PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
Video Greeting From Principal Mittleman
Greetings Daves Avenue Families, 
 
I hope this message finds you and your loved ones well. Nine weeks of Remote Learning have literally Zoomed by and it’s hard to believe that the school year is soon coming to a close. Kudos to all Cool Cats who continue to persevere, despite a possible summer itch to stay up late and sleep in. Parents, thank you for continued positive encouragement to keep your learner(s) engaged as best as possible during these last few weeks. We continue to adapt to the needs of students in our new virtual environment and I want to assure you that Team LGUSD is working collaboratively to develop a plan for next school year. Information will be shared as it becomes available. 
 
As a friendly reminder, our 5th grade virtual promotion 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.


Here are some additional resources available to all Daves Avenue Families:

Be well,

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.
