LEAVE THE CAR AT HOME (and the Stress) WEDNESDAY MORNING Morning drop-off can be source of irritation and frustration when you drive to school. Take a breather this Wednesday and walk/wheel to school with your child on International Walk to School Day using these safe walking routes. This global event began in 1997 and over time has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school. On 10/4 Mrs. Doyle and Mrs. Witzansky are looking forward to walking with students in the morning, and volunteers from Beach Cities Health District and our own 5th Grade Student Council Green Rep and Gator will be on hand to pass out participation stickers and stamps at various locations around school. Keep up the routine every Wednesday –or even more often– whenever you can!
Thank you to all the artists both young and old who came out to make their imprint on our new upper playground mural! We look forward to many years ahead of admiring this joyful beauty created by our very own Gators, along with artistic guidance from Kid Wiseman. Thank you to Gator parent, Patricia Johnstone, for capturing our art in action through her very talented photographic eye. Love the design? Apparel available for purchase, so you can rock the new mural design.
