Please do remember to wear your helmet and remind your kids to wear theirs.As a thank you for your participation you will receive a glow in the dark wristband and a raffle ticket. We will raffle off some prizes during that morning’s assembly.Walking and bicycling to school is a great exercise, it gets you ready for learning. Parents can enjoy the morning coffee by the principal’s office.And not to forget, it is the greenest commute choice you can make. Put your sneakers on. Ready, set, go!
Do you know how to double your eScrip contributions? Be sure your Safeway Club Card is registered with eScrip! Last year, families who had a Safeway Club Card registered with eScrip raised, on average, TWICE as much money through their eScrip contributions.
If your Safeway club card is already registered with Escrip, be sure to renew it. As part of its work with eScrip, Safeway asks eScrip participants to renew their Club Card in the eScrip system by November 1. It’s really easy to do and shouldn’t take more than five minutes of your time. Just go to www.escrip.com, click on the Safeway renewal icon, and follow the simple instructions.
If you just enter your phone number into the system when you shop at Safeway, but you do not know your club card number or you lost your club card, Just call 1-877-723-3929 (select Option 3) and the Safeway Customer Service team will help you identify your Club Card Number.It’s always a good time to register for eScrip to raise $$$ for Palo Verde. Just go to www.escrip.com and follow the very simple instructions. Our group number is 137331259 and we are listed as Palo Verde PTA.
Please contact our eScrip Coordinator, Callie Turk, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Engage in a variety of creative, cooperative work, including the ancient paper- folding art of origami, mind-bending maze construction, and the 3-D world of paper sculpture. Students will delight in discovering the concepts involved in exploring various art forms.Volunteers are needed to assist with the stations.
