Huff PTA News Bits
January 29, 2020

Hi Huff Parents & Friends! Lots of news bits from Huff PTA and the Huff parent community this week:

  • News/Updates on Huff MakerSpace
  • MVEF Winter Gala & Auction coming up on Saturday, Feb. 9
  • Volunteers Needed for Measure T Phone Banking Thursday evening
  • PTA Nominating Committee: Step up to help lead for next school year!
  • Lost & Found Cart being cleared out this Friday, Jan. 31

Huff MakerSpace Updates: Students are having a blast creating things during lunch recess at the Huff MakerSpace! See the flyer attached for more info about upcoming months, and here are a few important things to know:

  • Sign-up sheets have moved to a new bulletin board outside the MUR.
  • We don't need any more bottles or cardboard! Your donations were great and the space is full of large materials for the kids to use. We can still use small crafty items like googly eyes, pompoms, etc.

MVEF Winter Gala & Auction: The annual MVEF gala is Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Mountain View Senior Center. The gala includes a scrumptious dinner, auction and dancing. It's a fun night and a great way to support our schools! Join fellow parents and community members as we celebrate science in our schools and raise funds for all that MVEF does in our schools, such as CSMA music and art classes, Living Classroom, hands-on science and field trips. For more info about the gala, visit
 Winter Gala raffle tickets are also on sale to benefit MVEF. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for a book of 5. Enter to win premium tickets to a Shoreline Ampitheatre concert, San Jose Earthquakes tickets for 4, or a $250 gift card to Cognition Cyclery. Contact Huff parent Mona Singh to buy via PayPal or in person.

Volunteers Needed for Measure T Phone Banking: Tomorrow evening (Thursday, Jan. 30) is Huff/Vargas evening in support of an upcoming school bond measure on the March 3 ballot. If you can help with making phone calls to promote this measure, sign up here to participate in the phone bank. If you can't sign up for Jan. 30, other days are available to work. Thank you for supporting our schools!

PTA Nominating Committee: Huff PTA's work depends on parents like you! We're seeking fresh faces to serve on the executive board for next school year. There are various positions to fit people with different skills, talents and interests. Can you step up to serve, or maybe you can encourage someone else who'd be great? For more info or questions, contact anyone on this year's board or any of the members of our nominating committee: Christina Barker, Emily Horowitz, or Shannon Schwartz.

Lost & Found Cart Clean-Out: It's the end of the month, and time to check Huff's Lost & Found cart behind the office! Girl Scout Troop 60842 will be cleaning it out this Friday, Jan. 31, so please check the cart for any of your kids' clothing items, food containers, etc.
