- Hispanic Heritage Events

This year we will be holding several events honoring our Hispanic Heritage, including treats after the assembly next week. Rather than ask you to sign up for these events separately throughout the year you can sign up for all the Hispanic Heritage events all at once
Your contribution helps the Hispanic Heritage Committee provide artisan breads next week, mariachi music, special performers and taco lunch for Cinco De Mayo along with a year long series of festive celebrations! 

- Tips for Photo Days

Some tips and reminders for you regarding photo day:
- If your student has a tendency to get dirty/messy please pack an extra uniform top, just in case!
- You'll be receiving a link in November with all your student's photos and a information on how to purchase individual prints or packages.
- If your student is absent on Monday we will schedule a make up photo for them on November 3.
Contact with any questions/concerns.

- Costume Drive

We are collecting new and used costumes for kids in foster care all over Los Angeles thru an event held in Watts the weekend before Halloween. The kids will come and "shop for free" in a store set up with all of the donated items. 
What we are collecting: Costumes, accessories, masks & costume jewelry 
A large clearly marked black bin will sit outside of Ms. Taylors classroom and kids can drop items off on their way into school any morning between now and Friday, October 20th
Contact Elisha Hall with any questions about this drive ( More info here.
