Regards to Randie

We would like to take this opportunity to say farewell to someone who has always put the needs and interests of the children of Point Dume Marine Science Elementary School first. Randie Stern, principal, will be sorely missed as she returns to the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).

Two years ago Randie took a leave of absence from LAUSD in order to assume the position as principal/resource teacher at Point Dume. She eventually became the school’s full-time principal this past school year. In June, LAUSD informed Randie that she had until the end of June to exercise her option to return to LAUSD without losing district seniority. After much soul searching and discussions with the Point Dume staff and other friends, she decided to return to Los Angeles after discovering that she would be giving up significant retirement benefits. This was a very hard decision for Randie because she had grown to love the families and staff at Point Dume. We all support her decision and understand that this choice is the best for her future.

We at Point Dume would like to publicly thank Randie for supporting and believing in our marine science focus, encouraging new and innovative ideas, supporting and attending fund-raising activities, caring about our activities, supporting the staff’s family life, and for being a positive force in the community.

So we say, “Farewell, Randie. Much luck in your future, and thanks for the many hours, smiles, laughs, hugs, and the support and encouragement you have given us. We will miss you.”

Your Point Dume Elementary School staff
