Although our KIPPsters at KIPP LA Prep are always doing exciting things in the classroom, it's not every day that they see their Mayor walking through the halls.
Mayor Eric Garcetti toured KIPP LA Prep last week to see our scholars in action. The tour, led by School Leader Carlos Lanuza, Executive Director Marcia Aaron, and KIPP LA Trustee Martha Karsh showed the Mayor the work our teachers and students are tackling in English language arts, math, science, art, and music.
A photography buff himself, the Mayor enjoyed seeing students making stop-action movies in art and asked questions about speed and velocity in science class. He also got some book recommendations from eighth graders in an English class, and even joined in on a piano performance with our KIPPster musicians.
This was the Mayor's first visit to a KIPP LA school and we look forward to partnering with him in the future to build a better Los Angeles.
