luz students, staff, and families.  We’ve had great parent involvement in our parent/teacher conferences, family nights, first annual talent show, fun run, and play day. 

La Luz is also proud to have a Bilingual Maintenance Program and to have the teachers to teach self-contained Bilingual classrooms.  This program focuses in having students be bilingual and bi-literate.  In this program Spanish Language Arts is taught for 60 minutes.  All of our teachers are ESL endorsed.  Our teachers have had training in our district core programs of Treasures, Treasure Chest, and Tesoros and now are engaged in studying the Common Core State Standards which are in full effect in grades K-3 while grades 4 and 5 will use the NM State Standards.  Grades 4 and 5 will implement the Common Core State Standards in the school year 2013-2014. 

Our teachers are focused in teaching our students to their fullest potential. It takes all of us working together (parents included) to educate a child.  When we work together your child will learn more and have more self-confidence in school.  Education is so important to our children graduating and going on to further their education.  We want the best for every child.
