This year the yearbook title will be chosen by YOU! The Yearbook Committee is excited for one of the Earhart 5th graders to be creative with the theme, "Collaboration".

Please include your first/last name and room number on your submission. One winner will receive a FREE YEARBOOK! Any questions? Contact Karen Holmes
Art & Music Show 2015Thursday, 26 March 2015
March is national Youth in Art Month and the theme for California is "Art Builds Bridges". The show is a time for each class to display their talents. Every class picks one project that's completed this school year. We also suggest creating "Artist's Statements" - such as, "What is your inspiration for your art work?" "What influences your work?" "What does your art express?" "What makes your art unique?" "What does your art means to you?" "What motivates you to create art?" "What emotions or ideas are you trying to convey?" "How does art make you feel?" "Why is art important?" "How can art be powerful?" "What tools and materials do you use?"
We will need help to make this show successful. Please see the sign up sheet in the Art Docent Room [Room 2] to volunteer! Got questions? Please contact Jen Dowell & Michi Shimada via email.

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!
