MEF 35th Anniversary Dinner: The official results will be announced soon, but the Moraga community came together night and raised a lot of money for our students. A huge thank you to all MEF volunteers who helped make this event come to life!
Thank You CP for Making the Read-a-thon a Success!
CP students are amazing readers! We raised $8,524.60 for the Camino Pablo PTA. These funds will support our One School, One Book program as well as many other PTA programs. Special congratulations to the 4 classes that had 100% participation (Adler, Brown, Nixdorff, and Robinson).
CP families also donated over 1000 books to Super Stars Literacy, an early literacy intervention program that supports at-risk early elementary students.
None of this would have been possible without the hard work of Adrianne Spencer and Jennifer Burke.
CP PTA Needs You:
Committee Chairs: Grab a friend or two to coordinate the Hot Lunch Program, PTA's biggest fundraiser, together! We also need someone tocoordinate Assemblies, Library Volunteers, the Read-a-thon, and the Spelling Bee.
Please contact Natalie Alderete if you are interested in learning more about any of these roles.
Front Circle Landscaping
Notice some work being done at the entrance to our school? We are excited to begin implementing our landscaping project to revise and beautify this area of the school. Funds raised from last year's Read-a-thon were approved to implement this exciting project which broke ground over the weekend. It is being headed by talented CP parent and landscaping professional, Laura Osteen. This project will include large moss rock boulders, native and drought tolerant plants and a live oak tree all carefully selected to incorporate Moraga's natural rural habitat and provide low maintenance plants to add seasonal interest along with a habitat for native birds and butterfly. We are hoping to make this a community project where students can help plant flowers and parents can gift their time and talents in a variety of areas. We will also seek your input on a new school sign as the one we have is deteriorating. Be on the lookout for additional updates and ways to help.
