PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Video Greeting From Principal Mittleman
Greetings Daves Avenue Families, 

Our amazing 5th grade teachers are hard at work in fine-tuning the details for the virtual promotion ceremony. Our program will be live-streamed on YouTube on the last day of school, June 4th @ 10:00 A.M. This will be followed by individual classroom Zoom celebrations at 10:30 A.M. 5th Grade parents, please look for a message from Fisher regarding 6th grade Math Placement information as well. 

As the school year winds down, I appreciate all families for your continued partnership and encouraging your child(ren) to participate in the learning opportunities.

COMMUNITY
Feed Our Heroes is a campaign, led by our Los Gatos Education community, to supply free meals to local healthcare workers fighting the coronavirus.

The campaign has already raised money for over 2,200 meals, but more are needed. All meals are sourced from Los Gatos restaurants, providing local businesses much-needed support during these tough times.

A simple meal at the end of a long shift is well-deserved thanks to our healthcare worker’s dedication and service. 

We hope you will join us and contribute to Feed Our Heroes.

Visit:  Feed Our Heroes

All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the funds go towards purchasing meals.

Feed Our Heroes fits alongside #FeedTheNeed BayArea, another local initiative led by the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce. #FeedTheNeedBayArea provides meals for the most vulnerable Los Gatos citizens (seniors, displaced workers, low-income families), while Feed Our Heroes supports healthcare workers.  Both campaigns are worthy of your support.
