Hello Jefferson families,
We have a PTA meeting tonight! Thursday, November 13th from 6:30-8pm in the cafetorium. Spanish translation and childcare will be provided. We will also have pizza for the kids staying in childcare.
Agenda items include: Principal’s report, the December Scholastic Bookfair and ice cream social, Giving Campaign, treasurer’s report, a discussion of the PTA calendar of events and more.
Also, today is the day to Dine Out for cooking and gardening! You can dine out at a number of local restaurants who will be donating a portion of proceeds to Berkeley school cooking and gardening programs. Consider dining out before or after the PTA meeting! See the message below for more details about the Dine Out fundraiser for cooking and gardening below from our program coordinator, Jezra Thompson:
On Thursday, November 13, 2014 we will partner with generous local restaurants throughout Berkeley-and dipping into Oakland-to co-host a wonderful food-filled day and night in support of a garden-based learning education for Berkeley Public Schools. This is a great way to try something new, dine out at a local business, and support your public schools in providing a garden-based education.
If you are an eager diner awaiting this sensational event, please plan on dining at one or all of the following participating restaurants. You can learn more about our district-wide program, our student reach, and teacher support, as well as get an updated list of participating restaurants on our website: http://www.berkeleyschools.net/cgp/
