Pennies for Patients

Las Juntas will begin our Pennies for Patients campaign on Monday, March 6, 2017, and continue until Friday, March 24, 2017

This is our Student Council’s community service project for this year, and we hope everyone will be able to participate.

 Pennies for Patients is part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and focuses on children helping children.  Each student at Las Juntas will receive a letter explaining the program and a small cardboard box in which to collect any spare change around the house or any money that they choose to earn and donate to this cause.

  Of course, checks and larger donations are welcome, and anyone can contribute, but our hope is that every child can collect some change to put into their box to help some children less fortunate than they are.  The money collected will go to help families of those children affected with leukemia or lymphoma and to help fund research to find a cure for these diseases.   Individual collection boxes may be brought to school and emptied into the larger classroom collection box at any time, or multiple times, during this three week period.  Classroom boxes will be collected weekly with the amounts tallied until the final week when the totals from each class will be determined.  We are also putting an online donation site on this Las Juntas website for those who would like to donate online. 

THANK YOU to everyone who helps us with this cause. 

We appreciate you! 


So far we have raised $2,291.05!!

Teacher of the Year!

Martinez Unified honored its Teacher of the Year nominees at the February 27 Board Meeting. We congratulate all of the amazing teachers, and give special recognition to Julie Quinn who will be representing MUSD at the County Level!

Make Every Day Count!

Good Attendance Makes For Good Minds!


Research shows that students who improve their attendance rates improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating.

Attendance in the early grades is an important part of creating student readiness skills for later life. 

So let’s work together as a community – school and business leaders, parents, students, teachers, doctors, neighbors – to get all kids to school – on time, every day.

CA Physical Education Requirement Accountability

Students in grades 1-5, at all four elementary schools in the Martinez Unified School District, actively engage in the California requirement of 200 minutes of Physical Education every 10 days.  In order to assure compliance with this legal requirement, each site has established “Prep C” protocols for those grade levels that may not reach the 200 minute requirements due to minimum days, teacher prep, and / or assemblies.  These established practices of running laps, dance & movement, and cardio-conditioning outside of the PE class are documented and verified by the site administration on a monthly basis.

LJE is a Gold Ribbon and Title 1 School!
