Be Safe Out There

DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP ZONES  Follow the rules of the road.  Obey posted signs.  Keep goodbyes short and sweet in the drop-off lanes.  Children exit and enter the car from the passenger side only.  Drivers must remain with their cars in the drop-off lane or risk a ticket or a tow.  When parking in the lot pull all the way forward in the spot.

PARENTS ONLY  Meet Principal Rhonda Steinberg and your child's teacher.  Learn about school traditions and classroom expectations.

NEW EDP FAMILIES  Meet with Susana Anton 8/27 from 6-7pm in Room A-3 for details about the Extended Day Program.

Classroom Emergency Kits

9/15 ORDER DEADLINE  Kits have a 5-year shelf life, so order only if you don't have yours from last year to send with your child this fall.  Order an extra kit for EDP, or one for a sibling!


Trash Free Lunch Contest

Start the new school year off right and pack a trash-free lunch EVERY day! The student who brings the most trash-free lunches during September will win a free dinner for four at Rock & Brews-El Segundo. Plus, throughout the year, kids who are trash-free or sort lunch waste could qualify to win Fresh Brothers pizza or Sketchers shoes. Click here for more info.

Your Old Stuff = $$$ for GV

UNIQUE FALL FUNDRAISER  In keeping with our "green" philosophy, rather than selling a product in the fall, we will turn your unwanted stuff into money for our school!  Soft toys, stuffed animals, any style of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, and household textiles that can fit in a 13+ gallon trash bag and not pierce it are acceptable.  Check out goodthrift.com.
