🍽FAIRMEADOW DINEOUT NIGHT! Don’t forget to give yourself a break from cooking on, Tuesday, March 1st, Fairmeadow is partnering with Mendocino Farms restaurants in Palo Alto and Mountain View to raise money for our school's PTA.  Valid for online orders only. Simply order ahead, skip the wait, and enjoy your meal. Or if getting your lunch or dinner delivered is more convenient, that is also an option through their website. Visit their website at www.mendocinofarms.com for locations, menus, and ordering.
Don’t forget to add coupon code FAIRMEADOW1 at checkout and 20% of the proceeds will go to our school. See the flyer below for more details.
 
📌PTA SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING NOTICE, THURSDAY MARCH 3RD @ 7PM: All are welcome to attend, but this is a notice especially to our PTA members of a Special General Meeting to appoint our new Auditor and Audit committee member due to our previous Auditor needing to step down for personal reasons. We have one or two other housekeeping items, but we are hoping this meeting should take no more than 10 minutes, we would appreciate your support in attending promptly at 7pm so we can reach our required quorum and pass our votes quickly. We will hold a special Executive meeting at 6:55pm, followed immediately by our General Meeting @ 7pm.  Click here for our agenda.
