So why can't all the parents in La Mirada band together and save our schools? How about attend the District meetings and start the process to call for a halt of 2 years that no money to be spent on "educational trips" and use that money for the schools?

oh yeah ... I just woke up and realized that the members who run the Norwalk-LaMirada School District are more interested in spending our children's money on themselves and not for all of our kids and the kids who will attend our community's schools in the future.

The problem is most all the parents will complain here and won't attend the school board meetings. When I attend those meetings it is the same small group of parents. Please parents if you do care come and let the board know how you feel.

I heard tell they're considering a proposal to build a large elementary school where Olive Lawn Cemetery is. Pretty nice location, in my opinion. People will be dying to get in.
