Happy Chinese New Year!
Dear Altadena Eliot Arts Families,
Today marks the beginning of Chinese New Year, also known as Asian New Year, Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival. You may read more about the celebrations and traditions of this week long celebration here: https://parade.com/1149005/lindsaylowe/chinese-new-year/. We wish all our families who celebrate, a prosperous, healthy and happy new year!
Thank you to all our families who attended our first Design Team Meeting of 2023! It was wonderful to see so many new faces! Be on the lookout for the next date coming up this spring.
Friday is FREE DRESS at the elementary school!
Our middle school is hosting a shoe drive fundraiser now- March 17th! Clean out your closet and drop off your gently used and no longer needed new shoes at Eliot’s main office or in the bin at AAM. Your shoes will receive a second life, helping those in need and you will be helping Eliot’s PTSA. It’s a win-win!
Reminder to middle school parents. We still have a dress code, please do not send students to school in pajamas. Order your Husky Wear by clicking on the live link.
SAVE THE DATES:
February 17, 6-8 pm Middle School Sweetheart's Dance.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Your PTSA is hard at work planning the new semester. We could use your help.
Here's what we got so far:
- PE wear, Hoodies and Sweats. Order yours by January 13th (cash or credit card). Order forms will be available in the main office beginning Monday.
- Shoe Fundraiser: For 2 months starting January 17, we will be collecting gently used & new shoes to raise money for PTSA.
Remember all events / fundraisers are for everyone.You don't have to be a PTSA member to participate. You do have to be a member to give input on how the money is spent.
Let's have a great semester!
Eliot Arts PTSA President
