Serrano Eagles Bulletin

Parent Bulletin - August 30, 2015


Message from Mrs. Pedroza:

With three days of school behind us and many more learning filled days in front of us, it is a great time to look back over the last week and breathe easy knowing we had an amazing opening to a new school year. Thank you to those who supported the opening and those who trust in Serrano to leave your student at the gate with us every morning. It is truly a privilege to teach your children and watch them learn and grow. Your children inspire us to be better educators and better people - thank you!

This week is another busy Eagle week and this bulletin will serve a reminder of all the exciting things happening in the next five days. Thank you for your time in reading this over. Questions or Suggestions?

Staff Excited to Meet the Eagles!

A Message from Serrano Foundation:

The goal of the Serrano Foundation is to help support big purchases, like technology, for Serrano Elementary. The Foundation works collaboratively with the Serrano PFO and the Serrano Dads to support the staff and students of Serrano. The Serrano Foundation is always looking for people to join and volunteer their time raising funds for and supporting Serrano. PFO Meetings are held in the evening so perfect for the family that wants to get involved and has time in the evenings. Please check next week's Newsletter for meeting date and more information. If you are interested in joining the Serrano Foundation:

A Message from Serrano Dads:

So impressed by the number of dads, grandpas and father figures who have signed up to be a part of Serrano Dads so far. If you are still interested and did not sign up, please email and your information will be passed on. The staff of Serrano has many projects lined up for the Serrano Dads and we would love as much support as possible.

A Message from Serrano Traffic Committee:

Thank you for a great start to the year and for your patience in the parking lot. Please remember to park only where there is a parking spot and keep an eye out for the parent and teacher support in vests. The parking lot is a crazy place and your continued flexibility with changes that may be made will help us to find the easiest solution for all. Student safety is our #1 priority - thank you for your help in these efforts!
