Cookie Dough Sales

We are exited to begin our fundraiser with Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough. Every order helps our school programs! Check your Friday folders for brochures and more information. Please share the brochures with family,friends, and co-workers. Please note: The cookie dough is delivered frozen, and we do not have space to store it for anyone, so please be sure to pick up your cookie dough on the delivery day. Sales dates: 10/26-11/12. Please return all money in the envelope along with the order forms by 11/12.


The El Cerrito High School Marching Band will be at our school on October 31st at 9:20 AM for the first parade of the day. ONLY kindergarten students should wear their costumes to school so they will be ready for the parade. They are the only classes that actively participate in the first parade. Grades 1-6 will be on the yard to view the parade. The second parade will be at 1:15 PM. Parents wishing to view this parade may come on campus at 1:05 PM. Students in grades 1-6 are to bring (not wear) their costume to school. There will be time for them to put on their costumes in the classroom (not the bathroom) AFTER lunch recess. Please note that their costumes should be worn over their clothes. No masks, gory/bloody make-up, or toy weapons (plastic swords/guns/knives) are allowed. Check with your teacher for any classroom activities. Student's will be dismissed at 2:05 PM.
