PTA General Association Meeting – Next Tuesday
There will be a PTA Association meeting next Tuesday, December 17 from 5:30 – 6:15 p.m. in the auditorium (just prior to the Band concert). The main purpose of the meeting is to share information and hold a vote regarding the paver and landscaping project planned for the front of the school. This is the project that the Jog-a-thon fundraising is earmarked for. The hope is to have the project completed during the upcoming winter break. The meeting agenda will also include an update on the Project Green award our students received last Spring and a discussion about implementing the proposed project. Childcare will be provided by 4th R.
Thank You For Your Donations

Drop-N-Go – Volunteers Needed
PTA Waiver – Be Sure to Sign and Return
New this year, California State PTA requires that each child have a waiver on file if they want to participate in PTA sponsored activities such as Jog-a-thon, Sports Day, Zumba Recess, etc. The one waiver is good for the entire school year. Click here for the waiver.
The Annual Fund provides funding to support student achievement and to sustain the school’s mission of academic excellence. This is a great option for those who would rather not participate in the event-based fundraisers throughout the year but would still like to support the school. Spread the word to out of town family and friends. Click here for the Annual Fund Form with donation information and FAQ’s.
Common Core Standards
New English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math content standards called the “Common Core” are coming that will change what your child learns and how they learn it. Click here for more info. You can also attend a workshop to learn more.
Accelerated Reader Program
We hope that our new Accelerated Reader Program for second-sixth grades is encouraging your child to become even more of a voracious reader. We have sent home information for parents that will help clarify the program, and provide guidance for accessing books at your child’s reading level as determined by the diagnostic test from Accelerated Reader.
