Greetings Daves Avenue Families, 

As this year comes to a close, my heart is filled with gratitude for the Daves Avenue students, staff, and community. I am grateful for your patience and trust as we navigated this year together. Thank you to our amazing Home and School Club and all parent volunteers who helped to make this year special despite a few hurdles.

On behalf of the Cool Cat Community, thank you to our graduating Home & School Club Board Members. Becky Tanner (President), Lani Harr (Parliamentarian), Jill Cox (Secretary) and Barbara McInerney (Co-Treasurer). Your time and dedication to supporting our school has been invaluable. Best of luck in your future endeavors! Congratulations to all 5th grade Cool Cats on their elementary school journey. The 5th grade outdoor promotion celebrations were simply perfect. Thank you to Team 5th grade for making this possible. 
May your summer be filled with family, friends, and good memories. I look forward to welcoming students back to campus for the first day of school on August 12, 2021!
Have a PAWSitively awesome summer!
Kind regards, 
Jenna Mittleman, Principal 
Dear Daves Avenue Families,

After 8 years of being a Daves parent and 2 years on the Home and School Club Board, I am one day away from saying goodbye to both titles. This comes with very mixed emotions as we inch closer to Thursday, I am focused on the amazing memories both my kids have gained. I am also so grateful for the amazing friendships I've formed, for the opportunity to be on the HSC Board, and for our amazing teachers and staff. It sure takes a village and Daves Avenue has such an incredible village. 

Finally, I would like to congratulate the outgoing and incoming HSC Board members. You are a fantastic group of parents who make our school community stronger and to Jenna, you are PAWSitively amazing! Your positive energy and leadership guided us through this epic year. 

And to all, have a wonderful summer!

Los Gatos Union School District Parcel Tax That Funds 23 Teachers Is Set To Expire
There are many ways California schools receive funding but only two are under local control: donations and parcel taxes.
For over 30 years, Los Gatos has renewed Measure B, our district’s local parcel tax. While the “purchasing power” has declined over time (due to inflation) the measure still funds 23 teachers.
Measure B is set to expire next year.
The LGUSD Board of Trustees is investigating renewing and increasing Measure B on the November 2021 ballot. To learn more about this process, visit www.lgusd.org/renewalmeasure.
