Happy Mother's Day

Whether you have kids of your own or get called mom all day by other people's kids, this day is for you. You all do so much mothering (including the guy teachers) that I wanted to wish you all a Happy Mother's Day. I have included a link to some great TED talks by some fierce moms.

We also had a great night on Friday at the Prestwood Benefit. We might be breaking all previous records for raising funds which is surprising. It appears that we raised $28,000 for our library in the Fund-a-Need alone. What an amazing parent community we have!

I am so grateful to be part of Prestwood and to work with all of you. With only four weeks left, I am ready to make a difference these final weeks.

Onward, Jason

Senior Alumni Visiting Prestwood

On May 19 High School Seniors in Sonoma will visit the elementary school they attended to walk the halls in their caps and gowns. We will have students lining the halls to give the students high fives as they tour the school. Louann is asking every elementary school to participate. Click here for a sample story about what she is going for.

Art Faire

We will be holding an Art Fair in the MPR for Open House. Please mount your art on a 6x6 panel and put it in the fishbowl to be hung. Ellie will be organizing and hanging the art before Open House.

STAR Testing Window Pushed Back

We were supposed to complete the STAR in the next two weeks. However, due to testing, we are pushing the window back an extra week. Please complete the STAR or Early STAR in the window of 5/16 to 5/27.
