PTA Announcements

Happy New Year, and Welcome Back (almost)!
No school for students on Monday, January 8th, but the teachers are in class!

Pajama Day Tuesday, January 9th

Dive Into Reading Kicks Off Next Tuesday, January 16th
Details will be coming soon about our annual Read-a-Thon Fundraiser! One part you can prepare for now is the Book Exchanges that will happen Tuesdays and Thursdays mornings during the Read-A-Thon in January. Families bring books they are done with and trade them in for different books brought by other families. There are two locations - outside the library and in the kindergarten snack area. You can get ready for the book exchange by cleaning your bookshelves and making a pile to bring. Check out volunteer sign ups to help set up the exchange stations.

Yearbook: Upload your photos!
Upload all the fun photos from class field trips and activities into the designated folders in TreeRing. There is a shared folder for each classroom (labeled by grade and teacher name), as well as each school event. You can easily share photos using these community folders, or start downloading some favorites for your custom pages! When you open TreeRing, under the PHOTOS page, select “ALL COMMUNITY SHARED FOLDERS” and you will find the labeled folders ready for you to upload your photos.  It's not too late to order a yearbook! Go to and use our school code #101282597210657 and you will have until April 30th to design your two free custom pages. For questions, contact Christine Wong. Happy holidays! 

Community Announcements

Save the Date: Rotary Lobster Fest is January 27th!
It's that time! The Belmont/Redwood Shores Rotary Club will be hosting its annual fundraiser this month. Formerly acclaimed as the "Rotary Crab Feed," we've retooled and are now sponsoring the 2018 Rotary LOBSTER FEST!  It's set for Saturday, January 27th at Twin Pines.
In past years, our students and teachers have been RECIPIENTS of proceeds from this popular event!  Each year, Rotary Scholarships and Teacher Mini Grants programs begin with the success of this annual fundraiser.
Please help get the word out.  Tickets are going fast -- and will hopefully, once again, sell out. We'd LOVE to have a table or two of teachers and parents at the event. We've been told that it makes our participants feel GREAT when they are actually able to lay eyes on folks who will benefit from the generosity of support that we see each year at this event.
