Principal's Message

Hello Tiger Families; 
This is my FAVORITE time of year! I absolutely love the Fall colors and cool weather.  I cannot believe how much learning has occurred at SOEC. I continue to see strong growth for all of our students, and I am proud of the education that we offer our community. SOEC is a great place to learn and I am so glad that you are part of it!    
Now that we are well into the school year, I know many of you are anxious for our Parent/Teacher Conferences coming up the week of November 13. Be sure to mark your calendars as the Parent Conference days are minimum days with dismissal at 12:30pm. These conference times are great opportunities for some face-to-face dialogue between you and your child’s teacher, emphasizing their outstanding growth, and also some targeted areas for improvement. These conference times go extremely fast, so if you have further questions following these conferences, I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher and schedule another time to meet. At SOEC, we value our open communication as together, we will continue to positively impact the learning of our children.
 The Scholastic Book Fair is the same week as parent conferences. Students will  visit the book fair on their library days and parents will have an opportunity to visit the book fair on conference days from 12:30-2:30pm.  Parents will be able to set up an account for e-wallet which makes it easier for students to shop. As always, all purchases benefit our school!
 One of our school wide focuses is small group targeted instruction in the classroom and our teachers are working daily to adjust for the individual needs of their students. Teachers meet throughout the week and analyze student learning data with their colleagues, so that we can make the best decisions for what our students need. During 
staff development days, our teachers are continuing these conversations and collaboration around student learning. Additionally, we also regularly talk about our students’ social/emotional needs as we believe in educating the whole child, and work hard to have an environment in which all kids are successful. We pride ourselves each day in knowing what our students need, and then delivering the instruction that best fits those needs. We believe in your children and cannot wait to see them develop into positive citizens within our community! 

Warm Regards, 
Principal Miller


For the next four years, Los Angeles Unified will focus on a singular goal: ensure ALL our students graduate READY FOR THE WORLD – to thrive in college, career, and life. This Strategic Plan represents a promise to our entire Los Angeles Unified community that we will achieve this goal. With this plan, we are establishing a new, inspiring vision on how we can improve student achievement and close opportunity gaps. We believe that by outlining a singular goal, and a vision for achieving this goal, we can ensure that everyone who is a part of Los Angeles Unified will be able to support and uplift our district together.
Our singular goal: ensure ALL our students graduate READY FOR THE WORLD – to thrive in college, career, and life.
Through a robust listening and engagement effort capturing diverse voices from across the District, we have established a shared vision of what student success looks like and what being ready for the world means; this plan will serve as a roadmap outlining all of the steps we will take to realize this vision. This plan is designed to inform actions that can be taken at the school site, through the district office, and in our communities to drive student success and move toward our singular goal, creating alignment across the District on the ways we can best serve our students and our school communities.
We acknowledge that the last two years have been difficult for our students, staff, and families – the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us in many ways and forced us to rethink how we provide for our students.
And while we will continue to respond to the impact of a pandemic still present in our communities, this plan will allow us to elevate the ways in which we have adapted positively to serve our students and highlight the promising practices we will institute to carry us forward. We will capture the urgency of our current moment and work together to transform into a stronger, more inclusive, and more responsive district.
