Electronic Flyer Delivery Starts December 9
The paper flyers we have been sending home will now be sent electronically to your inbox. These eflyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button that has been placed on each school’s website homepage. This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, it is our belief that this paperless delivery of school flyers will ensure important information gets delivered directly to you in a more efficient manner.
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from the “Peachjar” the service provider that will include a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view eflyers.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “email@example.com” to your email contacts. Note: add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your contact list just as written; DO NOT change it to the name of your school @peachjar.com. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
If you do not receive an email from Peachjar, it could mean your email address is not on file with your school, or there is an error with the address on file. Please see your school office to inquire.
This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
Thank you for helping us save time, money, and LOTS of trees!
2014 Halloween Parade
Livermore American Indian Center
The Livermore American Indian Center, serving students of American Indian/Alaskan Native heritage in the Livermore Valley and Castro Valley public schools, is searching for students of American Indian/Alaskan Native heritage who are age 4 through grade 12. When these students are identified and signed up for the Title VII Program, they are eligible for free services including a weekly cultural class, tutoring, field trips, scholarships, summer day camp, and parent-sponsored monthly business meeting.
If you know of any students who are eligible for the Title VII Program, please have their parents contact the Livermore American Indian Center at (925) 606-4748, ext. 3 or email: email@example.com
Announcing a two- day Technology festival hosted by Devoxx4kids on December 20th and 21st in Santa Clara. They are conducting multiple, tech-related, engaging and enriching workshops on Scratch, LEGO Mind storm, IOT Ardunio, Circuit Art, Raspberry Pie for gaming kids, Python, Google Code, Java Script and Lamp Minecraft modding.
Important Playground Rules
This is just a friendly reminder that there is no supervision on school grounds until 8:15am. You should not be dropping your child off before then. If you are having your child participate in the Fun Runners Club please make sure you are supervising your child if it is before 8:10am. You may leave once there is staff supervision.
We are seeking more help on the playground before school. The area is too large to manage with just one employee. This is a paid position of yard duty. Safety is critical for all students. The hours are 8:10-8:40am. You can work as many days as you like—it does not have to be a five-day commitment. If you are interested, please contact the school so that we can get the paperwork processed.
In the meantime, please be mindful of two expectations for before school behavior:
Please remind your children of these rules. We have been stating the same message in the classroom and on our morning messages but it takes all of us to reinforce these rules.
Thanks for your help!!!
Dear Sunset Families:
Happy October! It’s hard to believe that the month of September is already gone! Time has flown this year as students have gotten used to the routine of school and learning.
October is always a busy month! On October 9th, the staff will be busy delving further into the new units of study in writing. They received an overview in August for this new program and now the staff is examining writing practices and the study of narrative writing.
Goal setting conferences are a great time for teachers to connect with parents. Please look for information from your child’s teacher as to the date and time of your conference. Please take advantage of this time to meet with the teacher, ask questions, learn about their program and to find some attainable goals for your child.
PTO’s Monster Mash is coming up on October 24th. Each grade level will have a booth and fifth grade will have their traditional haunted house. The money that each grade level raises will go toward the cost of field trips. It should be a fun night with dancing in the MP.
Halloween falls on a Friday this year. We invite you to attend our parade, which will be held at the school at 8:45 in the morning. Your teacher will send out more information as the date gets closer.
We continue to look for parents who are interested in supervising students from 8:10-8:40 in the morning and from 2:35-3:05 in the afternoon. This is a paid position. If you are interested, please contact the office. We are in need!
Supervision before school is available from 8:15-8:30. Please make sure you are not on school grounds prior to this as there is no supervision for students. We want to make sure the students are safe!
