Escondido Elementary

Dear Escondido Families:


Yesterday was our second PTA meeting of the school-year and we had a great turn out!  For those that were unable to attend...don't worry, we will post a summary of the minutes online.


All families are welcome to attend our general assembly PTA meetings, the next PTA meeting will be Monday, October 15 at 7 pm in the Library.  We alternate the start time of our meetings from morning to evening monthly. Teachers appreciate the morning times, because they can attend a portion of it, prior to the start of their class time.


At every meeting we will highlight volunteers contributing to Escondido in extra special ways, during the Welcome & Kudos portion of the meeting.  New this year, each month, the “Kudos” volunteers will be entered into a drawing, Sanne Lim was selected as the Volunteer of the Month, receiving a gift card, CONGRATS Sanne!
