Thank you for voting on our yearbook cover!
We had amazing participation for our 2021-2022 Yearbook Cover Voting Contest. A total of 283 students and staff voted. What a great way to participate in our school community! The race was close due to all the amazing covers we received this year. The winner will be revealed when you receive your yearbook. We also like to thank Mr. Bolin and Ms. Roshinski for leading a group of students to come up with our yearbook theme, "Just Open Your Heart."
"Hive" Five for Music Concerts
Last Tuesday, December 7th our hive was treated to its first in person music concerts in two years! Our wonderful 3rd graders, directed by Ana George, performed the musical "Journey into Outer Space," followed by our talented 4th graders playing their ukuleles and singing their hearts out. On Friday, December 13th, our 5th grade choir, band and strings performed under the direction of our amazing music teachers Ana George, Alyson Ancheta, Aryn Krijnen and Corey Miller. Thank you to all of the students for their incredible performances and "bee"-ing the source of our joy through their music. These concerts were made possible by your contributions to One Community LG.

Los Gatos Little League's mission is to develop fundamental baseball skills, while positively reinforcing lessons in teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship, both in victory and in defeat. Registration is open now for the 2022 season and we'd love to see more members of the LG community participate next season. Early Bird pricing goes away on December 18th, so be sure to register this week before prices go up. Registration will close on January 2nd.

Blossom Hill Home & School Club Needs Your Support!
Fun Fridays Needs Your Help!
Fun Fridays is looking for more family involvement. During lunch on Fridays, parent volunteers set up, manage, and put away yard games, quieter games (like the Jumbo Memory game), and often a craft or an art-related, service opportunity. 

Over dinner this week, ask your child what their favorite part of Fun Fridays is. The kids have a great time! Please sign up here to volunteer if you can. You can volunteer for just one Friday or as frequently as you would like. (Please ensure your volunteer requirements are up-to-date by completing the forms here.)

Also, please email Fun Fridays Coordinator, Amy Gregor, mom of 1st and 4th grader, if you have any gently used yard games, light weight blankets, or craft supplies for donation.
