Important! GM MEETING & PARENT DEVELOPMENT EVENT FRIDAY, APRIL 18TH, 6:00PM
Please join us in the Smith Library this Friday, April 18th at 6:00 PM. We will be voting in next year’s officers. We need your voice and your vote!

A presentation by Kathy Slattengren, M.Ed., from Priceless Parenting will follow. She will be speaking about “Conflict Management and Bullying”. Attend both of the events and leave the Childcare of children (Kindergarten to 5th grade only) to volunteers of Sparrow Club. Kids would indulge in many fun activities and Pizza will be provided. Donations towards their care are accepted and will benefit our “Sparrow” Violet.

Important! April 22nd Bond Measure
What you may know about the Apr 22nd Bond:

The original bond measure did not pass in the Feb 11 ballot even though needs remain the same and enrollment continues to grow

What you may not know about the Apr 22nd Bond:

Only 17% of the school community voted

Please, if you are one of the app.650 that not get a chance to vote last time or know someone who did not, spread the word and get those votes out by Apr 22nd. That’s how many votes we missed the bond by!

If you voted on the Feb 11 ballot, thank you, and please do it again. We need these votes to make the 60% required to pass this bond

You should have received the ballots by mail. Please ensure that vote "YES" on Proposition 1.

What may happen if the bond does not pass this time:

Reduce or eliminate all day Kindergarten
Double shifting from K – 12 resulting in no after school programs and zero periods added at elementary schools
Portables – cost about $300 000 each
Re-boundary
Changes to calendar (switch to year round school)
Change delivery method of district programs (Safety net, Pull out, Ell etc)
