BOX TOPS – Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and drop them off at the office. Please check the expiration date on the Box Tops; expired Box Tops are invalid.


ACCREDITATION VISIT – A team of four administrators and teachers from California and schools throughout our state will be on our campus next week to verify our current programs and school improvement process.  The visiting team will be observing classes and meeting with school staff, students, and parents. The team’s visit is an important step to determine an accreditation status.


PTC EARLY DISMISSAL – Students will be dismissed at 1:15 on Oct. 29, 30, Nov. 1, 2, Nov. 5, 8, and 9 to accommodate Parent/Teacher Conferences. Wednesday dismissal will remain at 1:30.
