Suitcase Drive /Community Service Event Benefiting Local Foster Youth
Please join the Parker Whitney PTC in a suitcase drive that directly benefits our Placer County Foster Youth. Often times these kiddos carry their few possessions in a garbage bag or backpack. Our hope is to provide them with a suitcase of their very own to protect their belongings.
Below is a list of needed items provided by the county: Rolling Suitcases, Journals, Toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, hairspray, hair gel) Headphones, Blankets Pens & Pencils, Hair Brushes, Facial Cleanser, and Young Adult Books.
We prefer the items are new, especially the blankets and headphones. Gently used suitcases are acceptable.
In addition, we will host our Family Assembly Event on January 10th right after school at 3:00pm. We will have students write notes and assemble fleece blankets. We encourage as much participation as possible.
What does Disney have to do with this, you ask? Disney gives back to schools who engage in service to the community. Our intent is to provide more auction items at our Adult Dinner and Auction Night in March. This is a wonderful way to give back to our community.
Thank you for your support!

Read to Succeed
"Starting in kindergarten, if a student reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. They will have read for 851 hours by 6th grade and on standardized tests, they will likely score better than 90% of their peers. This is compelling data on the benefits of encouraging your child to read." Scripps Media

With he help or Ms. Chisum and Ms. Dozier, we have many fun activities throughout the year that will encourage students to read for pleasure. The Six Flags Read to Succeed program is currently underway. The form came home last week, but can be printed from the link above. We also have some extras in the office.
