In this newsletter: Thanks to Our Volunteers, Back to School Night, Construction, Fingerprinting Party for Volunteer Badges

Thanks to Our Volunteers!

Thanks to everyone who donated their time and provided toppings for our Ice Cream social. Thank you especially to Lappert's for providing the delicious ice cream and to our teacher volunteers who had a very long day at school!

Back to School Night

Back to School Night will be Thursday, September 6 at 6PM (third grade will have a separate Back To School Night on September 11th at 6PM). There will be a welcome speach and teacher introductions in the MPR as well as a chance to meet with your child's teacher, see their classroom, hear the teacher's goals for the year and ask any questions you may have.  There will be a food truck on campus starting at 4pm so you can grab dinner beforehand. A more detailed flyer and robocall will follow later this week.


Just a reminder to allow plenty of time for drop-off and pick-up in the following weeks. As the parking lot at the corner of Eureka and Kearney has been blocked off, we expect that the demolition of Guitar Studio will commense shortly and create an increased amount of traffic and difficulties in traffic flow. We hope to share more information as it becomes available. 

Volunteer Fingerprinting Party at Harding

We are always looking for volunteers to help with events but usually this requires a volunteer badge. If you don't have one, this is the perfect time to get one! Just complete the online application form and then you can drop by Harding to be fingerprinted on September 9th from 9 am-noon in the MPR. This saves you the trip to WCCUSD central office to be fingerprinted.
