$105 more...
We will be in first place with a great chance to win an amazing bus trip for the top 3 classes, including a trip to California Pizza Kitchen (kids get a tour of the kitchen and get to make a pizza and eat it etc.) and to the LA ZOO!! With private tour of parts of the zoo.

$81 more...
We will reach our class goal!!!

$208 total
We reach the school's goal!! That's asking 15 people to donate $15

If the whole school reaches our $60,000 goal...
We will get an additional ANGEL DONATION of $5000, a chance to slime Ramona and Maureen, and a school-wide party!!

Let's all do our part so everybody wins!!!


Our class has reached 100% participation in the Walk-a-Thon! Every student (as of today) has registered. Ms. Vanessa promised to throw the kids a Pajama, Popcorn and Movie Party if this goal was accomplished, so it's PARTY TIME! The party will likely be Thanksgiving Week during school hours.

Now that we're all registered - email everyone you know, post on Facebook, etc... and get those pledges in. We only have a few big fundraising events a year and this is one of them.


Can you believe we only have 25 weeks in the classroom until the end of the school year? How many of your 40 volunteer hours have you logged so far?
It's time to get in the classroom at least one hour per week!! Get that TB test and LIVESCAN if you haven't already. Or come clean the classroom after school or lunch! Or join us at a work party to get the South campus ready for our move!

Sign ups through the end of the year are now posted online:
or you can sign up at our parent's corner outside the classroom door!

More ways to log your volunteer hours....

Help us get ready for the move to South campus!

Work Party #1 is THIS Saturday, November 16th, 2013 9am-3pm. FREE CHILDCARE!

Get ready to roll your sleeves up and help us get our rooms ready for the move.

Our next Work Parties will be Friday, November 22nd, and Saturday November 30th.

If you can’t make it to our work parties, have no fear. We’re more than happy to have you come in for a few hours during the week! We will have open prep hours EVERY Tuesday and Thursday until further notice. Come in if you have one, two, or three hours to spare.
