Parent Volunteers Needed!

We need volunteers to help our nurse Azita Najafi with Vision and Hearing Screenings. This year our screenings are happening on Monday 2/12/18 and Tuesday 2/13/18. We would like to give parents ample time to plan, and we appreciate you volunteering. We would like 2 volunteers from 8:50am to 3:10pm. If you prefer to volunteer for half the day, we can do either 8:50am to 12:45pm (first two block periods) or, 1:25pm to 3:10pm (last period). Please email our Health Technician Patty Cortes if you are interested in helping:

Cheers for Children Drive is still happening! Help those in need and donate some dried foods now!

Dear Families,

Please support the 65th Cheers for Children Campaign. The Cheers for children annual food drive is a Ventura Unified School District effort to provide food baskets for families in need during the holidays. Each school has been assigned a specific food item with a target of serving 350 families. DATA is in charge of collecting the following dried foods-rice, spaghetti, pastas, instant mashed potatoes, and dried beans.

Our food drive begins this Friday, 12/1 and ends Wednesday, 12/20. Please join in the spirit of giving and sharing by sending with your child non-perishable food items selected for our school. Students are to take the non-perishable items to Ms. K’s PE Office. In addition to helping support families in need, every 10 items earns a student a Mile Pass! Any donations are welcome! Thank you.
