Invitations from the Tree House


Hello Monarch Family:

Our annual Ice Cream Social will be held on Wednesday, May 10th, from 12:30-1:45 in Monarch Hall.  As usual, we will recognize staff and faculty for their years of service to the district, our newly tenured faculty, our newly retired staff and faculty, and we will introduce our new employees who started at LAVC during the past year.  We will also announce the winners of the “Above and Beyond” Awards, and TAE will announce their Apple Award winners.  I know that some of you teach during this time, but please know that we tried to find a time that worked with the schedules of most faculty and staff. 

As you can see from the attached Above and Beyond Award criteria, we have streamlined the number of awards to five because two of the categories seemed to overlap significantly last year.  Thanks to my fabulous Executive Assistant, Armine Galukyan, the nomination forms are fillable pdfs, which should make completing a nomination much easier.  All nominations are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, April 21st and should be emailed to Armine at  I encourage all of you to consider nominating someone, and remember that the lucky winners get, among other things, the opportunity for breakfast with me at Blu Jam!

I also wanted to announce my office hours for March:

I am hoping for nice weather so that we can sit outside on my balcony while we chat about life at LAVC!  Please come see me in the Tree House….the candy jar is waiting for you. 

As always, thanks for everything you do to make THE Valley College a very special place to work!!!!

Y’all ROCK!!
