There will be free popcorn, treats and water. Please plan on bringing your own blanket or towel so that your child can comfortably watch the movie while seated on the floor, as we will have limited chairs.
Please be advised that this is a family event with no paid supervision so you may not drop your child off and leave.

Art & Music Show 2015
Thursday, 26 March 2015
March is national Youth in Art Month & 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 & materials do you use?"
For Drop Off & Pickup ONLY!
Let's improve the morning drop off congestion at Earhart School. Be part of the “Solution Team” and pull forward, drop and go. It takes everyone working together to make drop-off and pick-up safe and efficient!
Please refer to this map for drop off and parking locations. Remember, be courteous to all families by following the outlined guidelines. These guidelines are meant for everyone and will make the morning drop off easier on everyone.
If you are available to help support this safety project please leave your name in the office. Thank you for your support and cooperation!

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!
