A Word from our PFA President
Hi Dolphin Family!

Can you believe our kids' summer vacation is coming to an end? In just a few weeks, they will be back in the classroom! A few important announcements:

First, if you did not pre-purchase your child's school supplies via EPI before the deadline in June, please check the School Supplies page of the PFA Website for the appropriate grade-level list of school supplies. Each child needs these supplies to start the school year!

Next, please make note of all the "back-to-school" dates above -- there is A LOT going on the first week of school! I look forward to meeting some new faces at the TK/Kinder Welcome Picnic, the two Back-to-School Nights we have planned, Registration Day for Grades 1-5, AND the PFA Parent Welcome Breakfast on the first day of school (I told you it was a lot!). If you ever forget a date, the 2018-19 PFA Calendar is located on Google Drive (it's a working document, so be sure to bookmark it and check back often!).

Last, be sure to save the date! Sunday, September 16th from 8-10AM is our "Back-to-School Breakfast" FUN-raiser at The Stand Calabasas! We can't wait to see everyone at The Stand, which opened earlier this summer! Tickets are limited, so don't delay... purchase them online today !

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer with your children -- see you soon!

Dawn Sue-Dare
2018-19 PFA President
