Happy Winter Break, Las Positas Lions~

Happy Friday right before Winter Break~

Just as much as our students are looking forward to spending time with their loved ones and getting in extra minutes (or hours) of sleep, so is our staff!

It has been a busy but fulfilling 2021 and we hope that 2022 will bring lots of "two"-rific memories.

We hope you have a wonderful winter break and we'll see you next year~

The Hard-Times Jar

"A look at the life of migrant workers through a child's eyes

Emma Turner loves books and dreams of one day having the store-bought kind, but the Turners are migrant workers and money is tight. That means "no extras," so Emma must be content to make her own stories and books. Emma has a plan, though – she's going to save all the money she earns picking apples and put it in Mama's hard-times jar. Then there will surely be enough for extras. But when Mama tells Emma that this year she has to go to school instead of to work, it spoils everything. Now she will never own a store-bought book! But school turns out to have a wonderful surprise in store for Emma."
