    Welcome Back                                                                                                                  

    How to come and go:

     

    Our parking lot is closed to moving traffic.  There is no curbside drop-off.  Only handicapped placards will be accommodated with access to parking.  Children will be able to walk in the paved driveway circle, but not between the cars.  It is strongly recommended that you ride bikes or walk to school.  There is limited parking around our campus.  All who ride bikes are expected to walk bikes and scooters while on campus.  Bike parking is available at our bike racks.  Students will need to line up and wait their turn.  There will be help at the bike racks to direct you where to put your bike.  All gates into the campus will be labeled with numbers 1-9 beginning with the gate to the Kindergarten yard and moving around the parking circle clockwise.  Please go directly to your gate.  There are dots or airplanes outside each gate to use for lining up.  Find spot and stand there.  It is important not congregate or cluster together to chat.  Teachers will check each student in at the gate and students will move to line up dots inside the gate while the teacher checks in the other students.  There are no parents or volunteers inside the gates.  Again, we ask that parents do not congregate or cluster together to talk. 

    At the end of the day, children will be escorted by their teacher back to the same gate and dismissed.  Transitional K and Kindergarten will sign children out to families.  First grade teachers will dismiss children with visual recognition of their parent or caregiver.  Grades 2-5  will be dismissed when they reach the gate.  It is recommended you make a specific meeting place to meet your child either off campus or at the perimeter to alleviate potential crowding at gates.

    Earhart Coastal Clean-up Day

    Hello Earhart Ocean Guardians, Happy Earth Month!  our next coastal cleanup will be Saturday, April 24th, in front of the Earhart statue at 8:30AM.  If you have a bucket around the house or in the garage, please bring them with you.  Similarly, although we ordered twenty additional ones, if you happen to have robohands, it would help since we had quickly run out of them with so many of you who showed up to help!

    Our Alameda Free Library Librarian Liason and parent, Andie Cultrera, will share a padlet for Earhart students to upload Earth Month activities with which they get involved during now, through Spring Break, and the rest of the month.

    Earth Month, Earth Week and Earth Day                                                Yes, everyday is Earth day, but there are lots of exciting virtual and in-person events in which to participate starting April 17th through April 23.  Take your pick of the organization, and get involved. 

    StopWaste.Org                                                                                            This organization sponsors free fieldtrips to the San Leandro Transfer Station during normal in-person school.  In the past, our 4th graders have gone to the tours to get a real look (and small) of daily trash pick ups from the county.  This year, they are offering presentations by panelists on different subtopics around climate  action, everyday of Earth week.  Besides getting a look at the various activities and campaigns people are involved in around environmental action, and an in-depth understanding of climate issues, and a positive and warm feeling of mind and spirit connectivity that StopWaste personnel are so expert at promoting, you can get a FREE LUNCH VOUCHER.  There is a Saturday kick-off event on the 17th, and then you may pick which days to attend for the rest of the following week.  

    East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD)                                                 Whereas normally there would be a coastal clean-up hosted by EBRPD, this year, they are doing a hybrid version.   Basically, individuals would organize a clean-up around their own neighborhoods and post results and pictures on social media.  

    Alameda hosts a local organization that is dedicated to Climate Action.  You can join their email list.  

    Links for the library, StopWaste, EBRPD and Climate Action can be found below.

    Looking forward to seeing you on the 24th!

    Restore Our Earth

    Earth Day 2021's theme is "Restore Our Earth". For Earhart Ocean Guardians, Earth Day is everyday! We may not be able to gather together in person to celebrate the many ways we strive to make our Earth a greener place, but we can share our ideas and spread some joy.  Please post your words, pictures, or videos to the padlet  below to share how YOU work to Restore Our Earth every day.

    Earhart's Go Green Committee reminds you to practice the 6 R's of Sustainability every day: Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair. And always remember the Ocean Guardian Pledge: Conserve water and other natural resources, reduce use, reduce your eco-footprint, and reduce waste. Reuse or repurpose products to extend their usable life. Saving the planet starts with all of us!

    Thank you from the Earhart School Go Green Committee!
