COMING UP
SIGN UP NOW: Parent-Teacher Conf Week 11/27-12/1
Please sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences! 

Note that school will end at 12:50 pm each day during conference week (Nov 27- Dec 1) and our after school programs will begin at 12:50 pm.

Conferences are important opportunities to check-in with your child's teacher(s) to see how they're doing, so I encourage everyone to sign up for a slot. 

Each teacher handles their own classroom sign-ups and makes every effort to provide a range of time-slots to accommodate families. Check with your teachers for more information.

VOLUNTEER

Miraloma Needs You! Please consider volunteering!
#1: CALL FOR AN AUCTION CO-CHAIR!

2018 will be the 10th Annual Miraloma Auction and it is a smooth running machine with a rock-star team in place. We need an Auction Co-Chairperson to partner with our current (and seasoned) Co-Chair Catherine Homsey to help steer the team and make this the best auction yet!  

The annual Auction is our school's single biggest fundraising activity of the year. Proceeds from the Auction fund a variety of student enrichment programs such as PE, the STEAM lab, outside science, dance, class field trips, healthy snack, literacy programs, and more.  Make a difference in your child's education and join the team!
#2: CALL FOR AN INCLUSIVE SCHOOLS WEEK PARENT LEAD!

We need an ISW Lead(s)*, who coordinates our wonderful Inclusive Schools Week in early December. This person(s) will coordinate with other ISW volunteers, including working with the ISW Art Project sub-lead (Ryan Silvers). The ISW Lead is responsible for ISW communication to the community (through the newsletter, etc.) and coordinates volunteers to create in-class activities and present an all-school assembly (if time permits). In addition, the Lead helps coordinate the parent volunteers for our PE Ability Awareness stations as well as helps with the Family Potluck. [*If you have someone you'd like to share the work with, Co-Lead pairs are welcome!]

The ISW Lead is a short term position - work begins ASAP and ends after the first week of December. Check out our webpage if you're unfamiliar with ISW but would like to see what the week is all about!

Interested? Contact Brigitta Dougherty, PTA Volunteer Coordinator: volunteer@miralomasf.com
