Fall Festival/ Dia de los Muertos

Please join us for our Annual Fall Festival & Dia de los Muertos on Saturday, October 27th from 2 PM-5 PM. We have lots of fun, crafts, food, activities, and games planned for our festival but we need your help to make it happen. There are lots of things you can sign-up to do, even a few things that you don't have to be around to do (like making cupcakes). Please help in whatever way you can!

Something new! In addition to expanding the games and having a taco truck this year, we are adding a Lip Sync Battle. Please sign up to participate ASAP!


5th Grade Point Bonita Informational Meeting

Point Bonita Staff will present how the program works and answer questions for parents. The meeting will be in the Fairmont Library, Thursday, October 25th at 6 PM. Come and sign up.
