Soaring with America's Best Educators


Dear Parents, 

I am so excited to introduce the new instructional leaders of the Wise Owl Nation...Mr. Antonio Aguilar, Principal and Mr. Carlos Gonzalez, Assistant Principal.  Both young men come to the Wise Owl Nation with an earnest desire to continue the work we have started and help every student reach their maximum potential.  They are coming to work with a family of America's best educators, a  group of the Nation’s most talented students, and a team of the world’s most supportive parents. Mr. Aguilar will begin his assignment on Thursday, July 19, 2018, and Mr. Gonzalez will begin on Monday, July 30, 2018.  They are both very excited to meet all of you.  As I pass the baton and retire from the Los Angeles Unified School District, I ask that you remember to always keep your focus on doing what is best for our children.  Together, we have built a premiere learning institution, and it will endure the test of time, because we are Owls; we are strong; we are invincible. 


My next chapter in life includes being a part-time professor at California State University, Dominguez Hills, teaching new teachers classroom management skills and culturally responsive teaching.   


In the words of the late Senator Edward Kennedy, "The work continues, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."  Keep working in behalf of what is best for children and I wish you all the best things life has to offer. 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mr. Aguilar or Mr. Gonzalez at (310) 324-1153.  Here’s to a happy hootin’ summer time with rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.  Thanks for all of my beautiful memories.
  Hoot! Hoot! Hooray!


With sincere appreciation,


Marcia Sidney-Reed

National Distinguished Principal
