AEF: Earhart "Toyology" class starting soon
"Toyology" is starting on Wednesday Novemeber 7 at Earhart. Class will be from 2-3pm for Grades K-4.
In these exciting hands-on science classes we will build a variety of toys and use them to demonstrate major scientific concepts such as energy, electricity, light, gravity, motion, friction, magnetism and simple machines. Each student will construct and take home a science toy in every class. A take-home science note accompanies each lesson and is a great way to continue the learning at home.

Join PTA Today!
Congratulations to Ms. Cheung's 4th grade class who has already reached 100% membership participation in the PTA - a pizza party is coming your way!
There are so many other classes that are within a few signups to reach 100%. Let's see if we can make this a school wide pizza party.
The community at Earhart is truly a unique place. The programs that the PTA is able to offer to our students and our school would not be possible without the support that we receive from the families at Earhart. Please join us and let's see how else we can benefit the lives of the kids and staff at our amazing school. Let's get to 100% and show the world what a special place Earhart is!

🚶 International Walk & Roll to School Day 2018
International Walk and Roll to School Day is Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Please join us in celebrating this important day at Earhart School by walking, biking or scootering to school! After walking or rolling to campus, please find the table set up by the bike racks to share how you arrived at school. We will be collecting data on a huge chart, so the students can see the healthy choices made!
Thanks for your participation!

Join the Earhart Bike Train!
What is it?
Safe Routes to Schools defines it best. “Bike trains are groups of parents and kids who ride together from the same neighborhood along a designated route…. Adults share the responsibility of getting the kids to school safely, which saves time for all of them, and the kids get exercise that helps them focus in school.”
Why should you join the Earhart Bike train?
Meet your neighbors
Help the environment
Why should you join the Earhart Bike train?
Parents and children will meet at 8:00AM SHARP at the corner of Mecartney and Island Drive.
Two or three parents (depending on how large the train becomes) will ride to school with all the children.
It’s that simple!
If you’re interested in joining the bike train, please contact Lisa Bryant to show your interest.
🚶 Morning Drop-off Safety Issues
As we settle into the school year, and the daily complications of the morning drop-off routine, here are a few friendly reminders:
There is no parking inside the drop-off circle, unless you are escorting a student in our Special Day Class or with a handicapped placard, or after 8:30 am if you are escorting a TK student.
The White Curb on Packet Landing is for active unloading of children. You must stay with your car. 2 minute maximum stay at the curb.
If you need to escort your child into school, PARK LEGALLY
Do not park at the Red Painted Curbs or block the Fire Lanes for the neighboring communities.
If you are waiting for another person after they have escorted a student into campus, you must park legally off campus. Do not wait for them either in the circle or on the Packet Landing White Curb.
It has also come to the attention of the PTA that students are being dropped off on Island Drive in the emergency turnouts - and sometimes along the road at the traffic light! Several Earhart teachers and parents have reported seeing this happening. This is extremely unsafe! It is better to be late to school than to have a child injured.
Thank you to everyone for understanding, cooperating and making our morning drop-off routine run as safely and smoothly as possible!
A/V Support Needed
Did you know that Earhart volunteers record every student performance on campus?
Our dedicated A/V team uses professional equipment to record each performance, then edits and posts those videos to the secure Science Lab website. This means as parents, we can simply sit back and enjoy the moment!
Each grade has multiple classes and performances and this is a BIG job that shouldn't fall on one or two sets of shoulders. We are asking for volunteers from each grade to signup to run the equipment in order to share the load.
If this is something you may be interested in, please reach out to our A/V Support Chair, Archie Tingle, for more information.
