We honored our volunteers at a breakfast on Friday, May 26 with a performance from our kindergarten dual immersion students, 5th & 6th-grade students in 406, and 4th-grade dance group from 503. We look forward to a wonderful school year in 2023-2024! Your partnership is necessary and appreciated!

CAASPP Testing Snacks Needed!

CAASPP Testing for 3rd-6th graders is around the corner!  Let’s support these amazing students by donating snacks to help them be energized and focused during standardized testing! 

Peace Patrol has volunteered to help collect and organize snack packs for some upper-grade classrooms. Since there are 9 classrooms that are in need and there will be 8 days of CAASPP testing, we need A LOT of donations (those with allergies will be given another snack). Here is what we need:

– Individually Packaged Goldfish (410 total)
– Fruit Gummy Snacks (410 total)
– Individually packaged Pretzels (410 total)
– Individually packaged Cheez-Its (410 total)
– Peppermint Puffy Mints (daily treat, so need approximately 1,620… Amazon sells in buckets of 160)

Please consider buying around 30 of one of these items. That would cover 1 class for 1 day of testing. Feel free to donate more!

When to donate: After school in the office
Dates to donate: Monday, April 17 to Monday, May 8 (this will give us time to organize for classrooms)

There will be a box for you to donate treats in the school office. Thank you for your support for all students!
