Missing a coat? Check the Lost and Found!
Please take a moment over the next couple of weeks to check our Lost and Found rack for your child’s missing items. Don’t want to weather Winter Break without that coat! Thank you to Melanie Evans for continued care of the Lost and Found and to Jo Tello, our new Lost and Found chairperson!

Interested in volunteering more in the new year?
Mrs. Terada in the library would love more volunteers to shelve books! Please contact Mrs. Terada or any board member and we'll put you in touch.

Several of our Board positions are open in the 2016-17 school year and WE NEED YOU! Now is a perfect time to think about a position and which might be right for you. Each position is only a 1 year commitment, 2 years maximum. If you’re interested, or just want to learn more, contact us. You can also read about the board positions on our website under PTO Documents. Nominations are in March, voting in April, and installation in May.
