Principal’s Message

Dear Lion Family, 

Happy Friday to you and yours. 

We had another busy week this week at LVLA in hosting the Supervisor of Santa Clara County Cindy Chavez, the Superintendent Glenn Vander Zee, and the President of the Board of Trustees at the East Side Union High School District, Lorena Chavez, taking students on a field trip to the Google Campus, Mr. Carreon and Mr. Gomez with their students preparing the altar for Dia De Los Muertos, and hosting Senior Night for Volleyball. Please see the pictures below.

Ms. Saira Canales took 3 of our students this week to join Google for a day of inspiring high school girls to discover the diversity of STEM careers and hands-on experience to pursue such careers. Workshops, panels, and networking opportunities will be available!


Thank you for all you do, 

Dr. Phung
