Hello Fellow Dragons,
Here’s what’s happening on Planet Cragmont right now.
Calling All Purple Forms! Come in, Purple Forms!
Our kids are competing to win a class party, and you can help. Just return your completed Cragmont Annual Fund “purple form” to your child’s teacher by October 4. Can’t find it? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You needn’t donate to participate, just tick the box saying you know about our $100,000 fundraising goal to maintain the programs we currently provide at Cragmont. And if you are able, please Give Now to support our effort—no contribution is too small, and every dollar makes a difference!
Necesitamos Voluntarios Para Día de los Muertos :: Call for Día de los Muertos Volunteers
Celebraremos las festividades del Día de los Muertos el 8 de noviembre y necesitamos voluntarios para artes, manualidades, y pintando calaveras. Si desea ayudar a planificar nuestra celebración, favor de comunicarse con Ana Vasudeo a email@example.com.
We will be celebrating our Día de los Muertos festivities on November 8 and are seeking volunteers for arts and crafts and face-painting. If you can lend your time and talent, please contact Ana Vasudeo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clip it Good
By Friday, September 27, please drop your clipped Box Tops for Education in the receptacle by the main entrance on Regal Road. It’s a free and easy way to help raise funds for our school. Look for the program logo on a wide range of products you already know and love.
Afterschool Enrichment Logistics If your students are not enrolled in LEARNS, please remind them to wait outside the Multipurpose Room until their enrichment instructor comes to get them. And please pick up your students from after-school enrichment classes on time, especially if you have TK/K students in classes that end 5 minutes before 1st-5th sessions begin. For details about enrichment classes, visit the website. To volunteer to help students get to enrichment classes in a timely, orderly fashion, sign up online.
Walk the Walk: Be a Safe Routes to School Helper
We are looking for volunteers to help chaperone Cragmont’s new monthly “Walking School Bus” and to support the upcoming International Walk and Roll to School Day on October 2. Please contact Maya Greenberg and Ana Vasudeo at email@example.com if you can help with either of these initiatives.
Help Our Teachers Get Some Grants!
September 30 is the deadline to apply for a classroom grant from the Berkeley Public Schools Fund. Please encourage your child’s teacher to apply, and see if there’s something you can do to help! Each year, Cragmont receives about $10,000 from this fund to help teachers improve their education practices and expand learning opportunities for our students. Teachers can access applications here.
See you at school!
Your Cragmont PTA
