PTA Nominating Committee Needs YOU!

We need five volunteers for the PTA Nominating Committee to help us survey this year’s leaders and recruit volunteers for next year’s open Board positions.  Electing a Nominating Committee is one of the requirements of a PTA in good standing. The ideal committee member is outgoing and enthusiastic about the school. In particular, we would love to have parent representatives from K-2nd grade classes on the committee. If you are interested in learning more about the committee or if you have a suggestion of a parent who would be great for the job, please contact Heather Schultz or another PTA board member.

Girl Scouts Soccer Uniform Collection

The Girl Scout annual soccer uniform collection service project will take place the first 2 weeks in January (not December as in previous years).  The uniforms are sent to Oaxaca, Mexico which is one of Palo Alto’s Sister Cities. Watch for boxes outside the office when we return to school.  We are looking for shirts, shorts, and socks. No shin guards or shoes. For more information contact Evelyn Guernsey(
