It was so wonderful to see so many of you at the library this past week! We hope you can join us on Friday for Math and Muffins! If you haven't signed up, no problem. Please come! Please let me know if you need any help signing your child up for wrestling at RLS (see below). If your child wishes to participate, the bus CAN drop them off, they'd arrive at 3:20pm.

Dear Parents -
We are thrilled to announce the return of Run BIG! this year. A long standing tradition in the community that has been put on hold for the past few years due to the pandemic, Run BIG! is the culmination and celebration of a month long fundraising effort by the St Helena Public Schools Foundation and the Parent Teacher Groups to raise funds to enhance the education of our public school students in the area of arts and sciences. Give BIG! does so much for our schools and the kids get to Run BIG! to celebrate. More information specific to Run BIG! will be communicated but for now we are asking for parent volunteers to help during the event on Friday, March 31 f
rom 10:15am to 12:15pm. Please see below for a link to sign up and help volunteer.
And don’t forget to donate to Give BIG! as well. Donate now through March 24th to support our schools! http://www.givebigsthelena.org
On Friday, March 31st, all 1st and 2nd graders will be running to the Elementary school for an all-district rally. We plan on leaving SHPS at 11:15am. TK and Kinder students will enjoy running at SHPS and cheering on the older students as they start their run. 1st and 2nd graders will be dismissed from the Elementary School to the Boys and Girls Club, and those getting picked up by parents will have a designated spot for pick up. All B & G Club students will eat lunch at the Elementary school. All students will be dismissed from the Elementary school at 12:15pm. TK/K students will be dismissed from SHPS at 12:15pm.
We ask that all registration packets be returned by April 28th.
