Goodbye Brooklyn Community

Dear Parents, guardians, and students of Brooklyn,


After proudly serving as your principal at Brooklyn Avenue School for the last two years, I have accepted a promotion as Director of Schools for Local District East.  Although I will miss our students, staff, and parents here in our Brooklyn community, I look forward to this new opportunity.  In these two last years, it has been a pleasure to see the academic growth at our school while also providing our students with a safe and nurturing school environment.


During these last two years, we have received the following honors:

-Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll School 2017-2018

-Innovate Public Schools/USC Price & Rossier Top Public School 2019


I would like to thank all the students, parents, and guardians for all your support these last two years.  Thank you and your child for all the ideas, input, and many conversations.  It has been an honor to be your child's principal and member of this community.


-Ricardo Tapanes,

GO EAST Los Angeles

On October 26, 2018 Brooklyn learned more about our GO East LA program.    GO East LA stands for Greater Outcomes East Los Angeles and was created by the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board Member Mónica García, East Los Angeles College (ELAC) President Marvin Martinez, and California State University, Los Angeles President William A. Covino.

This program was developed to foster long-term educational and career success for students in East Los Angeles,

The GO East LA program helps students in many ways, such as:

  • Providing guaranteed enrollment into Cal State L.A. and ELAC for freshman and ELAC transfer students who meet minimum requirements
  • Building college awareness through outreach to middle school students and their parents.
  • Promoting guaranteed college entry to middle and elementary school students.

No matter where you would like to go to college, just by being part of this school and our East LA community, it is great to know that we all have at least one seat waiting for us at Cal State Los Angeles.

David J. Steitz Art Contest

Have you ever wondered where the wonderful artwork that hangs in our Brooklyn Avenue School auditorium came from?  

All the artwork is actually donated and painted by artist and former teacher of Brooklyn, David J. Steitz.  David was an advocate of immigration rights and world peace.  Our auditorium was dedicated to him on June 14, 2007.


This year in celebration of his life and contributions to our school, Brooklyn held an art contest for our K-5th Grade students.  Entries where judged on originality and showing the message of world peace.  


Thank you Ms. Mendoza for leading this art contest and for your donation of all the student prizes.
