Spirit Day

Friday, October 27th is Guardianship Day!

 

We are Ocean Guardians! Each day we make smart choices to protect our environment. On October 27 we will have a special Spirit Day celebrating our role as Guardians. You are invited to wear blue or green to stand in solidarity with our oceans. If you are feeling especially creative, accessorize your look with reused items (perhaps a bottle cap necklace? or a vest made of old bags?). Be sure to wear only things you can move in, since Ocean Guardians will have opportunities all day to take care of our community. Please also remember Guardians need their educations, so make sure not to wear anything that would make it difficult to participate in class.

 

Thanks,

The Spirit Committee

Pennies for P.J's Drive

Earhart Families,

Your generosity with the North Bay Fire Victims has been overwhelming.  At Earhart, we know that everything donated was from the heart and appreciated by the fire victims.  Now, we are going to ask for your generosity again but this time for the homeless children in Alameda.

 

Earhart School is teaming up with the Delta Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, an organization of women educators, gearing up for their annual "Sweet Dreams" pajama drive for homeless Alameda children.  They work with the district's McKinney-Vento Homeless program.  They are given a list of homeless children's ages, and sizes to provide them with pajamas, toiletries, socks, hats, gloves, books, stuffed animals, and food gift cards.  Ages range from infancy through high school.  Mrs. Frankel, our third grade teacher as asked us to support this annual service project at Earhart School by collecting "Pennies for P.J.'s"!  Each class will receive a box to collect donations.  Checks may also be made to the Delta Zeta Chapter DKG.  The purchased, and packed items will be given to the McKinney-Vento office as district for families to retrieve them.  Earhart School and the Delta Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International are proud to support this worthy cause and we thank you for your participation. 

 

The drive will take place Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - Friday, November 10, 2017. 

 

If you have any questions about this drive or other ways you can help, please contact Cindy Frankel at cfrankel@alameda.k12.ca.us

 


 

AUSD Homework Workgroup Survery for Parents and Students

AUSD Parents/Guardians-

 

Last spring, AUSD formed a Homework Workgroup to review the current homework policies and practice in the district. As part of their process, the Workgroup is surveying students, parents/guardians, teaching staff, and site administration about their homework experiences and beliefs. The Workgroup will use the results of the surveys to guide their next steps which will include focus groups at school sites and, potentially, drafting recommended policy revisions to be presented to the Superintendent.

It is very important to us that we have as many parent/guardian responses as possible so that the results of this survey represent the collective voice of Alameda families. Please take a few minutes to respond to the following survey. Your individual responses will be kept confidential and results will only be reported as a group – by grade span or overall. Thank you for your support in this important process.

If you have more than one child in AUSD schools, please feel free to fill out separate surveys for your homework experiences specific to each child.

Scholastic Book Fair

                              
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Earhart School!  The Book Fair will open on November 28th with an evening event and will run through December 7th.  (See PTA website for times.)  Not only is this an event the kids look forward to, it's also a relaxed place to get a little holiday shopping done (dare we say it... the holiday's are almost upon us.)

 

Did you know that almost 55 cents of every dollar spent comes back to the school and teachers after the event in the form of books and educational materials.  Just another way to support Earhart Classrooms.

 

The Book Fair Committee needs your help.  If you are interested in volunteering at this fun event, please sign up on MSA (My School Anywhere).  All volunteers receive a $5.00 book fair credit for every shift worked.
