Volunteers Needed to Judge 6th Grade Science Fair Projects

We are in need of FOUR parents to judge the 6th graders' science projects on Thursday, October 26th from 10:00am-12:00pm. Two of these parents will need to speak Spanish, because the FLITE students will present their projects in Spanish. To be fair to all of the students, 6th grade parents can not serve as judges. If you are able to help, please contact Ms. Briceno at mbriceno@pvschools.net

​​Food Donations Needed for Teacher Fall Conference Dinner on Tuesday, October 24th

During the Fall Conferences week, we will be hosting dinner for our Sandpiper teachers and staff on Tuesday, October 24th. We will provide a BBQ Dinner to help nourish their appetites & get in "Hoe Down" mode! Volunteers are needed to provide food, as well as set-up and clean-up after the event. Unlike classroom activities, we are allowed to bring in food items we prepare at home rather than purchased from retailers. (In fact, our teachers always seem to prefer the made-at-home treats!) Click here to volunteer.

​Garden Help Needed

We all love our school garden and the kids can't wait to get back in there growing and eating their vegetables. The garden and your kids need you to make it happen! 

Recess Garden Volunteers - Ongoing

​Your Garden Team needs your help in bringing the opportunity to work in the garden during recess to all 630 students this year. The more parents we have the more often our kids can grow and eat their veggies. We are starting with Mondays. If we get enough volunteers for that day, we can add Thursdays. We need the most help from 10:45am-11:45am, but welcome help between 10:45am and 1:00pm.

The average cost per homeowner will be only an additional $1.50 per month.This will be a BALLOT BY MAIL ONLY election. All registered voters in the election jurisdiction get a ballot in the mail and they can either return it by mail, drop it off at a Ballot Center or vote in-person at a ballot center.
