New Kindergarten equipment has been approved by the District!  We are so excited to have this installed over the summer.  This is a picture of the play structure that we have ordered.  It looks great!
The PTC is excited to share some wonderful news about our school garden.  One of our members, Sheena West, submitted a grant proposal on behalf of our school to the Raley's Extra Credit program for money to improve our school garden site and it was SUCCESSFUL!  Thanks to Sheena's dedication of a few hours over winter break, our organization will receive approximately $4,800.00 for structural and material improvements.  The PTC wishes to thank Sheena for her time and good intent on the behalf of our students and staff that is sure to be evident for years to come evidenced by the by the fun, health and inspiration a vibrant and thriving garden can provide. 
Is the garden renovation a project you’re interested in?  Please come to the next PTC meeting on May 9th at 12:30pm in Room 17.

Congratulations and Thank You!

The PTC is thrilled to announce that the Jog-a-Thon generated a little more than $21,000.00!!! This is wonderful news and means all the traditional PTC programs (i.e. Garden/Sierra Harvest, Mistletoe Mall, assembly(s) Teacher Appreciation and Teacher's Classroom 300, etc.) will be fully funded this year and the remaining balance will be used to purchase as many chrome books as possible.
Limited edition Jog-a-Thon "Pirate Cubby" t-shirts for students who brought in $50 or $100(+) in donations are on order and will be distributed within about a week's time.
Thank you administration, staff, students and parents for your time and money in helping to make this year's Jog-a-Thon super successful and fun!!!!
Are you curious to learn how the Jog-a-Thon money is used this year?  Come join us at the next PTC meeting on Wednesday, October 11th, room 17, 12:30pm.
