Parents, please abide by the following rules regarding our before and after school Carline. 

DO NOT USE YOUR CELLPHONE WHILE YOU DRIVE. There have been parents on their phones during carline and it is hazardous to our students. Please refrain from being on your phone while you drive, especially on our campus. Distracted driving is dangerous!

DO NOT BLOCK THE STREET WHEN YOU ARE LINING UP FOR AFTER-SCHOOL CARLINE. We have received complaints that the cars are blocking traffic down Walnut Street and we do not want anyone to receive a ticket. Please keep as close to the curb as possible when lining up to pick up your child.

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our students and school safe!

In order to continue one of our most successful school fundraisers, we are looking for some Booth Chairs as well as some Booth Chair Shadows for our 2017 Summerfest. Shadows work alongside the Booth Chair for one year, then take over that area for the next year’s Summerfest. Some of these Chairs will be leaving the school as their last child graduates, so new Chairs are in high demand!

We are looking for new Chairs in the following areas…

2 Food Chairs to shadow Wayne Carvahlo and Adrian Lugo

Chicken Bowl Booth to shadow Brad Halderman

Event Chair to shadow Melinda Ganahl (this position does not require previous Summerfest Booth Chairing)

Sponsorship: Melissa Williams is looking for one to two people to take over sponsorship

Please contact Melinda Ganahl at moc.o1527217099ohay@1527217099lhana1527217099gadni1527217099lem1527217099 or (714) 928-2086 if you have any questions!
