Participants should be ready to sing at 7:45. Students must be committed to attend all twelve sessions and may be dropped from the program due to absences.

Celebrate your Child’s Birthday with An Alta Vista Birthday Book
Families can celebrate their child’s birthday by donating to the Alta Vista Library in their child’s honor!
We can choose a book based on your child’s age and interests or you can pick out a specific book that your child loves. Once chosen, a commemorative bookplate with your child's name will be placed in the book and it will be checked out to your child during their weekly library visit around his/her birthday. Summer birthdays can be celebrated any time of year.

INFORMATION FROM UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Nutrition Department remains committed to offering students fresh and nutritious meals, prepared using locally sourced ingredients. Students will once again enjoy complimentary breakfast and lunch this school year. We are excited to announce that the menus for the opening weeks of September are now conveniently available through Nutrislice.
Dear Families- The Union School District is proud to continue our partnership with We Tip. WeTip is designed to serve as a resource for students who experienced or observed school-related bullying, racism, harassment, vandalism or other inappropriate behaviors. Once a report is filed, WeTip will contact our Student Services in our Learning and Innovation Department with the specifics of the incident, and Student Services will work with the administration, counselors, and other school staff.
Through WeTip, the anonymity of the person reporting is maintained. Students and parents are also encouraged to contact school staff directly to report inappropriate behaviors because this typically provides us with more detailed and helpful information. A We Tip report can be submitted via the We Tip hotline (844) 408-0580 or online using this link.
