PTA Membership & Donation Drive

Thanks to the many Earhart families and teachers who have already contributed to our PTA Annual Donation Drive. This is an important fundraising event that supports many of the programs that make Earhart Elementary a wonderful school for our children. If you have not yet contributed, please do so as soon as possible!

To contribute please click on the join/donate button. You also may pick up a blue donation envelope in the school office. Please return the envelope to the office or your child's teacher. Please also remember that we take split donations throughout the year so give what you can when you can.

If we reach our $60,000 goal, we will be rewarding our students with an Ice Cream Social in October, so please donate soon!

Volunteer for Morning White Zone Drop off

Let's improve the morning drop off congestion at Earhart School. Part of the issue stems from parents parking or idling in the white zones, preventing additional drop off. This caused a HUGE back up on Packet Landing. If a few parents were out in the morning, assisting with drop off we hope it will speed the whole process up & get more children to school on time! We hope that if we do this for just a couple of weeks that we'll develop good habits and a system that makes drop off easier.

Duties include:

  • Walk along the white zones [especially on Packet Landing]
  • Remind parents that parking & idling are not okay
  • Please sign up now via Google Doc

    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.
