PTA Family Movie Night @ 6:00PM – Detective Pikachu
Families, join us this Friday at 6:00PM for our PTA Family Movie Night. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and comfy clothes. The featured film is Detective Pikachu. The movie will start at sundown. For the safety of everyone, parents MUST accompany their own child(ren), and any older siblings must remain with parents as well. Concessions will be available.
Parents, we also want to inform you of volunteer opportunities directly in your child’s classroom. Each classroom teacher is looking for volunteers to act as Room Parents for this year. The duties of this role vary from teacher to teacher. Please check your child’s folder, to submit your form or you may print the form from the E-Backpack.
PTA- 5th Grade Committee- Mixed Bags Sale 9-3 thru 9/16
Fifth grade will begin their fund raising this year with the Mixed Bags sale, where 40% of the sales will go toward the special 5th grade activities planned for the school year. Take a look at the display in the main office and see our 5th grade committee for more details.
Again- Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Tiger Trot on Friday, September 20th.
Our School-wide Behavior Focus continues to be on our 4 Bes- Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Clean! As a part of Being Safe, LAPSD Officer Steinberg, wants me to warn parents that the drop off in front of the school on Topeka drive is for our visually impaired and bused students only. He has recorded a few cars violating this and asks that parents model following traffic laws for our students.
That’s it for this week’s news from school. Have a tigerrific evening.
