Weekly Notes – 2/13/2018

South Oakland Shelter

Friday morning is the last chance to deliver items to school for contribution to the SOS. Thank you to everyone that has donated so far!  As a reminder this is a tradition started by our long time teacher, Ted. In lieu of gifts to our staff, parents are asked to please consider a donation to South Oakland Shelter.  This year the shelter is requesting the following items: diapers (larger sizes), socks and underwear for adults and children, toilet paper and paper towels, toothbrushes and toothpaste, laundry detergent and Peanut Butter and Jelly.  You can leave your contribution in the big room at school any day through next Friday. Thank you in advance for your contributions.

From Rob
