Penngrove Elementary Library Coordinator
Thank you to all of the families who are continuing to fill out the daily Health Screener on Parent Square. It’s a good reminder of the Covid symptoms that we need to continue to monitor. If you answer “Yes” to any of the screening questions and are keeping your child at home, please remember to call the “Attendance Line” (707-778-4755) or fill out the Absence Form. Our front office staff does not have access to the Health Screening Forms.

PCS FAMILY HOLIDAY FUN RUN
We are gearing up for our first ever PCS 1 mile/5K/10K Family Holiday Fun Run. If your child is interested in participating in the 5K or 10K and would like to prepare ahead of time, we are putting together a Run Club at each school site. Practices will be held after school once a week on the day and time of the teacher or parent volunteer's choosing. The final event will be on Saturday, December 11th, where students and families will have the opportunity to participate in either a 1 mile, 5K, or 10K at Shollenberger Park and Ellis Creek.
Sonoma County Kids Gran Fondo
The Sonoma County Kids Gran Fondo is a bike race for kids. We’re encouraging kids to help other kids, as well as nurturing them to grow with open minds and compassionate hearts. It’s fun, inclusive, educational, and above all else, we truly believe it makes a positive impact on children in need. Each year, through kid-activated fundraising and the community effort of Petaluma and the surrounding area, the Fondo raises money for local families of children dealing with life-threatening illnesses or disabilities- We call these brave kids our Heroes. You can learn more about our heroes (both are seniors in high school this year) on the Sonoma County Kids Gran Fondo webpage. Due to the pandemic, this year's event is going to be all virtual the last week of October, Facebook info here.
