This Week at Placerita 12.9.19

We have two weeks (9 days) remaining in the quarter before Winter Break. I know we are all tired but we will make it through next week and be ready for some rest.

We have been looking at a few changes in our morning entrances into school and will give you more details about that next week. Those changes would take place in January when we return.

Monday our SSA (Safe School Ambassadors) will be meeting during both lunches in Tanner Hall. If any of your students are a part of that group feel free to remind them.

On Tuesday our Choir and Orchestra have their Fall Holiday Concert at 7:00 PM in the Hart Auditorium. Admission is free but donations are accepted. We would love to see you there.

Friday Morning we have Miner Munchies for the Staff. Meet in the library at brunch!

Friday is our Winter Formal Dance at Placerita. Our ASB has worked really hard planning all the activities that will take place at the dance. All the ticket sales were last week. It will take place from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM at Placerita. We look forward to a fun time.

Our Holiday Choir and Orchestra Concert will be Tuesday Evening at 7:00 PM at the Hart Auditorium. Please join us for an evening of music.

Last call...If you have requests for the Placerita Foundation get them to Janice by Wednesday afternoon. We are meeting later in the week.

If you are ordering anything for the winter holidays from Amazon please support the Placertia Foundation by ordering through smile.amazon.com and select Placerita Foundation as your Charity to support.
