    Alameda Firefighters Toy Program

    The 2018 Alameda Firefighters Toy Program (AFTP) is a partnership of the Alameda Collaborative for Children, Youth, and their Families (ACCYF), Alameda Food Bank, Alameda Red Cross Youth, Alameda Firefighters, and other community organizations.  The Program will ensure that all low-income Alameda families who sign up at the Alameda Food Bank receive age-appropriate holiday toys for their children aged 0-12 and gift cards for youth aged 13-17.  This year we are especially in need of crafts, sports balls, and other items for our older children.  

    Earhart Office is now accepting all toy donations as well as gift cards and cash.  Toys will be placed under our tree (which will be up by Monday, Dec. 3rd) and gift cards and cash donations will be kept in an envelope.

    All toys will be picked up on Monday, December 17th.

    Heifer International Project

    Our 5th grade classes will be working on a service project over the next couple of weeks.  They will be raising money to donate to Heifer International. 

    The goal of this project hopefully will empower our students to be seeds of change, encourage students and families to reuse/recycle/re-gift, lift families far away to have a better life and to pass the gift on in their communities, and provide you the opportunity to clear out your drawers, closets, garages storage boxes, etc. 

    The 5th grade classes are collecting NEW and LIKE-NEW Holiday and Gift Items to sell to other students at Earhart School.  Gifts for adults, children, babies, pets, all are welcome.  Just be sure they are appropriate for a gift, rather than thrift store.  Items will be priced at $.05, $1, $2, $3, & $5.

    Thank you from the 5th Grade Teachers and Students

    Attendance Procedures

    Please make sure that you review the District Attendance Policy:

    • It is the parent's responsibility to notify the attendance office if your child is going to be out of school. 
    • If a student is absent for any part of the school day due to a medical appointment, a doctor's note must be provided upon return to school. If a note is not provided, the absence will be considered unexcused.
    • Students who miss 30 minutes or more of instructional time throughout the day without a valid excuse will be marked unexcused.
    • Unexcused absences count towards truancy.
