closets please donate and share warmth this winter. There is a box outside
the school office for donations. We will collect coats until November 20
so we can deliver them before the holiday. Thank you!

not too late to join the PTA and donate to the Cheetah Pride Campaign.
This fund pays for the many programs the PTA runs each year - Artists in
Residence, teacher grants, curriculum enrichment programs, community events…
many “extras” that are no longer paid for by the school
district. The suggested contribution is $120 per family, and it’s
tax deductible. That amount also covers the classroom fund (for parties)
and a family PTA membership. We understand that $120 won’t work for
everyone; some people can and will give more, and others less. But we
appreciate every contribution and know that as a community we will work
together to fully fund our programs.
