welcoming everyone to the October 2009 WCSD Board              REPORT
Meeting and introduced Andrews School‘s principal, Mrs.
Alicia Aceves.

Andrews Principal Alicia Aceves welcomed everyone to
Andrews School, stating that it was good to see so many
in attendance. She also thanked everyone for their
support in this time of transition for the school and the
surrounding community. Mrs. Aceves recognized the
Andrews‘ Teachers, parents, PTA, and Dad‘s Club
members in attendance at the meeting.

Superintendent Carruth then announced the special
recognition honoring the Andrews Classified Staff
member, Night Custodian Lino Galaviz. Superintendent
Dr. Carruth stated, ―Lino Galaviz has been a custodian in
the Whittier City School District for over 29 years. For the
first 22 years of his tenure, he served as the day
custodian at West Whittier. He has been the night
custodian at Dexter and Andrews for the last eight years.

Lino has always gone above and beyond in his work
throughout the district. As the day custodian at West
Whittier, he took great pride in his work and took
responsibility for every aspect of his job. As the night
custodian at Andrews, there has never been a worry
when Lino is on site. All teachers trust their classrooms
and belongings to Lino. We know our school will be
                                                               35

beautiful when the kids arrive on campus every morning.

Lino will be retiring from the Whittier City School District
in December. He is looking forward to spending more
time with his three children and eight grandchildren. His
wife, Yolanda, will also retire soon from LAUSD. They will
have more time to spend traveling in their motor home
and gambling in Vegas! We look forward to hearing all of
Lino‘s funny stories about all of his adventures in
retirement. We thank you, Lino, for your friendship and
humor over the last 29+ years. You will be missed. Enjoy
your retirement and new chapter in life!‖

Board President Mrs. Small presented Mr. Galaviz with a
Certificate of Recognition. Mr. Galaviz then thanked
everyone for the recognition.

Dr. Carruth then asked Andrews Principal Alicia Aceves to
present the recognition honoring the Andrews Student.
Mrs. Aceves announced the student being honored was
fifth grader Jessica Montoya. She also commented that,
―Jessica is an outstanding 5th grade student at Andrews.
Jessica moved to California from Venezuela with her
family when she was two years old. Her father wanted to
come to the United States to study English and thought
they would stay for only 1-2 years. Over eight years later,
the family has settled here. All of us at Andrews are so
happy Jessica and her family stayed here to live!

Jessica moved to Whittier and enrolled in Kindergarten in
Mrs. Pocock‘s class about half way through the school
year. Jessica has not forgotten that she missed out on the
famous Gingerbread Man hunt Mrs. Pocock‘s class
participates in the beginning of every school year. Maybe
next year she can help with that activity before she leaves
Andrews.

Jessica always spoke Spanish in the home and did not
learn English until she went to school. This did not
prevent her from excelling academically from day one!
Every teacher holds Jessica in the highest of regards.
Most of her report grades are marked with 4s (the highest
possible grade) and Es for conduct and behavior (for
excellent). It also important to recognize that Jessica has
scored 600 on the ELA portion of the CSTs two years in a
row as a 3rd and 4th grader. Congratulations, Jessica.
That is an amazing achievement.
                                                              36

Jessica is a voracious reader. When I asked her what
she loves to do on the weekends, she told me she loves
to read. Her favorite books are those with ―lots of
adventure and animals.‖ Jessica loves to write about
animals as well. She wrote a research based feature
article about grizzly bears in the 3rd grade and the fennec
fox in 4th grade.

When I asked Jessica why she thought she has been so
successful as a student, she told me because she feels
as though she is a good listener. ―I don‘t want to miss out
on anything,‖ she said to me. Her current teacher, Mr.
Vazquez, refers to Jessica as ‗the sponge‘. I asked her
why she thought he called her that. She answered, ―I
always want to learn.         I always look for new
opportunities.‖

Not only is Jessica a wonderful student academically, she
is also a positive role model and a good friend to her
classmates. Jessica says, ―I have always been able to
make friends with anyone. Mr. Vazquez tells me I have a
zany personality. He is right!‖ Throughout her years here
at Andrews every teacher has said that she is kind and
sweet to both adults and children.

In closing, Jessica credits her school success to her home
environment as well. I asked her where her motivation to
do her best comes from. She responded, ―I am motivated
because I always want to go home. I have people I look
up to at home, my mom and my dad.‖

We are very proud of Jessica and her accomplishments.
Thank you to Dr. Carruth and the Board for recognizing
this incredibly special girl.‖

Board President Mrs. Small presented Jessica Montoya
with a Certificate of Recognition.

Dr. Carruth continued his report stating that Andrews
Elementary School and North Whittier Neighborhood
Watch (NWNW) have a very special relationship in that
the NWNW members work behind the scenes to provide
a safe neighborhood for children and their families by
addressing problems in the area when they arise.
Andrews Principal Mrs. Alicia Aceves expressed her
appreciation for the partnership with the NWNW and the
assistance they provide to ensure a safe neighborhood
                                                               37

for Andrews‘ families and students. Board Clerk Jennifer
De Baca commented that as a resident of the North
Whittier community she appreciates the presence of the
NWNW and the resulting safety within the community.
Board President Small stated that as a result of the
presence of the NWNW there have been no incidents of
crime at Andrews Elementary School. NWNW leader
Ruben Hernandez commented that it takes the entire
community, a family of friends, to have accomplished the
existing safe environment in the neighborhood. Mr.
Hernandez noted that involvement with the CHP, Los
Angeles County Sheriffs Department, and local politicians
have been instrumental in the resulting safe
neighborhood. The following individuals received
