School Portrait OrderingOrder by: 31 October 2014
Your child's school portrait proofs were sent home yesterday. There are two ordering options available. The first option is to order online. Mix and match packages, where selections from one, two or all three proofs may be combined. Each individual student picture gallery has a unique password printed on the proof form, so only your student’s pictures maybe viewed. Orders are shipped directly to your home.
The second option is to mail in your order. The proof/order form also serves as the return envelope for orders that may be mailed directly to HotShot Portraits. Payment should be enclosed and the purchase selections are indicated on the form.
Do not return order forms to the school office. HotShot Photography request that you order by October 31st.
Share Our Sweets3 - 5 November 2014, Office
Did your kids' Halloween sweets last well into Valentine's Day last year?
If that's the case or even if you just want to get rid of some of the excess,
consider donating the unwanted goodies to charity.
You may donate candy by dropping it off at school on Monday, November 3rd. There will be signs and a labeled tub at the front of the school and in the office until Wednesday, November 5th.

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!
