THANK YOU -- THANK YOU -- THANK YOU
Today's Jog-a-thon was a huge success! The kids did an awesome job, the parents were a huge help, and the PTC had it set up beautifully! Thank you to all the parents who donated and volunteered in order to make this event so successful! We collected approximately $21,500 dollars from this event, which fully funds our WonderGround Science docent, the Crocker Art Art, Classroom Support, with some extra to do something special for our students.
Calling all photographers!!
If you get great photos of our kids participating in Jog-a-thon
, we would love to have them for the yearbook! Please email your photos to Clare Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have other photos from field trips, parties, or other school events, you can send those throughout the year. Thank you!!
Jog-A-Thon is Friday!
The theme for Jog-a-thon is "Sports Fanatic". Wear your favorite team jersey or team colors. You can even wear your own team uniform if you have one! Get plenty of rest, eat a healthy breakfast, and GET READY TO RUN!
The PTC thanks you for all your Jog-a-thon donations so far! We have collected $6,242.25 to date! Our goal for this year is $18,000... Tomorrow is the last day to qualify for prizes (but donations will be accepted until Friday). Funds raised this year will pay for WonderGround Science Lessons (these are awesome, ask your child!) and the Crocker Art Ark. Thank you!
The Jog-A-Thon is one week from today!!! Our theme is “Sports Fanatic.” Students are encouraged to wear their favorite team’s jersey, t-shirt or sports attire( no equipment or cleats please, adhere to the school dress code). Please send your money in to your student’s classroom by Wednesday, Sept. 19th to qualify for prizes (money will be accepted through the day of the event). This is one of THE most exciting days on campus, please consider signing up with your student’s teacher to help out during the event. The money raised at this event will pay for all PTC-run programs as well as those AMAZING science experiences your child is SO EXCITED about from Erin Mitchell of WonderGround Science and the Crocker Museum Art Ark experience this spring!
School Site Council Parents Needed!
The School Site Council is a group of administrators, teachers, classified staff, and parents who meet three or four times each year to to review the site's Comprehensive School Safety Plan, State Testing data, the district LCAP (local control accountability plan), and the parent satisfaction survey. This is not a fundraising committee, it is an advisory council to the district that helps us to set goals and priorities for the school and the district.
The Site Council is made up of 5 members from the school site and 5 parents or community members. We meet after school at 2:15. Our first meeting is Wednesday, September 26th. We have openings for 4 parents on this committee this year. If you would like to join us, please call or email Mrs. Montero to volunteer!
The Shoe Drive Continues!!
This Friday is the FINAL DAY to donate shoes for the Kindness Challenge Shoe Drive! Please send in your gently used sneakers by Friday afternoon so they can be counted and bagged. Thank you!
The PTC is looking for a volunteer (or two, or three) to become the Yearbook Chairperson(s) to gather/take pictures and contract a distributor for this year’s yearbook. This year, just like other years, the yearbook is dependent on parent volunteer(s) to be produced. Without a Chairperson to organize, there will not be a yearbook made this year. Jog-A-Thon, a very photogenic event is coming up in a little over one week’s time. Please consider committing some time to this worthwhile position if you would like to buy a yearbook this spring.
The next PTC meeting is this Wednesday, Sept. 12th at 12:30 pm in room 17. If you cannot make the meeting but are interested in this position, please e-mail Edie Kodet: email@example.com”
PICTURE DAY IS THURSDAY!
Picture Day is this Thursday, September 6th. All students will have their picture taken, including preschool, on this day. Class pictures will be taken at this time as well. If your child typically wears a hat and you want his/her picture taken with the hat on, that is OK.
Make ups/retakes will be done on October 17th, but the class pictures will not be redone.
