Holiday Cookie Time17 December 2014, 8:20am
If you are new to Amelia Earhart, then you may not be familiar with one of our most popular Staff Appreciation efforts - The Annual Holiday Cookie Exchange. We ask that each classroom supply 4 dozen cookies (1 dozen with no nuts). Please sign up to provide Holiday Cookies for our amazing Amelia Earhart Teachers and Staff.
Cookies should be dropped off the morning of Wednesday, December 17th by 8:20 am in the Staff Lounge. Volunteers will repackage an assortment of cookies in festive containers and then the packages will be hand-delivered to our wonderful Amelia Earhart teachers and staff! Please note, we are also asking for one parent from each grade level to help assemble the cookie packages and give them to teachers.

Safeway eScrip Changes
Please be aware that Safeway has made a significant change to their eScrip donations. As of November 1st, 2013, Safeway will NOT donate to eScrip for purchases made with a credit card.
Earhart will only receive eScrip contributions for purchases paid with one of the following payment options:
Cash, Check, Debit Card, Fast Forward Debit Card, SmartCheck,
Safeway Gift Cards, WIC & CalFresh
Safeway's contribution to eScrip is a sizable portion of the Earhart PTA budget. Many families use credit cards at Safeway & we recognize this change is not ideal. However, please consider using an accepted payment option at Safeway to prevent impacting our PTA budget.
Please forward this message to your friends & families who support Earhart by shopping at Safeway.

One of our Fifth grader classes has chosen to work on a service project this year that will assist homeless and formerly homeless veterans in Alameda and the greater Bay Area. They will be supporting the work of Operation Dignity.
Operation Dignity assists homeless veterans and their families. They provide emergency, transitional and permanent housing for homeless veterans in Alameda County. They also offer comprehensive support services, nutritious meals and a strong peer community. Their goal is to help veterans rediscover hope and provide the tools needed to live a self-sufficient and stable life. They are providing a hand up, not a hand out.
Operation Dignity is always in need of hygiene kits for their Mobile Outreach Unit as well as "starter sets" for veterans moving into transitional housing right here on Alameda Point. In order to help with this need we will be collecting unused small size hygiene products throughout the year. Soaps, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. can be given to any 5th grader or can be dropped into the basket near the Pod 4 door any time throughout this year. Be sure to ask your friends, neighbors, and family members to help as well. Thank you for your support!
