Socktober is Here Again!
Let’s make a difference and spread kindness! What is Socktober? Socktober is an annual clothing drive started by Kid President creator, Brad Montague, in response to the growing homeless population. During the month of October, the 2nd grade classes at Parker Whitney Elementary will be collecting donations of new socks. We hope to bring in more than the 387 pairs collected last year. At the end of the month we will be donating them to a local shelter.
School Site Council - Members Needed!
Our site council is in need of 5 parents/guardians or community members interested in providing feedback on our site plan, safety plan, and LCAP. We will hold between 3 and 5 evening meetings for this school year. Once we have the nominees, we will hold a ballot to vote on our final representatives. Please cast your nominations by 10/9 at 4 PM.
